So, I like you,
Then why did I just do that,
I told you I could never talk to you again,
Great, I screwed up.

You looked so hurt,
You asked me why,
I told you a lie,
Yep, I screwed up.

You said you dont know what to say,
I said I'm sorry,
Then you just walked away,
Wonderful, I screwed up.

I tried to explain,
but got tongue tied,
So everything came out wrong.
Like always, I screwed up.

I'm pushing you away,
I always do this,
I really dont want to,
So why did I screw up?

I really hope I can fix this tomorrow,
I wrote you a letter telling you to meet me,
I hope you'll come,
So I can try to un-screw my screw up

When I started to get feelings for my current boyfriend, it scared me so I told him that I could never talk to him again.

Both of your poems that I've read have just been amazing. Again, everyone can relate. I do this a lot.. push myself away when I feel to close to someone. The words flow beautifully and it seem effortless... 5/5.

I like this one a lot too. I find myself doing this  a lot, even though I don't know why. I like the last line it ties the whole poem together. Great job.
