The Door

I have this feeling I’ve never felt before
It’s like the slamming of a door
My heart ache’s to be with him

He was the first guy I noticed
In my freshman year
He was in 2 out of my 8 classes

One day I found out about the dance
All I wanted to do was go with him
My “friends” all encouraged me, but in the end…
He came to me

His exact words still run through my head…
“Since your being such a chicken shit, will you go with me? ”

Of course I said yes
I just couldn’t wait for him to show
But something happened, he couldn’t go

I went with the guy who would break my heart
He was bad from the beginning
Something I couldn’t see
Even when you tried to show me

I should have listened
I wouldn’t feel this pain
I also wouldn’t feel this comfort
You had waiting for me when I came

You were always there for me
Something I could never see
We are alike in so many ways
And different in more
But I no longer felt the slamming of that door

One day you brought the door back
And slammed it in my face

You said I was holding you back
That you wanted to run with the pack
I’ll tell you something,
I don’t follow, I lead

School is tough
Love is tougher
But school heart breaks are the worst

I have found comfort in my friends
The one’s I know won’t hurt me
They explain that we were never right
They helped me through an internal fight

I will always care
Not the way I used to
There are other people for me
Something I can now finally see

Some one helped me open the door
And once more I open myself up
I don't really trust anyone anymore
Because of what Boy's have done to me before

I hope to never be hurt again
I know it will happen,
That is why I don't let him in like I did

He is nice to me and truly loves me
But I thought you did to,
You proved to me that I can't trust everyone anymore

    I can feel the intensity of this poem! !
    We all will have slamming doors in our face, it's just what we decide to do after that is what defines who we are!
    Me dear, keep on writing and remember that God is love and because He love us We will always be able to Love! !

    Happy writing! ! (Report) Reply

    Full of feeling in a fantastic way. When the heart has been broken it can be difficult to trust but when one finds the right person, trust is beautiful. Thanks for sharing my friend (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
