    Sometimes when I think of the future, I get a smile on my face; Picture saying “I do” to the man I love. He’ll adore me and think I’m great. We’ll live happily ever after In our rose-covered cottage by the sea. There’ll be plenty of money and we’ll never fight. That sounds good ...

    I shut my window to try to keep out the breeze, But it’s still drafty anyway. The boy I love, he acts like I’m not there, And I woke up with a cold today. My old best friend, she’s never around anymore, And I wish I had tried to save her. I sit in the kitchen; alone ‘cause no one’s h...

    Sometimes when I’m feeling sad I doubt I’ll ever be okay again. The bad side of things is all I see And I wrap myself in my own misery. But this has got to end. My heart is on the mend. I’m back on my feet Because I believe in me. The past is the past, So why would I bother to worry...

    Joy is not an easy thing To harbor in your heart. When despondency comes naturally, It’s difficult to start To see things in a better light; To know that people care. It’s easier to be alone And think nobody’s there. I know this from experience. It’s not hard to be sad. Depression ...

    The girl with the sharp eyes Sits in the back of the class. Her eyes, Deep blue like sapphires, Have a glint in them That could cut you. They’re razor eyes. They’re glassy icicles. They gleam under her expressive Arched brows, Unreadable. It’s impossible to know What she’s think...

    I’ll fill up your glass when you’ve finished off your drink. You draw in pencil, so I’ll seal if off with ink. There’s a spot on your glasses. Here, I’ll wipe it off. I’ll buy you Tylenol Cold whenever you get a cough. You’re not that far away But I still feel the distance. The ...

    I don’t try to be like anybody else. I know that I’m not perfect But I love being myself. I’m grounded and I’m logical But I’m up in the clouds. I’m confused and I’m a little lost, But I’m sensible and found. And it’s okay. Yeah, it’s all right. I’m a little bit gauc...

    The days go on and on. Before you know it, good things are gone. Life can be a bore; Always wishing for something more. Just look a little farther up ahead. Maybe it hasn’t shown up yet, but It’ll come, it’ll come, it’ll come. Maybe there are better days to come; A castle in the dist...

    Most people don’t give me a second thought. I’m just the quiet girl in the corner. But you’re not like that. You made me feel like I was something special. Other people look at me like a little kid, But you’re not like that. Now you’re gone. We said our goodbyes, And I’m sad beca...

    I’m not the girl That all the boys are chasing, But my heart I Am constantly misplacing; Holding onto guys who don’t notice me. I see you’re thinking. There are girls on every corner, And I wish you Could see me through my armor. Take an honest look, and I think you’ll see I thin...

    I told you that you hurt me when we had that fight. You insisted I was guilty and that you were right. I tried to be forgiving and take the blame, But you’ve done this countless times and I’m sick of the shame. Picking myself up to appease you, it’s an endless war, But I won’t let you h...

    Did it ever cross your mind That no one does the right thing all the time? It’s okay to fall on your face Because we all make mistakes. It’s all right. Admit you’re wrong. Thinking you’re perfect Doesn’t mean you’re strong. Don’t you know that we’re all flawed? Don’t be ...

    Little me, Only sixteen, At the beginning of July. Previously, You had been just some guy to me, But now I noticed how your eyes shined. You were the first boy Who ever made my stomach twist. I like to talk a lot, But in front of you I was speechless. The feeling was unusual, And I was ...

    Growing up can be exciting, But there’s an ugly side. Gotta say goodbye to Mom and Dad And go on with your life. Now leaving can be scary, But I have come to find It is so much worse to be The one who’s left behind. You’re packing your bags And you’re leaving, you’re leaving, ...

    Friends? No, that’s not what I’d call them. They’re mostly acquaintances; People I know but who ignore me. I’m surprised I was even invited To play Ultimate Frisbee with them today. They don’t care to get to know me. They don’t know anything about me. They don’t pass me the Fri...

    I put your picture under my pillow And dream of you as I’m in bed. Then I get up in the morning And I tear your face to shreds. One minute, I swear I can’t live without you And the next I wish you dead. That’s what happens when your heart is clashing With the logic in your head. One ...

    If you wanted to give me some assurance, If you wanted to call out, “Hey, by the way, Amanda, I like you, and I want to be with you,” That would be cool. But if that’s too hard for you, You don’t have to. Don’t worry about it. Really! I’ll be fine. Don’t worry about my sensit...

    I’ve learned the world is cruel sometimes; Faced many broken hearts. We both have problems of our own; We both have lots of scars. I know we tend to disagree, And I don’t like to fight, But sometimes that’s the only way To set a matter right. It’s hard to understand s...

    If I was Marco Polo, I wouldn’t trek across barren deserts Or hike up perilous, snow-capped mountains Just to discover exotic spices or beautiful silk, Because really, what does all that wealth mean, anyway? You know I’m bad with directions And I guarantee I’d be the kind of idiot Who...

    Mostly I write in secret. People know that I write, But they don’t know what I write about. I’m too afraid to share my poems with most people. All these sappy love poems . . . It’s a little embarrassing. Come on . . . An introverted girl who keeps to her room, Writing love poems late...

    Remember your garden, Behind the back fence, Down the hill, in the woods? We always trekked down there With bare feet, Scuffing up our tender skin On pebbles and roots and other debris. But we took that long route To your garden anyway. Remember the blueberry patch And your sprawling ...

    I like writing. And I don’t just tolerate it. I like writing a whole lot. I am a caffeine addict and I drink three cups of tea every day But as much as I like tea I would gladly give it up Before I would give up writing. I like writing in my diary at the end of a long day. I like writing po...

    I have a lot of trouble trying to put ice cube trays Away in the freezer after I fill them. The water always sloshes all over the place. Taking out the ice is much easier. Some people trudge through life with a smile on their face And not one complaint. That’s how I like to be. Why woul...

    When your footsteps echo in the hallway in the morning And you shuffle down to the kitchen to make me tea, I hear music. As I lie in bed, I can feel musical notes blowing in my window And rustling the curtains like wind. When you’re making dinner, cutting up sweet potatoes just for me Becau...

    Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary Would say that you are ‘One attached to me by affection or esteem’. You are much more than that. That sounds so formal. But a true friend, A lets-you-cry-on-the-phone, Picks-you-up-when-you-fall friend . . . There is nothing formal about that. ...
