That's What You Get.

That's What You Get.

A Poem by Naomi

Towards everyone who pisses me off.

You say you're so sick of being around me,
and then you usually just complain and complain.
That's what you get for telling me not to be myself.
You ignore all my pain and all my confusion,
and you expect me to listen when you have a problem.

Doll, I swear you're fooling only yourself.
You say that you liked me better when I was with him,
and I can't object to it.
Yet, if I say he's not the right one for you,
you snap, and everyone's supposed to hate me today.
I'm losing it and I swear I'm on the edge.
You may call yourself my friend, 
but one day I'm going to snap at you
until you learn how to shut you freaking mouth.

I'm not allowed to say my true feelings toward you.
Please, please God, JUST SHUT UP.
I can't deal with anything about you anymore.
Just let me put up my walls and lock my door.
I was fine before you took the down and told me I'm fine.

That's what you get when he makes you cry.
Just because you're "perfect" does not give you the right
to laugh and ask if your freaking hair looked okay
after you see Lauren bawling her eyes out.
and you have the nerve to act like that?

I'm sorry, but you deserve us yelling at you.
He's changed you into a cold-hearted beast
and I can't handle it anymore.
I'm not going to act like I'm not worried in the least.
You shouldn't have replaced yourself for a boy.
Maybe then you'd still have me to defend you.

But that's what you get.

Some people really do change for the worst, and then they expect people to forgive them. Really good poem!!!!:)

This is very good. I especially like the line; "Just because you are perfect does not give you the right.."
How many times have I felt this way. At least once daily. I appreciate this in your poem.
really great job.

Direct and honest statements in this poem. You went in many directions in the poem. I believe we need to be kind and be quiet if nothing good to be said. A interesting poem. I did like the closing line.
