Still Waiting, Because It's Not You

How could it be
That you say
I love you
But you go off
And do something
So cruel
I said it too
Did you even
Mean it
Or was it
Just something to say
To fill in the silence
To say goodbye
Without awkwardness
You said I was special
Gorgeous
In fact
You said
I was the most
Prettiest thing
You'd ever seen
You looked in my eyes
And I looked
Into yours
And was thinking
Wow
This guy is different
But were you thinking
Wow
This girl is
Retarded
And desperate
How could you do that to me
Did our relationship
Mean nothing
To you
I don't understand
Your feelings for me
Seemed so
Genuine
But no
You go off
And diss me
Like
I was worth
Nothing
To you
And started talking
About another girl
I was so shocked
I didn't know
How or what
To feel
Are you worth
My tears
Should I even give you
A second chance
I thought
Everything was so real
I thought you were different
But it just goes to show
ALL guys
Are the same
All heartless
Worthless
Jerks
But now i know
That's one guy
That isn't
Going to slay the dragon
And save me from my tower
So I'll sit
And wait
For my prince charming
To come save me
