The Girl That I Loved - Poem by Wilfred Mellers

The Girl That I Loved
Written by: Wilfred Mellers,3 September 2015


The girl that I wanted doesn't want me
Sometimes I wonder if she misses me
Can't remember when last that she kissed me
It's a crying shame and for I'm to blame

The girl that I loved doesn't love me
Sometimes I wonder if she misses me
Can't remember when last that she kissed Me
It's a crying shame and for I'm to blame

Tried everything to make her happy
But that didn't make her love me
Gave her everything that I had
But this only made her mad
Tried to make her days sunny
I always tried to be funny
Always the unfortunate guy
I don't understand why she had to lie

Gave her money and jewelry too
I guess inside I always knew
To myself, I was lying
The truth I was denying
Her looks were so alluring
Untruthful words were reassuring
Once again I finished last
I can't escape from an ugly past

Truthful facts I must accept
Dried the tears that I've wept
All my promises that I've kept
In the game, I'm not so adept
The pain steadily increases
Shattered my heart into many pieces
Why did you have to lie to me
For I would've set you free

Now the games goes on
And I'm still here alone
Cursed the day that I was born
For I'm still so torn
From experience, I have grown
No longer afraid to be on my own
I can face day and the unknown
You're just a stepping stone
