You say i'm the bad guy.
You look into my heart, the open wound, and see
nothing.
Because it's too dark to see, because i'm to dark to be anything else but the bad guy.
You say i'm the fool.
You explore the reaches of my mind, the world of my
philosophies, and see little.
Because there's too much to see, because i'm
too much to be anything else but the fool.
You say i'm the hypocrite.
You feel my words, the only art i know, and
see lies.
Because the truth is so hard to see, because the truth means too
much to me to be anything else but the hypocrite.
You say that you love me.
You take these things, my heart, my mind, my
words, and see agony.
Because it hurts so much to see, because it hurts
too much to be anything else but love...


The author's comments:
It's sort of a cliche, being the tragic teenage poet. Writing poems of the pains of love and how people just don't understand. In reality, love can be quite wonderful, and often coincides with someone who does understand. We as teenagers tend to write darker poetry, because despite ourselves and our situations, we have dark minds. This is my example.
