It's out there now,

for all of you to see.

It's come out plain,

Like a living diary.

I told you how I felt,

Without holding anything back.

I told you what I wanted

And in return I've gotten a smack.

For although you claim to love me,

In all the ways you can.

You failed to mention a girl back home,

The one who makes you feel like a man.

What did I really expect?

You were too good to be true.

I couldn't help it,

All I wanted was to be loved by you.

Tears formed in my eyes,

In front of you I hate to cry.

You took me in your arms,

as I felt my heart slowly die.

You told me that you loved me,

But that it just couldn't last.

You promised that you needed me,

I fell in love so fast.

I knew that it wouldn't work,

Your rank won't mesh with mine,

I told myself not to love you,

I held back every time.

A poem on Booksie,

Notes left at night,

The tools of resilience,

I really did try to fight.

But I couldn't do it anymore,

My love for you was too strong.

I couldn't stop my words,

I can't stop my heart song.

Please don't look at me like that,

I don't want to cry in front of you,

You placed your arms around me

And saidyou loved me too.

But you have a girl waiting,

She will be your whole life,

You have another officer,

And damn it, she will be your wife.

I can't stop this pain,

And nothing you say will make it all right.

I can't stop this feeling,

I cried all last night.

Seeing you in the office,

Pretending like nothing is wrong,

I just can't do it anymore,

I'm not that strong.

But I'll keep on acting,

Because I do it oh so well,

I'll keep on playing nice,

Though my heaven has turned to hell.
