I Don't Wanna Wake Up

Too many beautifuls
Too many compliments
You treat me so well
I don't know how to feel
I have never felt like this

I don't wanna wake up
Cry away the makeup
I put on just to be special
For you to waste it
I don't wanna taste love
And bite a poisoned apple
I don't wanna be
Hurt

You say you like me
It's no lie that I like you.
But last time that I felt for you,
I got hurt
Can I put myself through misery?
Am I strong enough to handle this?
Am I deserving?

I don't wanna taste happily ever after
Only to flooded with reality
I don't wanna be a princess
Just to have the crown snatched away
I don't wanna wake up
Cry away the makeup
I put on just to be special
For you to waste it
I don't wanna taste love
And bite a poisoned apple
I don't wanna be
Hurt

But I know love hurts
Maybe, just maybe
I'll take the risk
Of letting my heart get broken
I'll never know until I try


I don't wanna wake up
Cry away the makeup
I put on just to be special
For you to waste it
I don't wanna taste love
And bite a poisoned apple
I don't wanna be
Hurt

This is good! I really love the title. One line that I don't think was right, like grammatically, was "Only to flooded with reality." I like what you are trying to say there, though. Other than that, nice job!

Thank you so much!! It was just something I was writing when I was having doubts, but I took a chance, it didn't work out, and so I guess I did bite my poisoned apple ;) But I'm doing a bit better now. Thank you all so much!

WOW! Talk about deep. Holy cow. This a truly sentimental piece of work. Whoever the guy is in this poem is a real jerk, and he obviously effected you in a very deep way.

Don't let him get to you so much.

This is a GREAT piece of work.
