"Smile little princess things get better" <3

Do i even mean anything to you?
You dont seem to care when im down and blue
But im always right there by your side
If love is an ocean, you are the tide
The tide that pulling me under
While the skies are all lightning and thunder
At least i cant see it, nor can i hear
Because i cant hear anything over waves and the fear
You think your saving me from the terror on land
But little do you know i only feel safe on the sand
For i cant swim, and youve know for long time
Oh wait- you dont care enough to keep that on your mind
Or to keep anything about me in your head
When it comes to loving you
Im better off dead.

I really like this poem, but there are a few grammatical mistakes. Other than that, great job!

everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. the worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. [sylvia plath]

love the imagery! found the poem flowed easier with the shorter lines rather than the ones with 14+ syllables.
