A Poem by Neythan Cardoso

For all of you who have ever felt that things were a one way street.


The days when things were wild and hot


When you always wanted me no matter the time


I would go insane if I didn’t make out with you


It was like we were both drugs and we loved the way it went together


You’d let me know how bad you wanted me and how sexy I was


But now I don’t even know if I’m wanted anymore.



The hot fiery times have become this….



There is no more open opportunity


There is no more of course at this time


Now its I must do in order to receive


There must be a mood in order to connect


There must be no planning and just let it happen


And now the just let it happen has become a used to.



I still want you more and more to this day but now it’s become only one way


I try and try again and it’s become this one-way street


I’m not sure how much farther I should tread


I could just stroke your face and give you a look


And the face I got back was I had just got a hook


And I would open and read you like book


But now when I do it its just like I’m a f*****g sex crook….



Now what am I supposed to do?


Is there something I have done?


Am I no longer sexy?


Am I no longer handsome?


Is there another man charming you?


If you were in my shoes what would you do?


Hours used to go by and we’d go insane if we haven’t kissed


And now it goes weeks and nothing is even missed.


I used to stay up all night thinking about how crazy I am about this girl


But all it is now is how am I supposed to set things back on fire?


And now I’ve realized I cant blow away my problems in smoke


The true source of my relief is you


Everything about you, you’re the complete puzzle


But our lips don’t talk so our feelings don’t mix


Its just water and cool aid and its never stirred


And now my voice is never heard


Now I write my pains and my sorrows for all of you to see


That this beautiful young boy isn’t all fine and dandy


Inside there is a war raging on and he doesn’t know how to win


So again and again like the day after tomorrow I try again


And I get farther and farther


but just do me a favor.


Set us back on fire.

Thank you so much I'm glad it did!
This was good! It was easy for me to relate to your piece. I know how difficult it is to switch it up. Sometimes it's hard for me to write an email to a friend or even one of these comments with out using rhymes.

I love the way it came out and I'm more into dabbing into other ways of writing!
If her heart still belongs to you I'm sure if you showed her this you'd start making out on the spot haha. good luck

From the Boston area, I've always felt like I was never understood for how I felt about something. No matter how complicated or how simple it was. I tell the stories of my life on paper and I want.. more..
