The GOLD now goes to ME

by IdTakeABulletForYou   Dec 31, 2006

And here we stand, as lovers;
Here, we stand as friends.
Here we stand, with such a strength,
Of what will never end.

Here, we stand as people.
Who, once two, became one.
We stand so tall, a noble poise,
beneath the auburn sun.

And here we stand as buddies
-- We'll always stand as pals.
The One who you can talk to
when your world is falling down.

I wrote those lines some time ago
-- I thought that they were true;
Instead, I stood before a liar,
all along, who had been you.

And here I stand alone now;
where once I stood with you.
I stood there with a liar
-- I was standing in the truth.

The truth that I'd been blind to;
I stood, but couldn't see
that right in front of my two eyes,
the truth was before me.

I stood with an impression
--in fact, I stood with pride;
Blind to what I should have seen
-- it stood before my eyes.

I put you on a pedastal
and I stood on a stool.
To you I gave a gold medal.
To me, you made a fool.

I understood such little.
You'd concurred such a lie;
And what I thought was forever
would never last the night.

I spoke of you with such a love
that only led to heart-break.
And you stood right in front of me
and lied, right to my face.

And here I stand, the spotlight bright;
The Truth has been revealed.
You cheated, losing your award
-- The Gold Now Goes to Me.

    The rythm scheme was off abit but the message was right in your face. I liked how you boldly expressed your distain for the other person it was well writen in that manner. All and all it was good I would have rythmed it abit more to keep the flow going but it was a good read. ok this is the 5th poem and now I will e-mail you with my over view hope you can take it.
