"Don't cry because it's over,
Smile because it happened."


-Dr. Suess


I look around and try to see,
Why everybody is so mad at me,
But nobody will look me in the eye,
Nobody on Earth will tell me why.

I think I have a little feeling,
But the thought to me is very chilling,
I have realized that I made a mistake,
But I never meant for anyone's heart to break.

I don't mean to mess up all the time,
It just happens and I know its a crime,
I never mean to cause anyone pain,
It's just I'm a little insane.

Falling in love for me is way to easy,
All the guys turn out to be nothing but sleazy,
They always make me so mad I fight,
Which causes them to clench their fist tight.

Then they turn on me because I'm such a brat,
I don't know why but I'm just like that,
All my friends get mad 'cause I care,
They hurt me so much it isn't even fair.

I yell at my parents way to much,
I deserve it when the belt and my butt touch,
I really should show them respect,
But I never understand their dialect.

I start to trust a lot of guys,
Just 'cause I fall in love with their eyes,
In the end they all stab me in the back,
In the end I always have a heart attack.

I hurt people sometimes on accident,
It's all because of my bad judgment,
I never think before I speak,
I need to learn to turn the other cheek.

I believe guys when they say, “I love you,”
The way they say it makes it sound so true,
But like I say I make mistakes,
Every time I think about it my heart aches.

Eventually everything turns out alright,
But still it keeps me up late at night,
Even though I mess up I'll try my best,
And put all the other incidents to rest.

"There’s no such thing as true love, just spurts of insanity—falling over and over again, thinking that won’t happen to me"

"I start to trust a lot of guys, Just 'cause I fall in love with their eyes," I loved those lines; they were my favorite. I loved the poem overall too, but some of those lines really touched me. You're good with words! Keep Writing!

Great ending stanza! And, as I'm finding to be true in all your poems, this is relatable :) which is a verrrry good thing. Do you ever write like, LEGIT free verse, with no rhymes? Just curious  ;P
