Just Because

October 11, 2011
Just because you tell me not to fall,
It doesn’t mean I won’t
Just because you tell me not to care,
It doesn’t mean I don’t
Just because you kiss me,
It doesn’t mean I like it
Just because I have feelings for you,
It doesn’t mean I won’t fight it
Just because my heart isn’t glass,
It doesn’t mean it won’t break
Just because I don’t like you,
It doesn’t mean I’m fake
Just because we’re close,
It doesn’t mean you’re my favorite
Just because you think you know the game,
It doesn’t mean I haven’t played it
Just because my heart is shattered,
It doesn’t mean I’ll cry
Just because I have to,
It doesn’t mean I’ll try
Just because you talk to me,
It doesn’t mean I’ll listen
And just because my life isn’t perfect,
I’ll keep praying and I’ll keep wishing

Beautiful work, ButterflySoulGirl. I love the rhythm and the remarkably smooth flow in this poem....and to top it off I love the picture that accompanies it! Great job, don't stop writing! :)
