One Hit - Poem by Jade Leven

you told me over and over that it was just one night
but what if you didn't mention the other five hundred times
he's more than just some boy, he has love, he has a name
but the way you throw it around, I find it hard to believe that you have changed

I could have seen this coming from a mile away
you contradict your actions every time you say
you're sorry and he can handle it, because he knows that love gets rough
but I know, when you're shattering a heart, one hit is enough

sometimes I feel guilty for being so close to someone like you
you're everything I thought I hated, and you don't know what you put him through
are you growing up too fast, or am I growing up too slow?
and why does it kill me to see someone I love hurt someone I barely know

I could have seen this coming from a mile away
you contradict your actions every time you say
you're sorry and he can handle it, because he knows that love gets rough
but I know, when you're shattering a heart, one hit is enough

good intentions, pretty face
not so innocent, doesn't care for the catch, craves the chase

I could have seen this coming from a mile away
you contradict your actions every time you say
you're sorry and he can handle it, because he knows that love gets rough
but I know, when you're shattering a heart, one hit is enough

one hit is all it takes
one hit is enough

    Liked your poem, sometimes we stand by and watch knowing the wreck is about to happen but are left helpless by the knowledge that good intention is often misunderstood

    I like the title of your piece :) It reminds me of my favourite song - U2's 'One'...
    I can’t believe it I was just singing it :)
    Excellent write... Yes, you are right - one hit is enough to destroy love between people... One bowl of goulash can bowl up everything...
