"Forget What I Want"

I can't write you off that easy
It's harder than you'd think it would be.
Because you're all that mattered for the longest time
All I thought that mattered to me
Now you want to take a break
Take back all the things you said
I know you'll say, " It's not in my heart,
It's only in my head."
You think it's simple to move on
I think you're numb from the pain
I don't want to have to say goodbye
I don't want it to be this way
But maybe we should forget what I want
I'd never matter too
I'm tired of hurting all the time
When all I want is you
Don't tell me this is goodbye
I just want to see you again
Fuck trying to try
Maybe you never wanted me anyway
You could never understand
How much I'm hurting from what you said.
" We're to young to be in love,"-
Lets throw away all we had
Maybe you should open your heart
And tell me how you feel
I don't want to feel I'm the only one
That my heart's the only one to kill
You probably never cared at all
You'll never feel the way I do
Trying to be happy is hard sometimes
When the only thing that makes me happy is you

nice poem
It's a nice poem. I've read four or five of yours. Keep writing.

In case people haven't noticed, a couple of my songs are about relationship problems, namely the fallout of a bad relationship. And i can truly understand- or at least relate- to many of the things you said. Putting all of your effort into something just to hear the other person say it's not worth it.

All i can say is don't let it get to you too much. It's just not worth it. The only good thing that came out of all of the suffering and pain i put myself through was a couple songs.

most of the stuff i have written about is break-up related. that's how i deal with things is writing about it. this poem is actually a song now, just shortened, and it gives me my piece of revenge to have an ex bf come to a show and think it's about him. lol

Shortly after i started getting along with one of my ex's again, i had to perform "Blown" for her, a song that i made blaintantly obvious that it was written about her. I only named it Blown instead of Michelle because i figured "Blown" would be a nice inside joke. (We broke up because she gave another guy a blow-job in the middle of a school play in the high school hallway. We had a lot of plays by region actors in the local high school.)

Anyway, it can be great revenge, just don't get too wrapped up in it. I let it eat at me for far too long.

i'll play my songs, and an ex will show up and leave completely pissed off at me. i can't help it, and they won't believe me when i tell them the song is about someone else.

i normally go out of my way to not make my ex boyfriends upset, but one time i did it on purpose.
i have this song called "shithead" that i wrote, and i played when i saw my boyfriend kiss another girl. he apologized, basically saying "i didn't know you were here".
we were going out, so i couldn't consider him my ex until then. lol.

oh well, i feel like a bitch now. i'm one of those chicks who catches her boyfriend cheating and then tells him that she likes girls now because of him. lol.

i liked it
You comment (on some of my works) and write a lot so I'd like to return the favour. I enjoyed it from the beginning. I'm sure so many people have paralleled experiences that it can be comforting to read a piece like this and be able to say 'ah yes I know this.' In some people we make our homes in those emotions while others take them for granted. In this form they are very much appreciated and that's what is important to me at least for this piece. I enjoyed reading it and please keep writing.
