"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the one who'll decide where you'll go." -Dr. Seuss

You’re running like crazy
Will you ever stop?
You’re making me sick.
Please slow down for once.

I can’t comprehend the things that you
Speak to me.
There aren't words in existence to describe
What you’re doing to me.

I try to breathe
But there isn’t room for that either.
I try to sleep
Yet I can’t do that neither.

You control me completely.
I hate you for doing so.
When you’re done taking over me
Let me know that I’m in control.

I really like this poem a lot. I'm guessing that it's about a relationship in which one has control. It's catchy as well, which makes it really good. I really love the line "When you're done taking over me lem know that I'm in control." Love It!!!

This was more up beat when I read it. Not necessarily the meaning or the story but the rhythm and the flow of words. Towards the end of the poem, last stanza, the rhythm changes . To me, it sounded a bit wobbly, it didn't smooth back out since it was the end of the poem. But it was still great, and I bet people could go on and on about how random and non rhythmical my poetry is, so I thought you should know! What I especially like about the way you write is that your wording is simple, and everyone can read and understand what you are saying. I like writing like that too.
