(My) Geek. You (Freak). This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

geek. Freak.
Oh, those words I throw at you when you
say something stupid
do something stupid
that stupid, brush off the shoulder
just wait til I get older
then I'll be co-ol.
Ice cold.
Ice cold like
my eyes when I say
'help me'
and you say, 'sorry. Busy.'
not even an I AM.
Ten minutes later
'love, come see what I did!'
ice cold eyes.
Ten seconds later it's high fives, yet
good bye!
and I'm right back there in five minutes
You're such a nerd.
'GEEK, GEEK, GEEK'
you complete and utter FREAK.
'You're the nerd.'
Uh uh. No way. Impossible. I say,
words like,
oxymoronic and
hubris
and explain to the hottest guy in school
about how El Camino connected the missions.
I spend forty minutes in the morning
doing my hair
and yet still I'll stare
at the first geek I see.
Geek, boy, freak.
And, you know, there are more than one
almost attracted to people with the
cracked personality,
amazing vocality
can't stand it.
I'm such a freak. Such a geek.
Ice cold eyes:
-at you
stare at the cheerleader(nicest girl in the entire world)
walk away randomly(where the **** are you going?)
sry.busy.(simple text messages, you can't spare a minute, sweet?)
Nope. Not going to be there.(couldn't have told me sooner?clubs,clubs,clubs)
a story unheard(by everyone BUT me)
-at them
you suck(I'm sorry, did I miss part of your conversation)
teacher's pet(it's not my fault, she's brutally honest!)
I'm sorry, you're not part of the fun side(it's health class . . . not a party.)
-at her
curl your hair(it's not fair, the boys still stare)
low cut dresses(can you see yourself?)
smoking pot(now, ok, really, must I hear about this?)
loud whispers,'I HATE HIM'(except you dated him. . . yesterday)
NERD! GEEK! FREAK!
I'm a nerd,
a freak
a wanted piece of society
flaunt every crack at propriety
ice cold.
Ice cool.
You geek.
We're such freaks.
Yet I long for more words of
'I was going to take you there.'
'it's kind of annoying when she stares.'
'I wanted you to follow me.'
'I wish . . .'
how many boys does this make now?
Oh, geez, I can just see
a whole group running after me.
I do not care
even if they don't exist
only in my world of bliss,
but that would contain only you.
Listen to me
I'm just a freak,
just a geek
completely and utterly unique;
just like everyone else.

not quite sure the story it's supposed to tell but that adds to its appeal :) i like the way you write like you're talking to someone and criticizing (yourself?) at the same time
