You say that patience is a thing of the past.
Truth is, it’s just a myth.
Sitting around ignoring stuff until you feel brave enough to deal with it isn’t patience.
That’s called procrastination.
They have different meanings.
They have different connotations.
Deal with me.
Speak.
At least come when it’s time.
I’ll be waiting, patiently.

My best friend got in a fight with me one day. She kept telling me she needed time to dissect the argument. When she really was just avoiding me.

I just thought of it. I felt that a girl named Billy would be spunky and tough. I felt that this poem would fit her.

I love this poem so much.  I can really relate to it, cause me and my sister got in a fight a while ago, and... It's making me think about making up with her and stuff.  =]

Buuut I have to ask, where did you get the title from?

I liked it, it seems personal to you and it's like you are writing this to get your anger out, as a way to express your emotions you know? Anyway it's good, I like it!! :)
