About the Poem

This poem was written to a guy who took something special away from me - my virginity. After that, we never talked again. At the time, he had a girlfriend, but I thought I'd win him over. Little did I know, he only wanted one thing.

Never Asked

I never asked you to call me,
Never asked to go with you that day.
That one night was perfect. We were one, but I
knew I'd be the one to pay.
I never asked you to make me feel good,
Never asked you to look my way.
It takes two to do what happened that night, so
there's nothing more you can say.
I never asked for you to care,
Never asked to be the only one.
I knew she was in your life too,
But still I thought I'd won.
I never asked for promises,
Never asked if I could put my trust in you.
I always though I could handle the things
you "so often" like to do.
I never asked you to turn away,
Never asked you to make me cry.
You go on with your life like nothing ever
Happened while I slowly start to die.
I never asked for this loneliness,
Never asked to be the one to blame.
You tried putting all the guilt on me while you
Were the one playing the mind game.
I never asked for this empty feeling,
Never asked you to be there.
While I sit here confused in my own little world,
All you can do is stare.
I never asked if you loved me,
Never asked you to take something special away.
I can't think straight and my heart aches, all
Because of that day.
I never asked for an explanation,
Never asked to be on your mind that day.
Even though I never asked you anything,
I'm broken hearted either way.

i really liked this poem because when i was just 15 years old the same thing happened to me and i was left so confussed and two year have past and im still not over him and he lives by me so i see him most days but yet we dont talk he is all so my older brothers best mate so he is often at my house and every time he comes over i get butterflys and have to hide away in my room and this is the only poem i have found that means alot after looking for one for two years

I absoultely loved your poem! I kinda relate to it in a way, but I wasn't a virgin. I had already lost my virginty to a guy I had been with for 2 years, but after we broke up I started going out more and meeting people and hanging out with my brother and his friends. I started getting close to a friend of my brothers and me and him ended up having sex and he had a girlfriend at the time also. now everytime I see him I have strong feelings against him. It hurts me knowing that I actually thought he cared about me. But trust me eventually when you find the love of your life,your life will be better.

Sam
I liked this poem. It reminds me of a situation I was almost in. Im still a virgin though. But it was close one night. But this guy is a player and he would never be with just me. But I have never felt this way for a guy ever. I have wanted to be with him from the momment I met him. What is wrong with me? I wish there was an off switch. I dont want to lose my virginity to someone that dont care about me the way I do him.

Kim
THIS Poem captures my Daughter's same experience. only he was her Fiance. She waited on him to come home from the Navy, she didn't see the end coming. And then it did, just like this. You never know the pain until you hold your daughter in your arms all night as she cries. AND you know in your Mother's Heart, SHE will never be the same.
Tinx
As the other woman I know how the poet feels but it helps to know that there are people who make the same mistakes. This poem is real and made me relise a few home truths. Thankyou

Bryan
This is the first time I have came to this site and I read this poem and it put me in tears. I am so sorry someone did something like that to you. I dont know how someone can be so cold hearted. I went through the same thing. I dated a girl from 6 grade to just about a year ago. I never had sex with her until I thought she was ready and when I was ready. Soon as we made "LOVE," atleast I thought it was special she just left 2 days later. I loved her more than my own life and she hurt me more than anyone could ever hurt me. I am really sorry for what happened to you and you will find someone in your life that will treat you like a women should be treated. A QUEEN! Cause your nothing less than a queen in my eyes and I dont even know you. I hope you find happiness soon in your life and I hope I find it too.
Darlene
I just loved this poem I too went through the same thing and wished I could of taken it back but you can't.It's been yrs now since that happened to me and it is something you can't just forget.
cammy
great poem.im still a virgin myself and its a very special thing to me so i can see how hard it would be to lose something so special to you in that way. i recently was with a guy that i believe only wanted one thing from me and it hurts when you care about someone so much and they could care less.hope you can move on and find someone who will love you for you. its sad that us girl have to deal with cold hearted guys like that
dotun

Natalie
I loved this poem. I know that some people who have gone through the same thing, take their life because of it. I cant imagine how anyone could ever do that to someone else!
Alicia

Ashlei
This poem is really touching. It touches your heart and really makes you think. I'm still a virgin so I can't say I can relate to her. I'd say forget about him but when he takes something that special it's hard to forget. But I hope Jessica can move on in her life.
melissa
