I Tried

by Roger Unrequited

I tried to wear shorts with Doc Martens
I tried to wear black
I tried to like Lyle Lovett
  and bought all his CDs
and I tried to wear black
I tried to read David Eggers
I tried to like your other friends.
  They seemed like nice guys.
I tried to wear black
I tried to understand why you said no one got
  what Sinead O'Connor was trying to say,
  though you said you did
and I tried to wear black, again
I tried to learn how to play a guitar
I tried not to call too much
and I tried to grow that goatee,
  but then you said, ''Oh, it's just not you''
I tried to like your ratatouille
I tried to understand about the no-touching thing
I tried to read David Eggers one more time
I tried to wear black
