Logorythmic Sequence
Written by Natalie Wong
Titled by Perry Hamilton

I liked the way you held my hand,
     I liked it quite a lot.
There were reasons I fell in love with you,
     But those reasons I forgot.
I hate the way you smile at me
     And that I smile too.
I hate the fact that I'm in love
     And there's nothing I can do.
I hate that you've always cared,
     And held me when I've cried.
I hate that you make me laugh
     And are always by my side.
I hate that my heart skips a beat
     When ever you walk by,
But all this hate I've proclaimed to you
      Has been nothing but a lie.
I love the way you smile and look at me,
      And the need to smile back.
I love the feeling in my heart
      And that's a solid fact.
I love thar you've always cared,
       And held me when I cried.
I love that you make me laugh;
       I want you always at side.
I love when my heart skips a beat,
       And in your arms I belong.
So believe me when I tell you:
      "I've loved you all along."
I am not everything,
  But I am something.
Tell me no,
  And I'll pretend you said yes.
I am a person,
  And I have feelings too.
I am free,
  But still trapped in this thing we called life.
I am loud,
  Like a thunderstorm on a summer's day.
I am a singer,
  And I sing nothing but the truth.
I am a writer,
  My life is just words on a page.
I am strong,
  Both emotionally and physically.
I am broken,
  But in no need of repair.
I am a child,
  Still constantly reaching out for my mommy's hand.
I am a Seattleite
  The rain brings me joy.
I am a video game character,
  Challenges always stand in my way.
I am a mathlete,
  My mind is all numbers.
I am a nerd,
  And I fight to be heard.
I am a perfectionist,
  I always strive to be better.
I am misunderstood,
  And terrified of what is ahead.
I am confused and unsure,
  But always try to hide it.
I may not be the person you want me to be,
  But that's because it's not your life I'm living.
I am not popular,
  I am not fake.
I am not like everyone else,
  No, I am ME.
