A Midbummer Night's Scream

Making my way to class,
When I see him,
I feel like an ass.
I feel grim.
With just one look,
Someone shot me with a bow,
And my breath he took.
No one treats me the way he used to.
I did not try to woo.
“I love you,” I said,
There was no “I love you, too”
Now I feel dead.
I need words to bring him back.
And keep me on track.
So stop asking if there’s someone I’m dating.
My life
Is what I’m hating.
I cannot picture myself as a wife.
As if my day couldn’t get any worse,
Mom said my math teacher called Dad.
And my pen ruined my new purse.
I am so mad.
He really didn’t want to talk.
So I am really fast
As I walk
And try to forget my past.
Instead of trying to die
I just cry.
I can’t stop thinking.
I’m tossing and turning.
I feel like I’m sinking.
I just lost a friend.
I am lonely.
Is this the end?
He really was the one and only.
Though I take rejection well,
I am ashamed.
I am in Hell.
I need to be tamed.
I miss everything.
What will tomorrow bring?
I picked up the phone
And I gave him a call.
But I got the busy tone.
I just wanted to hear his voice, that’s all.
I don’t know what’s wrong with me.
I want to run away.
My past won’t leave me be.
I did not have a good day.
I am waving the white flag.
This is bad.
What a drag.
Why am I going mad?
I am a great girl.
I am going to hurl.
He said we needed to talk.
I am nervous
As I walk
Down the hallway I wonder what happened to us.
It’s like I’ve lost my grip.
I’m heading towards him
And taking a trip
That’s going to be cold and dim.
I still remember
We didn’t have a chance
Back in December
To have our dance.
I hope it’s going to rain
So it washes away the pain.
He said he liked my laugh.
He told me my hair was cute one day
While I still thought I sounded like some giraffe
And my hair didn’t look right that way.
I sought out to see his smiles.
I would do anything
For him even if I was thousands of miles
Away. I loved him from the beginning.
I loved him with my whole soul.
I need to regain
Strength to get me out of this hole
And handle the pain.
It’s a slap in the face
To be in my place.
He never said “I love you” back.
What he didn’t do is killing me.
It’s like I’ve been whacked
by somebody.
I can’t explain
What’s going on
But I hope this horrible strain
Is soon to be gone.
It’s like I’m reading
some terrible book.
Someone is beating
Me. He took
My heart and broke
It. I am starting to choke.
I love you.
I will. Always.
I wish you felt that way, too.
Sullen are the days.
We used to be great friends.
I wish I didn’t say anything.
I am at a dead end.
Hopefully this will bring
You back.
I am trying my best.
I am losing track.
Losing someone is such a pain in the chest.
Lighting the dark
Is no picnic in the park.
I broke my little compact
Two weeks ago.
I couldn’t put the contact
In my eye and I hurt my toe.
My friend is secretly dating some guy.
“Truly Madly Deeply” was my favorite song.
But why?
I have nobody, that’s what’s wrong.
I am practically on my knees as I kick and shout
“Please!”
I can’t get out.
To top it all off, I am failing math.
So feel my wrath.
