My Teacher

by TiaDee

I studied and did all that you asked,
but your love test, I could not pass
I attended every class that you gave,
sex 1203, cooking 102, good woman 1012
I even attempted to do all the extra credit
But no matter what, your love was not there
for me to hold on to it
I listened closely to what you said,
took note after note, page after page
I passed every quiz you gave,
but still you didn't stay
I was a student of yours hoping for the best grade,
I clung to you like a teacher's pet
And after all of that I still feel like I received an F
No matter what I did it was never enough; I couldn't be the best
No matter how I studied I could not pass your test
And I never stood out from the rest
Your love was the 100 percent I strive for with each class you gave
Always did good, not once did I miss behave

But at the end of this course you sent me to my next class
Heartbreak 101, and with honors, that I did
