As I sit alone listening to sad songs
I try to figure out all of my wrongs
A drop of tear slides down my cheek
But crying just shows that I'm so weak

I must continue to stand strong
I'll write my own heartbroken song
I'll sing the words of my heart
You and I can't be too far apart

How'd our story come to this end?
It was just starting to extend
And it was so sudden and unexpected
My soul crushed as I was rejected

If only I could rewrite our romance
If only you'd give me just one chance
If only you'd see me for who I am
You'd understand I'm not one of them

I'll still hold on to you for awhile
To prove that I might be worthwhile
I'm not as shallow as they were
I've got nothing to do with her

My heart refuses to let you go
I love you too much, you should know
You tell me that you like me too
But I wonder if it's really true

We're strangers now, nothing more
Leaving my heart hollow and sore
Deprived of the love I have given out
That I shall have to live without

The sun and moon rise and fall
And I throw my empty heart at the wall
Tears stream past my barricade
Because my love for you will not fade.

I wrote this about a boy I like who's afraid to love me back. He was hurt badly after his first date and he thinks that I'll hurt him too. If only he'd give me a chance..

Hey, I loved this! Awesome job, really. It's cool how you managed to get every two lines to rhyme. I tried that once, never worked...stopped by the fourth line.

Anyways, hopefully whoever this is about decides to give you a chance!

wow, this is fabulous! The narrator's pain is clearly shown in the poem.. I have a friend who is also afraid to get into a relationship, and the problem is, it won't be fun if he/she is too nervous to let it be.

It's a great poem, and the pain of the narrator is shown clearly through the words. I love it!

Thanks for the comments on my poems! :]

"Tears stream past my barricade

Because my love for you will not fade" those were my favorite lines. The whole poem was very well written. I love that style of writing, where each stanza is full of couplets. I write a lot that exact same way. It's tricky getting the rhythm right AND being able to describe a meaningful passageway to your feelings, and you combined both of those very beautifully. Oh, and thanks for the comment on "What im going throught". i really appreciate it.
