Girls are not made of sugar.

We do not melt under a single touch.

Our hearts aren’t made of glass,

They’re  made of muscle, 

and will never shatter under your crushing blow.

Our skulls aren't filled with poetry.

It’s instead filled with pictures and broken desires, dreams and hopes.

Not glitter.

Nor sequins.  

Girl’s hair is not made of silk,

It is instead, made up of dead cells that we hide behind,

But not from you; for you’re nothing to fear.

Our hearts are only there to pump our blood.

Our hair is only there to cover our heads.

Our muscles are there to help us move.

And our brains are there to help us think.

We are not there for you.

We can survive without you.

Our bones refuse to break.

And we’ll always end up standing,

Without you.

Because It’s only you,

Who can’t survive without us.

I hate valentines day...
Had a bad er... 'Break up' if you can call it that, and I'm a little tired of being looked at as if I'm made of glass, or am a monster, or an unrecognizable creature.
...  Just tired in general.
Nap time.

Edit- I never thought I would get so many views on this. Thank you all.

Edit 2-- Oh dear. This was never meant to be hateful towards men in general, I was just a wee bit angry. I'm very sorry if I offended some of you, it was never meant to be that way, but an outlet for my own feelings. (I never thought that many people would see it in general.) I do greatly appreciate the criticism though, and I respect all of your opinions. Thank you.

Edit 3 --
...

After reading, and re-reading, and re-reading this idiotic poem again, and again, and again I find certain flaws within myself, just within a single line. (And yes, I did use a bunch of 'ands' in that sentence, aren't I a rule breaker?) And I have a few things to say.

I'm not changing the poem. I refuse to. Not only would it ruin it, but honestly, it would probably break my heart to do so.
It's not that I'm some radical feminist, that I want all the men in the world to 'burn' or something like that; it's not, I swear. When I wrote this, that was far from my mind. Honestly, I was just angry, pitifully, and pathetically, angry that I was being almost harassed by someone who refused to stop texting me. And honestly, what annoyed me more was that they didn't spell half the words out. So Valentines day - 2014, I was rather some pissy chipmunk, shoving her cheeks with chocolate.
Now, yes, after getting some of the replies on this, I am now quite feminist-- and this probably fueled my writing rage for a few days. (Which, to those, I say thank you.) 
But let me remind you; this is a poem.
This is just emotion.
This wasn't meant to attack anyone.
This was me- pushing away from some idiot, who wouldn't leave me alone.
And spell out their words.
The end.
Nothing to it.
Thank you, and have a safe and wonderful year.

I could sense that you were angry when you wrote this. I didn't get an "I'm trying to offend" feel from it -- more like an "I'm going to get this off my chest or I'll explode" feel -- but the energy, the tension, is very evident. And I agree with most of it ("most" meaning everything but the last two lines); we have this tendency to romanticize ourselves and others, leading to unrealistic expectations. So we need to be honest with ourselves, and with others -- remind ourselves and others that we are human beings, not porcelain dolls or damsels in distress, but human beings with our own minds and the ability to stand on our own.

I am a man and this offends me.

That said, I can see the place it's coming from even if I don't agree with the way it's laid out :/

Okay, es bueno que nos traigas a la realidad y nos bajes de las estrellas; pero si tuviste una mala experiencia, no significa que odies a los hombres por eso. El mundo funciona porque un hombre y una mujer se complementaron, ellos necesitan a ellas, y ellas necesitan a ellos. Es así y no se puede cambiar porque está en la naturaleza que Dios nos ha dado. Y, bueno, me parece una bonita escritura, pero recuerda que, aunque no todo es color de rosa, tampoco es todo gris y malas experiencias.
Un saludo! ;D

I'm sorry you had that bad experience. But at least you managed to let it out with this poem. 
Some men may not like it but one can see you just need to express your frustration :)

Well, the last six lines are quite hateful towards men. :) Not that I mind, I'm all for self-expression.
