The bad things happen first,then the good things, then more bad things, then more good things: God helps us through the bad things so we can enjoy the good ones. :)

Im sad
I dont know what to do
Im so confused
I wish I didnt regret the first day I met you
You are probably not aware of the confusion you cauuse
I hate you
No I dont
Im trying
Its not working
Can someone better than you, distract me please
I dont want to feel this pull in my stomach
These butterflies are fluttering
They are eating away at my hatred
I try to kill them
Pull them out
Tear them apart
Cut off their wings
Ill kill them
As your killing me
All is fair in this battlefield
Love and war
Love and hate
Love and lost
Losing you would be like losing a part of myself
But losing myself is worth losing you
Goodbyes are in order here
Hellos are for when you finally disappear
From within me
The butterflies stopped fluttering
Your gone

. I enjoy listening to deep and loud hard rock and love techno and alternative. Speaking as one of MANY girls who wear their hearts on their sleeves, I try to channel my feelings for a person in words, which turns into poems.

Beautifully sad & deep. I can relate really well to it to it. The style and the wording were great. I loved it! P.S. I'm one of those many girls with her heart on her sleeve too.<3 Let's stay strong =]

Change is just a new begining

How amazing that you can write something that a lot of girls can relate to. It is beautiful to feel understood and it is just as beautiful to know someone else has felt the exact same way. your poem was able to do just that. this was very good. Kudos.
