Nice Guy

Poem by James S.

I haven't given up
Even though it's been so long
I thought we were perfect
But i guess i was wrong

You used to be my angel
But now your a lush
Hooking up with guys
Without even a crush

I haven't given up hope
This isnt the end of our glory
We'll be the talk again
Like a new hollywood story

I know it deep down inside
Someday i can be your shoulder
Though after these mistakes
You'll have to be much older

I tell you i love you
You tell me a lie
Tell me when you see it plain
Why not I, the nice guy?

    This one speaks of so much honesty and feelings from the heart. You do a great job of expressing your true feeling and emotion in your poetry. As Francesca said, I think the display of forgiveness and unselfishness makes this a very unique write. I can't wait to see more of your poetry!(Report)Reply

    Stunning write.
    The second stanza was my favorite but the whole poem was quite good.
