Can’t you see they’re hurting you?
That the bad guys that you date
Are only keeping you, dragging you down
And filling your heart with that much hate?

In them you see adventure
In them you see fun
But when I take one look at them
All I see is another one

Another one with a criminal record
Another one that’s just a wreck
Another one who hates his life
One with chokers around his neck

Another one who will bring you down
Another one who drinks
Another arrogant, foul mouthed one
And I can’t help but think

What the heck is wrong with me?
For I’ve been by your side
Through darkest dark, the saddest nights
The ones you sat next to me and cried

I am clean, polite, and kind, not cruel
I’ve helped you through thick and thin
I love you in a way they never could
So how come they always win?

Why are you still attracted to them?
And the Mohawks on their heads
The ones who can’t go a single night
Without their fix of drugs or meds

And while you party with him, you drink
And I just sit and wonder and think
Would I get your affection too
If I could pound down more than two?

You’re sweet, you’re kind, you’re never cruel
And it just sickens me
To know a girl as great as you
Can’t love a guy like me

I agree completely. Guys always wonder why girls are attracted to the "bad boy" type and the truth is its mainly because it sdifferent. Its something new and intriguing and something that makes life seem fun. But thats just me.

For someone who's just on Teenink for the forums, that was pretty impressive. :) Poetry's never been my thing, so I'm kind of a sucker for it. I say thumbs up.

Before I'm serious I'm just going to say...guys with mohawks and chokers are freaking hot. haha...the drugs...um...not so much.

Anyways...hmm...the problem isn't that you aren't good enough for her...it's that she feels she isn't good enough for you. And...that's just me assuming that this is about you.

 

You're a good writer. Not very poetic, but you get your point across and pack emotions into your words.
