About the Poem

This poem I wrote for a guy that I liked. Some guy told him that I had a boyfriend. When I told him that I didn't he didn't believe me. He believed his friends over me. Later when he found out his friend was lying he came back to say sorry. It hurt but I sent him away. I went home the night he came to say sorry and I wrote this. I think I loved him. But it will be a long time until I can forgive him. That was the biggest mistake he ever made, I hope realizes it now.


I turn around and see you,
Standing stiff with pride.
Your face is turned from me,
But deep feelings you cannot hide.

I see your smile vanish,
As you turn to look at me.
In my heart I know,
The truth you'll never see.

You think I have betrayed you,
You think I have done wrong.
But I will not let you know what you had,
Until I am gone.

You are blind to me,
To what I am inside.
But one day you will learn,
To cast away your pride.

Maybe then I will forgive,
But I never will forget,
The tenderness you once showed me,
The sweet words you now regret.

One day I will return,
To see if you have learned,
The greatest Jewel you ever possessed,
Was the one that you so burned.
