Women like me
we ruin everything,
ruin everyone

are too much passion,
fall in love too easily
confuse admiration
for romance in minutes
think we have to touch
everything we like
act on impulse
even though we’re
old enough not to

so, don’t blame
them for leaving-
it takes a kindred
spirit, to know
what this magic feels like
it takes bravery
to choose us
even when
we choose ourselves
