Trying to decide what to do with you is killing me.
that's why I haven't said anything.
I haven't tried.
I love you.
I miss you.
But I just can't be with you.
I don't want to hurt you.
And I will.
[That's practically a promise.]
Just promise me you'll try not to hate me?
Even if I deserve it.
This is yet another somewhat angsty piece [in lack of better words...piece. Perhaps not poetry. I don't know. This is just my art] about relationships. Sorry for the Language, but if anyone out there is familiar with my posts they can probably tolerate my choices. I apologize for the cliches. Just felt like writing a little explanation. This whole bit seems a little "Grease" to me, which I have yet to decide whether is a good thing or a bad thing.

And it's written over everything I do.

It's been awhile.

You raise your messy eyebrows as the smoke curls from your lips.
"What are you looking at?" you say, jokingly as

"You, asshole," I murmur into your shirt. You laugh and shake your head and I allow myself to sneak a look up at you. You need a haircut and you look like you're about to collaspe, but in the end...

Not having any idea what to say isn't normally

I was silent.
Maybe you were wishing that I'd pull you into my arms
or whisper something
into your ear.
I'm not sure.
I can't read people I'm close to.
Which makes no sense, but this is all irrelevant.
He shouldn't have done that.
I know you're going to disagree,
but he is an asshole.
And although you disagree,
many others don't.
That's the difference between us.
You don't mind getting hurt.
it's just a part of loving.
I hardly ever allow myself to get close enough to even get hurt.
And then you go around saying that I'm the fearless one.
You've got no idea.
And that's what kills me.
You don't even know.

I hate seeing your potential go to waste.
All of us.

I hate that phrase.

With her eyes,

She understands this.
And she is right.
And I try to remember,

why dwell on the bad times?

that final bell rings
that last ride home

We are here
We are ready
for it to begin.
I just wanted to thank you for being my best friend.
For always listening
(even when i ramble),
always being there
(even when I'm lost),
and being my shoulder to cry on.
Remember that if you need me,
I'll always listen.

You've grown a lot.
Which is scary.
"So you're in love again," she had asked, smiling knowingly at me. I blushed.
(of course I did. I blush at everything.)
I didn't want to answer.
I didn't want to get hurt.
Not so soon.
"Um..." I murmur. She grins.
Something distracts her before I can answer, and my chance of denying dissolves.
But still, underneath my breath, I whisper a hasty "no".
Because I'm not.
I'm afraid, okay?
I'd like to say that this was our first encounter before we drifted, but
I'd be lying.
There was that time when you just walked in out of no where,
a huge smile on your face
and for the first time in a rough month
(and then of course I got involved with him.
Him with his persuasive brown eyes,
and crazy confident air
and open arms.
You had and lost your chance.
I walked away.)
And then there was that other time.
I was innocently just walking up the stairs,
turning a corner,
and there you were.
With your own large
(I swear I'm a sucker for the color...)
And your hurt but somehow still wondrous expression.
I almost stopped.
I almost said something.
But lets remember...
I'm not the loud girl that has evolved out of the
ashes of what once was.
(I am what once was.
What no one seems to think still exists.)
And I walked away.
I swear that I wasn't trying to catch you're eye.
I was just with her.
Walking towards you.
And you just happened to be with him.
That's just how my life works.)
Our eyes met again.
And sorry to be cliche
(But of course I am addressing the
But I got lost.
And this time, I was still.
It's crazy how just your teary-eyed voice
can make me,
I'll be here.
You can lean on me.
My arms are a motel,

And I'll be open long past midnight.
I know that you'd laugh if you ever read this.

I tend to fall or go off the deep end.
But at least now you're smiling.
It'll be okay.
He would want you to keep on
We love you.
I love you.
Everything's going to be okay.
it's not okay now,
but that's because it's not over.
In the end, everything will be right.
I'm sure of it.
So just hold on.
Toes in the sand watching the waves crash in. Your fingers entangled with mine. The salt and the sun and the summer in the sweet air.
listening to thunder on a lazy Sunday spring night. My head in your lap and my taste still in your mouth, of course.
the way that the wind tousles the big old maples in my backyard and the splattered white birches in yours.
But most of all,
we just are.

*Basically how I related to a song titled 'No Future' which was written by Craig Finn. I love this song, but I'm not going to use all of the lyrics to it. I'm not really sure what my idea was here but I just wanted to try it because I felt as though if I twisted the lyrics, they sort of applied to my situation. Hope anyone reading likes.*
By the way that you picked up the phone
I could tell that you weren't gonna die

It honestly lasted forever,
and your melting chocolate eyes and

and then the sweltering sun that apologized and kissed me dry

Trying hard not to get too obsessed with it
I guess I shouldn't've been surprised
I tried not to drown in you
(not your eyes this time,
or your words,
But of course I failed.
But I didn't show it.
I suppose you thought that I'd be shaken up
I suppose you thought I'd be gushing blood
Not true, I only died on the inside
I suppose you thought that I'd be taken out
Back behind one of those bars downtown
Not true, I'm still alive on the outside
You hurt me.
Of course you did.
I'm not dead yet.
(Which is apparently unfortunate in your eyes.)
Best advice that I've ever gotten was from good old Johnny Rotten
He said "God save the Queen"
He said "no future for you, no future for me"
And yes. There is no future for us.
I'm definitely no Queen.
And you are no god.
Although I do hope to be saved.
No future for you, no future for me
And it's spring time.

It's honestly like a breath of fresh air.
If only I wasn't being suffocated.
Clear your head.
And you know it.
So you should just go
and not worry about
and what's going to happen.
Or how bad the music's going to be
and how much that this crappy half ass music is going to
remind you of him
and make you miss him
in your body.
You need this.
So get over yourself and just
