When life gives you lemons, make grape juice, then watch everyone wonder how you did it!

I tell you everything
Yet you know nothing
I can choose my words
But you never pry
You never will desert me
And yet you can betray me
I tell you my emotions
But you have none
I cry out to you verbally
But you don’t wrap me in your arms
And yet you are my friend
At the same time my enemy
My strength
And my weakness
No matter what
My dear diary

I really like this poem, especially the ending. The only word I'd get rid of or change is "verbally" besides that, great job!

Keep writing!

I loved it. A few tips, though: in the line "I cry out verbally" the word "verbally" can be removed, because it is redundant. If someone "cries out" it's going to be verbal. Also, the comparison "I can choose my words but you never pry" did not seem different enough to contrast. Perhaps change "I can choose my words" to something more "I can tell you everything." Anyway, good job!
