"Mending Hearts"

Poetry By: CanadianIdiot

I've come to realize that I cannot waste my time on love. There was a feeling inside of me lately that told me something wasn't right. Then I realized it. I was always the second "hello", the second in line, the second partner against others. And my feelings seemed to drop down to an almost depressed feeling.

And something else seemed to catch my eye. My schedule. It's jam packed and barely any time for any love related conditions. My friend Brody and I talked about this and he said he went through the same thing. He's in college now, and damn him if he doesn't do something awesome with his bass someday! He told me to stick with school and bass, because love isn't as important as those at my current age.

I now realize that friendship seems to be the only thing that can keep a bond together. I can't pay attention to love unless I can recieve it in return. I don't think I need it now. I honestly think that I don't.

So yes, I am now questioning myself about high school relationships. They only last for some weeks, right? And I doubt half of them are even serious. I don't want to be neither now. I just want to go through my years at my school without having to worry about love if at all possible. It's not worth it.

"Mending Hearts"

I've come to realize now,

That no matter what or how,

No matter what I try,

I'll have to let you go by.

You may not know it,

But I'm leaving you as I see it fit,

So you can be with him for the time,

And I can mend this heart of mine.

I won't be here anymore,

Just friends is enough to stop this sore,

It's bringing my mind down,

And I don't want to see you frown.

In time, if you are desperate enough,

Maybe, just maybe when times are tough,

I can have you,

And maybe we can start anew.

I want my life to be normal,

No wasting my attention on the non-formal,

Thinking about may seem fine,

But right now, I realize it isn't our timeā€¦
