Boy Wonder

You looked at me with those innocent eyes and spurted your life

I looked at you right in the eye whilst you tried to dazzle me with your tries

All I could think is I’ve done it again

Found a boy who doesn’t get it

Anxiety and sadness but what about me?

When will I find a knight to save me?

I listen and listen and again I wonder

How is it I manage to find these boy wonders?

Like you think your world is worse than mine

Honey I’ve done all at least twice

But still you’re here

And now I feel guilty

I should give you a chance

And hopefully you won’t be too needy

You look at me with those innocent eyes and all I want is you to be by my side

But part of me feels you’re needing someone strong

That ain’t me

I’m too far gone
