they are so hopeless, helpless,

swept in a wave of blind emotion

an emotion that leaves them breathless

drowning them in an ocean

 

a feeling that's never enough

that's been felt since preschool

they call it love

i call them fools

 

they stress over what to get their significant other

when the gift they give really shouldn't matter

they giggle about asking out their crush

but refuse to even look at them after the rush

 

why is this love?

it's all on the surface

don't worry if it's not enough

you shouldn't feel like a burden

 

because love isn't a reservation for a crowded restaurant

love isn't running towards each other at an airport

love isn't constantly worrying about breaking up

love is being there for each other, and that being enough

 

 

after like 4 months of no creative energy, ya girl's back and she wrote 2 poems in a random burst of motivation and creativity! this is the first one. it ain't perfect, it still feels a bit off to me, but it'll do until i remake it in 6 months to be better. this is based off valentine's day and what a lie "love" is bc love shouldn't be this thing where you go bankrupt for your SO.

people come into our lives for a reason

bringing something we must learn

we are led to those who help us most to grow

we help them in return

i don't know if i believe that's true

but i know i'm who i am today

because i knew you

feedback would be appreciated

I like this a lot. Excellent poetry, and an excellent breakdown of everything wrong with Valentine's Day.
