Ode To An Unlucky Guy This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   bet you showed everyone the flower from my necklace

and made up some story about why it's in the glove

compartment of your car



bet you told everyone about what a stud you are - how

you snagged a 17-year-old who pretends she knows

more than she does



bet you underestimated me, baby



bet you think i believe you when you say "i'm having

personal problems right now" and want me to just hold

on and wait until ...



bet you think i'll just sit right here at my computer

writing poems plays stories until the day you call and

say "everything's okay"



bet you don't know what i did to

the last guy (james)

who played me like a fool

... he has no friends now

wanna be james?

I really love this poem!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has a bitter sort of tone to it which works really nicely with the story, and i love the ending because it gives a sort of girl-power vibe... this is so good!!!!!!
