High School Isn't Made For Love

A relationship couldn't be more confusing
When we're in and out of these bipolar delusions
Because our awkward conversations drain all of my patience
But I’ll never stop waiting for you,
Because that's just what 'best friends' do.
I remember acting crazy, the times of calling you my baby
And I've been wondering lately,
Do you ever wonder the same about me?

I always considered it a road I never want to return to
But I've never completely been able to stop holding onto
The way it felt to really know you
And have some place to share my head
Unwind my mind and let you inside instead
Of all this cynical madness filling me
When I lay down on my mattress
And find that I can't escape the frozen chill
Rolling in from the window sill
Because I'm alone and I can't get used to it… still.

Messy hearts and scribbled lines
Passing notes to pass the time
You filled the holes in my flawed design
But at sixteen, “I love you,” is never enough
High school just isn’t made for love

I remember really paying attention
Having interests in things that I now barely even mention
Because when you walked out the door
You left everything a mess
Left me in distress without a savior
Imprisoned by the flavor of your lips
And the curves of your hips
And I know I can't turn around in this dead end
I should have never pushed past the point of just friends

When it started, you made me promise that I'd never hate you
Because that was just something that you said I’d do
When I'd fall for a girl and make her my world
And watch it fall apart and let her break my heart
And I know I should be grateful that you're still in my life
But when I lay my head down at night
I always find myself wishing I could've done things right
Because all I've got now is a good story
And I know I say it too much, but I'm sorry
For all the mistakes I made
I know I'm responsible for the way your feelings had to fade

Messy hearts and scribbled lines
Passing notes to pass the time
You filled the holes in my flawed design
But at sixteen, “I love you,” is never enough
High school just isn’t made for love

I just wanted to let you know that you were my favorite season
And you never needed a reason to walk away
So thank you for the time you stayed and played my little game
Exposed me to the bright world and took away my pain
Until you tired and laid it all to rest
Picked the man that was best

Messy hearts and scribbled lines
Passing notes to pass the time
I was the holes in your flawed design

That’s when I realized that nothing is ever sent from above
High school just isn't made for love.

cool poem man, I know EXACTLY how you feel and it sucks a lot, which seems to be a big understatement, but that's the only way I can explain it without getting into as much detail as you had.
