Procrastination rules the nation!

Let's run and play!
I'm upset, go away.
I'll always be yours!

You’re being a bore.


These are things we used to say,
And no matter what, it would be ok.


I'll slap you, but you can’t slap me.
I've got a secret. You wanna see?
I'm sorry we fought. I didn't mean what I said.
That's Ok! We're still friends til the end!


We used to get along so well,
But when did it become earthly hell?


How dare you show your face again!
But I thought we were still best friends.
We're through with friendship! Such childish things!
I ran crying, not seeing a thing.


I'll keep trying to get you to see,

That without you there is no me.


If nothing works, I have a plan.
A loaded gun in my hand,
Pressed to my head, ready to fire.
If you don't stop me, it will be good-bye forever.


You used to be my BFF,
But now you are the cause of my death.

Hey celia! Thanks for the comment!! I just wanted to let you know that luckily, this particular poem is not a reflection of my real life. It was actually my reaction to a friend's poem.

What a beautiful piece of writing. It made me remember a lot of things about some people who I am no longer friends with. I hope if this is s true story, things get/have gotten better
