Random Poem:

I'm the child.

Once again,
I'm left with a loss for words,
while you've got a loss for me.
The words "I hate you"
fall from your mouth,
as my breathing
continues to slow.
Breathless yet again.
You can sweet talk your way
out of anything and you talk
as if you've experienced everything
in the world that there is to go through.
So when I stumbled upon something
that phased me, you acted as if i
was only a child.
   [[You said age NEVER mattered.]]
You don't bother to help me along
the way, you only ridicule me.
[[You acted better then that.
                ...I thought you were.]]
but once again,
I'm the fool.
I'm the child.
