I was born. It was born. So it began. It continues. It will outlive me. People whisper, stare, giggle. Their eternal privilege. My eternal curse-Joyce Carol Oates


I hope you can forgive me,
But I'm not a romantic,
You aren't why I wake up everyday,
But you certainly make the day worth living,
Of course you're not the first thing that goes through my mind
I probably just want breakfast,
But you might be my second,
I know I can't woo you with a pretty song,
But making you laugh makes me happy,
You probably ain't crazy for me, I'm not the best looking guy,
But you like me for my imperfections,
That's pretty cool,
I just wanted to apologize,
I'm not really a romantic

What's to say? The wonder of this poem is its simplicity.

How cute:) I loved it. It's not sappy like other poems that talk about liking someone, therefore it is unique. Could you comment on some of my work?
