Wrong Guy

Wrong Guy

A Poem by azaleablue
"

A short poem, soon to be spoken word. It is a personal one, but I've been told its pretty relatable.

"
I’ve never seen such a foggy city like the one in my mind, clouded with thoughts of you.
There was a time before you when I could speak my mind, when I knew my left from my right.
You managed to embed yourself in my skin…
Two years of showers and still I manage to feel the touch of your skin on mine…
Your cologne fills my airways and I cough to keep from choking to death.
Goodness God it’s been two years and I still wait for your call at 4AM like the star gazed girl I was, in love with the wrong guy.
You were not a bad guy, a nice guy really a genuine guy, but just the wrong guy.
I remember the day you said you’d be leaving. 
The makeup I wore, everywhere but the place it needed to be. 
And how I yearned to have a say in if you stayed or go away.
But you had to go, you had to leave
You left me.
I remember the way your fingers played symphonies, symphonies for me.
And remember how I let your words play my heart.
The master of my own deception.
I was a good girl in love with a good guy…
the right girl in love with the wrong guy.

Thank you! :)
It's a story we have all lived.

I really like the dynamic nature of the font, growing when it needs.

I know this scenario but, in a different color over a much longer time span. Instead of me being pastel blue over our dismantling I was Navy dark blue and, for years. I was a good guy in love with the wrong girl and for much too long a time.
