Poetry

I love making fun of my life

I love making fun of my life

It makes it seem less miserable

If people laugh at my sorrows

That means it’s not really sad

Right?

I love teasing myself in front of others

It makes them feel better about themselves

I joke about my dating life, sex life, general life

It makes it seem better

I love telling people stories

I exaggerate

Pause for drama

And cue signals for each new reaction

I feel like a movie director

I love hating myself

It’s a habit I’ll really truly get over

For who will feel sorry for me

If I don’t tell them how miserable I am

How little self esteem I carry

And how much I need their kind words

I love writing poems

It helps me find my inner voice and true pain

I dig it out and analyze it

It’s so big

So shiny

Then I put it back inside before anybody notices

I love life

I just wish I could

Love me as much
