" 'I am happy' that's just the saddest lie..."

"I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence. Fear is such a weak emotion, that's why I despise it..."

My heart's not a game.
It's not something you can play with, with no shame.
You can't say you like me one minute and change your mind the next,
The more you do so, the more I become vexed.
You love me;
Then you could care less.
You want me;
Now you're making me guess.
Why do you feel like you can play with my emotions?
Your mood swings are really starting to feel like an ocean.
One second they're calm; The next, they're not.
Let me know if I should move on; This is your last shot.
If you want me, say it now.
And if you don't, then take a bow.
You may move on with your life and so shall I,
Just let me know, should I prepare for 'goodbye'?
If not, then why are you playing around?
Your mood swings are overcoming me, I'm starting to drown.
Make up your mind! The clock is ticking.
You're deciding now. No more of your tricking.
The answer is a simple 'yes' or 'no'
Tell me now, shall I introduce you as my beau? Or as my foe?
Because you may no longer have the best of the two,
Deciding time is now, which title is right for you?

Inspired by that boy that played with my heart for the longest time; he finally chose his title.

Wow :o You can really tell that this guy played with your emotions. If he made you feel like he love you one second, and the next like he didn't care, he obviously wasn't the right guy for you. Despite what some girls may think, there ARE a few good guy left =) I hope you find one that doesn't mess with you emotionally. I love the poem<3

The picture that you chose kind of makes me wonder which title the boy (that this poem is directed at) chose :o

Loved the entire poem, every line was great nd there was no dull part :D you can really sense how annoyed the narrator is. Awesome job.!
