    I’ve listened to you countless times,
    Ears and eyes wide open while you
    Told me lies of love’s dream
    Prancing around in Prada panties,
    Well past midnight
    Drinking wine and smoking funny cigarettes,
    Waiting like a fool
    And still I forgave you the next day
    When you told me thoughtless lies
    I justified the unjust
    Because I just wanted a man

    I’m not stupid, silly, shameful, uneducated
    Maybe self depreciated,
    But you played me like I was all of the above
    I sat up listening to old dusty albums, eating stale popcorn
    Thinking about the first time every I saw your face
    And realize that it wasn’t really you
    But me denying myself true love,
    Because I didn’t want to wait
    For the “right” person to come along
    Because I’ve given up on the right person,
    So now I’m here with you
    As unhappy memories flooding my brain
    Placing track marks on my heart
    Driving me insane
    Making my soul hard for the next person,
    As you glide through my self esteem with ease
    Leaving me lifeless
    With no ambition for loves dream

    Although without having found at least a few Mr Wrongs,
    you wont recognise Mr Right when he does come along.
    Great piece poet.
