I Wanted To Leave You Behind In That Diner

Amy P., Pompton Lakes, NJ By AmyLeigh, Pompton Lakes, NJ

I could say that I am over you
but I'd be lying through my teeth

I know this because the thought of you
stained every word I wrote
on the napkin I left
between the cushions
of the booth
in our favorite corner
of that diner
across the street
from the movie theater
where we first split
that medium popcorn
and large

I really like the way you set up this poem. The lines flow very well. At first I thought this would be a typical "I miss you poem" but this is amazing!
