Never Quite Right

I have always wanted to write poetry

but I could never get the lines quite right

The tone was always off

and the lines too short.

There was always something awkward in the writing

and the words always came out unclear

like the actions I would portray.

It was always like me to run

When there was something I couldn’t understand.

Like that boy in the street that one day

that asked me to stay

As I ran off to the first unsafe place i could find.

I was always awkward like that.

I could never get the lines right.

Always set at the same tempo

even when the words were different.

Maybe someday Ill get it right

but for now I’ll hide behind the logic

that the world says is right

as I tuck my innocence right back in

where the words swirl in a pattern only I can accept.

I never could quite get the lines right.
