rains of bloom


Touch of pain


Why do you touch me?
you pull my hair when i'm not looking
and touch my back when i don't see
why is it that you touch me?

Your the moths by the windowsill
peering in to see the lights
but i don't understand
because i don't have lights.

I thought i was independent
and then discovered i was anything but
i am demure and quiet, and let everyone push me by
you'd never call me shy, but i could be a giver.

No one cares about me
except when they think they do
but no one ever truly cares
not about anyone.

They say a pretty face doesn't matter
its a stupid lie they want to believe
they want to believe the world is good
but truth is, it is harsh.

I wanted to be a writer
so they had to crush my dreams
because ambition and hope
can't compeat with shallow lives.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
