Heartbreak Poem by Teens

Poem About Betrayal And Moving On

This poem is for my ex. We were together for almost a year. He cheated on me multiple times, but I could not get up the courage to leave. Finally I did. He convinced me that he would change. He was sorry, and I went back. I don't regret being with him because it made me who I am today. I just hope that I never go through anything like this ever again. I'm 17 years old. My life should not be like this.

I Loved You


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2011 with permission of the Author.

You have no idea how I felt
You were my entire life
They say with time broken hearts heal
Rather than wait, I turned to my knife

I gave you everything I could
I gave up everything for you
You hurt me in return
Like I knew you would do

They tried to make me see
What you were all about
I turned away in disbelief,
Had to find out for myself

In the beginning everything was great
You made me smile, you made me laugh
I fell for you, took the bait
But what I saw of you was only the good half

Months went by, I was in love
Thought you were all I would ever want or need
But clearly love was not enough to make you rise above
The reputation they told me to heed

Then things started going bad
I found you and her
It made me so mad
You're not the person I thought you were

I forgave you
For the betrayal and silly lies
Because you changed my view
To you I had so many ties

I began to realize
That nothing was changing
You were like so many other guys
Constantly cheating

What did she have
That I was lacking
Was it looks
Or was it what she was packing

I tried to end it
But you kept holding on
I tried to run away
But you would not let me stay gone

You kept calling and calling
Convinced me I was wrong
Finally I was bawling
I couldn't move on

So here was chance two
My biggest mistake
You tore my heart in two
Then stomped on it with hate

I was too helpless to leave
Even though I wanted to
I wanted to believe
That you would change

How stupid of me
To stay and stand by
Why didn't I see
That it was all one big lie

I'm gone for good now
It hasn't been easy
But I'm moving on slow
You were so sleazy

I found a good guy
He sure helped me see
That rather than cry
I had to work on me

You think you won
But you're so wrong
I'm moving on
It's not gonna take too long

I finally see
I'm better without you
My life is so breezy
Get a clue

You have her
But the good girl got away
Have fun, loser
'Cause away I'm gonna stay.
