mami chula
that was really gewd thats what im goin through but its the other way around its really good
it takes great strenght to let go of someone you love even if they hurt you and i admire that. i have been in that situation but sadly i did not have the strenght to let go. you do not give up on love that easily.

Don't Tell Me You're Sorry

She said she was sorry and started to cry
Said it just happened, she didnt know why
She said shed not loved him, she only loved me
She said shed not stray again ever - Id see

I pictured their passionate times in my mind
I searched for forgiveness but none could I find
I knew if she loved me then surely shed see
That her moments with him brought us both misery

So I pulled from her grasp and I just walked away
And the dreams that we shared were forgotten that day
Though shed asked for forgiveness I just had to find
A love I could count on to truly be mine

I loved your poem but maybe she was really sorry. I can see you've been hurt, but sometimes is it necessary to throw away everything?
Brilliant, realy made me think. Any woman who has been tempted to stray or thinks they might be tempted should read this. Brought a tear to my eye.

This poem should be sent to all those girls who like to hurt guys.
This poem expressed how I feel about a love I had..and what could have happened to me. The only word I could think of after I read this poem was 'wow'. I think that word is perfect for this poem.
This is one of the most beautiful poems I have ever read! This was so wonderful and you have a lot of talent!! I am sorry that this girl did this to you, but obviously she doesn't deserve you!
Very sweet

This poem reflected my soul and how I felt about a past love. It has also helped me struggle forward and find new love.
Really makes me realize what I have done to the man who loves me. Very deep. Hit home.
