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

I finally told you my story

It might not have been everything

And I am sorry that it made you worry

As your tears began emptying

I hope now you understand

That this is just a lie

But you have to take my hand

I promise not to die

This is something I will not break

Because you mean too much to me

And I won’t make the mistake

Of setting myself free

But seeing you in tears

Only made me realize

That you never saw me clear

Even through your beautiful eyes

But it showed

How much you love me

And how much I owe

To you for never giving up on me

And I love you


And today I knew

That you love me too, forever

Hi my name is Kayla and I am 15 years old. I wrote this poem about me telling one of my closest friends of 10 years everything about me. The poem is about her reaction to it and how it made me realize how much she loves me. It also made me realize that she will always have my back and be there to support me. So this poem goes to her and how much I love her.
