Queen Badass

This is one I just wrote, really quick. I don't care if it's bad. It's the first poem I've written in a very, very, very long time.

Everything I want
or think I want
Winds up floating away
Hitching a ride on the wind

I bought into your lies
I paid the price
But you can keep the change
I know you're not going to change
As badly as I want you to

It's been a long time since I felt like this
But join the ranks
You ran me through the wringer
I was up and down, even as much as you hate that cliche
And even as much as I tried to stay safe
I had to let you in

I just don't think you had a clue
I was tentative. I knew I probably shouldn't trust you
And you were lucky No. 13
I don't think you'll ever know how lucky you were
Just like you didn't know me

And I knew that, and I didn't care
I do now.
