109 (who?)
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!

A mean and incredibly clever poem! I love this so much. The line "cannabis perfume" is wonderful.

I was reading your poem and at the end I was about to burst into tears, but then I read the end note and I burst out laughing at the "Still, the little punk" part.

Ahaha :lmao: well it's true, he's a little punk and I don't like him very much at all!

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.

Thank you very much! :D

Lol, I agree. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words leave psychological damage that never heals!
