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

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
