The title speaks for itself.

A Bittersweet Tragedy

Do not fall in love with someone like me.
I will love you more than anything, and give you the greatest ride of your life.
I will take care of you, and kiss you in every beautiful way.
But when I grow tired of you, I will break your precious little heart,
I will ruin anything beautiful we ever created, and I will send our greatest memories
crashing down to the ground with a hell scorned blaze.
And when you look back on what we used to be, nothing will be left
but a bittersweet tragedy.

The powerful truth of an emotion to its extremes. So, profoundly poetic.

I wonder why it has to be that way? Great piece.

I don't know you. But I do. I've been you and I've been undone by you. You meaning those, and there are many, like this tragic figure. I love the truth and how you told it.

If what you say is true in the 2nd and 3rd lines, then it may be worth it. There are worse things than bittersweet.

Well done.

Yep, the title speaks for itself. Well written. Welcome to Poetbay. :)
