Ok, this is a new poem i just cranked out. In order to really read this you need a little background. Esentially the "you" i'm speaking to is a girl I met up at the college. (Kelley, i remember I talked to you about it). The thing is she reminded me of some people I used to know (and ex-girlfriend no doubt) and i just got around to rationalizing the comparison. What come out of it was this:
Hollow words imply all we knew but never wished to know,
I read between the lines don't you know it's still the same?
You remind me of her only under a vastly different name,
While I never stop at the first sign of things begun,
I always know when it's the right time to run,
You face is new in my world but sadly your story's already been told,
They've all had big brains and a really pretty face,
but a total lack of self-control was thier last fall from grace,
You know I really want a girl with a little bit of soul,
Not somebody whose heart looks like a bullet hole.
