Poetexts: Perfect Cents

Perfect Cents

If I had a penny for every time you told me you’d never leave me

and I believed you…

If I had a nickel for every time you promised you’d always be there for me

and you weren’t…

If I had a dime for all the times you said you’d fill me

and you left me feeling empty inside…

If I had a quarter for the many whys I asked for when you weren’t around

and even when you were…

If I had a half dollar for every time I wanted to leave you,

but I didn’t…

If I had all the sense in the world when it came to you,

I would have perfect cents because I would’ve left before you.

  1. If only we would pay better attention to our own inner guidance and trust it, we’d be so much better off. Great writing!
