Best Bet Hug

We’d never met before,
But I still trusted you.
We’d made bets on each other.
And I still tried to protect,
you from me. You didn’t think,
that you needed that.
We’re very similar.
We both love hugs.
I wasn’t surprised when,
you wanted to bet who is better.
“Never lift me up,” I told you;
“You’ll get hurt, and I’ll cry.”
You did anyway.
And even though I screamed at you,
I was happy that you did.
…Sorry.

i feel like there was something else behind those words... and it made me think... and thats good. sometimes poets like to talk in riddles (if this is what you were aiming for). Very good. spacing (like a new verse/paragraph might make it more powerful and blunt with the punch of words. And dont care what other people think about your writing its YOUR writing. if they dont like then dont read it. haha. keep writing  =]
