Influence

Everyday I strive to please you

Because for some silly reason

I hope you'll take me back

I wish that when you get close

And open your mouth to speak to me

That you'll embrace me instead

And beg me to take you back

But you won't

I know all your favorite bands

And I go home to immerse myself in you

Louder and louder

Because I want to be reminded

Of the time we shared

Even if it was bitter, the taste

You left in my mouth

From everyday

Wondering if I was enough

If I did all the right things

I guess I didn't

Because you still left me alone

Even

When I strove to please you

This poem is about: 
Me
