Smiling But Dying

default ©

Published: September 2013

Today as I went home,
even if I'm with my friends, I feel so alone
thinking of you made me feel so blue,
for you love her, and I'm in love with you

this heartache makes me want to cry
but instead of tears, I express it with a sigh
for I don't want them to see
that I'm crying, because I'm falling for you badly

"it's just a little crush,"  that's what I say
but it's making a big hole when I see you every day
for when I follow your stare, it leads to her
and sometimes, I feel like tears are going to make my vision blur

I know it's pathetic, but when you talk to me
I feel so pleased and happy
but still, I know that you're not going to love me
'cause your heart belongs to her completely

you're just a fantasy
and you'll never love me in reality
I know that someday you're just going to be a memory,
that I will remember when I'm lonely

but someday is not yet today
it still is far, far away
but I wish you'll notice anyway,
that my heart is breaking
and even though I'm smiling
just look in my eyes
and you'll see that I'm dying

I have a crush on my brother's friend, but he has a girlfriend. I see him every day at school, and I just want to cry.

My crush plays with my feelings. He refuses to talk to me in front of others but talks to me when he's by himself. He went to a party with other girls, and I am scared that he might choose them over me. I don't know why he's ashamed of me. It hurts so much I wish I could be with him as I'm graduating college soon and he won't see me anymore. I have to tell him before it's too late. I'm dying inside.

I have a crush on this girl and she said she loved me. We dated for a day, but then she broke it off because she didn't want to break my heart. But then one month later she dates someone she was trying to get over and who lives an hour away, and I just don't know what to do because it hurts me every time I see her, but it makes me so happy inside talking to her. I want to tell her how I feel (that I'm heartbroken) but I don't want to make her feel bad about it.

I have a crush on her. I have for like 6 months, and when I finally talk to her, she says she has a boyfriend and keeps talking about him. It kills me!

I was perusing various topics of various poems, looking with increasing anxiety for one I could use for my English paper, when I stumbled across this one. My teacher "strongly" suggests we choose a topic we care strongly about, and I'd say I'm fairly chill on most things and don't particularly care to the extreme on many things, but recently a girl I liked ended up falling for another guy... and it just hurt a lot. So here we are. This poem hits the feelings. I hate and love it.

You really wrote my mind. But now I am trying to forget him. Only if guys knew how we felt

Guys know how you girls feel, I'm a guy, and that poem, just described me. Before I read this poem, my thought was "Only if girls knew how we felt."

Wow, you took everything that I was feeling and wrote it down on paper:) I have a crush on this guy, just a tiny little crush, but I wish I didn't, I have never really been one to be asked out or be recognized by guys and so like usual got my heart broken again, without him realizing. I just wish I was much more outgoing and could step out of my shell, then maybe I will be noticed by guys and will not feel so alone.
