"To err is human."


Eyes awake, heart and mind asleep.
I have to fake it, just to get through the week.
I can’t go on, I can’t be me.
I don’t even know what I’m supposed to be.
When you lie for a while, you forget who you are.
You start to leave home and go to the bar.
The more drinks I have, the less of the pain.
My life was a watercolor, now smothered by rain.

This has to do with me. Once you lie to yourself for three years, you forget who you really are.

thanks! your dance one was better though. Because dance is something more tangible and more idealistically emotional than a watercolor. (: Keep it up! I'm disappointed you only have one poem! More! Mas! ha that was spanish.

I loove the metaphor; comparing your life to a watercolor...a really beautiful poem!
