A Lesson (Un)learnt

A poem by Kelsey Edwards

Being alone is harder than I thought

I try to remember what I’ve been taught

checking Last Online is no good for you

don't check your chats you know there’s nothing new


My mistake for thinking you were different

all boys are on a sexual mission

not my intent but that’s how it happened

after we first fucked your interest dampened


I met with your Mum I’m finding this hard

you even showed me your Pokémon cards

now I’m crying before there was an us

I look at myself I’m filled with disgust


Still I’d take your call no hesitation

tangled mess I crave your complication
