put me down

Never been the type of girl
Who would take her guitar
And scream at the world
My life hasn’t been great so far

No one understands
And the only thing I cant comprehend
Is why I feel like this
Tell me after all the s***
I tried to do for you

(chorus)
Why don’t you put me down?
that’s the only thing you know how to do
My feelings are in a circle, round and round
How would you know?
that these feelings of mine are put away in a closet
Click the lock and walk away

I cry while you would laugh
I want everything I never had
A family to cherish
To share those memories with
But beneath all of this
Is a girl with a broken heart that no one can fix

I’ll tell you this.
You’ll regret it
‘cuz when I walk out that door
and then you’ll see a girl
who you never cared for
who will someday change the world

(chorus)

I know I’m not beautiful
And yea I’ll admit I get stressful
A lot
So take the gun and take a shot
Cuz one thing I have learned
Is that the only ones that can hurt you
Is the one things that doesn’t show their feelings

Love and be learned
Maybe that’s not the case
But I promise you this
When my body is beneath this ground
I would’ve found
One person who cares for me
For whom I am
Which isn’t you

This is a very moving poem. I like how you repeat part of it, or the chorus. It certainly makes the message and meaning stick. One part that I did not understand, however, were the lines, "Is that the only ones that can hurt you/ Is the one things that doesn't show their feelings." The meaning of these lines is not clear.

I can relate to this poem. I like the line  "I cry while you would laugh I want everything I never had a family to cherish." I can relate to this poem because I feel the same way with my parents, and I feel my dad wants to see me fail.This poem was good, I think it was easy to relate to. Next a little touch of symbolism can be added.

I can relate to this poem. I used to feel this way.  Well, I still do sometimes just not as bad. I liked it when you said 'cuz when I walk out that door and then you'll see a girl who you never cared for who will someday change the world.
