“Last Love Poem”

You didn’t want a forever.

All I wanted was to be together,
but you basically said “never”.

No more of my lipstick
on your neck
it’s making me sick.

No more of my letters,
please, take back all your sweaters.

No more “only for you”
when you actually
wouldn’t mind having two.

I can’t be the person you want me to be.

It kills me, it really does.

You won’t see me in a white dress,
I won’t see you at the end of the aisle,
we won’t say “I do”.

This is the last love poem
I’m writing for you.

“The Moment I Said It”

The moment I said it,
I wished I could take it back.

The words that danced on my lips,
swayed away so quick.

What was I thinking?
My heart is now sinking.

Please forgive me.

Because I would do anything to take back,
the moment I said it.

“Putting You In A Poem”

Putting you in a poem,
isn’t easy.

You must be flattered.
but all I understand is that my heart is shattered.

Here’s to you.

I write and erase,
I erase those memories out of my head.

I write and cross out,
I cross out the things I wish didn’t happen.

I write and use white out.
I use white out on everything I pray you would undo.

Suddenly I’m back to where I started.

A blank piece of paper,
and a blank heart.

You see,
putting you in a poem isn’t easy.

So next time you read something that makes you feel flattered,
understand that to me it actually mattered.

“Home Is Where You Are”

They said I should move,

but I can’t.

This is home.

Home is where you are.

Home is where we first kissed on my front porch.

Home is where we secretly met up by the lake.

Home is the grass we lay on as we gazed into each other’s eyes.

Home is your silhouette in the window, before you shut off the lights.

Home is where I stare out into the stars hoping you’re thinking of me like I’m thinking of you.

They just don’t get it do they?

Home is where you are.

“Nothing”

You say it meant nothing.
You want me to say the same.

Fine I will.

The kiss on my neck,
that left me in a wreck,
it meant nothing.

Pushing away my hair,
as you embraced me on my chair,
it meant nothing.

The way you would glare,
as you saw me bare,
it meant nothing.

Fulfilling all your temptations,
that would relieve your frustrations,
it meant nothing.

Seeing you in public the next day,
all for you to just look away,
wow I guess it really did mean nothing.

“Every Girl”

The way he held me,
he holds every girl like that.

The way he talked to me,
he smooth talks every girl like that.

The way he comforted me,
he comforts every girl like that.

But he said I wasn’t like every other girl,
I guess he said that to every other girl.

“Played”

I will never stop being played,
will I?

What is it about me,
that attracts “them”?

I thought that night
was more than just right.

No wonder why I haven’t heard from you in so long,
you were waiting for “her” all along.

You haven’t changed at all,
you still know how to make me feel so small.

When will this end?
It’s a stupid trend.

“Forbidden”

I sat on the beach today,
and I thought about us.

I wrote our names in the sand,
I just wish people could understand.

People say our love is forbidden.

They just don’t understand.

We’ve known each other for so long,
we have something strong.

Whenever we’re together,
I feel like forever.

I don’t know anyone else who can make me feel,
so absolutely real.

As the waves wash away our names,
I see my fantasy go up in flames.

Why must our love,
be so forbidden?
