some things will never change:
the way I write down everything.
how everything is kept for the memory

they way you
look at me.

while others will:
girls will come and go.
boys will come and go.
what we admit to each other.

why do we do this?
sit here and
act.
we’re not actors or actresses just teenagers
yet we pretend we cannot feel the tension.

Tension. tension. tension.
its louder than thunder.
brighter than lightening
everybody can feel it.

compliments.
real feelings hidden under sarcasm.
looks, sharp as needles stabbing at one another,
daring to make a move.

Ok, I really should have said this to this stupid guy that I had a stupid crush on... sorta still have it. But anyways, I can definitely relate to this, so I loved it. But I adored it because your poetry writing and flow is magnificent. Good job. I really liked this.

This is relatable and realistic, very well-put and well-rhythmed.  Nice job.
