Just Wish I Knew. - Poem by Shannon Nicole

Days and days,
That's what keeps me thinking.
Him and her,
That's what keeps me going.
Thought by thought,
That's what keeps me from crying.
One word before the next,
That's what tells a story.

I just want to know what he's thinking about,
I just wish I could help,
But there's a few things in life that just aren't said.
Yea sure we can all fake smiles,
But they're never true til you're good at playing pretend.
A childhood with a gruesome future,
Is what really chooses your path of existence.

It makes me wonder if what he's thinking,
Is it my fault?
I wonder if he'll eventually tell me,
Or will I have to pry?
I don't want to make people tell me,
I was never good at force or being in demand.

I just wish I could know these things,
I hate being unaware and confused.
I hate wanting to cry,
All because I'm always thinking that it's my fault,
Even if you try your best to convince me that it's not.

I just wish I knew,
How to make you smile,
And keep it.
I wish I knew,
How to make you laugh,
Instead of making a fool of myself.

There's somethings that I wish I knew,
But I suppose I'm just going to have to wait.
Too bad I'm not really that patient,
Kind of ironic,
Don't you think?
