    Tell me what you think, it's part of my coursework :p:

    Dedicated to a girl named Andzela. <3

    I look around me, see couples
    Falling out of love
    Breaking up
    Moving on
    That they don't care about each other

    What a lie- I know
    What's truly on their minds
    Let's be free, they think
    Let's not be us
    Just you and then
    There's me.

    Everyone wants to play
    Party- look away
    From how they really feel
    What they really want to say
    I know
    There are still "I love you"s
    Backed up, ready, bursting, shushed.

    I look around me and think
    Am I so wrong
    To want to stay
    With my lover for longer?
    To want to work hard
    And someday be together
    Her in my arms again- I will wait
    For her.
    Am I different?

    Is our love stronger?
    Are we stupid? Or rather,
    Are we smarter?
    Why give up something so great
    So beautiful, rare- fate
    Why throw it away?

    All relationships that end
    With a selfish need
    To be free- of "constraints"-
    Were meant to last, I think.
    But me, I hold hope
    I stand true to my woman,
    Stand by her
    Hand in hand
    Until someday, when we
    Will finally be sitting on our porch
    Watching the sunset- coffee mugs
    But filled with tea
    Laughing, talking, remembering the days
    When we chose to fight
    For each other- To stay together
    To Love only one another.
    Because I will stand true to my woman.
    I will take my chance with fate,
    I will show the world
    That you can be free
    Even when your heart belongs
    To a lover.


    Oh Lord no, not another poem about adolescence and sex
