A crush. A poem for him, though I take precautions to make sure he’ll never see it. Is it because I’m scared? Well no, more scared of him actually

Truth isn’t skin deep like they say
Yet it seems to come every other way
The times you say it, and I break your heart
Because I knew it even from our start
Countless voices, whispering lies
Of love, loss, of wrenching tries
Our stories of past and your hope, much more
Still the price would be me, behind a locked door

Yeah! So actually a two years ago I was in an advanced reading class, and my teacher was obsessed with poems, so most of my knowledge was from there, but try this, the one I took isn’t available any more but here’s a link I’ve used- it has advice and some exercises to try:

Also, as much of my experience comes from that class, I found a site that teaches my personal favorite kind of poem- Iambic Tetrameters. Although I haven’t posted any on here I want to at some point- Iambic Tetrameters work by alternating the stressed syllable for 8 syllables. It’s kind of difficult to find words for, but it’s the best flowing kind. Here’s a link I found on that:

He’s not mean. I want to make sure that’s straight. He used to be a good kid but he’s been turning bad- to detentions, suspensions- and it’s honestly scary to see a friend (I friend zoned him when he asked me out, but now we still talk a lot i know he wants to be more than friends and idk) it’s hard to see a friend fall, and you can’t help them. It’s really tough. So please understand he’s not a bad guy yet, I’m afraid of any relationship because of what he might become
