Before I met you, I did not believe in giving people second chances.
But then I saw you, with your wild eyes, wild hair, soft heart.
I was drawn to your gentle words, dark moods, sweet promises.
I fell for everything about you.
I let you into the mangled mess of my heart,
I let you sift your way through the rubble.
Somehow, you always managed to find the treasure in another man’s trash.
I shared with you a side of me that I barely knew existed.
Together, we ruled the world.
Our time together taught me so much,
But it is the last lesson you gave me that I hold most dear:
It is not wise to give people second chances.
