Wishful Thinking

Wishful thinking left and right
Don’t even know how I feel tonight
My stony glare fills with tears
The hope in me disappears
Stay good stay better
Stay who you are forever
Don’t let anyone take that ever
I force myself to tell another lie
As I found it’s the only way left for me to survive
I wish I love I hate I die
I live within no room to cry
My pulse seems to be fading
Slowly it fades down, down and away
I hope I’m missed when I’m gone
I hope someone thinks of me when they hear my favorite song
I walk right towards the light
And I softly say goodbye to my fight
I wish I love I hate I die
Goodbye, goodbye, I’m gone tonight

By the way, in the comments I made about your poems I was trying to think of "constructive criticism" and whatnot.
The thing is, I've been thinking and I've decided that poems are usually for the writer. If the larger audience is able to find some enjoyment in it, that's merely a by product. I did like your poems, I can relate, but then, so can many teenagers.
The bottom line is that if ... (more »)

I'm not sure what to say...
Technically, very good with the rhyming and such.
Otherwise, very sad and depressing -- not that it's a bad thing, per se.
I don't know what to say.
