When I was 5 my mother told me the key to life is happiness. My teacher asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. She said I didn't understand the assignment. I told her she didn't understand life.

When you say I love you,
Is it out of habit?
Or do you really mean it?
When you look me in the eyes,
And say your fine,
Are you lying?
Are you hiding the truth,
Behind your eyes?
If I let you open up to me,
Why not return the favor?

When we fight,
Does it kill you inside?
When we hold hands,
Do you get butterflies?
All the hugs and kisses,
Did they mean a thing?
Or was it just an act.

Do you care that I left?
Or was I just another girl?
Do you care that I gave up?
Or was I just something stupid?
Do you think you'll get me back?
You won't.
I gave up.
I got over you.
Have you?

This poem is about a guy I fell so bad for. I liked him a lot. But we are done now.

...one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love....I love...I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on. -Mr. Darcy

I liked this poem - I really like the tone of the last five lines.  It's kind of mocking/rebellious - love it!  Great job :)

When you say I love you,
Is it out of habit?
