No Chance

I should've known better
but it took reading
her blogs to realize
I never had a chance.

I don't know who he was
or how long they dated,
but he must've done
something drastic to make her

sit guarded and defiant,
determined to never
be hurt again,
determined that the next man

had to meet her mandates
and follow her directions.
I should've known
I never had a chance.

But what man can know?
She laughs and smiles
and enjoys life as if
her world is an open book.

But within her happiness
lies a fortress that
guards her heart and
flies red flags at the sight

of any man that approaches.
Now I know and I'm fearful
the others may feel like me.
There's no chance.
