When you ask,
I answer.
When I ask,
you ignor.
What is it you are hiding,
why must must I need to implore?

For years I have overlooked,
your trickery,
your sin,
and never you have answered me,
When will you begin?

The things you are hiding,
the secrets that you withold,
are tearing at mind,
are tearing at my soul.

So tell me this,
my truly beloved one.
When shall I be answered,
for my turn of lies, have now begun

you know how teen ink is always searching for poems that reflect how teenagers really act? Well this deffinitley does. One sugestion would be to take out the "for" and put "now" to make it sound more modern. but overall this is an excellent poem.

Alex, this poem reflects how teenagers really act--at least the good ones. It reflects how we good teenagers try to reach out to the other teenagers for them to do good things, we are ignored. This is an awesome poem, Alex. This sends a clear message to the reader.
