Wrote this on the bus and asked R.j if I should publish this. She said yes.

First attempt at actual rhyming poetry since primary school. Let me know how I did!

don't worry for me dear loverboy
with your eyes of ocean blue
with your cherry lips and raven hair
a heavily curs'd hue

    don't cry for me dear loverboy
your tears like sparkling rain
i'd drink them like fine wine
if you'd just forget my name

    don't think of me dear loverboy
you mind a shifting expanse
of treasures old and far away
inside your head they dance

    don't sing for me dear loverboy
i never liked the tune
of you silver tongue and gilded words
too much had been assumed

    don't write to me dear loverboy
i know you've stolen ink
from crows' feathers and fingertips
the final missing link

    don't speak of me dear loverboy
for you were not the one
and every time you say my name
my hard work comes undone

    but if you see me in the street
do not approach me, this i warn
for now i have a lovergirl
hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

    Wow, this is such an amazing piece! I especially loved how clearly I can see the "loverboy", with his "ocean blue" eyes and "raven black" hair, and "cherry lips"... I could go on and on! The picture you're painting with your poetry is so complex and amazing, honest, with that little touch of fury or humor!
    Awesome job!

    First two lines I was damn convinced it was about Lance why am I like this
    But once I got over that, I was in love. Stop being good- it's illegal.
