    Confessions

    Small doses of joy
    Just aren't enough anymore
    Don't tease me
    I want it all

    And if you can't provide me with that
    If your endless supply runs dry once it's my turn
    Then get out

    Because in the society of lies
    I'm no one

    You're right that I've changed
    I think for the better
    And if it was up to me
    I'd remain like this forever

    Just me and my sorrow
    That's how I like it

    But tell me the words
    And I swear I'll fight it

    If you want me back
    I'll be forever grateful
    If you take me back
    Well than this is shameful



    This one is all over the place. But I think it's clear what each line is saying..even if they all don't really fit together.

    Hmm... Yay more poems from you! :) I thought at first that it might be you thinking society doesn't give you anything but small doses of happiness, but if society offered to take you back you'd gladly accept the offer - basically, you'd take being happy over having sorrow and your current perspective even if having to be in this society full of lies is required. Then again, I might be grasping at straws, as you think it's all over the place.

    Just a reader's guess/interpretation.. Thanks for sharing....Alex

    It's hard for me to sum this one up overall. I'll try and go little by little.

    Small doses of joy
    Just aren't enough anymore
    Don't tease me
    I want it all

    Me saying that some days are great and others suck and I'm tired of life being like a roller coaster. If "life" wants me to be happy, then make everything good. Pretty much.

    And if you can't provide me with that
    If your endless supply runs dry once it's my turn
    Then get out

    Just me whining. The 'endless supply [of joy] runs dry once it's my turn' is pretty much me saying that everyone else is happy except me.

    Because in the society of lies
    I'm no one

    Me saying I just don't feel like I fit in..

    You're right that I've changed
    I think for the better
    And if it was up to me
    I'd remain like this forever

    Me trying to convince myself that I like what I've become..

    Just me and my sorrow
    That's how I like it

    Same as above..

    But tell me the words
    And I swear I'll fight it

    Then it's me saying that I like what I've become but give me a fair chance and I'll change and be one of the "happy people."

    If you want me back
    I'll be forever grateful
    If you take me back
    Well than this is shameful

    Me saying that I kind of want to be like that. The last line, 'well than this is shameful' is kind of me acknowledging my depression. I hope that one day I can look back and 'laugh' about all I'm going through now..


    That actually felt really good for me to write... I might do that again more. It makes my own poems even clearer me to.

    Yeah, your summary of each part was really easy to understand! It makes more sense now. =)
