What Was I?

by Imperfectly Writing On The Walls   Jul 20, 2013

Behind all those winks, was there any truth?
Did you mean half those compliments,
or am I another fool for your game?
Did I fall for one of those corny pick up lines
that you always talked about?

Is there a reason I fall second best to every girl?
Was it the way I actually opened up to you,
or did you just let that be a part of the game?
Was I never good enough for you in the first place,
or did you lose at your own game?

Will your eyes ever reveal the truth
of what this was supposed to be?
Can you give me a hint if I'm close?
Was I a part of a bet that you could
win any girl's heart given the chance?

The truth is all I need to set me free...

    I loved how you got your true feelings out in this poem.I feel like they were building inside of you. Its hard when you fall for someone that is playing hard to get or makes you feel like this. Its hard to give our hearts away and when we do we truly think it might be forever.

    Again when you feel like you are unloved its hard to open up and when you do its hard when they dont love you back or you feel like they dont. You describe this person and you so well here. Sometimes we must go through heart break to find the one. The one that will always love us. So keep your head held high!

    We all want the truth no matter what and the truth really can help to let go of your past or love. I love this poem because as I said it seems like you reached down deep to let it all out and it worked well for you. I hope you get over this person. May your heart love again. 5
