I'M You - Poem by chris north

As I watch the slow stream
I start to dream a dangerous dream
In it I'm a younger you
The thought makes me turn a berry blue

I acted out in a weird way
And no one knew what they should say
Everyone looked at me as if I had a hundred heads
As if I were obess and slept on a billion beds

I felt like a monster in a princess's palace
They acted as if I had a Murderer's malace
I could feel my face turning a ruby red
As I turned and fastly fled

I finally stopped for I could barely breath
In front of me was a wretched wreath
I didn't know what was hardly happening
All I could hear was a saw sharpening

I then shed a terrific tear
I started looking around for a bloody beer
I only saw a magnificent mirror
I looked at it and saw you my darling dear

Is this the way you fucking felt
Why were these the cards duly delt
I now understand why your hardly happy
I'm sorry for being so sappy
