When I was young I cracked my crystal ball

Broke a few mirrors, and set fire to my fortunes told

Or I would have known to avoid you

Since then I have tossed a few pennies down the stairwell

Scared I would never be scared enough

To avoid finding someone like you


Cascading thoughts taking me on a ride to nowhere

Taking risks making mistakes making me beautifully strong

But not strong enough to avoid you


Crying tears of anguish only I can feel

Sitting alone again hurting and wishing

I had avoided the likes of you


Then looking back I hear echoes of laughter

I see hands clasped tight, eyes locked secure

Now that you’re gone your warmth seeps back

And I find myself missing you and glad

I didn’t avoid someone like you
