Teenage Heartbreak

PROMPT: My December Writing Competition 2018

I thought it was a good day,
I seemed pretty bright.
Everything was going my way,
Until came the night.
I went to go see him,
Though he didn’t want to be seen.
The sun was starting to dim,
I had to remember “a teen will be a teen.”
I asked him how he felt,
It’s like he didn’t want to say.
Suddenly I felt my heart start to melt,
Yet I decided to stay.
He told me he doesn’t...

PROMPT: My December Writing Competition 2018

Plenty of people struggle,
It’s not like they plan to.
With a lot of things to juggle,
It makes them feel blue.

I’m always worried,
Though I try not to be.
It’s usually because I’m hurried,
It makes me want to flee.

People give me advice,
I usually just ignore.
I’m aware it isn’t nice,
I just don’t want any more.

I try to help myself,
Yet I still feel empty.
I’m that dusty book on a shelf,
Feeling lonely...

You tell me you’re trying to be neutral,
When the guy being rude isn’t truthful.
I did nothing but ask a favor,
But instead you called me a traitor.
I don’t know what to do,
At this point I’m just trying to get through.
Come on let’s be real,
You don’t care how I feel.
I feel dumb for going to you,
When everything I said was true.
Why would you protect someone who lied,
When all he wanted was...

People told me to try meditation,
So I did without hesitation.
Too much running through my head,
It makes me want to stay in bed.

Sometimes I write letters,
To make myself feel better.
It’s hard putting emotions into words,
So mine aren’t typically heard.

Sometimes I get writer’s block,
So I just stare at the clock.
I wait for ideas to flow,
“On your mark, get set, go.”

Words can be hard to speak,
Especially if they’re bleak.

PROMPT: My December Writing Competition 2018

When someone close to me dies,
Time really flies.
Death is very sad,
But not always bad.
The people who were close aren’t suffering,
Though my brain continues shuffling.
I miss them so much,
I wish I could just feel their touch.
I never got to say goodbye,
At least they’re flying high.
I only hope to see them again someday,
Until then I’ll continue to pray.
Those people will always be in my heart,
And especially art.
I feel...
