Buddy thought he could get by me
Thought he was a player
An ace at the game he was playing
S*** I could have done it better
He messed up
Didn’t cover himself correctly
And you know I find it funny
Very funny at that because he did it right in the open
He should have known that I would see
But cheaters eventually get caught
Liars do to
Because they eventually forget the lie they told you
See they win a few games
Passover people a few times
But not all the time
Like the time they get caught cheating or in a lie
As he did
And I’m not going to cry
Or sit in pout
Or wine
Wishing it could be
That would be nothing but stupidity
And you know he’d probably say it wasn’t cheating and he wasn’t lying because we weren’t an official thing
Officially an item
Officially a couple
So basically with that fact if I were talking this kid
Some other kid
And him, it’s okay?
Because we aren’t an official thing
Official item
Official couple
I wonder if he would feel betrayed
Lied to
When I gave my word
When I said I would be there, I wouldn’t play games
When I said I’d be his
Now I would look like a w****
A hoe
A s***
Whatever
I’d be looked upon as doing wrong and being easy and things among that nature
Him he gets props from his friends
Because he’s a “player”
He’s the “S***” à smell like it to because he is a dirty boy, doing the deed with every other girl he meets
He probably thought I didn’t know about that
But I do
And Yes I said boy because that is how he acts
Like a two year old who doesn’t know how to tie his shoe
Real men don’t do immature things
They know how to act and behave
They don’t take advantage of girls
And play mind games
Everything he has ever told me went down the drain like a lost wedding ring
It’s a shame
What’s so hard about keeping your word
If you’re not going to keep it, or best yet if you don’t mean what you say
Why say it
It’s puzzling

i really like this. ur very talented! i have to say, the only thing is that I agree with MariaMarie about that last part.
Ur very headstrong in the entire poem, but in the last line it changes da mood. awesome job though!

I love this, and the meaning feelings behind it. Though can i give just a lil' advice? I would take out that last line- it's puzzling. It's kinda like the entire poem your so sure and then that last bit mentions puzzled and it changes the mood at last minute and can't be turned back.
