"Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much."
"Karen: If you're from Africa why are you white? Gretchen: Omg Karen, you can't just ask people why they're white."

My windowsill is great for me
To sit and watch the birds and trees
I think of how they sing their songs,
The beauty that the leaves give off

The music they bring me reminds me of you
When I try to forget –it fills up my mind;
You make it so hard to forget
All of our problems, all my regret…

Now, I sit here all alone
Wishing I could go back to that night
On the porch knowing what I had done
Having this deep, deep in my heart

I’ll never do it again, never!
I swear that I love you, I do!
I did it. I admit it. I am not proud.
I tried to apologize, but you wouldn’t let me

Now, I sit here all alone
Wishing you would come find me
Sitting in my windowsill
Watching the birds and the trees.

In order to enter one of my poems into a contest I had to shorten it ALOT. Here's the revised version. It won top ten :)
