she never… [poem]

she never really got it
the way you felt when she smiled in your direction
or the way her voice made your stomach flip every time
she saw you as temporary
a fun game to play in the summer heat
before life got serious again
you mooned over her
a sad puppy trailing after her in hopes of gaining
one more tummy rub
one more round of fetch
but she never was a dog person
or maybe
maybe she just never wanted a pet
someone so dependent on her for affection
you can’t blame a free spirit for her untamed ways 
or her inability to handle commitments she never asked for
let’s be honest
you knew her wild heart
long before you yearned to hold it as your own
