What I never meant to be

I barely knew you from the start,
which for us was not that smart.
All I wanted to do is get to know you,
But you always decided not to.
I wish I could get through each day,
To not think about you is what I pray.
As I look in the mirror at my reflection,
I see myself going the wrong direction.
I have nothing left to say,
Yet I think of what it would be like everyday.
All you had to do was say no,
And now I just want to know:
If you will be there for me,
Or are you my worst enemy?

I honestly like your poem, but I'm trying to figure out who the protagonist is talking about. When a mirror is mentioned, I think it might be a relative, because relatives can look similar, so my mind leaps to mother or father. But the line "I barely knew you from the start" sounds like it isn't a relative, but I friend or class mate. Which is it? If you don't know, I think finding out would make this poem a lot stronger. Keep up the good work! If you could, would you re... (more »)
