Leave Me Alone

Take me in your arms let me know you care
Give me some kind of hope to let me know you're there
Having you here with me now please tell me how
You push me away and tell me stay
Not ever knowing what tomorrow holds today

Giving me hurt and causing me pain
I'm so tired of playing these stupid love games
Tears of sadness or tears of joy
Losing my cool over a stupid boy
Take me in your arms let me know you care
Give me some kind of hope to let me know you're there

Why am I here and why are you there
Doing this over again just isn't fair
Loving you is hard to do when we can't make it through the ups and the downs, the good and the bad, making me happy or making me sad

So leave me alone and let me be
Cause it's obvious now you don't need me

The author's comments:
I wrote this piece after my first love and I were broke up by my parents when i was entering high school. He was gone for over three years when he finally came back and I had moved on when he hadn't. Then when I found out he had kids I was crushed cause as we all know you never get over your first love it just gets easier. Any ways I was really upset and wrote this poem when he left. Now that he's back I'm stronger than I ever was and realise that I don't need a guy to make me happy! And neither does any other girl. It also works the other way for guys too!
