Everyone Falls in Love and I’m caught in Her Dragnet

A girl I never met just broke up with me
She was someone who couldn’t stand to be looked at
I turned away but there are strings still taut
A ricochet bullet from emotional crossfire
struck me and caused my blood to congeal
in the middle of my chest
It will incapacitate me completely
Until my wound is healed

Her absence is profound
Just now
But she never seems to get
Very far
She leaves reckless damage in her wake
A false hope of pride had me believe I’d stay afloat
Some lessons are learned at tremendous expense
Beauty is pain done well
