"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on." - Robert Frost

When we first met,
I didn't even want to be friends.
You seemed like the weird type,
Or the douchey type.
I could have never guessed what you would really turn out to be.

We started talking more,
Then, finally, you asked for my number,
I was hesitant at first,
Not really wanting to,
But after a few days I gave in.

We texted for awhile,
Always had the best of times,
Never regretted a thing.

We later fell madly in love,
Everything was perfect,
I wouldn't have changed a thing.
Life like that forever,
Was a complete fantasy to me..

Then things started changing,
We both acted differently,
Not willing to listen to each other,
Not willing to talk to the other.

All I wanna know is why?
I thought we both said forever,
I thought we both could pull it through,
Listen calmly,
But now it's all up to you.

I'm willing to listen,
I'm willing to go back to how i was,
If you'd tell me what changed at least.
But I can't make you do a thing, so it's all up to you.

I want to go back,
I want to be the same,
Be in heaven again.
But it's all up to you.

All I can say is I love you,
I don't know if you feel the same.
But I do,
That's all I know,
That's all I will ever know.

Just, let's both take a second look,
Listen better,
And try.

-James Clavell, "Shogun"

In internet language, seems legit. :D I like how it really feels like your own experience, and it feels like exactly how you would tell it. Well done.

I cannot exactly explain how much I love this piece. It has all kinds of emotions rolled into one; it has the feeling that you know who you are. That feeling will bring you up, but, personally, I already think that you're one of the top that there are. Keep going strong, and you'll see how far you can go.

It's really good! I enjoyed reading it, and figuring out the true meaning of the poem, and what it meant to me personally. (= Great Job!
