A Part of Me

This is a place to publish all my poetry that I've written since junior high school. The ones I wrote first will post first and you probably will be able to tell a teenager wrote them. HA. But as they progress I hope they became more insightful and even inspired. Some have definite themes to the writing style, flow, or continuity that I hope people will catch onto.

Why can’t I just get over you?
It hard but you always hurt me.

I remember how things used to be.
And what can be becomes my fantasy.

It’s stupid, I know, to keep going back.
But I can’t stop the way I feel.

It’s wrong to keep coming back for more
When your love’s not real.

I always told you “I loved you so much”.
Then I realized that was in the past tense.

Why did I keep hanging on?
It really doesn’t make much sense.

I’ve had a long time to get over you.
To tell the truth, I haven’t gotten that far yet.

But I’ve got too many hopes and dreams to fulfill
To be you’re reliable pet.
