10 Reasons

Before I dated my ex, we were close friends. Back then, he gave 10 really specific reasons why he wouldn’t date someone like me and it consisted of the imperfections I had like my issues and stuff. I thought it was unfair cause he only gave me 2 really superficial reasons why guys should date me. Later did any of us know that we’d play a bigger role than friends in our lives. Although it has ended, I liked the story of how it started, how it begun. I think it’s a beautiful process. Good things come to an abrupt and tragic end but that’s another poem.

10 Reasons
By: Anita Marie

At the beginning, he gave me 10 reasons why he shouldn’t date me
I’m too boring, I’m weird, I’m a bit crazy
I have issues and I’m too ambitious to want to leave a legacy
All these imperfections of me, he could see clearly

When I asked him if he had a list on why he should date me
There were only 2: I wore glasses and I had a husky
Barely reasonable reasons and I appreciate the honesty
But seriously? Glasses and a husky? That’s all he could see?

Okay fine, forgiven, besides it’s not like I’m ever gonna date him
He’s moody, just as crazy, with no passion to win
He’s my friend, and the chances of us dating are slim
So why should I bother unless feelings start to begin

Uh, to my surprise, they begun too soon
Yes, destiny, I am questioning you
Why did you send over that moon
That made him think our love was to bloom?

What happened to that 10 reasons he gave me without second guesses?
What happened to number 7, the part where I’m full of distresses?
Did he really forget I can be easily stressed?
That I stress over simple things like how to get dressed?

Most of all, where did these feelings come from?
I need a clear, precise and logical explanation
Is this pity? Flattery? Or a mutual admiration
Can I go on escaping his gestures and love declarations?

Then I realized, I had to give in to it
Love cannot choose who you fit
And for him, I chose to put aside my wit
To just sit down and enjoy the trip
