If in the event this is successful,
And I'm able to (and I quote) –

“plug my wounds with words''

Then let me stamp every bitter thought
that comes to my mind, on this page
On these bandages.
I can only hope that I'm not
doubted by my uncertainties
as I stop to wonder
what it is exactly
that I have just written.
No one will be able to relate to this,
And my scars will struggle
To remember how this happened.
Only you will be able to
Understand what this means,
But not until you begin peering,
through my wounds, of course.
Once you begin; trying to mend
My heart's broken pieces
Countless, fragile, broken pieces
And stepping over my broken bones
To scrape up the few good ones,
And rearranging my dead body
To piece my limbs back together,
You will eventually give up,
and come to rest at any rotten
or decomposed organ of your choosing.
Only then will you recognize it all
And then you will say, “I did that”
Yep, that was me,
I did that.


The author's comments:
I decided to try something new called "posting the meaning of your poetry so people will know what its about". this is about someone who...oh forget it. its dedicated to (and I quote) "TIMEVAMPIRE". but i might write something better and dedicate that to him also. give me a minute......

Well, maybe I do, and maybe I don't, and maybe I thought I did, but then you started aggravating me, and so I started questioning whether I really enjoyed aggravating you, if the alternative was to be aggravated myself...

well the white thing isnt yours so quite worrying. your paticularness explains this barrier between us. because often i read your responses to my questions or thoughts and i'm like "really? where did that just come from". just like now. oh, and reread me captain.

Hm....well, it's not all of a sudden, I've always been a particular person, you can just ask my classmates, and they'll tell you, if I am given a job, I get it done, but not just enough to get away with it, but I go all the way, so that it's perfect.  If I'm getting on your particular side, I'm sorry, but some things you just can't help...

do you really want to get particular with me captain, because you're not very paticular to say you all of a sudden want to be particular. are you trying to get on my particular side?
