“Reading without thinking is nothing, for a book is less important for what it says than for what it makes you think.”

Bring me home where I’m wanted
Love me and care for me again
Don’t leave my heart as you did before:
My eyes are filled with the daunting ghost of my unpleasant past
I am alone.
No one understands my despair, my heart races when you say goodbye
I sometimes feel confused;
You don’t notice the scars left behind when you wave your hands
You don’t know the pain I feel when you’re not by my side:
I want your warmth and comfort to be there for me
I wanted you’re your support–all I’d asked for;
You let me fall.
I never got back up.
Now I crawl on the floor, scraping my knees
Staying afloat in the bitterness of this world but reality hit me–
I follow you wherever you go, groveling at your feet,
I am fallen and still you have not reached out a helpful hand
I see you laughing in my face.
The betrayal of a friend, the manipulation of my soft heart
You hurt me crushed me beyond repair
You are cruel.

Some call you love.

i like this a lot.

i like how you emphasized words like 'torture' 'abandonment' 'misunderstood' by giving them their own lines.

and by the way: at least you can write depressing poetry. i know people who can only write happy poetry. hahahaha

great job keep it up

return the favor ? :)

Strong. I liked it, it touched my heart. I recently broke up with someone that meant a lot to me and this explains most of the feelings. Keep writing and I'll keep reading. ♥

You are right, that was kind of depressing. but i think it was beautiful all the same. i write depressing poetry too, because i suck at writing happy stuff, even though i'm happy :) your poem was wonderful though, i think . It was put together really well.
