You know after talking to you

Just sometimes, I think about dying
Not like, I’m sick of my life dying
If I died tomorrow
I would tell you everything
How I love that you pretend not to care
But you care so much
Or how I hate
When you take hours to reply
Or when you don’t text at all
How your always right
But most of all I’m pretty sure I hate
That I really don’t hate you
Not even a little
In fact, it’s quite the opposite
You always make me smile
Even when I don’t wanna
Always answer my calls
when you don’t necessarily want to
You always
Make me find myself
And slow down a little
I just don’t know
You make me feel like me
So yeah
If you asked
I do not want to die tomorrow
But just so you know
What you really mean to me

    I really enjoyed your poem. I found it really easy to connect to because I think most people have experienced something or someone like this in their lives. You did a masterful job at bringing all of your emotions together in a poem, and I think that you should continue to write poetry.

    I really enjoyed your poem, there were a lot of parts that I could relate to. Your poem was very deep yet compelling, there were some very crucial subjects that most people won’t talk about that I thought you talked about very well. Overall, I enjoyed your poem 🙂

    Great poem! I think many teenagers can relate. It reminded me of the movie Ten Things I Hate About You.

    I really like this poem, I can relate to it which is a very important thing that makes writing good. You use good description that helps the reader imagine two people that love each other. Feelings of love are very powerful, and you channel them well. Great job, I liked this poem and the impact it had.

    Hey Ajonea,
    I really liked this poem, the line breaks add significance to each line and I especially enjoyed how you tied the ending back to the beginning.

    This poem is really deep; I really liked it. I also like how you came in complete circle by going back to saying something about dying. This also reminded me of that movie, Ten Things I Hate About You, when the main character was saying something similar. Great job!

    I thought your poem was really well written, I felt a lot of meaning behind it. You addressed things that aren’t always talked about, but you know it was happening, like ‘When you take hours to reply’ and the pretending not to care, which was very nicely worded. Those are little things that can show love and start fights, they hold a lot of emotion. I do think you could’ve made the ending flow a little better but overall I think you did a very nice job with this poem. You have a great voice, and I would love to see more of your work!

    very good poem. I like how you made the poem fits with problems a lot of people have today like people not responding to the texts

    I really like your poem. You are connecting it to your personal life which will help you write more poems. I like the way you worded your poem.
