this is just a poem about this girl i know who is... giving me a hard time for something i didnt do. i was really upset when i wrote this. i hope you like it.

What right does she have
To hurt me
To make cry
To haunt my sleep
To take the joys of the season
And turn them into a dark, perverse imitation
What right does she have
To falsely accuse me
To toy with my feelings
Because she’s bored
Because she can
To turn the world against me
What right does she have
To take my seemingly perfect life
And twist it beyond recognition
To shatter my confidence
With her smirks and sarcastic comments
To taint the pureness of my innocence
With the red of her deceit
She has that right
Because I give it to her
With every underserved sorry I utter
With every tear I shed
Because of her
With every begging look
I give her the ability
To ruin my life

she has that right because i give it to her. That part was a shock and a twist and i was not expecting it to do that. excellent work. Lines like that hook you. it was very good

this was really good. I've been in your shoes, I think... or somewhere near this. You really captured that feeling of despair and loneliness even though you know you shouldn't have to feel that way. I really like the lines 'To taint the pureness of my innocence/ With the red of her deceit". Good imagery

This is a great poem and very mature. I do think though that it isn't just that these people are given the right by the person they're bullying. There is more strength of character in getting through each new day with this hanging over your head. Age 18 you will have the strength and determination to have a wonderful life. And bullies well in the end they always meet someone bigger with more power and then they become victims. Great poem, very well written.
