About the Poem

A couple of years ago, I went through a transitional period of my life. It was as if all of a sudden everything around me had fallen apart. I had been living in a sort of dream world where I though nothing could hurt me. Then something did.

I lost my bestest friends in the whole world, everyone who I though was there for me somehow betrayed me. It made me grow up more than I would have liked in the time span of a few months. I wrote this poem, because writing has always been a sort of escape for me.

I really really admired your piece of writing. it reminds me of my life right now. All my friends have betrayed me and constantly leave me hanging. My whole life i have been told by tons of people that they love me but then they have ALL hurt me in some way---in other words---my life has been built up of lies! Your poem really helped to express that. I am a poet as well and you have amazing talent. You have ALOT of potential to be one of the greatest writers there is. I love how your poem rhymed and had an easy flow. very fluent with words. overall, I absolutely loved it and I hope to read more of your writing.

This poem is great. I understand the writer since I have gone through this myself. After having a car hit me, I was hospitalized and my friends from school would visit me. As soon as I joined highschool though, they seemed to go away into their own little world since we attended different schools. I keep in touch with about half my friends but I never saw this coming. Starting at a new school, I had to look for new friends and it was hard on my freshmen year. Now I am happy to have the bestest friends that will never leave me behind.

End Of Innocence

Secrets, secrets
Lies, lies
She sits in her room,
and cries and cries.
There's no more trust
In this girl's heart.
She finally found out
That life isn't perfect.
She lived in dreams,
As children often do.
But she crawled out
Into the world everyone knew.
Things that once were.
Happiness once known;
The truth of it all
To her was shown.
Her little heart
Will never trust again.
She'll never know
A real true friend.
No more trust,
For no more lies.
She'll sit in her room
And cry and cry

THAT WAS DEEP! I UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT YOUR GOING THROUGH BECAUSE JUST LAST YEAR I LEARNED THE EXACT SAME THING ABOUT MY SO-CALLED FRIENDS. BUT JUST THINK, IF THEY WERE REALLY YOUR FRIENDS THEN, THEY WOULDN'T HAVE EVER HURT YOU IN THE FIRST PLACE, RIGHT?

Leisha

rubberduck
hello i liked your poem a lot. i also used to think that i cannot trust anyone anymore, but then i found that when i do not trust anyone life feels very lonely. "do i trust some and get fooled by phoniness or do i trust none and live in loneliness?" -by myself, linkin park. i thought that it is better to take the risk than to feel lonely and alone. so i think that maybe you should try to learn to trust others again, even though i know it will take sometime for you to heal. but it cetainly is better than being lonely. just make sure that you choose who youre going to trust carefully. someone who is worth the risk! :)
meg
wow. i really like this poem. i feel like it speaks for me and so many girls that i know. the end of my innocence came at the ripe young age of 12 when my twin brother betrayed my trust in a very deadly and harmful way (for him). and i know what you mean by poetry being an escape. i find it's always easier to write poetrywhen things are going wrong. it just lets you let go of those feelings in a nondestructive way. great job, and keep writing.
kayla

Courtney
Christina I thought your poem was beautiful, I loved it. This is my first time on this site, I write poems myself and a friend told me about this site. Your poem was lovely! Courtney
vannah
I really like this poem because this is the way i feel many of times.
Carneshia
reading this poem for me wasn't what i would say a thrill, no don't get me wrong i really liked it. i feel just like the girl in the poem . i too have gone through something that was like a punch in my face i thougtht that i had people that loved me but when i needed them it seemed as if everyone betrayed me. they say they will always be there but don't realize that i just want them to leave, they say they know when i'm sad but they can't possible know because i am always sad and if they knew they would know that when i needed them they would've been on my side insteade of on the opposite end of the river. well i just thought i would let you know your not the only one that feels that way and your a great poet
olwen
wow. this is good it really touched me becuase alot of people i have put all faith in ahve blown it up in my face, but what i found out which was lucky is that in mist of darkness there will ALWAYS be some one to take you back to the light, its just you have to find that person. but great poem, the structure and the way you used the words to hit people emotionaly is really very affective. well any way a very good poem
Kelli
Your poem was great you described emotions perfecty. I'm glad someone truly understands.
ROBIN
WOW THANK-YOU FOR WRITING THIS NOW I KNOW IM NOT THE ONLY ONE GOING THROUGH THIS.
Terry
I feel that this poem is extremely true. The emotions in this poem are just so real, and it's touching because most kids do cry when they find out there is more to life that the joy you get. I love this poem.
Terrence
Emotional, I feel the same sometimes. Every goes in and out of hell. Keep writing.

I felt as if this Poem was speaking for more then just the reasons Christina said above maybe not for herself but other girls out there. From loss of virginity(the hard way or just physically taken advantage of and lied to) to friends hurting you to realizing you had'nt been prepared for the world and were going to be forced to learn it all by yourself without the help your parents could have provided. This poem Speaks out for me too, and I am sure it speaks for alot of other girls out there as well. ~trying to figure out this life~
Jessica
I loved this poem i even saved it to my favorites on aol. I felt moved by this pom for it relates to my life.
lisa
this poem made me feel like you was talkin about me. my life has turned so many angles. i have been writting poetry for the longest time now, and they have all mostly been about the same idea. your poem was really good and i hope you get big in the poetry industry. i am sure it'll make people rely on it. i know it did me. good luck sweety!
Sam
WOW! I loved your poem and I can really relate when you say that writting has always been an escape, the only difference is that i find it difficualt to write when things arent going well. but i really enjoyed what you wrote it's great stuff!
vanessa
