It's Not You It's Me

©

Published: May 2010

It only took the first two lines
to make the tears come out of my eyes,
they poured out and wouldn't stop.
What I read was a total shock.

You said "its not you it's me"
but it didn't take me long to see,
that it is me and not you,
and I am the reason we are through

You completely broke my heart
I never wanted us to part,
but now we are and I wonder why.
All I really want to do is cry.

My bleeding heart is more that hurt,
but I hide it by talking dirt.
I say things I don't mean.
and all I do is cause a big scene..

I may say I hate you but the truth is,
that I hate when you leave me like this,
slowly dying
and my insides crying.

I love you and nothing will ever change that,
but it hard to live with the fact,
that you're really gone,
and I have to move on.

I really miss the way I felt with you,
and anymore I don't know what to do.
I never wanted it to end,
because I love you more than you can imagine.

This poem remind me of the time I was with my boyfriend and I thought we was going to be together forever but he ended up breaking up just because of something he thought was going on and he was wrong. Today is 12/10/13 and I am soo over him but the fact is his girlfriend is not so not better than me but I wish them the best. And the odd part is he lied to me because when I was talking to him about us giving us another chance he told his sister to tell me that he don't want to be in a relationship but he in one right now with a girl that is not good looking at all.

This poem reminded me when my ex broke up < /3 with me a couple days before our '2-month anniversary', I still loved him and I thought I could never let go, it was un called for and unexpected and I hated him for that, he lied and hurt me, I don't love him but I don't hate him, I have let go and let God.
