Find To Fit

by C Cattaway   Oct 16, 2017

Will I ever know what it is that's so wrong?
Without being told, how can I carry on?
If I'm always hoping that someone will come,
Then how will it work if I'm never much fun?

Am I too ugly? Or am I too shy?
Is it because I can't stop talking? Or why
Can't someone tell me what is wrong with me?
I shouldn't have to find out with a plea?

Am I too desperate? I only want
To show my affection. It's what I was taught
To be a good girlfriend. But even a wife
Was something I failed at. Failed at it twice!

Why am I trusting? Why do I have hope
When no one can tell me why each blooming bloke
Can't find it within them to love me, or care
That I would move heaven and earth, to fit there!

    A sad theme with your piece Miss Cattaway.

    If love was easy, there would be no poetry :)
    We don't fail in relationships, we experience and work out whether we suit one another. But maybe this may never happen, which isn't failure its just not finding our compatible partner.
    a heart-felt poem
    Much love and warmth

    I think it's too easy to blame yourself for the failure of relationships but the truth is if you were right for each other it would have worked. It's the old adage you have to kiss a few frogs before you find your Prince. A thought provoking piece. Milly x
