Tangled

Tangled
This love is tangled
Like my earphones
Like your hair

We need someone with patience
(And long nails)
To sort it out

But you are impatient
And so am I
So we wait

And wait
(And wait)
But they do not come

smile through everything no matter how bad it gets because it could be worse and if it gets worse well then it can only get better. :)

It is better to write for yourself and have no audience than write for your audience and have no self.

this was so great! and if things end up sour, i suggest a sequal entitled "scissors" ;) Again, nice work!!!

I like how you compare your love to things that tangle so easily and frequently. These examples really help you illustrate the purpose of your poem and I think that was done very well. I also enjoy how relatable this poem is to everyday life. Very well done!
