Quotations Form the beginning,
to the end,
My heart will beat for you.
And when it stops,
The pain will stop,
...The sorrow will stop,
The love will stop,
But the hurting will begin,

Every time you say a word
I feel more than you mean
And sometimes the words that you don’t say
Are the ones that make a scene

I notice you are changing
Everything you say and do
And the worst thing that I notice
Is you don’t return “love you”

I say it to you with meaning
Hoping for your reply
But you just simply walk away
Or text a quick goodbye

The sad thing is you said it first
And told me more of this
You had me wrapped up in your words
A soft eternal bliss

You told me that you loved me
You knew just what to say
To bring me back into your arms
And make it so I couldn’t get away

But lately you don’t tell me
Anything from before
Are conversations are empty
And I’m left here wanting more

You say things that surprise me
And I don’t know how to reply
Am I supposed to take it lightly?
So I just answer with goodbye

And now I notice that I am
Just as bad as you
How am I supposed to love someone?
That doesn’t love me too.

So now I’m left with a decision
Do I stay and let it go on
Or do I let you go
Because it seems you’re already gone.

I was going through a rough patch with my BF, and i started to overthink everything. I didn't want to except the fact that it might have been time to let go...

Oh, this is so very sad! Indeed, an uncomfortable friendship, that was formerly wonderful, is very troubling. It is a very well written poem, and I applaud your ability to convey your emotions. Best of luck for you and your friend.
