About the Poem

This poem is about the pain and confusion I felt when my best friend told me that the guy I was falling in love with was still in love with her. For some reason, even though I knew it wasn't her fault, I felt this burning anger toward her, not toward him. I was confused and my head was spinning, I couldn't even reason with myself or her or my feelings. I cried for an hour, and then I wrote this poem.

I can relate to this poem like it were the exact thoughts that were in my head at the time.
Amber
I loved this poem. I'm going through the exact same thing. I hate the feeling of having the guy you love, love your best friend especially when your best friend knows how you feel about him and comforted you when he broke up with you!. LUV THE POEM!

Her

I hate my life, I should have known
That you'd love her, leave me,
Alone
Why I ever thought you'd love me
I, myself, will never know
Drowning in my tears of sorrow
I try not to let it show

I know it's not her fault you love her
But I can't hide my hate for her right now
I've lived in her shadow for as long as I remember
Alone, unloved, yet surviving, somehow

When she told me that you still loved her
I thought I'd die right there and then
The happiness in her voice,
A knife
Cutting through my soul, my skin

I didn't realize how much I loved you
The pain I felt was strong, disabling.
All I could see was the smile on her face
The anger, ripping, tearing, nauseating.

I know I won't stop loving you,
ever
No matter how hard I try
I don't know if I'll ever really
forgive her
I always feel a hate for her inside

Sitting here now, I don't know how to feel -
Sadness, Hatred, Despair
I'm not sure
Why does this always happen to me
This is a pain that no one deserves.

amanda
I have this exact feeling I'm going through right now only its been about 2 months. Im almost positive that this love will stay but just knowing Im not going through this alone and having people there beside me is a little more comforting. She put it in words that just explains it all I would love to be able to post this on my site if i could get the authors permission
Jerrica
I felt what this girl was going through because it happened to me. Yet, I'm old enough to know this is a lesson I learned in love and there is probably many more to come.
