Jens Nicholas Jebsen- A Poem

Song For A Divorce

You used to take my breath away,
With your eyes like little green fires;
But now and again when you look my way
I see two funeral pyres
You used to make my blood run hot,
When you walked into a room;
But now your touch feels like a plot
To facilitate my doom

I used to show up in your dreams, 
Wearing nothing but my skin;
But now I appear in your harebrained schemes
As you plot to do me in

If I could do it all again,
I'm not so sure I would;
But you'll always be my perfect ten
I'll miss you more than I should.
