I Never Cry
I Never Cry
It rips my stomach into seventy small pieces whenever you talk about the guy you just met, or your exboyfriends, or some prospective new boyfriends. But most of all, I hate when you talk about how we're best friends. I have enough best friends, why don't you love me?
Wait, I know, is it because I'm bald?
Maybe I stink.
Too dumb, too smart?
Maybe I swear too much.
Maybe I don't act my age, maybe I do.
I think I'm just too friendly. I never cry, but you know, whenever you talk about how good of friends we are, and how you don't know what you'd do without me, I want to.
You like my best friend. He's good looking, smart, funny. Hell, he's an awesome guy, I know. I love him like a fucking brother. But why can't you love me?
I hate sounding like the friend that always whines about something, seems like they never get anything their way. I love me. I don't have any plans to change me. I make me laugh. I bet I could sell my personality on ebay. I'm a tall, handsome guy, I
Destiny Gets the Best of MeDestiny Gets the Best of Me12 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My feet have carried me to many places,
My eyes watch all the passing faces,
Still my heart looks for a girl,
With compassion and grace,
For my arms to embrace,
Sadly enough, she continues to remain
So out of touch with my feelings, my perception becomes
I know she is out there,
Only in time, will I know where,
Believing in destiny,
Seems to get the best of me.

You said you'd be here, but you've said that before,
Only to leave me standing here, foolishly holding
My heart in my hands, broken and silent.
You ask. I give. You beg. I give. You insist
That I stand still, not moving to the left or right,
While you roam freely and openly, leaving me
To follow you, and close my heart once more.
If I could say to you what's on my mind, I'd tell you I love you.
I'd tell you I want you. I'd tell you of the hurt and anger that
Simmer under my skin, but I keep silent because I know the cost.
I know that no matter what is said or done, I am wrong, as always.
I wish I could climb a tree, to the very top until there
Was nothing but sky between me and the stars.
I'd stretch out my hands to touch them, feel their energy
Thrilling through me. But I can't even get to the top of the tree.
I stay behind, head down, because I love y

Like a thick fog where sight doesn't reach an extended arm's fingertips
My feelings struggle to reach my lips
As I continue to be swallowed up by what I fail to explain
Peace of mind only becomes all the more impossible to sustain
Knocked back and forth I have lost my sense of direction
And now, everything I once believed in I hold in question
The uncertainty leaves me feeling so incomplete
Like finding love that you do not get to keep
I feel myself beginning to crack; I just hope that when I finally fall apart
Someone will be there to catch my heart
