I liked you better from the outside
Because Now that I’m here
I see you for who you really are
There’s a limit to your love
I want full access.
There’s no way I can keep up with you,
You move too fast for me
I liked you better from the other side
You’re a beautiful mess.
Not only beautiful.
But complicated as Fuck!
Why are you so complicated?
Who made you this way?
Alluring and savage
Passive but dominant
Libidinous and Proper.
I liked you better from the other side.
Where I could do to you what I wanted in my head,
Where I could pretend
You were always the person I wanted to be with.
But here we are.
And I don’t plan on leaving you.
—Originally I named this poem, “Price Tag aka Sonnet 130”. The title “Price Tag” was inspired by the idea of walking by a store and seeing a dress in the window. I tried on the dress, and it was nothing like what it looked like in the window. The idea of being in a relationship, that is nothing like you thought it would be, simply reminds me of that instance. The poem is reflective of a tumultuous, complicated relationship. It comes from the concept of buying something, and being stuck. The poem is not a sonnet, but if you google “Sonnet 130″ by Shakespeare, ” My Mistress’s Eyes are nothing like The Sun,” you’d see that I created my version of stating everything that a person was not and still loving them. Hope you enjoy my poetry, I’ll be posting more soon.—
