"I do not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." ~Voltaire


Useless device of those that fear solitude,
I will not succumb to your lusty allure
I prefer my lonely attitude
To the drama and heartache I strive to deter

The boys and girls preceeding me
That took the fiery road of relationship
Now claw at their agonized hearts, never free
(And I want nothing to do with it)

You keep your grip so tight on fools
That cling to hopes if only in vain
Hopes that their love clings to fairytale rules
To face the dead, icy weight of rejection again

You cut our wrists and be still untrue
Pathetic love, I don’t need you

It's not about success; it's about significance.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

This is very beautifully written. Keep up the good work!

We're all just looking for attention, to be discovered overnight. We're all frustrated by the popular ones that claim the limelight before they fall to pieces. So many of us are stuck under the radar--what makes me different? You decide!

Be nice to trees- they'll become books someday.

I feel the same way. I feel a little bitterness from this poem like you want to be alone but at the same time you don't. I understand this complex emotion. Amazing.

Psh, I doubt that. And if I do, not for long. In any case, I give the biggest thumbs up in the history of thumbs ups. :D

So true. When they finish editing it, look at my "Love and Why we have it."
