Heartbreak Poem

I had lost hope before on love due to other rejections. But this girl is the one that told me to hold on and not give up, so I listened to her. I fell in love with her a few weeks later, and was about to send her a poem I wrote for her on valentines. With a friend, I found out she liked her neighbor and were planning to go out. It hurt that she didn't care about me and that I meant nothing to her. But what hurt the most was the fact I did a lot for her, but it was all for nothing. I still love her though

Heartbroken

© Greg Thung
My mind always told me to "Leave and advance",
But my heart told me that I still have a chance.

So I listened to my heart and gave it a shot,
It was a bad choice, now look at the misery and failure It brought.

I thought I'd have a chance, so I kept holding on,
But I know that the last ray of hope is gone.

Sadly, it was you, the girl I trusted the most,
Who left me feeling empty, just like a ghost.

Today, the little hope I had inside, you killed.
I don't know why you destroyed something you helped build.

I must have been crazy to even try,
Because all it did was crush me inside and make me cry.

And I cry only if there's too much to hide.
Like right now because I've got nothing inside.

It has been about 5 times I have tried,
And all those 5 times, I've been denied.

I remember the rejections, you bet I remember them.
So I just sit here and write about it in this poem.

I remember the tears I cried and I shed,
But the pain feels like I bled red instead.

You can taunt me all you want and call me a quitter,
But I give up 'cause I have been treated like litter.

I actually almost thought I'd get to be with her,
But now it tastes so bitter, I still get that shiver.

"Huh? What's that? you think I've been used?"
That don't bother me. To me that's normal news.

I got nothing to lose, nothing to gain.
I'm fed up of all this miserable pain.

So when someone tells me to try again,
Why should I bother? Nothing will change.

I know it will always be the same result:
"Mission failed" Another insane insult.

I thought this would work, not leave me hurt.
Now I'm on the ground beside the dirt.

With the help of a sneaky friend, I read what you typed.
Now all those words you said will come haunt me at night.

If you had given me one chance, I would be your lover.
But I didn't ask for you make me suffer.

When I'm tying to forget, as I lay on my bed,
Those heartbreaking moments rush back to my head.

It was paradise each time I saw your face,
But now I feel like I'm stranded in space.

It was on this "love road" that I travelled so far,
That left me like this: afraid and scarred.

That road gave me too much pain to bear,
So I've decided. From now I'm gonna be solitaire.

The road I'm going for will have nothing to fear.
And all the sorrow I have inside will all disappear.

Nothing can change my decision. I trust nobody no more.
I'm not gonna play around. Love is no sport.

So I'm gonna go back to the same old me.
Yes, the shy guy on the piano named Greg.T.

So, do me a favor and make your neighbor feel special, no cheating and stuff.
Don't treat him like me, 'cause one broken heart is enough.

The guy you want is a very lucky boy.
Just don't use him and treat him like a toy.

Good Luck. Forget me.
But remember I love you Kathy.

    Love is not a game it is random, That's what happened to me days ago. I've been through hell and back trying to understand whether to go left and right. And I realize I did it all without a fight. Sleepless nights with my heart broken saying ''why what's wrong with me'' but that question will become answerless. People tell me to move on but I cant cuz I'm still in love with you. you where the sunshine in my eyes but now when I see your face now its like a dark alley scary sad and hurtful. you destroyed something you bullied, but I still love you, and care for you, its gonna take me a long time to heal, but don't break another heart

    I like a guy who can't stop or get over another girl who broke his heart. Now I don't know what to do? I see the name in his eyes, I see when he's says he's okay but is a lie. I know I don't have a chance with his broken past but it's kind of not fair, but I guess that life. I knew the girl she was nice but she kind of broke him.

    I really like this boy. I still love him and can't get him out of my mind. I wish he could come back so I can tell him that I still love him. I wish he would have been upfront about the fact that he was just using me. I have a new boyfriend, but I still miss him. I wish he had told me that he didn't love me. Now I have him in my hear and can't forget him. All I want to do is to die to forget him. I wish he could fix my heart or take it with him so I wouldn't have to deal with my broken heart. Why did he wait until his name was burned on my heart? Even now, I hope Mario reads this and realizes I still love him.
