No I’m not, but I was in that situation before so when someone gave me the idea of writing a poem about transparency, that is what I came up with.
Someone who can make me laugh.
Someone who understands that I don’t always want to be talking
and actually enjoy just listening every once in a while.
Someone who doesn’t always agree with me
but knows how to have a civil argument as well.
Someone that can get philosophical with me.
Someone that will sit and enjoy a cup of tea with me while talking about world problems
or curled up on the couch watching some random movie neither of us have heard of.
Someone who can actually enjoy doing nothing sometimes.
Someone that can get along with most animals.
Someone not afraid to try something new.
Someone that love to make spontaneous plans
but also actually likes knowing what they are doing most times.
Someone that sees more than just what is put in front of them.
Someone who is comfortable with who they are.
Someone that likes to be chivalrous.
Someone who isn’t offended when I want to pay sometimes.
Someone that accepts the extent of my nerdiness
but also loves my need to play sports and socialize.
Someone that will always be wanting to protect me
and understands why I worry.
Someone that just has moments of being a complete idiot
because acting their age was overbearing for that long.
Someone who doesn’t like doing things the expected way.
Someone who loves tattoos as much as me.
Someone who doesn’t understand the need for labels.
Someone that wants to travel to the ends of the world.
Someone that wants a family someday
but not like tomorrow.
Someone at my pace.
Someone to compliment me.
Someone to love.
in a month and a half
so close but so far
school shall start again
to start the fourth year
will be quite a scare
so much to be expected
the year to be strong
so I’m not stuck here forever
to stick to my major
no changing my mind
because I’ve got to have it right
at least this time
The little girl runs into the bathroom
her parents fighting again
she cant tell what they are saying
but there is screaming and shouting
she climbs in the tub
and curls into a ball
as they continue yelling
causing her to cry
until she hears a door slamming
from her dad saying goodbye
he’d be back in a few hours
or maybe not until tomorrow
but she can’t stand the suspense
as she watches her mom fall to pieces
waiting by the door for him to return
it’s the same old story
in the little girl’s world
She’s a teenage heartbreak
as she walks down the hall
to meet the boyfriend she has
that she knows won’t last long
since he has these little habits
that drive her insane
she’ll break up with him in a few days
because she isn’t ready for this
making up excuses as to why
she doesn’t want to date him anymore
as she feels bad for letting go
and telling him it is little things
that she has noticed this whole time
from the sloppy way he kisses
to the lack of social situations
that they actually go into to
though she is lying to his face
because she can’t stand to say
that she’s afraid of committing
and being like her parents
who never seem to get along now
and don’t seem to be in love
