About the Poem
This poem was written from my heart. I wrote it because my boyfriend and I are going through hard times and I wanted him to know my feelings and what I wanted things to change. I also wrote this poem because expressing feelings in poetry is so much easier than just saying what you feel in a simple way. I hope that he will read this poem . . . and things between us will get better.

|I wait by the phone everyday
But you never call
I get ready to go somewhere
But you never show up
I tell you important things
But you never listen
I say I love you
But you never answer
I write you mail
But you never respond
I ask if you love me, I ask if you care
But you never pay attention to me.
You make me feel all alone.
You make me feel unloved.
You make me feel like no one cares and no one ever will
How can you do that to someone you are supposed to love?
How can someone so sweet be so cruel?
How can I hate so many things you do but still love you so much?
Those are questions that will go unanswered forever
Because I can ask and ask but you will never respond.
