"I do not want people to be agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them." ~Jane Austen

I'll take that back, thank you so much
Put it in a steel box, making sure to lock it up
Shake it a couple times, double-check it's nice and tight
I'm leaving all of this behind me tonight
Never turning, not a glance, not a peek
I'm going to be strong, don't you dare call me weak
I'm sorry if I hurt you, please forgive me, if you can
And thanks to all those who gave me a helping hand
But the truth is that I've always been set apart
Being the other causes so much pain, that I've locked up my heart

Frustrated with people's insensitivity. Please comment, this is one my first ventures into the nebulous world of poetry, and I do need feedback. :)
