About the Poem

I wrote this one night while I was trying to lie to myself. I tried to say that this person had meant nothing to me - a vain attempt to get over my broken heart.

We were actually perfect for each other, but I wanted nothing more than to mend my own heart in the quickest way possible. He was the first person I have ever loved and it hurt when I still loved him, but he no longer had the same feelings for me.

Deceiving Me

When I said I loved you,
It was a lie.
Lust is what
I felt inside.
I'm still wondering
what love is,
This couldn't have been it,
it wasn't all bliss.
We definitely wouldn't
be good together;
The two of us mixing
was like bad weather.
You were snow,
and I was the sun.
The task of staying together
could never be done.
If I say this over and over,
maybe I'll believe.
I'll get out of this okay,
if I can deceive me.

This is a really good poem, I think we all try to decieve our true feelings especially about love. I can realte to this poem like I wrote it myself. Thank you for this poem!
This poem is extremly sad but true. this is what most girls do. Sometimes I wish that we could just give up in a relationship as easily as they can. But I honestly don't think it can be done with out us trying our best to keep what we believed was true Love. Love the poem. keep up the good work!

I really liked this poem a. lot because it reminded me of a boy that I think that I'm in love with, but sometimes I try to tell myself I'm not because all he does is hurt me, and I think this poem really expresses the way I feel! I think it is a terriffic poem! Keep up the good work!
This a tight poem! Its exactly how I feel about boy named Johnny.
Wow, this is a great poem. So many of us dont want to feel this pain, so we deny it and lie to every1 including ourselves. You brought the feeling to life with your poem, thanx. You should be proud of yourself and your work. Keep it up. God Bless.
this poem was said in a way that i could relate with if i were to scale this from 1-10 i would scale it with a 8
Very good. It was touching. It really makes ya think. I have tried to decieve myself many times but honestly i don't think it can be done the heart is stronger than the brain in my personal opinion. Very good writing
This poem touches the feeling of love I have for a person who doesn't seem to feel the same way back. So I think this poem is one of the best I ever read before.

This poem reminds me of what I once said to a guy that I said I love you too. It really brought a smile to my face
i give this poem a nine out of ten because i can relate to what the pot was talking about and i feel like its a really emotional poem that alot of people go through.
I am so glad I read that poem. I used to lie to myself all the time. I told a boy I didn't love that I loved him, and the worst part was I believed it. After reading this poem, I now know that it was a lie. A way to get myself out of a situation I'm going through. pregnancy. Teen pregnancy. But now I know that the father of my future baby I do not love. I will be fine. At least I know the truth. And that, I believe, is always the first step. Thank you.
GREAT poem. bravo. i know i would be the same way.
i can relate to it.

This was a great poem. I can relate to nit because I am going through it right now. The guy I love is now ignoring me and I act like I don't care but I love him so much.
The reason why I liked this poem because I went throught the same thing with my ex. I tryed to act like he meant nothing when I really still loved him and needed him alot. So this poems reminded me of what I once had.
