Remember December

I still remember that December 
All fresh in my mind
Too blind to see the signs
As the days would fly by

You made me feel special
For once in my life
Wasn't looking for anyone, no
I was way too shy
You came along and made me feel
Things I never knew
I'd take back the memories
But then it'd take the good ones too

Cause I still remember that December
When everything went down
And inside all I, 
Wore was a permanent frown
That old me couldn't be found

I wasn't that pretty
Could hardly call me cute
I used to get teased, yeah
And those words would take root
But you got me back on my feet
And said they weren't true
Ain't it funny when I fell again
The person who pushed was you

Cause I still remember that December
When everyything went down
And inside all I, wore was a permanent frown
That old me couldn't be found

I was broken, lost, and confused
Felt so utterly used
And if you opened me up you'd just see a bruise
Cause together I thought we'd never lose
With you I was so alive
During those days all I'd do was cry
And soon I realized I wouldn't die
Wondering to myself why

Cause I still remember that December
How long it took
To let go of that anger
And every day
I just got stronger
But I still remember that December
I still remember that December
Remember that December

    Oooh Caleah... I believe this is one of your best pieces! The repetitions really added strength to the piece and made me curious as to the extent of what happened in that December. It's tough when someone makes you feel special only to end up pushing you back down with all the other teasers and bullies. I really liked the way you expressed yourself in this. Especially the last three lines... indicating just how much it never truly left your mind.

    Thank you Timothy! From you that is a HUGEEE compliment! :D Let's just say during that December there was a lot of chocolate and ice cream involved, lol! Yeah, it's always hard to be lead on...only to be left all alone again. Bad memories, but I have a feeling this will be a promising year. ;) Thanks so much again! :D

    Sorry you went through this. Life can be cruel, I don't know what you are saying though you are very pretty not just cute. Your personality comes out in your words so I think you have nothing to worry about the right young man will show up when the time is right. First be happy within yourself and discover the magic that is you. Hugs Rick

    I'm over it now but I have these moments when it hits me full force. You're so sweet!!! I was never really ever called pretty when I was younger. I've learned a lot from those days, though. I SO appreciate your comment. :) *Hugs back!*

    Aww, I don't want to give you bad memories! Bruises heal at least... and I hope your happier now. :) This happened about a year and a few months ago, but I'll always remember it. Definitely a dark time for me and I wanted to put it down in words how I felt. Thanks so much for commenting, I admire your writing. :D
