16 years old - 19 years old

Two different poems I wrote in two different stages of my life. One's supposed to be the 'part 2', as written three years later.
So....um...yeah. In celebration of the fact that I now officially have 100 posts on this forum. WOO!

------------------------
16 Years Old

sixteen years old and already screwed
i didn't used to enjoy feeling so abused
your scratching touch, your biting kiss
i don't think i'm supposed to be liking this
it feels so wrong and yet so right
and i know we'll do it every night
tortured pleasure and broken pain
i'll beg and plead for it again
sixteen years old and already fucked
never know what'll become of us
over and over i ask of me
'just what the hell am i supposed to be?'
dizzying gasps and endless game
like a star riding the top of fame
coming down on top of you
force me aside and we'll start anew
sixteen years old and going to hell
where this road ends, you'll never tell
drop me at the end and leave me for dead
in a place where not even demons would tread
sixteen years old and already dying
abandoned, alone, so sick of crying
and you'll pick me up and we'll start again
funny, considering you were my only friend...

19 Years Old - the Sequel

i made it to nineteen, aren't you proud
i'm standing on a mountain and screaming out loud
i survived, i did it, i made it here
i'm facing the world with everything to fear
i see the challenges i will have to meet
while the ground is shaking beneath my feet
and yet i wonder and i furrow my brow
'just what the hell am i supposed to do now?'

no longer a kid but still not yet grown
despite what the mountains i've conquered have shown
three years past and i still feel sixteen
i've been at the top and the bottom and everywhere in between
i've been fucked and screwed and tattered and torn
i've died again and been reborn

and here i am, still young at nineteen
the ground is still shaking, now i'm stumbling
then on my knees with tears in my eyes
still just a kid, still making those cries
adult by age only, i've got growing up to do
and just for that - you and i are through

i thought you knew what i was going to be
i thought i understood what it was to be me
but i was wrong; i failed when i tried
and so you walk away; a part of me just died
a million times this will happen again
i'm always destroyed by my closest friend

i'm just nineteen, no more, no less
a pretty little girl trying on her mother's dress
just because i'm nineteen doesn't make grown clothes fit
it's not like they come with a 'how-to' do-it-yourself kit
and even then, i don't think i want to wear them yet
i still want to play, i think that's my safest bet

but as i play
you walk away
and now i'm slowly dying
i wish i could
be what i should
because then i could stop crying.
