When will I learn, to start living for me?
How do I become all that I've ever wanted to be?
Where will I finally, draw that line,
and stop pretending that everything's just fine?
Why is it so hard letting go?
To accept your just somebody, that I used to know.
I got too lost, I forgot to love myself.
Now I'm living, half alive in this hell.
This isn't my destiny, this tiny barless cell.
If you ever cared at all, it's very hard to tell. 
Anytime I try to talk to you, you only shut down or yell.
Now I have to choose to put me first,
No matter how much it will hurt.
All the while I've done all I know how to do,
You've been too busy doing you. 
I guess what I've always heard is true,
You cant keep loving someone who doesn't love you.

Fantastic idea in a poem. Reflect so much truth of cooling relationship. Enjoyed it.

I really love this, I feel like you have a very similar writing style to mines. It’a nice to see someone who writes and feels similarly in life. Check out my poems maybe when you have the chance and let me know what you think :).

Deep, Amanda. A powerful write about an all important milestone. It's uphill from there. Bravo.

You have to love yourself Amanda, don't give your heart to people who don't value it, the last line of your poem says it all...well done to you.

Really nicely done Amanda. Yes, we do need to live for ourselves, because once we do everything else comes easily, though love is always a hard thing to deal with when the other doesn't feel the same. Loving yourself first is important.
