"Jealousy is a tiger that tears not only its prey but also its own raging heart."

I've finally forgot about it. Forgot about you. Your person. The things you did to me. So why are you crawling back now? Why now? I know my spurns and scorns are rude and cruel, but there's no way I'm going back to those cataclysms you caused. I'm fine now. I'm strong. I have my friends. It may not seem fair to you--but how can you really say that? I gave you your chances; you blew them. Not me. So when I ignore your existence and your phone calls and the voice on my shoulder that says "just talk to him" just know it's for me. It's not because I didn't forgive you. I forgave you a long time ago. Now it's time to forget. And I just can't do that by letting you back in. I just can't. I have to let it all go and move on to bigger things...

It's just what I have to do.

I realize these aren't poems. I posted them before I really knew how to use teenink so it's just where I put my "random thoughts." Thanks for the comments though..

that was really good, but just put some rhyme to it and in a stanza too to make it look more like a poem not a paragraph

It's got a good idea behind it; but in my opinion it wasn't very poetic.

This is certainly one of my favorites: "I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes." -2 Samuel 6:22

Very nice job. Can't say I can relate... But reading this described enough emotion that I almost could. I loved it. Keep writing.

God bless,

That was really great. I have pretty much had that happen to me. Basically. This was really good, and was easy too relate to. I like it :D
