Talk It Out?

by BECCA lessTHANthree   Jul 15, 2008

So this is what it's come to.
We're "used to be friends"...

I never would've guessed it,
But looking back maybe I should have;
Maybe I did.

...just never wanted to admit it, to confront it.
I wanted to avoid it.

But it had to bubble to the surface eventually, right?

I can't say I didn't try to fix it, this...

You; on the other hand,
Putting forward words of effort,
False attempts. It's sweet though.
At least you pretended to care.
If only you really did...

Talk it out? Let's!

Then shoot down every one of my attempts,
Walk away from every one of my words.
You call this talking it out?

Don't pity me, I don't need it.
Don't pretend you wan to fix things if you don't.
Don't waste your time and words on me,
Don't waste my time or breath...

If this is you fixing things, I'm gonna need a new handy-man.
And if this is you taking one step forward, I should have walked back sooner.
If this is you honestly caring, I expected way too much.
Because really, if this is you trying, I quit.

    Very well versed poem. It's actually what I'm going through right now.

    I hope that things have picked up since then. Good read, thank you very much.

    I'm sorry to say that this is more of a lecture, or a talk than a poem. I'll refe to it as a lecture.
    You pass down a strong message to the other character in the talk. He's not trying hard enough and you can't live this way.
    The words are carefully chosen and fit every argue or situation.

    I'll give it a 5/5 as a lecture, but sorry, this is not a poem.

    Wow, yeah. This was actually really good. I'm sure everyone has/had a friend like this. This is probably something everyone has to go through... especially in high school! That's where you find your true friends and your "fake friends". It sucks, but it happens, and you wrote a really good poem about it.

    I really liked this. It was so honest, and straight from the heart. It sucks when you think you know someone, and they turn out not being who you thought they were.

    "And if this is you fixing things, I'm gonna need a new handy-man."

    ^^ AH! I loved that. It's my favourite line in the whole poem.

    I thought it was a very good venting poem. I swear, sometimes the best poems are written when you just need to yell or scream or get mad about something. Haha. 5/5
