Every Smile

by Run out of words   Dec 22, 2007

If I could just go...
to three months back.
I'd change all that makes me who I am...
I'd put my life in track.

I'd maybe leave, that boy I loved.
And come to you anyway.
But I wouldn't have let you think you could,
ever treat me in this way.

I wouldn't have started,
doing all the things I've done.
I know it's all so wrong.
I hate the girl who I've become,
the old me seems so gone.

I'd turn back time,
and burn these days.
They don't deserve to be.
You've hurt me baby in so many ways,
It's like poison when I breathe.

Maybe those people,
wouldn't have left me so.
Maybe they'd like the real me,
but now I'll never know.

Maybe my life,
wouldn't be so messed.
Maybe I'd be a good girl,
and wouldn't always be so stressed.

Because every night,
after dark.
I seem to pick the phone,
and threaten to make a mark.
I call all those who I think care about me...
When it should be you...
But you're the only one who just can't see.

You can't see...
How I'm bleeding inside.
And you can't see...
How I've suddenly died.

Because after these three months,
this girl can't smile no more.
And the truth is baby,
they were all fake,
every smile she bore.

    I've been reading lots of poetry today and each new one I read takes me back to my younger years...my teens. Wow...I have no idea if this is real or not but just let me say you mustnt let those silly boys do that to you. I can honestly say the biggest mistake of my life is allowing a man to control me...not in a physical manner...but he knew I loved him so much that I would give up anything and everything for him. He changed me...he changed friendships and I hate to think of it now. I think a lot of young girls experience this...I did until I was 21--- then I realized that there are probably hundreds of beautiful things and people I missed out on becuase of him. I love the way you described your feelings on the situation. I know that's it real whether you experienced it or not you know the feeling. Nicely done!!! Sorry, I didn't mean to ramble I'm just a bit shaken up with all this fantastic stuff I've been reading....lol
