Always Surprised – Written Friday 26th September 2008 (Aged 33)

Always Surprised

i am made up
that you find me interesting
that you should laugh –
at all my silly jokes
and when you look at me in that way
i am choked
i have so much to say
but much of it is stuck in my throat
it is not like –
i lack self belief
but we are all insecure –
especially when you look beneath
so i am always surprised
when you hold onto me
and that you should want –
to spend time with me
after all, in reality, who does get the girl?
i am made up
that you should want to share my world
