"Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You." -Dr. Seuss :D


I try to keep my eyes from wandering back to
Your beautiful face
The face that once adored me
The face that was once my anchor
To the world
I know that there's no turning back
I know that I can't get you to forgive
My mistake
I can only tell you that I did what I had to
To survive
I did what I had to
To be happy
But I've lost the happiness that I
Might have gained because
I lost your love
I lost your affection
I lost you
I am nothing more than a stranger on the streets to you
You will never hold me again
And I can't blame you
Who would want to touch
What I've become?
Who would want to hear
My voice proclaiming
My undying love?
Who want want to accept the feelings of a naive girl like me?
I've betrayed you and
Myself


The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by a book I read for an independent project in English class. I hope that other teenage girls will be able to relate to having to make a choice between the punches life throws at you and relationships.
