What Happened To Us?

What happened to us?
We used to be so tight.
So tight that whoever was wrong-
The other one of us was right.
And it hurts sometimes just thinking-
What happened to us?
And it kills just thinking
How it all was such a rush.
How it went by so fast-
Just like a gust of wind.
It hurts for a moment,
And it hurts from within.
And after its long gone,
Gone over the bay,
You're still shivering
'Cause you wished it would have stayed.
It didn't really make any sense,
Since it hurt so bad.
And maybe being happy is better
Than being hurt and sad.
But you wouldn't let her win,
Wouldn't let her think you cared.
Wouldn't let her know that
You loved the love you shared.
So you would lie to yourself-
Pretend it didn't matter.
Pretend it was just a gust.
And you weren't up all night thinking,
What happened to us?
Then you say
Is it really worth it?
To still be her friend?
We were supposed to be friends
'Til the very end.
But ends are very sad,
And so are beginnings.
But maybe sad is good.
It became just like a gust of wind,
Just a gust of wind.
But when you're sitting there,
Wondering how you can be cold from within.
She wasn't who I thought she was-
Wasn't true at all.
But why is she all happy,
While I'm taking the fall?
It hurts,
It hurts so bad.
Why am I the only one
Who's really very sad?
She became fake and lied,
And I sat there,real, and cried.
I remember when I used to think,
I would rather have bad times with her and still be together,
Then be with someone else and call it forever.
What happened to us?,
I wonder.
Maybe she knows.
Or maybe she's not even thinking-
Or thinking about who knows.
But do I really want to know,
What happened to us,
Or am I just thinking,
I must,I must,I must.
What happened to us?
I am still very unsure,
But I'm scared to ask.
If I asked,
Would I be the stronger one,
Or the one that will never last?
And my biggest worry is-
What will she say?
Will she laugh at me and joke,
Or will she be like the wind over the bay?
There is a river between us,
I think she can feel it too.
I'm on one side,
And she's on the other.
And she laughing and yelling,
And I'm talking in but a mutter.
I wish I can go to her side,
And make everything not about him.
The only problem is,
I don't know how to swim.
I'm so confused now,
Because I don't know what I want.
I guess I really haven't given it
All that much thought.
I want to have a life,
But I want her to be in it.
Maybe I should just wait
Until the very last minute.
I know I'll be sorry,
If I don't say something fast.
But all I want to say is,
Why didn't we last?

I can relate to this perfectly.  I love your technique and how you put words together.  I feel that some of your work relates directly to me.  It's kinda scary how similiar the emotions are.  But amazing job on this piece.

This was so beautiful, you know how to capture a picture and put it into words. I also think this relates to everyone not just you, good job!

I like how you've written this as though the lines are thoughts running through your head. It also flows really well. Well done!

I like your "rant" style of poem. It really helps to express the emotions that one feels while going through this experience. Very good.

I enjoy the passion that was there. Usually if there's a long poem on the screan I move on to something else but this kept my attention. I've felt like this many times and I think I still do. So for conveying my emotions, carrying across your point, and having great language I give it a thumbs (both). Yes i have stalked your page and am reading everythings on it giving them comments (I'm not obssesed with you just your writing)

I wrote about this because it is something I went through, and something many others do too, as teenagers. Unfortunately, it's hard to go through, but it's part of growing up.
