It was you who fell first

WordJar asked for a dedication to accompany the poems in their anthology My Love 2. I suppose this would normally be to the object of affection in the poem, but my poem is about a young woman who is letting go of an unobtainable man and the object of affection, in the end, is herself. So, instead, I dedicate the poem to my friend Gill. When I asked Gill what she thought of the emotional state of the woman in the poem (because I like to annoy my friends with such questions), Gill shrugged and said, She's just being a woman. We both nodded wisely.
