To The One Who Let Me Go*

by lost in lovee   Feb 26, 2010


To the one who let me go,
Who made me cry but didn't know.
He never saw what his lies led to
And sadly now we are through --

In the end I have no regrets,
Nothing that I would ever want to forget.
I will and always have cherished everything we had
Even though remembering everything only makes me sad.

At first everything was perfect, just me and you.
You told me you loved me and I told you one day I'd love you too.
Then that one day came,
When I was finally able to tell you I felt the same.

You made me so happy, that was something I could not pretend,
But then out of nowhere the happiness began to end.
Slowly I felt you pulling away,
But I held on tight, I wanted you to stay.

I prayed that everything would change,
That you would stop acting so strange,
And show me I wasn't wasting my time,
That you actually wanted to be mine.

But instead you took my heart and stomped it to the floor
And my dumbass kept going back for more
Because you kept saying you still loved me.
Love made me blind so I did not see,
That all you were doing was lying.
I guess that's why I stayed up every night crying.

It was like I was holding on to someone who wasn't even there,
But I stayed around because I truly cared.
I knew you didn't anymore, and I was starting to accept that fact
You didn't have to pretend anymore, I could see through your face.

It was time for it to be over; I knew this was true,
But telling you this I just couldn't do.
Then one day I got a call
And you told me we had to end this all,
Neither of us were happy, we could no longer pretend.
Both of us were living lies and this just had to end.
I told you I agreed with you one hundred percent.
I knew for awhile our relationship had a dent.
I told you I loved you, but what we were doing was right,
That I'd see you around and goodnight.

We tried to get back together
But we didn't and I knew it was for the better.
Jesus, just always remember, my love for you will always be there,
Not how it was before, but I will always care.

    Well first off I think you need a little more structure in your stanzas. I thought the syllabol count was a little off. I also think you can be more descriptive emotionally, like can you use other words beside like sad and things like that. Overall the nice job. 3.5/5

    This was really sad and heartfelt. it's upsetting to know that things don't always work out the way you wish deep down in your heart they would. keep it up :)
