Me

Never one to forget a pain,
Never forgotten a face
No matter how remotely
It affected my life.

Never one to say sorry,
But for the most forced of situations
Where cruelty proved to good a blade,
I nod in admittance
At the evil in my soul,
Tried and tested
Whetted and used
Victorious and self defeated
A lover of game and goal.
I nod in admittance
But never say sorry.

Never one to return an embrace
Even if it’s what I wanted
More than anything.
Never one to review affection
Until recently,
Now I never stop questioning.
Is it real?

Never one to forget a pain,
Never one to lose a face
Even if it has no name.
No matter how small the impact
No matter how quick it dried,
I love the people
Who helped make me me,
Said they loved me
Then soon dropped me.
Always thankful to those
Who made me stop
Or made me think
Or made me remember
Though such gratitude came much later.

Never one to admit cruelty
Or affection.
Always to be sullen and lonely
with a humourless affliction,
A robot with no emotion.

Always to be me.
Whoever I am.
Whoever I will be.

Artist's Description

Oh dear, another serious poem.
Fucking ’ell I must be ill.

Who I used to be made me, as it did/does everyone. I am changing so I think it’s prudent right now to remember the past.
