Middle School Love Triangle

8th Graders


I’m unknown to these people,

but I daydream about one

I got his snap

I thought about the future chats 

So I added him back


This romance bloomed from the love of feet

Kicking and kicking like my heartbeat

Footies bloomed and a love for him

Back and forth, back and back again


He said he didn’t like her

But like a flapjack, they got back 

Then gone again, then roped back

A broken love cycle


I wanted him but there was not another girl hot on his shoe                                                                      

Mexican Goddess pale, and tall                      

That will be my man, not after long  


He leaves me on “opened” and that gets me mad 

But only triples my love for him

I keep going back,

like look at his chin! Got me smiling, ‘cause it’s round and cute,

 and I do… believe I’m into all that


I tried to date other guys to get him off my mind but they never liked me, that’s fine


I want my man back,

He don’t want me like that, 

I don’t wanna hear all of that, 

Thanks for the snap,  

I’m gonna blow up your phone ‘til you take me back


Our love goes between different ages     

You’re a youngin I’m a old lady

Our minds simply are not up to date

You left me high and dry all because your mother doesn’t like color

It’s okay I’ll save the butter… for later
