He Didn’t

He loved his mom

He loved his car

He loved his jokes

But he didn’t love me.

He picked his laundry 

He picked his fights 

He picked his nose 

But he didn’t pick me


He knew his Maths 

He knew his Physics 

A little bit of biology 

But not our chemistry 

He called the shots 

He called the tune

He could call anyone’s bluff 

But he never called me. 


So I backed off 

Turned my back and I walked away 

Ran as far as my feet could take me 

And grounded my feet in a most solid place 

A place where I am more appreciated 

I appreciate my finding this place 

This place where I truly belong 

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
