I cant take this anymore


I wish that someone just knew
I wish that someone could just see
I wish that I didn’t have to keep lying
I wish that someone would just take the time to ask me


I can’t keep doing this anymore
I can’t keep putting this smile on my face
I can’t keep lying to myself and others
I can’t keep going this circling pace

I don’t want to go on like this
I don’t want my heart constantly torn in half
I don’t want to keep hurting
I don’t want to try to keep up a laugh

I won’t do this anymore
I won’t keep letting my insides rot
I won’t let people think it’s still ok
I won’t give them a chance to see that its not

I wish I didn’t have to do this anymore
I don’t want to do this anymore
I can’t keep doing this anymore
I won’t keep doing this anymore

I can’t take this anymore

    I'm impressed by the thinking that went into the structure of this poem, but I didn't think the structure helped the poem that much. Still, I do recommend its readind because it is worth getting through. Other poets might well learn from this.

    This poem appears as if You are 'P r o m i s i n g' yourself to bring a change in yourself
    and also you wish a change takes place in your life(circumstances) .
    Your urge is very vivid.
    You can write better, I know.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
