• look at me, see what you've done
    this hurt long ago begun.
    long ago i was once a happy girl who'd dance
    just for the sake of doing so.
    please, that you'd know
    and realize
    the lies
    said and done to me.
    that you never answered a plea.
    the very sun is a reminder of
    the fun times others love.
    yes, the others
    that smother
    and ignore
    a perfect irony
    and allegor-
    but the sight (of whom) i despise
    can turn one almost wise
    that now i've learned what is true--
    i should have long ago forgiven you.
