Because I love you.

Because I love you.

A Poem by Naomi Roseღ


I say I am okay.

I keep my real emotions
hidden away.

I smile and laugh with
my friends, even though
its all a lie. 

Inside, I am dying slowly.

Inside, I am ripping myself
apart every day.

On the inside, I am crying. 

I mentally abuse myself
to keep you safe.

I don't want to.

You don't want me to. 

But I do it because I
love you.

Writing-wise, sure there's room for improvement, but it still delivers a pretty strong statement, good job.

Aww... this is so tragically sad, but I have to admit that it's relatable for me.
Honest work. I like it

This is not a bad poem! Its freaking wonderful! Keep your head up girl! I've been there! It does get better! But you have to help yourself also. I know that its just not that simple, even tho it sounds like it is. But have faith! Hang in there girl, and pray. Everything is going to be ok! I will pray for you too. :]

At one point we must all learn that it's okay to tell someone how you feel about them, if they're really worth it they won't break your heart. It's not bad, it's not perfect. But nothing ever is. Keep writing. Always.

It's beautiful, it reminds me of what i let my heart suffer, for i love someone, but alas, i don't let him know, for i don't want to get hurt. in the end, i let my heart die every moment i see him

this is what happens when the heart is afraid to feel good expression of pain and fear

The is one emotional enigmatic piece.
I think you would write great lyrics.
Getting straight to the heart of the matter
is one of your strengths as a writer.
