Welcome to our newest edition of Shit I Wrote in High School. Lovingly named: Can’t We Stop Fighting? Yes. It’s another poem by 15 year old Alli. Again, you’re welcome.
“Can’t we just stop?
Stop this crazy sharade?
It’s gotten so ugly.
I can’t take it much more.
Our friendship is gone, its
gone down the toilet.
Why did you even bother to
purposely spoil it?
You know I wanna stop,
Stop fighting like this.
My life needs to be more,
I’m just gonna snap!
I can’t take much longer,
All this stupid fighting crap!
I can’t hold up this fight,
This battle is over,
Just put down the knife.”
Let’s talk about this for a minute, shall we? I wrote it out exactly as I had in the notebook I found, minus the fact that it was actually written haphazardly with a calligraphy pen. Yes. You read that right. A calligraphy pen. I thought I was bloody Shakespeare. Poor misunderstood precious-hearted little me. Besides the grammar that needed help (and probably still does) and the fact that I spelled ‘charade’ wrong, the thing that tickles me the most is that this poem not only badly rhymes, but I used the word ‘toilet’. And rhymed it with ‘spoil it’. Nailed it little duck, you nailed it.
It’s pretty obvious why I no longer invest my time in writing poems.
I love this so much I can’t even deal with it.
Send me your crappy writing (also loved that I used the word ‘crap’ in this.) at firstname.lastname@example.org so I’m not alone in this humiliating amazingness.

Lol I laughed out loud when I read toilet/spoil it, now I have to go look up the poetry I wrote in high school.
Haha here’s hoping it’s as magical as this one.
Oh man I had a calligraphy set in high school as well, specifically for angsty poetry lmao
Hahaha I use to write poems and lengthy letters to people on parchment, which was annoying because it would take forever to dry haha
