Sometimes,
I have this sudden impulse to
bite off my tongue.
It wasn't made for
pretty words and kept promises
in the first place.

Back to back and
straight on til daybreak,
our soliloquy seems never ending.
You laugh,
I wince;
I whisper,
you interrogate.

When was the last time
you remembered to cry for all the broken hearts
that were not your own?
I really want to throw a brick at certain (friends') people's faces sometimes in order to knock some sense into them.

Trying really hard again to understand... and then bam. It just connected.

I can't stand people like that (no offence to... your friend?), mainly because I'm mostly the opposite. So I mean... nice jab.

It is in the talent of a great artist to current emotion through to the appreciator. It was really well written!

I go between wanting to go mother goose advice-y on you and just be supportive so I'll settle for both :heart: you're a wonderful person, don't let anyone in your life who makes you feel like this.

I don't usually feel intense emotions while reading things, but for some reason this poem gave me such a surge of feeling and it felt great. Wonderful job.

I don't think you need a brick, that last line had enough of an impact on its own.

I understand that feeling, and I will admit I laughed when I saw the brick comment.
