wat doesnt kill you only makes you stronger

and you scare me
you hold my interest.

and i will run
so you cant run first.

and you will break me
nothing was there to start.

and i will cry
because i'll realize it must be me. not them.

and i'll move on
because like the rest he never got close enough

this is so unique. i love how you put -why- and then answered the question. i like the repeated word it helped the poem flow nicely. i can relate to this poem and enjoyed reading it. check out my poems too :)
