Green

by

Betta

The forest
A beautiful meadow
in springtime
The John Deere
the old farmer uses
out in the field
Nature
The country
A farm
My good friends eyes
A Chia Pet
until it dies
A fish tank
that needs cleaned
And Christmas Day
Anything
And
Everything
That grows
Green
Is
Life


You Are Gone

by

Betta

We talk
and we are honest
because
soon
you will be gone
We talk
and do not care
what anyone thinks
I need not worry
if you think
I am a freak
because
soon
you will be gone
I write
and I tell you
how I feel
for if you are mad
you simply won't
write back
We write
because
now
you are gone


You Can't Be Gone

by

Betta

You can't be gone
It couldn't be
You left, I know
But how I can't see
Your locker's here
Your music stand
The chair where you sat
When you were in band
Just last night
I found a note
A week ago's
When it was wrote
You've moved
You're gone
But it seems wrong
That you're so gone
But your memory lives on


I Call You Peter

by

Betta

I call you Peter
for you are my strength
You are there
to talk to
when no one else
cares
I call you Peter
you are my rock
You hold me up
when I'm feeling
down
I call you Peter
for you help
when my life
gets turned around
I call you Peter
I call you
Friend


Emotions

by

Betta

Emotions
so strong
yet you don't know how you feel
You've wanted this your whole life
so why do you feel so confused?
You want to tell him how you feel
but there aren't words for this
You cannot describe
Emotions
so complex
He wants to know what you're thinking
but then what?
What if he doesn't feel the same
and you ruin it, Forever?
But what scares you even more
is that he knows what you're thinking
And he still wants to hear it
So you know deep down
he must feel the same way
But maybe you're just dreaming
because you want it so much
because you love him.


Winter

by

Betta

Snowball fights
candlelight
sitting by the fire
The peaceful dove
the things you love
and all that you admire
Hot cocoa
mistletoe
sledding in the snow
Winter is a joyful time
anywhere you go


Hyper

by

Betta

Running around
making lots of sound
You're not gonna stop
until you go plop
You bounce off of walls
get kicked out of malls
Cause you drank too much jolt
enough to fill a moat
You totaled a Dodge Viper
Because you're too HYPER!

Changes They met in seventh grade
He was annoying
Immature
She thought he was the freak of the week
Then summertime
Changes
Now, mature eighth graders
They had grown
Friendships were no longer to become popular
They must be open and understanding
And always completely honest
Changes
He was not annoying
Just misunderstood
And he was her best friend's boyfriend
Until


Changes

by

Betta

When a best friend moves your whole world changes
Who to talk to
Who to care for
Who knows just how you feel
Who's been through the same kind of change
The boy knows and understands
They talk about how hard it is
How she understood them
And he understands
Slowly the conversation
Changes
They talk about life
Their hopes and dreams
They open up their hearts
He asks her out
And it changes
She can tell him how much she loves him
And that's okay
Or maybe not
He just wants to be friends
And her world comes crashing down
And all that they had
Changes


We Were Friends

by

Betta

we were friends
off limits
you loved my best friend
but she moved
and it didn't work out
she writes all the time
wants us to have a chance
why not
we're really not that different
love me

you waited
procrastinated
then listened to the voice
of the friend who gets her way
and you asked

I wanted it
too much to believe
it could be true
instinct was right
you don't love me as I do

a month and twelve days
was all it would last
why the hell don't you love me
you're being an ass

you lead me on
I open up
I tell you my thoughts
and you are indifferent

no emotions
no feelings
you don't care

you want to "just be friends"
you don't think yoou're ready for committment
then why did you ever commit

what did I do
why did you push me away
I want to know
what you're thinking today

how could you do this
why'd you do it to me
I love you so much
why can't you love me
