Holy Schnitzels

You’re not the same you
You’re such a different person
And trying to understand you now
Would make this heartbreak worsen

You probably think I’m a dork
And you’re so hot and cool
Honey, you once were
When all your words were true

Or maybe you didn’t love me back
Or had the heart to care
Or maybe when you told me you had to go
It was just to fix your hair

Or maybe when you typed to me
Assuring me, she could go to Hell
I would bet at exactly the same time
You were myspacing her as well

I wish I could tell you all these things
But I know you’d never listen
No matter how hot or slutty I ever get
Your heart I’ll never win

I know I say I always hate you
But believe me it’s never true
I fall asleep every night
Thinking about the guy I once knew

And a cursor will be blinking at the end of this poem
On a lonely computer screen
I swear to God, if you happen to read it
You’ll know exactly who I mean

But I’ll keep strumming my repeating chords
And drawing my heartfelt lines
I’ll keep pouring my broken heart out
Through these sad, lonely rhymes

In twenty-years everyone will know my name
I’ll be on top of the world
And you’ll be a hobo in your crumpled box
Thinking, “If only I loved that girl”

I heard right after I dumped you, you started to laugh
Smiling that way you always do
And I knew at that moment you were already changed
You weren’t that guy I once knew

Well, now I can say with all my heart
With all the power behind my words
With all the pieces you left behind
With the rest of this life I’ll serve

You are so disgusting, so low, so filthy
That I can’t even look at you know
You’re so far beneath me
That you’re “friends” had to dig you out

Oh, honey, you better listen to this one
This is my favorite part
At my funeral, my will will say
“Sweetheart you know I’ll always hate you


With all of my heart”

haha, I'd like to believe I will be. I'm actually an 8th grader in Signet so I wrote this for my signet class. The guy I'm writing about is in this class, too, and I've always wanted him to know how I feel...I wrote this in the middle of the night and I guess, it just got here haha

"Don't do drugs, don't have unprotected sex, and don't be violent. Leave that to me.

Wow, that was really good. I can feel your emotion and your go through the circle in this; remorse, anger, loneliness, hate, then nothing. Two suggestions. When you say: "Through these sad, lonely rhymes." The meter sounds better if you say sad AND lonely rhymes. Next, you say, "That I can't even look at you know," Is it supposed to say now? Otherwise very good. Keep writing and if you're lucky, only ten years till your on top of the world!
