I don't know if I even like this one but it's how I feel I guess.

My Jet Pack Girl

I know you have to leave

I know that who you are

Is not who’s in front of me


I don’t know how 

We’ve even come this far

I know that you’re a girl

Who’s mind is with the stars


I guess the girl you used to be

Never made it too the moon

I guess we were too young

And we fell apart too soon


I can’t believe I thought

That the dust on us was stars

That we could fall in love

Without losing who we are


It’s hard to go from sleeping

With stars burning up your arms

To sleeping all alone

With no light inside your heart


When they ask me where you’ve gone

I’ll tell them outer space 

That you’re with a better girl

And I’m in a better place


I forgive what you’ve done

I can’t forgive who you are

I’d stay in space with you

But I can’t see through your stars

"I forgive what you've done, I can't forgive who you are...." I was Wondering, Leah, this is wonderful. How did you possibly separate the deed from the doer...? "....Fall in love without losing who we are...." is the sister to "...what you've done....who you are.."

Kudos! Well done.

Very,very fluid and thought prevoking.Like lying on your back in a remote spot with thoughts of loves won and lost and won again.This poem will stick to ones ribs and the heart inside.
