That Girl


Did you know that every time you called me ugly I believed it?
Did you know that I gave up a long time ago?
Did you know that I want to be that girl?
I want to be that girl with long hair, and gorgeous eyes
I want to be that girl who gets the guy
I want to be that girl who always looks beautiful

But instead I look like every other girl that you have ever ignored
I have never bothered to look nice because no one ever notices
I never opened because that would mean caring

So what happens to a dream deferred?
I'm not entirely sure
But my dream of not being alone
Of being that girl
Well that dream, is eating me alive

    An almost sad poem. Though I never seen a picture of you, am sure that you are not ugly. Everyone who calls a poet ugly is normally jealous that the poet has more talent than them. You WILL find love and happiness, I know it. You will be MORE than that girl to someone, you will be THE GIRL. Stay strong and don't give up hope (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
