Next time, take aim

.........You

         p
         e
         d 
         into
the left side of my life
as if from the sky
         p
         l
         o
         p
         I didn't want you  but
                              p
                              l
                              o
                              p
                    you dropped
                and you stopped
         and stared in surprise
from those emerald bedroom eyes

you ask me why
it happened to you
well I don't know why
you landed on one such as I
maybe it was just
bad timing

                  I like you -
           I think you're fine
              even quite sweet
             but I'm immune to
     the kind of love you seek
              I don't know why
        you dropped at my feet
   perhaps you should take aim
        the next time you drop
                             p
                             l
                             o
                             p
                  from the sky
