For so long I longed for you
And now I know not why
And I changed myself around for you
Hoping you'd love me if I tried

One day I saw you walking alone
With the word "Nirvana" scrawled on your shirt
So I went home and bought the Cd
I thought that it couldn't hurt

Next you were all about
Torn clothes and dirty hair
So became your living shadow
For what did I even care

I heard that you were in a band
But I could not sing a note
So I picked up pen and paper
And poetry I wrote

So I went to all the parties
And the people I met were alright
I started to like what I had become
And of you I sort of lost sight

Now you date the cheerleaders
For loud dirty hair you abhor
And I like you a little I suppose
But I like myself a little more

Hope I can get a response to this

Rox,

I really liked this poem...the most important thing in life is to learn to love yourself for who you are...not what people want you to be.

Bravo to you...for this poem and for learning to like yourself even more!

The last two lines were priceless ... I enjoyed the read.

Thank you all for the comments... I just felt that I was indebted to this fake loser who introduced me to the things that I know enjoy....like writing on here.
