I Hope You Don’t Become Another Sob Story

I hope you don’t become another one of them.
Another story of how I fooled myself,
a reminder of my bad decisions
another name to add to the list of people
I don’t want to see again.
I hope you don’t become another story
I tell my daughter
when she asks me about the men
she needs to avoid.
I hope you don’t become another lesson
God teaches me the hard way
I hope you don’t become another joke
my friends use to remind me of my embarrassing past.
I hope you don’t become another person
my mom wishes I never met
I hope you don’t become all the things
she told me to look out for
I hope you don’t do all the things
she warned me you might do.
I hope you don’t become another classic
in my book of relationships;
same ending
same goodbye
same mistake.
I hope you don’t become another story
I write about for the broken hearted
I hope you don’t become another face
I’m forced to forget
I hope you don’t become another stranger
who once knew too much about me.
I hope you don’t become another story
the universe just wasn’t rooting for
I hope this story is full of sparks
I hope it’s full of flames
that won’t burn me in the end.
I hope you don’t become another wound
I need to heal from
or another scar
I need to conceal. TC mark
