Maybe it's because I can't remember what it feels like to be young
Or the fact that I can no longer make young women fall in love with me.
It could be that I haven't danced in longer than I care to think about
It may be that the red tank top I used to wear doesn't exactly fit the same way it used to.

I know things about myself now.
I've learned things,
forgotten things,
people,
times,
kisses.

I have a serious case of the elevens
and my grey hairs are starting to take over the black.

I had an attitude and
sly, little smirk that could
melt hearts and
break them
just as easily.

I know things about myself now.
I repeat myself.
I don't listen like I used to.
I drink too much,
eat too much,
have sex too little and
breathe
just
a bit more
shallow.

Just a few of the things
I dislike
about knowing who I am.

Just a few reasons to
hate growing older.
i felt like writing. so i wrote.

:hug: you're never afraid to be personal, and expose your own jugular, and I think that, in the time I've known you, that has never changed. You're beautiful.

Ohh, I like this, just the realness and honesty of it. And the fact I could just as easily have written this, only not as well. But, growing older comes with its perks too. ;)
