Violet Creek

Rookie (July 31 / United States of America)


My friends say I'm pretty.
I don't.
People say I'm good looking.
I don't.
My boyfriend tells me I'm beautiful.
I don't know what he sees.

I sometimes see boys looking,
But I don't see what they look at.
I sometimes know they flirt,
I don't see why they bother.
I sometimes know they show off,
I'm not worth the time.
I sometimes get numbers,
I'm not worth the hassle.
I sometimes get asked out,
I don't know why they would like me.

    im the same way but im a dude lol. i wouldnt say that you are are excessively hard on yourself. but i bet your the type of person who tries hard not to give anyone a reason to say something bad about you. and from what i can tell through this poem you arent as bad as you think :) . just keep being you and you'll see what they see someday :) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
