Jeans: A Poem

Author:

I wish I could shrug you off,

Like a well-worn pair of jeans,

That I grew out of,

When I was 17.


I wish we could have stayed together,

But we slowly stretched apart,

Like reluctant seams separating,

That were fated from the start.


I wish I could shrug you off,

Like a well-worn pair of jeans,

That I grew out of,

When I was 17.


I thought I'd lost you forever,

But you still live on in my head,

Like a stain on all my thoughts,

You're still hanging by a thread.


I wish I could shrug you off,

Like a well-worn pair of jeans,

That I grew out of,

When I was only 17.
