This hasn't really happened to me, but I can really imagine the feeling. To me, this poem relates to a great disappointment after you think that you're really close to a person but all of a sudden, they start ignoring you, for whatever reason, whether they got tired of you, mad at you, got what they wanted from you... :( I'm sure a lot of people have gone through this, since many of my friends have told me similar stories of romantic disillusions, but I can only imagine the pain of it... :(

Why can't you hear me?...

I feel as if I were screaming

at the top of my lungs...
 

So then why won't you turn?

You're a single breath away, can't you feel it?


But now I'm beginning to understand...

You can hear me...

Though you wish you couldn't.

You ignore me...

Though I thought you wouldn't.

Why am I still here?

I shouldn't...

Beautiful poem! I can relate to it...Well...I'm going true this right now, it has been 2 months now since my best friend literally abandoned me. We were as close as sisters, always together, she knew everything about me and I knew all her secrets. She promised me she would never hurt me, but in the end, she stopped answering my calls, never answered my emails and when I finally saw her, she acted as if she didn't know me...no one has ever hurt me as much as her. and the worst part is, I still care about her, I try to hate her, but I can't.
anyway...keep up the good work! =)

I'm very sorry to hear that :( my friends mean the world to me and I can't imagine how that would feel... This poem has been in my notebook for YEARS and I thought I should bring it out. Who knows? Maybe someone can learn from it... Anyway, I'm very glad you liked it! :D
