Slapjack Boys

She told herself she didn’t love him

She knew it was a lie.

It was so damn annoying

To fall in love with every guy

All they had to do was smile

Or even breathe or just frown

She could take the darkness in her head

And turn the world upside down

Together they would love and laugh

And start a family as well

But then she came back to reality

And saw her message ‘read’ and… well…

He hadn’t replied for a few days

Her eyes teared and she curled up

She had hoped this one would stay

But sometime, she had to wake up

But she knew it would be alright

Because her heart was a fickle thing indeed

Give her a few more days

And another boy will give her what she needs

For she is a world within herself you see

And its not the boy himself she lusts after

Its finding another soul who will really stay

In her made up happily ever after.

The real ones fell away like cards in slap jack.

But in her memories and imagination they would always come back.
