A Poem by goldenscar__

Those sad days in December were my Xmas

cause you have been the light to my darkness
and like a dying flower, I fade
I am not as young as I used to be
not as smart as you taught me to be
I am sorry
if I ever fade
in front of your eyes
with not excuse
I am just not that perfect

i don't think anyone can expect to be perfect, but it takes some type of perfection to admit our flaws...
and as we get older we learn just how much we don't really know...as we fade we seem to get wiser.
This is so strong...and titles really matter so much to me...and this one rocks...almost like it is a present to know that we are flawed...and can lower the expectations of ourselves and others, just a slight bit.

it`s hard to say good bye,you get comfortable and content in your life then one day it explodes,
you are in shock,but the feeling of love will return

This reads as a lover's sweet words to a long term partner. It expresses well that feeling of not being good enough of the aging process as we slip from our former selves and feel ourself less than. I felt the deep regret in those final four lines. PS wondered if the penultimate line should have been 'with no excuse' ?

Hi @Ryanna,
first of all, thank you for your review. And yes, blaming is no good; it's much m.. read more
human weakness ... how we do try to avoid it .. so bravo golden! bring it to light and lets talk about it .. your brave and vulnerable protagonist needs those eyes to be kind and true eh!? such a cycle your poem suggests could lead to destruction pretty quick i would guess :( we want to shine for our loved ones .. always ... but we share that human condition of ..."wrong" ;) when my kids were growing up we developed the "I'm Wrong Song" ... which consisted of the title being repeated emphatically many times over ... much to my chagrin, I was the one who instigated the "I'm Wrong Song" and was quickly brought to task to sing it by my 4 children ... but ... it was fun and cleansing in the end ;)) i love the brutal honesty of your poem .. and the vulnerability of your speaker .. very redeeming qualities says i! :)
