    I thought you could save me From this sadness that’s taken over my life. But all I got was “I’ll ttyl.” Maybe later isn’t good enough. Maybe I’m on the verge of tears, Curled up in my bed, Crushing my bunny in a death grip hug, And I need you now, Have you considered that? I kn...

    Exactly. Why would two people want to spend their lives together is they make each other unhappy? Good point. Well love, here are my reasons 1. SOMETIMES (when they’re not too terribly busy being unhappy) they make each other REALLY happy, like I could die today and I’d be okay with it happy ...

    Why is a long, (let’s say mostly) happy marriage full of compromise and sensibility and healthy offspring named “the real thing?” The notion that “real” love belongs only to the sixty year old couples, who still peck kisses onto each other’s cheeks in the presence of there ever-growing p...

    How can you talk so much, And say so little? I said you babble, like the water of a stream, Running over pebbles and gurgling About nothing in particular. You got offended....

    Our parents say just don’t have sex, and that’s the end of it. Their sex talk consists of: don’t have sex because you’ll get pregnant. The school’s sex talk is even better: don’t have sex because you will catch a disease. They put it in such a negative light, when really it’s natural; ...

    Do other people find me as ignorant as I find them? I suppose I shouldn’t worry about it; it’s their problem if they think I‘m dense. But I do care; I’d hate for my peers, my superiors, anyone really, to view me in such an unappealing light. True, I see them that way, but I feel sorry for th...

    If I were a poem, I’d be romantic and sweet. Sensitive guys Would kneel at my feet. If I were a poem, I’d be funny and cute, Brighter than sunshine And sweeter than fruit. If I were a poem, I’d speak the tragic truth; I’d open your eyes And dissolve your youth. If I wer...

    Why can’t it just be all about lust? Why must we build a foundation on trust? I don’t see why order matters so much. As long as I enjoy as our bodies touch. We can build a lovely family together, sure. But why not have fun now, before we mature? While we are young, all sassy and bold, The...

    I'm sorry. I'm sorry that I told you too much. I'm sorry I assumed you'd understand. I'm sorry you became attached love, and now you feel foolish, but love, I became attached too, and your scathing words are hurting me. I'm sorry I said too much. I'm sorry ...

    the Universe I admire the moon, But I shoot for the stars. I crave to shine brightly, To best this so-called sun of ours. The planets could smoothly Transfer to me. We'd be a lovely solar system, Just wait and see. I still wouldn't forget my moon, Keep in mind, Every chunk of rock ...

    I’m sick of being sick. Every day symptoms change, and I plead and beg God to stop it because every day is worse than the one before. I thought it was bad the day I went to the doctor; I had the worst headache of my life and my lymph nodes were swollen and ached. I figured the antibiotics would ki...

    What if this is as good as it’s gonna get; I should scoop up this chance. Maybe THIS is my fairytale. Maybe we WILL live happily ever after. Maybe life WON’T tear us apart. Maybe we ARE niave and it’s NOT such a bad thing. Maybe we DO love each other. MAYBE that’s enough. But still, ...

    I’m having a bad day; No additional explanation needed. Why must you question my every movement and sigh? They are not filled with reasonable Anguish and distress. Only inner conflicts, Too fallacious to surmount....

    Even if it happened a long time ago, And they don’t seem like that kind of person, Like, at all, It really throws you for a loop When you find out you lover’s Deep dark secret. The initial shock keeps you silent, (Luckily, so you don’t say anything rash) But then when it finally sinks ...

    Why do our parents say It’s so futile and juvenile For two teenagers to fall in love? Why can’t we? So what if we don’t love like adults? So what if we hold hands To show our affection? Who are they to say That’s not good enough? And why not enjoy Whatever it is we have While we...

    Why do you sneer? Why do you whisper and snicker, Like a seven year old half your age? Why don’t you just ignore me, Give me the famous too-popular-for-you cold shoulder? Why do you emerge, ready for battle, Only when surrounded by your followers, Any army of reinforcements. These are rhet...

    How awful it must be To always stand beside STDs, on a list of reasons For teenagers to not have sex. How awful to be A living reminder Of your mother’s mistake And your father’s too. How awful is it When people say, “Wow, what a young mother” Instead of “What a cute baby.” ...

    I don’t want to sound clingy. That’s why I don’t tell you that I get lonely when you don’t reply to my texts. I don’t want to monopolize your time. That’s why I tell you that you don’t have to come meet me between every class during the day, though I would be crush to walk by myself...

    We walk each other to classes; We wrap one another in a warm almost side-hug kind of grasp as we navigate crowded hallways. We civilly discuss Bio projects and unfinished Chem homework. We part with a quick peck on the lips and hurry off in opposite directions as the two minute bell rings. The ...

    Have you ever made out in a park? On a cool fall afternoon, After school? Next to a river? On the steep slope of the dirt path, Knees muddy, and slowly sliding down the incline, While he pulls you up, closer to him? His shirt tossed aside atop the tall unkempt weeds, And you wrapped up in a...

    Only he Could make me feel guilty for wanting to kiss him. Telling me we’ve made out a lot (plenty) this weekend, Making me feel like a foolish child who tries to horde too much candy at once. Only he Could make me feel in the wrong For feeling dejected About being rejected, Like a pout...

    Write a song; About what? The dismay I feel about everytrhing in my life? When other people do it, it’s catchy and relatable; For me, it would only be complaining. Plus.. you need a melody for a song. So… do you want me to steal one from another song or make one up? Because… I can’t r...

    It seems like nothing could ever tear us apart, But still I worry Every day That he will break up with me, That he will find someone better, And want her. He says he will never break up with me, And we will be together until I get sick of him. But people lie. Just picture a couple saying ...
