I Know and I'm Sorry

I'm sorry I did not stand up for you
I once was bullied to
I know what it's like to dread coming to school each day
I know how hard it is to ignore what people say
I said I'd never stoop to there level ever
Yet I watch and laugh as your confidence is severed
I can see why you might want to even the score
I can't stand to watch this fight yet I hover by the door
I hear a crack which people say it's your nose but it's your heart
The punches keep coming at the speed of a dart
Your eyes meet mine and they beg help me out
All the ideas I have leave me in doubt
Instead of helping to pick you up off the floor
I turn and walk out the door
Only then do I let the tears stream down my face
I hope I never again have to see this place
When I was considered uncool
You were the only one who hung out with me at school
You were my friend for a long while
You gave my face a smile
Then I ditched you for they considered you a geek
Popularity I did seek
We took a pact to never become fake
But that road I did take
Only now will I not be able to sleep
I'll ponder my decisions and wish our friendship I did keep
I didn't stand up for you and I'm sorry I did not
But popularity is now all that I've got
I distanced myself from everybody and I left you alone
But into a different person I've grown
It is now my only task
To wear a mask
I no longer really feel
I am not considered real
I became what everyone wanted to see
And that person is way different than the original me

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
