Tough Love - Poem by Chelsea Crisman
Hard shell, strong mind.
Cold heart, no time.
Forgotten feelings from time left alone.
Wounds so deep they didn't show.
A smile as fake as Pamela Anderson's breasts.
To capture my heart, you had to be better than the best.
I didn't need love or want your time.
It took one laugh for you to be mine.
One smile of yours, and I was taken aback.
In my heart of stone, I felt a crack.
The rest was my own fault,
When my walls crumbled to salt.
As we said goodbye, I wished to die.
Who was I without you by my side?
Looking back, I let out a laugh.
Lessons are learned from seeing the past.
I rejected your love as you held on strong.
When you turned away, I saw I was wrong.
Too late for me, too bad for you.
You were the joker, I was the fool.
Lucky for me, I quickly regenerate.
My shields are up and will not break.
So ignore me baby, as you talk to her.
Forget me love, when you hunger for more.
There is no other you, but there's not even an imitation of me.
You'll never find what we had-just you wait and see.
