About the Poem

I wrote this poem when I was very young and my boyfriend left me for another girl. I thought he hung the moon, and I was so hurt when I found out he didn't. Love is so beautiful in the beginning and so ugly in the end.

Cruel

Your long brown hair
Your dark blue eyes
Your sexy flair
and your pretty lies
Oh, I fell for them all
I'm such a fool
But I learned baby
You ain't so cool
You're just damned cruel.

I'm biding my time
for the day will come
that the same thing happens to you
And you'll see how it feels
To know it wasn't real
And your dreams won't be coming true.

Her pretty blonde hair
Her ocean blue eyes
Her sexy flair
And her pretty lies
You'll fall for them all
You'll be the fool
And you'll learn baby
Love ain't so cool
Love's just damned cruel.

"Cruel" is the best poem ever! It describes my ex b/f perfectly! I caught him with my best friend then he beat me up and put me in the hospital

I was really hurting and didn't feel like talking to anyone, but her poem spoke to me. It gave me hope that just maybe my ex will get exactly what he gave! I hope that she wins!
