I tried - September 17th 2018, 08:41 PM

I tried
I really, really tried
I tried to understand
I tried to see
But know what?
There is only so much trying I can do before I give up.

You say you love me
You say you care
You say you're to blame
But know what?
You obviously don't think so.

So I'm going to sit here
And plaster a smile on my face
And hold my crown up high
And have fun

I will go to the dance with him
I will do what I want
I will dress to impress only myself
And I will learn to live with confidence

When the world drags you down, roll over and smell the roses.

Thank you for sharing this! I liked how you expressed the difficulty in the speaker's relationship to the person they're addressing. I can relate to feeling frustrated and strained in a relationship whether a friendship or otherwise.

I like the defiance in the last half compared to the first half!

I absolutely loved this! I also loved the defiance shown in the last half. It added a lot to the poem.

Dance is your pulse, your heartbeat, your breathing.
Itís the rhythm of your life. Itís the expression in time and movement,
in happiness, joy, sadness and envy.

I really liked this and especially that defiance the narrator conveyed in the second half of the poem. Keep writing!
