he says
this is no friendship
with the feelings i have
and honestly
i just want to
curl up on his leather couch
and play with his cats
and forget that he ever

this is a trap.
this is A TRAP.
shut up.
you’re the one who
created it and i am the one who
fell into it.

and in my desperation to
onto any pieces of
this friendship
i’ll apologize
for your actions
and you’ll accept
my apology
and break me
and over

I let you.

This is perfect. It really is. I fell in love with it right away because the energy flow is just perfect for your topic. You have an incredible amount of talent! NEVER stop writing. I (like) to think that some of my stuff has the same sort of style... I would love it if you could maybe critique some of it. I'm really looking for advice and ideas so I can expand my creativity when I write. :D

my girlfriend has a quote she used in some of her music "i wish for once i could fall in love and land on my feet, instead of falling face down in concrete." And you beautifully expressed that in this poem

I like this poem it shows the inner conflict in each person when they really fall for someone.

It says it like it is no horse crap.
