Upside Down Exit Sign (Valentine's Day Special)

i broke my arm trying to be cute for her
“she looked at me with big, bright eyes”

i asked her mom for a ride to the hospital
i insisted on walking down the hill, to the car with them
to keep my adrenaline level up
compound fracture in my left forearm
i hallucinated as a result of the pain medication
as i waited in shock and in pain
waiting to pose for the x-ray machine

a year later i kissed the girl
as her boyfriend sat on the other side of her

we started dating, started having intercourse
i broke up with her
kept my distance
and didn’t finished school

i got my g.e.d.
she got out
went to college
pre-med
i’m so proud of her
i hardly know my own language

so pretty in her picture
she was still so kind when i apologized, years later
so close to valentine’s day was bad form

it’s not often anyone becomes infatuated with me anymore
i’ve since my errors learned the need
to learn to love
in the presence of errors and all

she’s still younger than me only in numbers
we’ve both grown
she possesses what it takes to be out on her own

she’s way out of my league
and still gave me the time of day to chat
and was understanding as i apologized

i’d still pay her the proper time it takes to escape
if ever she’d allow me to hold the ladder in a time of our need
