Your hair is long and blonde.

You've got eyes like the sky.

Is it a stormy sky?
Yes, I'd say you're quite pretty

But how deep does it go?

You say I know you

But do I really?

I think you hide a lot...

But what is there to hide?

Is your "goodness" truly fake?

You say you know me

But do you really?

You never listen

You never care.

Do you know how much I cared for you?

All I wanted was acceptance

All you had to do was be my friend,

To notice me,

To talk to me.

I'm sick of all the half-truths.

And the empty promises...

They're the worst.

I should never've let my hope go up

Cause inside I knew

You'd let me down.

I don't wanna be your 13th choice.

I don't wanna be your doormat.

So I'm not gonna waste my time,

My love,

My friendship,

On someone who truly doesn't care.

Cause if I disappeared,

You wouldn't notice.

You say you would,

But don't lie to me cause I know.

I'm not stupid.

I can clearly see when I'm not wanted.

And I don't mind, 

Cause as of now,

You're not wanted either.

This poem was inspired by one of my friends. Someone who I once thought was a good friend...

Hmm...I think that just became my new favorite word as well :) Thank you so much for sharing it with me! And if I may say...I don't know what you look like Liv.Harris, and I don't know very much about you, but what I do know has impressed me immensely. I believe that you possess a lot of kalon and a very good heart :) Thank you so so so much for taking the time to read my poems and comment on them :) And you keep up the great work as well!!!

But only another birth"

I hate the feeling I get when I think someone is my friend and it turns out they aren't. We could all use a good person, especially one with a genuinely good heart. Sometimes the beauty people have isn't anything more than skin deep. My favorite word for people who maybe aren't that extravagant, but they are just so good would have to be Kalon. It means berauty that is more than skin deep. It reminds me a lot of this poem, which is so great! Keep up the great work! XD
