if you want to give someone the silent treatment,
the first step is shutting up.

things made much more sense
when I was younger.
I thought there was one path,
each choice a stepping stone upon it.
in reality there are a million roads
intertwined like rope.

I got lost

I chose you.

promises are easily broken.
I knew that,
but it still hurt
spending friday night
shivering in the rain,
choking on cannabis perfume
in a dirt parking lot
your face never graced.

and I hoped against hope
you might appear,
but I wasted my wishing
on ungrateful you.

aborted love,
you died before taking your first breath.

I took a chance
and I should've known better.
you can give somebody all you have
and nothing can stop them from
throwing it away.

you've made this bed,
now lie in it.
you slit this suture,
you're the goddamn reason
I gave up on the month of april,
and soon enough you'll fall on your own blade
like some drunken samurai.

if you want to give someone the silent treatment,
speak with no tongue.
I beg you,
just be honest for once
and tell me
you don't love me.
HELLO MY FAITHFUL FRIENDS! It's officially spring break! Woot! I think everything's finally settling down with me. I'll probably be on more often now. :heart: I finally got to respond to everyone and I feel much better about that now. 

In the meantime, this poem is probably the single most personal thing I've ever posted here. Le story: I wanted to go on a date with this guy to an open mic night and he kind of led me to believe he wanted to hang out with me, but he never gave a direct answer and then never showed up. So. That was just wonderful. On the upside, though, my friend was there and we hung out and the event was really fun and we got slushies and hung out and we might be performing at the next one. Honestly, I'm glad he didn't come because it was a lot more fun with my friends. And they now insist that he's a jerk/gay for not going with me.

I love my friends. :heart::tighthug:

Still, the little punk hurt my feelings, so he gets a mean poem. 

Bye for now!

Bare and thoughtful, with powerful imagery; I like it!

That description, "Still, the little punk hurt my feelings, so he gets a mean poem." For some reason, this made me laugh. The best way to fight back! Poetry, not distasteful e-mails! I approve of your friends, too~

By the way, that wasn't sarcasm.

I got lost and somehow I chose you.

Wow, I wrote exactly the same words. Maybe some emotions span the globe. [… ]

Whoa, talk about a weird coincidence. I like your poem, by the way!

Oh my gosh! Are you okay? It sounds like you just got your heart broken

Oh, I'm fine! This was a long while ago, and I was quite pissed for a while, but it's all good now :aww:

Okay, that's great to hear. You just sounded really sad

This is such an intense poem and your emotions could be felt through the poem. I'm really that you had to experience that and I agree with your friends that he's a total douche for doing that, but it's still a great poem! Pain equals good poetry?

Ah, thank you, thank you! Yep, he's an asshole, but it's all over with now. And I got a poem out of the deal! :lmao:

The title speaks to me somehow. There's one letter I've ever wanted to burn... well, it involves a jerk as well, but there's where the similarities end ;) nice work!

Ah, I see. Sorry to hear that... :( At least bad experiences make for good literature. Thank you! :hug:
