A Letter Left Unsent

by Britt Zimmerman

Sometimes I still think about you
That little boy smile (slash) devilish grin
your innocence like little house on the prairie
I wondered where you could have possibly come from
and now i wonder what exactly happened to that person

Lately you have become a cold november breeze
that blows right by me
slightly ruffling my feathers in a not so nice way

It seems as if I went from woman of your dreams
to casual aquaintance status
in the bat of your groupie girls eyelashes

and I am left in the shadows
with memories as my flashlight
and casual glances
that feed the embers
but never really ignite the fire

i've been on both sides, except rather than woman, boy, seems the worst of things always bring out the best in poets... odd isn't it?
