A Strange Environment.

Poetry By: Ohioguy
Poetry



This is actually something that I wrote the moment I woke up today. I guess it was sort of stuck in my head and I just barely managed to get it out. It reflects on something personal, to me. But in general I guess it speaks about how simple things can turn into really complicated things so easily. All it takes is a few words..

This is an odd environment.

I guess normalcy,

was never a requirement -

for me. But now I can't see!

I can't tell which way is down,

and I'm afraid that I'll sink -

straight to the bottom!

And to think,

it could've worked out so differently.

What if I told you,

that I don't care -

as much as I used to?

What would you do?

We met in this strange environment.

But normalcy was never a requirement,

for us. And now I can see!

Now I can see what you think of me.

We talked for hours on end,

I thought we were going to make such great friends.

That is until you started talking 'bout your boyfriend.

You kept telling me all of his faults.

and started taking care in all of our talks,

to always mention how much better I was.

I guess you thought there was more there than,

there should have been!

We've never been the same, since then.

Let me tell you,

I have no desire to get between you and someone else.

I'm perfectly fine sticking by myself.

The only difference between a friendship,

and a dating relationship?

Is sex.

And a bunch of meaningless words,

that are almost never spoken out-loud.

And that's something I couldn't care less about!

Your ignorance makes me want to shout!

Why'd you have to turn this into,

something that it's not?

Are you beautiful? Of course.

Would I do it? You wouldn't have to force it.

But that doesn't mean I will.

Not under these circumstances.

Learn a little patience,

We'll just see what happens.
