I Never Bothered

You've been broken for a while now,

You've never been properly fixed.

Your wounds too gaping for even time,

Your mind a hapless mix.

Yet I've still kept you together,

With bad sewing and sloppy glue.

Every time I break you against that wall,

The stitching gets harder to do.

I never bothered to put, though,

Your only uncracked part back in.

I never saw the reason in it,

You looked better without the grin.

After all, what was the point,

You never smile at me anymore.

Why should I waste time carving

Another mouth for that face of yours?

I never bothered to put back, though,

In your chest your most fragile part

I never saw the reason in it

You were better off without your heart.

After all, what was the point,

You don't love me or anyone anymore.

Why should I waste my time putting back together

The shards of that heart of yours?

My eyes flicker over to the porcelain shards

In the pile by the wall

And now I know why I do

Every time I break you against that wall,

The pain of love numbs me too...


AN: I'm starting to wonder if I have multiple personalities. I don't remember writing this poem, or being so good (at least, I thought the poem was). Most of my writing is complete crap...

Wait...oh yeah, I wrote this at three in the morning! It was a Monday and I couldn't sleep and I was dreading school, so I stole my laptop back from my parents' room (all with ninja silence), hooked it up, and began typing.

And then I stuck this in a folder where it lay, forgotten, gathering dust for months...

Please review! CC is appreciated! Flames will be used to burn my math homework!
