How Many Tears?

I wasted years
Four, to be exact
I'd tell myself I was over you
Then the next day
I would pass you in the corridor
Laughing with your friends
And fall for you all over again.

How many times?
How many tears?
Yet I can't stop myself
From being drawn in
Why can't I see what you're doing to me?

I just couldn't let go
You would build up my hopes
Only to bring them
Crashing to the ground
Every time I fell for it
And every time
I was disappointed.

How many times?
How many tears?
Yet I can't stop myself
From being drawn in
Why can't I see what you're doing to me?

That's it.
I'm putting a stop to it.
No more time.
No more tears.
This is it,
I'm over you.
For good, this time.
I'm making a stand.

But then I catch your eye
Across the room.
And I just can't look away.
Gazing deep
Into a sea of chocolate brown.
I know then, that despite
All my good intentions
I'm falling all over again.

How many times?
How many tears?
Yet I can't stop myself
From being drawn in
Why can't I see what you're doing to me?

A poem about unrequited love, and the hopeless inevitability of not being able to get over it.
