People Like You (Adam John Shexnayder- Crowley, LA)

     As bad as it hurts I'm glad I didn't get what I thought I deserved. I loved you like I've never heard goodbye. You loved me like you were ready for it. Well all place the blame and forget to take responsibility. You were scared of the unpleasantries. I was scared of lonely. I trusted you to fill the pool as I was diving in. I'll just pick up the pieces and pray they don't cut me. And one day when your regrets collect, and you realize that while searching for heaven you passed it up, you'll just take the "heat". My wounds WILL heal, but you will always be heartless. And we all know where people like you end up....
