redeeming qualities

when she saw you she knew

(even though all her
friends told her the contrary),
that even though you had not a cent 
to your name, even though 
you had a string of broken 
relationships left in your wake,
even though you mentioned that
your lives were not 
compatible (in any way, shape or
form), even though you didn’t 
want the things that she wanted in
the “future” (hell, you don’t even
use the mother****ing word),
she swore that she could
fix
you,
she swore that she could
make 
you
right,
she swore that she could
adjust
your
settings,
so you looked & acted just a lil’ more
like
she
wanted---
oh, what a ****ing shame that all these 
plans & strategies 
that she had ready to apply,
were not redeeming qualities
in
your
eyes.
