Lamentations For A Summer That Never Existed

Lamentations For A Summer That Never Existed

A Poem by Beatrice Mars

I Put on my
Summer Shorts,
And my vest Top
And lamented for a
Summer that never
I danced in front of the
Mirror and pretended
To be a pop star.
I went outside into the snow,
And broke down,
Wondering what was worse,
That you went without
For so long
When it wasn't
On offer,
Or now that it is,
You deny yourself.
When I returned
To the house
My hands were purple,
But that is normal,
So I wasn't worried.
I went back to my
Put on an old skirt
And danced like
I was a ballerina.
But I wasn't very bendy.
So I did a back bend,
Just to see if I could.
I fell down and
Hurt my head.
And I cried as
I remembered
Summers of doing
Back bends on
The hill,
With people I now
Love to hate.
But I'm a better person now.
(I'm skinnier and have better hair.)
I was called down
For dinner and
I quickly changed into
My jeans and T-shirt.
We watched the dancing
On the T.V,
And I got Up and
Waltzed With my cat,
Before crashing in to
The christmas tree.
My Mother yelled at me.
So I went back to
My mirror and remembered waltzing
In a field,
With a real person,
In a summer that
Never happened.
And I remembered
Long starry nights
Around a
With people that don't exist.
I went outside,
Where People know I'm real,
And I danced in
The snow.
Then I remembered who I Am,
And People laughed and told me I can't
So I went
Back to my mirror
And danced like a ballerina.
