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 William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
