I'm 14 and in love. I wrote this poem for a friend but realized how much of what I had said was about how I felt for the same guy as her.

This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Teenage Love Poems

A Heart
A heart is not a play thing
A heart is not a toy
But if you want it broken,
Just give it to a boy.

Boys never give their hearts
They play you for a fool
They wait until you give your heart
And then they play it cool

You think that when he whispers
That special someone is you
In his heart he means it
And every word is true

But you had better think
Don't believe his words just yet
For if you do my dearest
Heartbreaks all you'll get.

Don't ever fall in love my friend
You see it doesn't pay
Love it causes broken hearts
It happens every day

Love is beautiful, but it can hurt, it's true.
You'll think you're dying before its through
I can tell you all of this I know
Because I fell for the same guy as you!

    The night is young. Don't give up on your dreams of finding that special someone who can work for you, so you don't have to. Oh cool I just rhymed. I'm a poet too. Well there I go again blabbering on about how I could be something. I just need to find that man so I don't have to worry about it. Do you think I can? YES RHYME NUMBER 2! GO ME GO ME. Oh and don't forget to fly high into the blueberry sky. Bloodwake the hospitable signing off.

    I think its a great poem, although, not every guy is like that. Granted, most of them are, but i mean, im a femminist, and i know that i could never hurt someone i loved. My girlfriend and love each other, and i would never ever hurt her.

    Hey i realy understand every word you have said in this poem because me and this guy had been dating for a very long time since i was 12 and i am now 15 and we have broke up and went back out so many times that i have lost count but i am pretty sure it is almost 50. but we have recently broke up and he is seeing other people but we still talk on the phone and it hurts me so bad because he talks about them in front of me and i try and i try not to let him think that it dont hurt me but the other day i lost it and we stoped talking for a little while. but now we are talking again i need help getting over him but i just cant. but yes to some it all up love is stupid as hell! please everyone that has not fallin in love dont because it will hurt you each and every day of your life until you find someone else and then it will happen again and again but you just have to live through it day by day. thanx for listening every one love always katrina:(
