The Man I Thought Was Mine - Poem by Rosie Bourget

Broken heart is painful
Since it was so cool
Call me naive, I gave my soul
I was such a fool
I paid the price in full!

I guess it was never meant to be
I miss what we used to be
I miss you telling me
I am beautiful
Wasn't that wonderful?

I miss our sneaking around
Because you are not around
Your love has let me down
Trying to make it on my own
Thinking about it just brings me down!

How did I let it happen?
Now that I am in pain
One thing for certain
The memories still remain
It's time to make another plan!

You are crying for undivided attention
Not knowing the meaning of affection
You put yourself in detention
Your lack of passion and motivation
Has led to all of these frustrations!

I thought it was going to last forever
I realized later
My day gets darker
I will always remember
What we have shared together!

There is nothing left in my head
This feeling is dead
I fell for your lovely words
While you kept moving backwards
I love you, but you ran like a coward!

It's hard to understand
Where exactly you stand
Your lies and games, oh what a shame!
Being the one to blame
You will always be the same!

    An insightful portrayal of heartbreak, deceit, and disappointment in a voyage of bliss that is love, nicely brought forth from the heart. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Sometimes, in order to let go, it is better to write about deception than to hide it and be miserable. Thank you very much for your input Dike.
