I walk through the hall,
arms crossed, stand tall
no time to stall

And there you are, blocking the doorway
You grab my hips
you try to get your way
But I see through your eyes

Your truths are irrelevant
You spit your sorries, close your eyes
but boy I see right past those tries

You make me ache
well being at stake
You try to get a feeling of who I am?
But who are you kidding..
you just want me to make you feel like a man
You try, Oh you try to get your hand on my thigh
But boy look at me, look into my eyes

These are the words that I should have said
ayy you need to get out of my head
cuz i have ambitions visions and goals
I am a rock going down a solid road
so dont give me that look
I dont want to hear can I borrow a buck ?
Dont like your lips and look at me
Dont bite your cheek and call me baby
Because I am a girl with priorities

And out of the words that I said..
i should have said more of these

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem for a class assignment..nd read it at a couple poetry readings at my school. The assignment was to write something that You wish you had said, but didnt. Although I dont think its my best piece, it has a lot of emotion in it, and it showed me that I really could let out how I felt through writing.

I really like it. I too use writing to vent my feelings [honestly it is one of my only two possible venting choices] I love the poem. I wish I would have said all of those things and more...a lot more...great poem
