Why Didn'T You? - Poem by Tazia Daley

what i can't expose
is everything
not my body
nor my soul
my skin
too flawed
my mind
too old
it's a trivial story
retold
through my eyes
stay still
trying not to get
dizzy
my mind is too
busy
so my heart goes blind
and i use my brain
for every decision
ignoring the pureness
of my heart's
true vision
til i'm another
lost cause
sitting in the shade
wishing you had kissed me
before you flew away
