Love and Leave

Take this heart of gold
And turn it back to lead
Drown out all the words
Of love you've ever said

Steal away the purity
Make it revert to black
I know I gave you love
But I don't want any back

Hate me like you should,
Do not miss me at all.
I don't need you there
To watch me as I fall.

This is a wonderful poem. I read through some comments and I just want to say, no matter how hard things get, I'm sure you can overcome them. Just from the sound of your poetry, I can tell you are a strong person. I don't know you, but I just wanted to tell you that. Don't ever let anyone bring you down, and stay strong.

I had a guy friend that I really loved but he didn't love me back. He moved before school was over and I moved to a different house and school so now I never see him.

Yeah thanks.  He asked me out twice and I said no 'cause  I jus froze. That's why  I really need to think before I just jump and mess things up.

*Hugs Back* Thanks at least I have a loving family. You know I complain about not having a boyfriend but some people don't have supportive parents who care for them. My little sisters always crack me up. Like now their on the computer making faces into the camera. Sometimes we have to appreciate  lifes moments like that.

You don't get along with your family? I don't can't be around them forever, I might have to spend some time alone thinking in my room before I go out again because they can get on your nerves.

My sister's manipulative, my brother's violent and aggressive, my mom's never home, and my stepdad thinks that us kids should be more like him. So no, I don't get along with them.

Some people are just not compatible with their family. Your a senior in high school I'm sure you have plans for college so  you can change your outcome of your life. Like me yes I get along with my family but it's because I don't feel that I can tell them everything. I plan on moving to New York or California. My sister wants to come with but I'm not sure if I want to have my sister with me. Because I don't want my family to feel likeI'm influencing her to do the thi... (more »)
