Why did I believe you?

You told me you didn’t have room

On your phone that was true

But even more so in your heart

So, I you asked for my number

And I handed you my heart

 

I texted you first

In just three hours

I felt connected to you

You never told me you were single

But I never asked either

 

I was excited to see you

You said you liked me

But why, when I reciprocate

Do you push me away?

 

Push

Pull

Push

Pull

 

You hug me

And touch me

You do it when you please

But when I want it you’re nowhere to be seen

 

Behind closed doors

In the dark of the cinemas

Never in the eyes of other

Especially her

 

I was enjoying my time

Ding

Ding

Ding

 

“I’m sorry” -  Read 7:07

“I lied” -  Read 7:08

“I have a girlfriend” -  Read 7:09

“sorry :p” -  Read 7:10

 

You never mentioned her

Not when you hugged me

Not when you took me out

Never

 

I should have noticed

you ran when your friends came around

silenced me when I said your name

“god am I stupid!!”         

 

No, I’m not

I was naive

Sweet molasses words

Covered venomous whispers

 

I learned what you gave me

It wasn’t love

I know you said, “I love you”

But your love wasn’t true

This poem is about: 
Me
