Bcuz Of U

See this scar on my hand?
It's because of you it's there.
You made me feel like I was dreaming.
So I wanted to know if pain was still real.
Want to know a secret? It's real.
See my tears?
It's because of you they're there.
You were my everything.
Now you left me with nothing.
Nothing but my pain and sadness
You gave me so much hope that you were the one.
Then you took that all away.
See this poem?
It's because of you I'm writing this.
Maybe if you hadn't made all those empty promises, I'd still be with you.
See my pain?
It's because of you I feel this way

Wow . . . wow. That's so sad, and well-written. It seems hopeless and hopeful at the same time. Anyway, great job.

A very sad poem, and..even though I suppose I can gave me a fresh perspective. I think you did a good job.
