“I’d rather die infamous,
than a nobody.”
you informed me under the covers of last april.
but you’d be my nobody, my fingers sang as they breezed past.
your eyes told me that would never be good enough.

13 was always your favorite number,
and I forever believed it was because it’s unlucky and
gets a lot of attention.
I gave you all the attention I could afford,
but in the end my bank account just wasn’t big
enough to make you smile.

and one night last august, when we were
drunk off our own tears and self pity,
I asked what you wanted more than anything. when your
hazel eyes glazed over, you looked above you, searching
for the right answer.
“the stars look pretty tonight, don’t you think?”

of course you’d ask for the one thing I can’t give you.

all we were was a ‘couldhavebeen’,
full of possibility and promise, all destined to go down the drain because
you couldn’t accept that perfection wasn’t real and I couldn’t believe
that fairytale endings only stay in books.
for you, I tried to have the biggest smile and brightest eyes,
but I couldn’t measure up to supermodelhopes and nightskydreams.

I wish I could write through all
twenty-six letters of the alphabet, and I would if you’d ask, but
it would be rather pointless since my writing was always inadequate anyway.
(and I have to wonder – even if I did,
would you be pleased?)
I'm not sure about this one, but after hours of having it open and trying to edit it, I decided it was the best it could ever be.
~ written march 3rd.

by the way - is this considered prose?
I always thought it was poetry, but others seem to disagree?

very interesting. it perfectly captures the bitterness that only comes from being hurt and disappointed in both yourself and the... hurter.
