Fifteen, fiery eyes and an open heart

That was me—not you

A little bit manic and a little bit insane

Anything but afraid

Any reaction I received

From you

Was taken as a sign of …

 

(why did you lead me on?)

 

When my expectations,

You know those ones were put in place by

movies like…

 

pretty in pink or…

what a girl wants or even…

Gardenstate

 

(You never even tried to get pussy? What was your motive?)

 

when those weren’t met

I switched to…

 

Eternal sunshine

Me and you and everyone we know

Movies that remind me our love is just

 

Different. Unique—romantic in the intellectual sense

 

It went on like this for years, (selfish, selfish, selfish)

So in love with myself,

I did not know the meaning of the word,

 

Unrequited

–Veronica
