I want to be better than you.
I want to rub that in your face.

I am so tired of feelings like I am nothing;
and you don't even know what you do.
Me and you just aren't in the same place.

It's not right for me to feel this way.
This feeling does not help me.

I'm hurt, yet, I'm sad I feel bitterness towards
you every day.
I only wish you could see...

See that my heart is being torn and ripped out of my body.
My heart is left for the weak to feed off of.

I don't, when I'm around you, want to be a nobody.
I've let you know that I have had enough.

Even with my broken heart and being so bitter.
I'll forgive you and let go of the past.

Our love will not whither.
Because you say we will last.

The author's comments:
This poem is very special to me. It shows the different sides people can have. The poem is honest and cruel all at the same time. I feel so many people have a bitterness towards someone and that hinders them. I would love to see that bitterness let go and hopefully this poem will help.
