Understand Me - Poem by ezzabell fanning


bottled up inside
are the words i never said
the feelings that i hide
the lines you never read

you can see it in my eyes
read it on my face
trapped inside are lies
of the past i can't replace

with memories that linger
won't seem to go away
why can't i be happier?
today's a brand new day

yesterdays are over
although the hurting's not
nothing lasts forever
i must cherish what i've got

the hurt i'm feeling now
won't disappear overnight
but someway, somehow
everything will turn out all right

    Congrats! You've managed to use simple words to convey such a deep and profound meaning through! Nice alternative rhyming as well! However, I did notice that 'linger' does not really rhyme with 'happier'... Still, great job =) (Report) Reply
