Feeling Out Of Touch, Maybe I Feel Too Much

©

Published: June 2008

Hard to breathe
Weird to touch
Acting normal
Think too much

Trying hard
To figure out
Moving onward
Engulfed in doubt

Don't look back
Too much pain
And in fact
Nothing to gain

Filled with knots
Wasted time
A penny for my thoughts
I deserved a dime

Who's to say what's true
I never said I was right
Guess I never knew
It's not worth the fight

Thinking about before
Don't know who I was
Could have closed the door
And never been an "us"

Said you would stay
Promised you could
Chose to walk away
I knew you would

Everything was fine
Said we'd never part
Knew it was a line
But gave you my heart

I'll take the blame
I've always known
I played your game
You lost alone

I know you know
There's more to give
You were a stepping stone
I have a life to live

Hard to love
Weird to trust
Acting typical
Think it was lust

I just went through a break-up like 3 days ago, and I normally just think about stuff about what happened and stuff, but I really like to read poetry because it helps me think. I was really touched by this poem because it's basically me.

i was in a relationship with the love of my life, only to find out that he's cheating on me with the girl he stays with at the same flat. I then asked him about the issue and he admitted everything and he wants to end things with me because he loves that other girl. It pains me in such a way that I couldn't sleep at night and right now he wants nothing to do with me and I don't know what to do because I love him very much.

I just went through the same. I was in two years of a long distance relationship and found out he dated other girls and not only one. I once found out and talked to him about it but he called it off and wants to break up. I'm the blame because to him he said I'm not open minded at all. He wanted me to be open mind to cheating? I'm sure no one can do that. Well. That's the ugly truth. A person who loves you will never do things to try to hurt you. That's what I learnt.

These words deeply hurt me, because I feel guilty about a friend I left because of personal reasons. I just left without explanation, weirdly I'm the one who lost in the end. He moved on but I'm still stuck in regret. I think your words are exactly what he would say.
