I wrote this letter to my boyfriend, basically telling him how I feel. Oh, and I never got to read it to him because he wouldn't let me finish.

Didn’t Want to Tell You Like This
December 1st, 2010 1:30 a.m
I’m sorry to tell you like this, didn’t want to read off paper
It’s tearing me up inside, better sooner than later.
These first few lines were written to grab your attention
Hope you’re listening now, this is important enough to mention.
I don’t remember the last time you looked deep into my eyes, just curious
I have to beg you to acknowledge me; it makes me more than furious.
You make me feel sorry for myself because I feel so alone
No matter how much I cry; excuses are all you’ve shown.
Every day you think I am seeking attention from everyone but you
That’s the farthest thing from the truth; if not you then who?!
We have spent so much time together in a little over a year
I believe we adore each other; we’ve made that very clear.
I don’t doubt our love and what we have both made
But when I speak to you, I might as well be in a cave.
So empty to my thoughts and my innermost feelings
I need feedback from you, give me some meaning.
My stomach turns now when I have to hear you speak all day long
Then when I get a chance to get a word in, your cellphone plays a song.
When you’re done with your call it’s like I was never speaking in the first place
Then you put the music up and continue talking about what’s his face.
You think paying for everything is the key to not have to listen
Oh what I would give to talk to you and see you glisten.
You’re so involved in your affairs there’s no time for me
But just a little care and effort is the remedy for things to be.
I am not trying to hassle you, I need you to understand
I need a little salt, you make talking to you so bland.
I know you’re smart and got it all figured out
But this is one thing you don’t understand; without a doubt.
You’re the one person in this world that I share everything with
And your interest in my thoughts would be the most valuable gift.

aww! This poem conveys so much feeling, emotion and meaning. I love how the words float freely and just seem to bounce off the page as if they're alive. Well done and I hope things get better for you. That boyfriend of yours needs a reality check...a slap on the face would surface though, I'm sure.
