No Future - Poem by Kristina Lybbert

Why is it every time I try
to find myself a new guy
I always seem to find
the ones who make me blind
So blind I don't know how to act
Blind to an important fact
The fact that there is no future

Maybe he doesn't like me that way
There's nothing more to say
Can't change the way someone feels
Guess I'll just drag my heels
Cause there is no future

Maybe his family won't like me
Won't even try and see
Sometimes happiness doesn't matter
When culture is the higher ladder
Should've known there was no future

Maybe he's not over his ex
So all he looks for is sex
Which is all fun and games
Until you see you have different aims
Yet again there is no future

He says sweet and charming things
That always makes your phone dings
Things that make you fall for him
Even with chances lower than slim
Once again there is no future

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Well laying in bed with a guy I've been sleeping with for about a week we were talking about what we are to each other and he claimed that I just needed someone in my bed. I got super offended by this but then I started thinking about it and realized he was right. After doing some major reflection on my life I realized what my big problem was, and saw exactly where my life was going.
2nd Verse is about my 2nd boyfriend, an ex that I'm still friends with mostly because who ends a friendship over a 13 day relationship.
3rd Verse is about my 4th boyfriend and most recent ex, who I'm still in love with, but his family made us end thing due to cultural differences.
Verses 4 and 5 are about the guy I've been sleeping with recently. He's constantly saying things that makes me think he's really into me but then I find out that he's never going to get over his ex so I have to try desperately to stop falling for him before I end up getting hurt like I always do.
