A Poem by Kait

This is not really any particular reason for this. I had a fight with my boyfriend, but I changed his character to my ex's. This poem is the way I would have reacted to a fight with him rather than with my boyfriend.

I trusted you and let you in,
I knew it would hurt in the end.
Why?! Why?! I'm stuck screaming in the dark.
While you easily claw out my heart.
Years to come, I knew I would cry for you,
but I thought for now, my worries would be few.
Then you strut up to me to say,
the things I thought I could avoid their pay.
Stupid mirrors, that I'm looking in now;
those tears in the eyes call for playing foul!
How does it always end in my fault?
No matter how much effort I exalt.
You were my first in several ways,
you even made my dark world turn to days.
I never thought you would throw it back in my face,
but I guess you were a special case.
Seems I always fall for the wrong type;
guess that perfect guy is just a girls hype.
Now, you ask me to postpone your stay,
I say "yes" but in a mischevious way.
In this world you may stay,
but as for me, I'll fly away.
I hope you cry when I'm gone.
Either way, I'll smile at dawn.

very nice, I felt guilty as I read it cause a similar situation happened to me when I broke a promise to a very special friend of mine. She trusted me and I betrayed her trust. I appologized and she has forgiven me and now I am making sure that I never do that again. Also there is no such thing as the perfect guy, we are all imperfect. its when us guys are with the one we love that we become perfect, atleast in their eyes.

So sadly moving, expressing the awakening of first love and the pain of that first separation... The emotion here was so strongly expressed and beautifully written.

I'm a teen living in the world just like you. What sets us apart? our lives, our status, and our methods to cope. I live my life day to day. In the changes of the my being I lost myself, like you I sp.. more..
