Air Supply

I need this in my life,
I won't go through the strife.
If you could only see
My lung capacity
You would leave me some laughs, cries, and smiles
And leave me to my mistakes and trials.
But you just turn a blind eye
So I suffocate and die.
Let me be impulsive
And let me learn to live.
I'm choking and I'm wheezing
And yet you keep on squeezing.
You can't leash me to a tree,
Try and have some faith in me.
Wanting to help can't justify
Why you cut off my air supply.

Very simple, well-written, and relatable. I can tell you put your heart into your poetry.

I can really relate to this. My mom doesnt want me to be in a relationship with a guy, because she's scared for me. she doesnt want me to get hurt, and she thinks i'll go through the same things she did. She doesnt wanna let me live to the fullest. I think i'll show her your poem, maybe then she'll get me. :) great job btw :)
