Default Learning To Accept Miracles


When I think of the things you said
And the way that you're in my head
I never felt like I was good enough
I know you don't like to hear those things
But wait for what the next part brings
The best part's coming up

Friends like you are a rarity
With a kindness like a charity
It feels so hard living up
But when I'm circling the drain
You always pull me up again
I promise I'm not giving up

I'll write my millionth verse
About how you get me through the worst
I have to get the words out somehow
I feel better now about myself
Since you pulled me out of my own hell
You make me feel so happy now

You're always reaching out to me
My silence lasts an eternity
But we can say that's just a quirk
You're the girl, goes out, has fun
And I am just the quiet one
I think that dynamic could work

(loud applause, building to an ovation and the audience rises to its feet)

It's not often I find something so perfectly worded as this. Outstanding piece. I will nominate you for best poem of current quarter ...which just began today, I think.
