Your Shoulder

Why do you love me
Im nothing but a beast
I scream and hit you
Telling you to go away
You just keep coming
Why dont you stay away
Please for my good
I cant stand you
Coming and telling me
I love you
To me
When Ace and I
Are together
Whats wrong with you
I should have told him
That you said that
To me
For some reason though
I didnt
Now look what happened
I can never tell him
What you said
Im sure he's figured it out
That you said that
Because I know
Hes watching over me
Making sure I dont
Do anything wrong
I must say thank you though
I had no shoulder
To cry on
Then you came
To my house
And asked me
If I needed
Someone to listen
Someone to help me
Get through it
I invited you in
You came in
We went into my bedroom
And sat down
We just sat there
Then came the tears
You pulled me closer
And hung onto me tight
Like you would never
Let go of me
I felt so safe
In your arms
It wasnt right though
I belonged to Ace
I could tell you felt me stiffen
For you had let me go
You stared at me
I stared at you
Then you say
I should leave
My voice is shaky
I ask him why
And he says
You love Ace, not me
I can't help you
If your not willing to let him go
He says his goodbye
And walks out
I wait until I hear
The front door shut
Then I cry
A new batch of tears
Of letting you go
Not trying to stop you
I shouldn't have let you in
So I could cry on my own
But I needed someone
So bad
To listen to me
When I saw you
The next day
I went up to you
And said I was sorry
You smile at me
And said it was no problem
We hung out
The rest of the day
Turning out to be best friends
You're always there
When I need someone
I know you still love me
But you do not say
You are pushing aside
All your feelings for me
But tonight thats going to change
Im going to have you tell me
What you think of me
And you will tell me
If you ask
If I want to date you
I will say yes
Because Im starting to have feelings
For you too
So thank you
For giving me
Your shoulder
To cry on

    very good poem. liked the good use of vocabulary in also impressed with the meaning of the message in it aswell. good job. i love it when people put their feelings into words because to me music or poetry is the best way to put them
