Much Too Late

by Hollymariee

Tell me lies and call me names
When you need I'm here to blame
Ignore me during my times of need
Live your life the way you please
Drink until you cannot stand
Refuse to let me hold your hand
When I need you, don't be there
Just act as if you do not care
Make those promises you cannot keep
Hide those secrets that haunt my sleep
Sneak around and "forget" to call
Cut me down and watch me fall
Make us seem like a big mistake
But there's only so much a girl can take
You never thought I was good enough
You sure miss me now; But that's just tough
Before you did the things above
Should've known your life without my love
Now you'll spend your life trying to find
Everything that you've left behind
For once boy, you'll cry real tears
While you reminisce on the past two years
But it's much too late to make things okay
Because it's in his arms I want to stay <3

It was an excellent poem. But I think it would be better if you put it into stanzas. Well, maybe its just me but I don't like 1 stanza poems.

Because it's in his arms I want to stay
^ Put this in it's own stanza. In my opinion it adds impact to the readers.

Anyway I think it flowed very well. I'm guessing that you wrote this with your heart. Good job. I love poems that are written from the heart. Because in my opinion (poems that are written from the heart are always the best.)

I liked this. It reminds me of some of my older work. Very simple, but the emotions are still powerful and clear. I liked the easy flow of things, makes it easier to read and relate to. You have a gift for reading sweet poems like this. Keep it up. Shanik
