Break up with Your Girlfriend

Inspired by the Song by Ariana Grande

oh, shit

why does this always happen to me?

I look across the crowded room

a sea full of people

at the party

to finally lock eyes with a handsome man's longing gaze

who is staring back at me

like he wants me

the look of the purest, most simple desire

a feeling so strong

it could not be contained

and when i see the look in his eyes;

when I meet his gaze,

I think that maybe

just maybe

he's into me

like I'm into him

and then

to my demise

I see her standing there.

and in that moment, I know that

I don't stand a chance.
