for the soldier who made me into the other woman


    When I was a little girl, I thought that love would bring me flowers, and kiss me in public.

    no word I spoke was ever mean, 
    I had an air of mystery, 
    But… They went home.

    My praises were on all men’s lips, 
    they liked my smile, my wit, my hips, 
    they’d spend one night, or two or three.

    To five years ago
    No one else has made me feel that way
    The way you did
    It was something rare
    And beautiful
    But when…
