How?

by iloveHIMonly   Dec 28, 2007


How could you play me the way you did?
Acting like you didn't care.
How could you sit there telling me?
That it was my heart you would never tear.

How could you take me for granted?
Making it seem like i was unique.
How could you let me think i could trust you?
In time the trusting became too weak.

How could you expect me to always be here?
Like you owned every move i make.
How could you not resist my kindness?
As i loved you every moment you awake.

How could you treat me the way you did?
And think i would always love you.
How could you rip my heart apart?
Yet still expect me to be true.

How could you be the way you are?
But still have me completely hooked.
How could you say the things you did?
Yet every time you smiled, i looked.

How could you not discover?
That no one will love you like i do.
How could you be so clueless?
In ways i was clueless too.

How could I think that you loved me?
Or that i was something sweet.
How could I fall in love with someone?
Who wouldn't sweep me off my feet.

How could I not follow my heart?
And realize i could do better.
How could I keep it going as long as i did?
Until i finally wrote myself a letter.

A letter that read,
Release your mind.
Follow your heart,
But don't get left behind.

How could I not realize this sooner?
Maybe it took some time.
How could this happen so quickly?
It was like a fast and hated crime.

How come it doesn't bother me?
That your with someone else.
How come I'm not torn inside?
I've finally learned to love myself.

  • I re-read this poem and although it is still completely stunning and powerful in its emotional aggressiveness.... but, I somehow think maybe the person that made you feel that way in the first place.... feels completely awful for it and i'm sure he would do anything he could possibly image to change the way that left you feeling... ***HUGS&KISSES***
