I Was Wrong

Another offering from my Bedside Draw. Probably written when I was sixteen or seventeen.


I’ve played things over in my mind

And I see now that I’ve been blind

I was struck dumb by your beauty

I forgot to look inside


You plagued my thoughts for a week or two

Ever since I caught sight of you

I told myself that this is my time

But in my heart I knew it wasn’t true


I’m glad I found out pretty quick

Before I acted like a total dick

At least I didn’t fall too far

And land alone, feeling sick


I’m moving on it’s good to know

There’d be no point giving it a go

Failing at something I didn’t even want

A painfully ironic blow
