So.... you want a poem about me?


Life's just a matter of going through the motions

 

and ignoring the emotions

until one day that pain becomes too much to bear

but it's not like people care

you gasp for air

and people stare

while words ensnare

you

they remain unaware

---------------------------------------------------------------

You don't see it do you?

The pain in her eyes

the lies

forever etched onto her heart

she's falling apart

little by little

Becoming more and more brittle

with each and every word

she's hanging on by a strand

trying to understand

why words hurt so much

she reaches for the clutch

trying to take control of her life

she grabs a knife

to end her life

because her mind keeps

telling her things

like she's better off

dead

-----------------------------------------------------------------

So you want a poem about me?

well ya see

that's going to be

difficult

because what I see is the reciprocal

of what typical

people see

I'm not who people make me to be

I'm not smart, I'm not a nerd

I can hardly keep my grades up

people look at me with glee

but all I see

is disappointment

there's no enjoyment

in that

but how did I get where i'm at?

I've been used like a doormat

for years

used, abused, labeled

then tossed aside

subsided

to less than human

words are consuming

me

I'm not who you want me to be

but I don't know who me

is

because the me I knew

was drowned by the words

so I can't write you a poem

about a person I

don't even know

I'm sorry to let you down

but there's no need to frown

that clown will just let you down

anyways

----------------------------------------------------------

th..... thump

her heart beat is falling behind

A**h***

taking a piece of ME

with them

and leaving behind

Disappointment

Bump.........................................................Bum

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Words hurt

weather it's one or a million 

words hurt

they all cause pain

but that's just harsh, harsh reality

and ya, know maybe their right

Because somethings we can't escape

but in the meantime i'll just wear my cape

and imitate a person i'm not

until the day I break

into a million peices

and wind up in a casket

and become another one

lost to the words

they say imitation is suicide

but is imitation suicide

or are the words people

say that lead you to imitation

suicide?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your words can lead people to a casket

is it too much to ask

that

you don't say those words?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Your tongue can be

the difference between

LIFE and DEATH

what will YOU choose?
