***I've only just written this but it happened about a year ago i was "friends" with this girls who just made me feel so worthless and pathetic and I've tried to write about it before but it hasn't worked, so id really like to know what you guys think of this it would mean a lot to me , thanks***
Hey I know it's impossible,
but I tried for perfection
cause I wanted acceptance
and you gave rejection.
I didn't hate you - I wanted to love you
and when each day did dawn - grass soaked with dew
once again I'd fake that smile
just so i could be, good enough for you.
Some call it pathetic,
Some say it's lame,
but day after day
i'll continue on in this childish game
I'll beg for you love,
and with the most forced of smiles - ill try all day long.
Till alone in my room, ill turn up the radio and cry until dawn
then one day ill realise I'll realize I got it all wrong.
I needn't have endured the put-downs and the pain
I didn't need to feel so worthless or meek
I didn't need to play your stupid little game
and let you walk all over me.
Cause I can never be all that you wanted of me!
I can't change the way I am - I can't be perfect!
The truth is your no better than me!
and a true friend would love me, JUST AS I AM
Amazing poem. I too write about things when I have problems, but sometimes it helps to hear a poem from someone else, who is going through the same thing. I hope you had the strength to get away from that "friendship." I am in the middle of the situation you wrote about but I don't have the strength to get away. I loved your poem. Im not alone.
