I used to be your prized possession
always teaching me a lesson.
Always wanting to have me close.
To love me with an open heart you chose.
A smile, laughter; a normal thing.
Sadness would be a clear sin.
They were of the most perfect days.
Though perfection soon decayed.
Now the time has ended fast.
How could I not see happiness wouldn’t last?
I’m like a stranger in my own home.
A sad existence, so alone.
For your attention I must compete,
for once I must admit defeat.
No, I won’t stop till the day I die.
Even my smile, my laughter, is a lie.
I’m dearly sorry I’m not so perfect.
Though no one’s perfect if I’m correct.
The best that we can do is try
to not mess up from time to time.
I’m dearly sorry I’m not even near perfect.
Come to think of it, my apology? You don’t deserve it.
You’ve left me thinking I’m not good enough.
You’ve left me thinking I’m not worth love.
Enough of that, here’s the truth:
I miss you.
