i think i have had enough
you just dont get it, do you
i have been pushing you away
because you are crowding me
you should be supporting me
when i want to go hang out with my friends
but no, you hold me back
you make me feel bad
you act like i am leaving you forever
oh my god! like grow up
an hour is not that long
you are so immature that you cant
let me be my own person
i let you do that for a while now
but not anymore, i've had it!
i cant take this anymore
you are just going to have to deal with it
i am sorry that this is going to hurt you
but i have to take care of me
i have to meet my own needs
i am done, i need some space!
i used to love you...
but not now, that you are all in my face
let me explain some simple things to you
when i walk away from you
that means i need some space
and when i start a fight with you
that is me trying to tell you
that i need some time to myself
i am sorry, but i have no more patience
and another problem is, i do not love you!
i know what i am saying is harsh
but i  have been nice about it long enough
you have pushed me to my limit
i have absoulutely no more patience
i will have to be cold, till you get it
i am about ready to make the break
and then run away.
im losing my mind
with you always following me
i just need some space okay?
i know i am repeating myself
but you dont ever seem to understand
if i only say this once.
im sorry that it has to be this way
but i dont love you
and thats all i can say
i know this will hurt you
but i have to be true to myself
i just need a break...
i need you to let me be
go with your friends, please!
i'll end this letter now
and state my point one more time
i'm not a mean person for doing this 
i'm a girl, growing up, who knows what she wants
and who is going to finally think about herself
and not just try to please people
and try and keep them happy. 
so, goodbye. i guess thats it
know that i really really wish
i could do this, without hurting you
but i dont see any other way. </3

I really like how you have broken this piece down. you really get to see and feel the raw feelings of the writer this way. I totally understand where you are coming from - i have gone through this sort of thing myself. But there is hope - you will find your prince someday! I found mine (:

This is another great poem with obvious emotional ties. It is very raw and real and I appreciate that. Again, my only advice is edit the grammar errors. You will be taken a lot more seriously and will have a better chance of getting published! :)
