This is something I really went through in my senior year in high school. It is sort of like the other side of the looking glass from that I see written on here. I became the bad guy to all her friends. Not one of my other girlfriends​ blamed me.

Heartbreak

by bernardtwindwil

Yeah it was me

I wanted to taste a big chunk of life​ At 17 I did not want a wife She held my hand, she kissed my lips She told me when she does her h​eart skips

I couldn't agree

Despite the feeling of egregious lust This was not a relationship I could trust She told me she lies awake and thinks of me To satisfy my sexual lust how easy could this be?

I feared entrapment

Her smooth skin and pretty face Was it worth the price of self-disgrace In class, she never took her eyes from me I was not overjoyed with glee

A clinging vine

Although her company was great at first For entangling vines, I did not thirst She demanded my 24/7 attention To escape her, I earned detention

Obsession or Possession​

Her professions of love and eternal possession ​ Without my kiss, she'd have depression She'd call me at all hours of night And not hang up until daylight​

Hostage to her needs

I started to get concerned and did not call Or I'd not show at her place at all She threatened all sort of self-harm​ Once she had even cut her arm.​

What to I get that remains me

She didn't know love from manipulation How could I have loved self-mutilation? This was changing from crush simple and sweet To a horror from which I wanted to retreat.

Sometimes it is greener

I pulled the plug and sought greener pastures I wasn't kidding this was not empty gesture This was nothing like love and more like a hi-jack Al​l I was doing was taking my life back

No! You're wrong.
This is what I have learned about you.

@reasonsofbeing @chr1smckn1ght Thank you for the complimentary comments. I have learned in life that a "life incident" can be disastrous for one party while the other party walks away with no consequences because we make our own consequences. I have been fortunate enough to be virtually born with a literary outlook on life. I think life can be as bad as you want it to be or as good as you want it to be. Although I do recognize that mental illness affects a person in ways they cannot control. You can be the center of your life without being selfish or narcissistic. Follow your dreams.

@bernardtwindwil Exactly. The worst things I've been through have all shaped me to be the person I am today, and that's why I don't have any regrets. And the best writing I've done and the most I've learned has always been from the bad, which in a way is a form of a blessing!

@reasonsofbeing I have discovered, somewhere along the way, that good can come out of any and everything. You just have to be willing to open your eyes to the goodness all around you.

@wethedreamers Thank you for reading and commenting. Relationships in adolescence​ end up being so cruel.

In the most complimentary way, this was uncomfortably brutal. Reminds me of what a dear friend of mine went through with in a relationship and all I could do was witness her horror. Fantastic poem.

@bernardtwindwil definitely have, heartbreak is a hell of a thing...he's inspired a lot of great writing though, so I guess some good came out of it!

"Obsession or possession" "All I was doing was taking my life back" I love these lines! This is great stuff! (:
