No Third Time, Please

Semester one was hard on me
I fell too fast, not once, but twice
Winter break helped me realize
Nothing was what it seemed
But upon return, everything changed
Just one look, and I fell back there
I fell for the one again, harder than before
Only to fall too hard for a third one
Both pulled my life into hell
Further than I’d ever been
Only when summer finally came
Did I finally find my way out
But now, thinking about semester three
I’m worried… And thinking about that one
I fell for him twice already
I hope the third time’s not the charm
