About the Poem

Love at first site is one thing - but being in love with someone who already has a girlfriend? This poem, my first one, is about my experience with this specific type of love-triangle. You can never ease the pain of being in love with someone who does not love you back. I, unfortunately, learned the hard way.

i love this poem, im currently dating this guy, but also like this other guy who told me he was in love with me, but i think he got tired of waitting and is know dating someone else, and i want him so bad, but dont want to break my bfs heart, this helped me, and im gonna tell everyone how i feel, like a quote i heard, trying to please everyone, will only lead to a disaster.

Me, Not Her

I'm not sure if you know or not
But I really do love you a lot.
You still hold a special place in my heart
And you did, right from the start.

But when she came along and took your breath away,
I was devastated and didn't know what to say.
I spend my nights crying, time after time,
I spent my days lying, saying I was fine.

Little did you know, my heart was crushed inside,
And on that day, a little of me died.
But with her, you look so in love
'Cause you are an angel from above.

I now have to teach my heart to move on,
For, you are now forever gone.
But about one thing I am unsure:
Why it can't be me, and not her.

I loved this poem. It fits me perfectly. Me and my best friend are going through the same thing. I absoulutely like this guy (almost even love him) and he knows. The only problem is he is like in love with another one of my best friends. Well he used to be anyways. and he says hes over her but i dont think he is. And it is so painful. Because it makes me feel like im not good enough for him. And it makes me compare myself to other girls. And i hate that! Thanks for sharing this poem.

FANTASTIC. HUNNY I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT. that was amazing. i think every girl has that feeling but doesn't want to say it or express because we feel its not "ok" but its true we all want to kno wat so great about "her". if he doesn't see how much you care then its better that it is her and not u

This is a beautiful poem. I am going through the same thing. I've loved this boy for over a year. Last year, the EXACT DAY I was going to confess to him (and this was big, I'm pretty shy), I found out that the previous night he had confessed to HIS crush. MY BEST FRIEND. And she liked him back. It's so hard seeing them together and I'm trying so hard to move on.
