Let it go

If I scream loud enough,
Will it shake off this dark cloud
Hanging over my shoulders?
If I draw enough attention,
Will it get my point across?

I’m done with being depressed over you
I get sick just seeing him with you
You ripped me to pieces,
And it will remain Over.

Let it go! Let it go! Let it go! I tell myself
It’s not enough! Not enough! Not enough! I cry
I’m breaking up! Breaking up! Breaking up! You tell me
All that’s left! All that’s left! All that’s left! Is to ask why?

Breathe a little deeper
Don’t shed a single tear
Refuse to be the victim
Love, get your hands away from me

We never would have lasted
I’m full of myself; you’re full of guilt
How could I help you
If you don’t seem to care?

I’ll die to be seen
You’ll die to remain hidden
We were in different directions from the beginning
Don’t you see I don’t want to talk anymore?

Let it go! Let it go! Let it go! I tell myself
It’s not enough! Not enough! Not enough! I cry
I’m breaking up! Breaking up! Breaking up! You tell me
All that’s left! All that’s left! All that’s left! Is to ask why?

Breathe a little deeper
Don’t shed a single tear
Refuse to be the victim
Love, get your hands away from me

Don’t want anymore apologies
I tore up all the notes you wrote
You’re right: I do deserve better
And you deserve some self respect

I’ve said my piece
Don’t rub anymore in my face
You hope we can still be friends
But how, when I can’t stand to look at you?

Let it go! Let it go! Let it go! I tell myself
It’s not enough! Not enough! Not enough! I cry
I’m breaking up! Breaking up! Breaking up! You tell me
All that’s left! All that’s left! All that’s left! Is to ask why?

Breathe a little deeper
Don’t shed a single tear
Refuse to be the victim
Love, get your hands away from me

And now I’m back to where I was before
Refuse to give my heart away again

This sounded really, extremely angry. I like the emotion, but it was choppy. Lacked rhythm. It feels like you got so angry, you just typed. Emotion is good, but too much of a good thing can be bad. Calm down just a little next time and get it together. This is not your best work. But, you have some good things. You've got passion. I think your onto something great :)

Well, my only advice, if you want to make something emotional, is to not hold back. Just take whatever your feeling out and cram it into your writing, unfiltered. You really have to look inside and understand yourself if you want others to see the emotion in your work.

Okay. After looking at your work, you really don't need any pointer. I love your writing!
