That Guy

Your heart is a weapon

I was an easy target

with those parts of me

that are still

just naïve enough

to want to believe people

instead of questioning

every word,

moment of silence,

stressed syllable,

and broken date.

I wanted to not be jaded,

so I wasn’t with you.

I could say that I learned

my lesson,

but it’s not like I won’t

ever try again.

And I think I had fun,

but I’d have to remember

everything else

about you

to answer that question.

So, no thanks.
