A different kind of love.

I just want you to know

That my feelings never subsided

No matter how much I tried to act like I didn't care

And how I much I tried to hide it

But the love between us was one sided

And at the start, I did try to fight it

But the war was impossible

Someone had to surrender

So I put down my swords

Pulled my guns apart and did it ever so tender

'Cause the pain for you was raw

My internal wounds are still sore

Hidden by a front Which left their back at loves door

And I ain't one to bore or procasanate about what I never had

But when I fell for you

Damn I didn't just graze my knee on unrequitted loves sidewalk

'Cause I fell bad

And ain't it sad how you offer your heart to the greatest

But the realities always the fakest

Because fairy tales, and happy ever afters

Are only for the movie makers

;(

Very nice! You have spoken the words that so many people feel after being rejected or betrayed in love. A very deep and emotional poem of love and hurt. Thanks for sharing it!

This is awesome! Love it. You're very impressive when it comes to portraying emotion in writing. Also, I love the part where you talk about how hard you fall by comparing it to a scrape vs. something worse. Well done!

I think SkinDeep has said it best here... You have done an amazing job with this... I congratulate you on it's worth & value as a statement about how one should realize the impact one makes on the life, feelings, & emotions of another before one just moves on & starts a new chapter in life...
