Why can’t you see
how much you mean to me?

In that time of hurt,
all you could do was smirk.
I gave you what I could,
but you used it for your own good.

You took advantage,
and left me to manage.
Through the dark times,
you had me crying sometimes.

Apparently, I meant nothing to you,
and now I’m not quite sure what to do.
It’s hard for me to give up and move on,
because I know you’ll be gone.

You could have left me with a reason,
but you didn’t, during my birthday season.
I tried to talk to you,
but you basically said, “Screw you.”

You hurt me from the inside – out,
and now I’m full of doubt.
You played with my heart,
and now I want to tear yours apart.

It’s like you stabbed me with a knife,
now I’m glad to be out of your life.
Farewell to you,
I hope you got the clue.

Why couldn’t you see,
how much you meant to me?

I wrote this poem shortly after my boyfriend of 1 year broke up with me. i sorta fell into a depression. it was horrible. what this poem is saying is how when i was hurting he laughed and told people i was a freak etc. he broke up with me 3 days after my birthday. thats what i meant when i said, "You could have left me with a reason,
but you didn’t, during my birthday season." he trested me like a rag doll and he threw me to the dogs when he was tired of me. i thought i loved him. I hope this poem tells you that love isn't an easy thing. it can be good but also very destructive at times.
