About the Poem

I'd been in love with this guy for almost 2 years when a friend of mine started dating him. Well she went away for a week and me and him had the best time together . . . this is about what happened and what I told her when she returned and found out.

First Yours, Now Mine

There is just one saying
That could describe what happened.
When the cat's away,
The mice will play . . .

Well, you were the cat
And we were the mice
You left us alone
Now you pay the price.
You knew that I loved him
And I'd do anything I could do
Just to take him away with me
And far away from you.
I made the mistake of loving him
But I do with all my heart
I've loved him longer that you've had him
And I'll be happy when you part.
But you made a mistake
You left him with me
And during that week
My love I made him see.
I'll admit that I love him
And he says he loved me to
So just leave us to be
There is nothing you can do.

I liked that poem a lot. It showed there is always another side if the coin, another point of view. Very awesome.
I love it. it's evil, yet perfect and I am in that same situation now. Good job!
Gurl, that poem was off the hook! I understand exactly where your coming from.the same thing happened to me.
This has never happened to me at all but this poem is shibby. I love it. To bad for that other girl ah? All's fair in love and war
This is an awesome poem. It explains what just happened in my life! If you have any more poetry that isn't published will u please email it to me? It would be greatly appreciated!
I thought this poem really good but if she was your friend and she knew you loved him how is she going to go out with him that's just wrong i hope you get your guy and your friend leaves you alone! i give this a 100+
This was a good poem
I think that this poem is really good, it really reminds me of myself.
this poem reminds me of a simualar situation of mine, took the thoughts right out of my head
very true and smooth it's pleasing to read it
I thought that that poem that I just read was true in a way but also mean in another way. Sure that girl likes him and I was in the same situation but I guess it was easier because that girl really liked him but he told me that he liked me. I didn't think anything else of it but later on I finally found out that my love for him was true and that we were meant to be and that we belonged together. Now before all of this happened my friend was talking crap about me and I didn't appreciate it so I went up to that girl and told her that was all messed up and if she wants to take our friendship as a joke then fine but she does not have the right to waste my time. After that my bro wanted to hook me up with someone and then she hooked me up with him and now we are going out but my friendship with that girl is over.
i thnk that that is tuching to my hert
I liked it although I would like to know how your friend took the news that you 2 where 2gether..But I LOVED IT
i thought the poem was so true i've been there myself
Thiswas very original.
i can relate to this poem very much, and i love it!!!!! great writing!!!
This was a great poem that expressed every girls nightmere. It was a good poem with many feelings. All together it was a great poem.
