The Many Feelings of a Single Lady
As the weather grew hotter and the stormy season began,
As I was busy with everyday affairs,
You appeared to pop back into my life again,
So unexpectedly, without a care.
The funny thing is you tried talking to me,
several times in the past.
But people told me to leave you alone,
let it be.
So I assumed your efforts wouldn't last.
And boy was I wrong!
You took the initiative to speak,
Like sweet melodies to a song,
Your words were unique.
You told me you always wanted to,
get to know me.
That I'm a good match for you,
expressing how things should be
between you and me.
But a mutual friend told me to leave you alone,
that you were no good.
Not even to talk to you on the phone,
for things will not turn out good.
But that was five years ago,
now here we are.
Talking for hours or so,
about relationships, food, and cars.
Recalling the mutual friend's advice,
I got scared and pushed you away.
Although you thought it wasn't nice,
I had a reason to keep you at bay.
I'm afraid of being hurt,
I'm scared of you,
you're nothing but a big flirt,
and a heart breaker too.
Despite your plea,
you respected my feelings
and let it be.
You agreed to stop talking to me.
One month later and I'm still thinking about you,
Your heartfelt plea and determination,
and I wonder if you think of me too?
In time I'll make sense of the situation.
Did I do the right thing?
Was I right in pushing you away?
So many feelings this bring
that I wonder to this day.
It sucks having mixed feelings
Should I text you to say hi?
Or allow time for healing?
Or let this officially be goodbye?
