Why Everything I Did Was Wrong! ! - Poem by Maneshree Govender

As i got dressed you stared at me.
When i looked into my mirror it was your face I could see.
as I put on my make-up I knew this was the prettiest I could be.
I loved my new party dress,
As I fixed my hair I was no longer a mess,
We arrived at the party, your friends happy to see me.
The way they looked at me with such admiration
the way you looked at me with such fustration.
I could never understand.
You told me my clothes were bad, that made me sad.
At the party you left me alone, your emotions that of a stone.
All i did was wrong! ! ! !
Wrong Wrong Wrong! !
Even as I asked you to dance with me as they played our favourite song.
You asked me not to talk so loud, not to stand among any crowd,
As we left the party I looked at you,
I was like the girl you decribed at the party,
Why are you the only to find faults with me,
I was perfect as far as everyone could see,
maybe it you who has a flaw,
maybe it you who needs to change.
I know its true,
even though it sounds strange.
maybe its not me but Its you who is wrong with everything you do!
