I Tire - Poem by Marie Kaiser

Oh life
You wretched thing
If I were capable, with no hesitation
Out the window, you, I'd sling

I've loved and lost
And done so again
Every time left alone
With no one to call true friend

So deep their words penetrate
And I suck them into my soul
Only to let them leave, thus pulling me apart
As no doubt, is their goal

Don't tell me that you care!
Don't look me in the eye
How can you dare-
With such cruel lies, let me cry?

No one seems to see
I hide so successfully
My smile they claim is bright
But I'm tired of being my own light

There is no Romeo for me
And I tire of playing his plight
So perhaps I'll fix my catastrophe
And end our arrangement tonight
