this is a poem i wrote for a girl a used to really like and she was messing up her life so i wrote this to give to her only i never did. im sorry if anyone reading this smokes or does drugs but im against it so dont be offended please

Why do you do this to me?
When I love you so?
Why do you not care?
Tell me to leave you alone?
Why won’t you stop taking
That **** called weed?
Why is it that my heart
You must mislead?
Why is it every night,
You sleep with another guy?
Why do you smoke?
I don’t want you to die!
Why is it that when I told you
You laughed at me?
And why is it
That I thought you liked me?
Why do I remember
Our drunken kiss?
Why did things
End up like this?

This is a really powerful poem. I liked it a lot because of the emotion that your words carry. Can't wait to read more of your writings!

is this based on true events, I am so sorry. I know, guys can be real pigs, I am a guy so this must sound funny coming from me, we're all pigs in nature, some just fight it more than others. I loved this poem, it really did nearly bring me to tears, I hate seeing a girl suffering like that, mistreated when she should be treasured and treated as a goddess, you all deserve better. And yeah, drugs and boose does have that effect on people, my mom's dad was an alcoholic and she could tell you how bad it was. I loved it, it made me cry but I loved it, can't wait for more.

This is REALLY good and REALLY sad. It made me cry thinking about how so many people have to go through all of that when they really shouldn't have to.
But this is REALLY good work. keep it up!
