About the Poem

This is a poem for those of us who naively refuse to take "no" as an answer and/or "suffer from amnesia." May we one day lose hope and never go back again.

Fool Again

I guess I love it when you break my heart,
broken mirrors are nothing to broken memories,
and my memory is broken,
I always forget that you broke my heart,
and here I go again, a fool again,

but I don't care baby,
because my memory is broken
and I can forget the answer that you gave-
twice a negative and still I think positive,
fool again,

You're my best friend,
but this is a job with no added benefits,
with no chance for a raise,
an occupation for hopeless optimists,
a fool again,

I wandered away
and it just took two rainy days,
and now I wandered myself back again,
just in time to seek my sunny day,
I know stupid mistake,
fool again,

I guess I love it when you break my heart,
I'm just a hopeless optimist,
here I go again,
always a fool again.
