For as Long as I Remember

nano poblano 19

I got burned

for getting

too close to fires,

but I won’t end up

one of those

sad-ass liars. 

 

I’ve been a sucker

for as long

as I remember,

I’ll be a motherfucker

before the

first of December. 

 

Because only

two things happen

when you’re unguarded. 

You’re either loved

or you’re

brokenhearted.

  1. A friend of mine once told me that I’m just a porcupine, it’s not my fault if people try to get too close when they knew what I was to begin with. I thought it was funny at the time.. but now… not so much – maybe I’m different now though – I try to keep my needles covered up.
