What Do You Do

What do you do when you can't have what you want

When your heart pleads for something but you can’t give it what it wants

When someone tells you that they love you but are with someone else

What do you do when your world is crashing down but no one can help you

What do you do when you’re trying to write a good poem but all that comes out is the sad truth

When it all leaks out even though you tried to hide it

What do you do when you can’t get someone out of your mind

When they’re stuck there all morning, all day, and all night

When you zone out of class cause you’re thinking of them

What do you do when you wana be dead

So no one can hurt you or mess with you ever again

What if you wana runaway and never be seen again

Do you go for it, or just stay here and be hurt all over again

What do you do when they rip out your heart

When they rip it to shreds, then offer to fix it

What do you do when you feel half dead

I guess what I need is help cause I’m locked in my head
