"I desire the things that will destroy me in the end."- Sylvia Plath

Words are powerful

I learned that when I was little

You have to be careful of what you say

Especially when you talk about your feelings


I promised myself that I would never lie

With using words

To describe my feelings

Because I learned that it hurts in the end


Even though I just met you

The words just always seemed right

They felt good to say to you

And I can’t tell if it is a lie


Maybe it is just another promise broken

Or maybe it isn’t

Maybe the words are true

And I just don’t want to admit the truth


The words always felt right with you

From the first day I met you

But these words

Are some of the most powerful ones


They describe a beautiful feeling

One that may never go away

One that might take time to feel

Or maybe it is just at first sight


Why these words feel right

Is an answer I may never get

But I will continue to tell you that

I love you

Hi my name is Kayla and I am 15 years old. I love poetry and love writing it. The poem is about how I made a promise to myself not to lie to someone else about my feelings and how I can’t tell if I broke it or not by telling someone that I love them.
