About the Poem

I really loved some one. We grew up together, as classmates and graduated from business school together. We fell in love on Valentine's day 4 years ago. He was the only love I have experienced and we broke up recently. I wrote this as an expression of my feelings when he walked out , leaving me for someone else.

I Was A Fool For You.

I don't know when my laughter turned to tears,
When my joys became my fears,
when one touch and you'd be gone,
and I'd be standing all alone.
I laughed till I cried,
I knew, but still I tried,
To make a place in your life.

You walked away without a word,
you neither saw nor heard
The love I tried to prove
The way my life, around you moved.
I don't know how long I cried
and wished that I had died.

And how my body ached for you,
And how you ignored my love so true.
So, I'm standing all alone again,
Wiping the tears that always begin,
Every day and every night
and every silent moment of my life ,
Whenever I think of the many ways
I was a fool for you.
