Just To Let You Know

I know you don’t see,
But I want to let you know,
Without letting you know,
That you’re hurting my feelings.
You’re hurting me.

Sure, I make mistakes.
Sure, you’re my best friend,
But you’re not my only friend.

It’s unfair the way you treat me,
And I’m too kind to do anything about it.
And you’re too selfish to care.
It’s like even with what I’m getting
I’m still better off than you.
Which isn’t true.

I’m just letting you know
Without letting you know,
That you should stop.
Your cruelty just breaks me.

Thank God I have reliable people.
People that I can turn to when I’m down.
People that love me.
People that I love.

Me… and You.

This is no confession
This is a declaration of friendship
This is about me and you
This is for me and you
This is by me… for you.

I’ve just met you
I barely know you
But I feel as though this…
This thing between us
Was meant to be
I want to know you more
I want to know more about you
And in exchange you can learn more about me
I’ll start now.

I love to sing,
I enjoy writing poetry
I tend to get depressed when there are people that I know
And we haven’t chatted in days…
But I’m getting over it
I can make exceptions
For people like you
Because I know (barely) what your lifestyle is like
I know you like to disappear
And that’s fine
As long as you leave a message
(That worries me :<)

I want to see you
I want you to see me
So we can see each other
And just…
See each other

This is all new to me
This is all confusing to me
This is all new…
And confusing

I hope…
I can understand these feelings
Never before have I felt this way
Felt this feeling
But it’s not a scary feeling
I like the feeling
It’s a feeling I’d like to learn more about
A curious feeling
I was told it was a developing crush…

Well I’ll be bold
And say…
Let that crush develop
I’m not talking about love
Since I’ve no idea what it is
But…
I don’t even know

Let’s just take it slow?
Let’s get to know each other
Cam with me
I’ll cam with you
Smile for me
I’ll smile for you
Laugh with me
I’ll laugh with you
Know me
I’ll know you
Listen to me
I’ll sing for you
Blush for me
I’ll giggle for you
Be there for me
And I’ll always depend on you.

This is no confession
This is a declaration of friendship
This is about me and you
This is for me and you
This is by me… for you.

Goodbye

This is not a goodbye,
But a see you soon.
Not even an “I miss you”
Even if I do.
It’s just a reminder,
That I’ll be here waiting for you.
I’m sure that there will be others
Who will miss your presence as well,
But not as much as me… I guess.
Who else will give you waffle hearts?
Who else will sing for you?
Who else will call you ‘teddy bear’?
Just like I do.
So come back for sure.
I won’t forget you at all.
Even if I don’t have your number,
Even if I can’t call,
It may be too expensive to text,
And Facebook would be my next bet
In terms of communicating with you.
Take lots of pictures;
I want to see them all.
Take videos as well;
Maybe I’d be enthralled.
It’s just this one thing I ask of you;
Don’t forget me,
I won’t forget you.
And remember,
This is not a goodbye,
But a see you soon.

The Visitor

Sometimes I feel like I don’t live here…
Like I wasn’t born here,
Like I don’t belong,
Like I’m just passing through.
You drown me out,
So I isolate myself.
Sadly enough,
I’m unable to learn…
More like I can’t.
You come out of nowhere
With your bold attitude-
It just frets me.
You.
I dislike you
For making me feel this way
Like I don’t belong here,
Like I’m just a visitor.

There is a name that exists, a name uncommon,
A name entitled to me.
Powerful and complete, good intellectually,
Is what the name Adiola means.

A person who is bold, a person who is independent,
Not a builder but a planner:
A person who is inquisitive, a person who is responsible,
And most importantly a thinker.

The origin unknown, a mystery to behold,
The rareness of my name.
The uniqueness of it all, the fact that it exists even now,
A word I’m glad to attain.

My name is my name; your name is yours,
Do not try to compare.
Adiola is special, Adiola is unique,
To test it will not be fair… for you.

How I got the name Adiola is interesting enough,
I guess I’d have to thank my dad,
To hate this name, this unique word,
Would mean something bad.

It’s like….
I am Adiola, and Adiola is me,
I don’t know how to explain:
To put my feelings into words,
And foreign… so it seems.

To me,
My name represents nothing,
For I am nothing,
And nothing is something indeed
And I have not at yet
Achieved that title,
That an “everything” is blessed to achieve.

Adiola…. Powerful and complete is like pen to paper
Such strokes saying a lot.
The pen holds her power, the paper her goal
That blank sheet to fill up.

My everything is The “Everything”
The rock on which I stand,
My comforter, my strength,
The one there when I’m down.

Who am I you ask?
I’m just a simple girl…
A lonely girl…
In this cruel world,
Just trying to persevere,
Just trying to live
Day by day
Doing the best that I can.

Ah (A): Open wide, take in all that I have to say.
Dee (Di): Decide if I’m worth it, because I already ruled you out.
Oh (O): Okay? Yes? No? What’s your choice?
LA (La): Late are you? You need to redeem yourself now.

Did you read it right?
ADIOLA:
Open wide, take in all that I have to say.
Decide if I’m worth it, because I already ruled you out.
Okay? Yes? No? What’s your choice?
Late are you? You need to redeem yourself now.

Think about it.
Think hard and long,
And when you get that answer,
And you find me long gone,
You’ll know you missed your chance,
You blew it.
Goodbye.

In the name poem, reference was made to another poem I had written.

To me,
My name represents nothing,
For I am nothing,
And nothing is something indeed
And I have not at yet
Achieved that title,
That an “everything” is blessed to achieve.

The above stanza is in reference to my poem, Nothing, Something and Everything

Why?

Why do you do this to me?
You know my weakness…
and you abuse it.
You come to me
with your fake smiles
and sad faces,
and I fall for it.
Like a fool.
And then I feel horrible after.
I told the first person “No”.
I told the second person “No”.
But yet I am cracking inside.
The third person comes…
And I break.
I say yes,
but I don’t go back to those I said no to
Why can’t I say no?
Why do I always say yes?
Why can’t I be mean?
But it’s alright, I guess…
Being nice is a good thing
Maybe it will make up
for all those other mean people
that exist in this world.
