|Conflict Take Me or Leave Me
Author: The1DarkMarbleEyes PM
4/24/12 - This poem has a weird flow to it. It's not the typical a, b, c, b meter, and it changes to a more traditional format in the middle, so I'm going to put labels on here. Hopefully you can figure out the flow while reading it. It may seem darker at some points, but it was all written with a feeling of reflection, not sadness.Rated: Fiction K+ - English - Angst/Romance - Words: 371 - Published: 10-02-12 - Status: Complete - id: 3062540

b)I want you, and if you want me, we can have the world.
I want you, and no one else,
But I cannot sacrifice myself.
If I had to, I could live without you,
I don't want to, but I can't come back from repeating
what I've already been through.
You aren't like that, from what I've seen.
I love that you respect how I am from where I've been.
Do you see what you're doing?
I can't help falling.
c)But I'm falling for a you that respects.
If that isn't who you are,
c)I have to find what I should expect.

I don't know how to act sometimes.

Life has proven that people lie.

I feel beautiful to myself, so I need no approval.
g)It's just nice to feel beautiful with someone who is mine.
Maybe you can teach me.
h)Maybe you cannot.
If you don't want all of me,
h)I'll have to move on.
I want to share my world with you.
I honestly do.
I'll give you the chances you deserve,
But if you really want me, I want proof.
I've said all that I can say,
And this is all I can do.
