"Their Separate Ways" © December 2013
They went their separate ways,
Of which was only supposed to be temporary.
Learning of the women’s anatomy is how he spent his days,
While she spent hers in the library.
He thought that he knew what life was all about,
He thought that he had figured it all out.
When winter returned
And they were both to meet once again,
His changed attitude had her concerned.
Things were officially put to an end.
He had chosen one of the many bruised apples that had already fallen to the ground,
Too cocky and too scared that he would fall if he tried to reach for the one more profound.
When he begged her for a second chance
She walked away without a second glance.
