Bits of Me

I think, maybe, if I took the time to pretend again,
everything would be just fine
and smiling wouldn’t be forced
and he would never have known how sad I am.

There are people who need to be put in their place
and taught a few lessons
on how to treat a girl, how to treat a human being,

but maybe we all need to take some notes.

I wish people would take into consideration
that I have a past too,

and that no matter how much of it I tell to you,
you won't ever know what it's like to be me.

Individualism haunts me in the most agonizing way.
Promises of independence and self-confidence
are never granted, but then again,
who am I to expect things in return
when I haven't even given anything?

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry you only hear apologies from me
when you deserve to be serenaded
and loved.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
