Poetry

"Huh?"

A while back you shot me down.
It wasnít just an ordinary rejection though.
You just sorta stopped talking to me.
Iíve yet to figure out why.

Iím ok with it now.
In fact, it only took about an hour and two Coronas.
But, recently Iíve been thinking about how sorry I am for you.
Iíve yet to figure out why.

Just when you thought youíd forgotten about me, I was there.
Sitting, standing, smiling in the recesses of your mind,
Flooding your body with a kaleidoscope of emotions.
Youíve yet to figure out why.

The other day you saw me at The Hub and waved.
I didnít notice, or, perhaps I noticed and didnít care.
But you were left standing, waving at a crowd of strangers.
Youíve yet to figure out why.
