"Flash in the Pan" is a poem featured within the "Love" section of Prevail. It's an abbreviated retelling of an experience I had with a former love interest. As the saying goes—if I knew right then what I know now... I'm happy love led me to where I am now.
Flash in the Pan
You came in—
A nice guy,
Cute and intelligent,
But it turned out to be doublespeak.
You had my attention instantly;
Thought I was fallin’ for you.
You turned me on in all the right places,
But then everything flipped.
The potential was lost,
Gave way to bullshit and childish games,
And I lost interest just as instantly.
But I guess the signs were there
It wouldn’t last.
You came in and just as quickly went out—Like a flash!
