Past .vs. Future

The star is within my grasp.
Why can't I just reach up and pull it down?
Why must the future mock the past?
The smile on my face has turned to a frown.
I want to hear him call my name.
Wish he'd look at me and smile.
That girl before, that's who I blame.
We only talk once and a while.
Why do I feel like this today?
Is it necessary to even start liking him?
Why do I think about him and let my heart fray?
My thoughts are racing...Should I hate them?
Would it be better to remember or forget?
The things that were thought or what wasn't said.
Heaven forget that our weary eyes ever met.
I wish that after finding you, I was struck dead.
The torture in my head drives me to pain.
You walk like you own the world.
Am I crazy for wanting you so much, or vain?
My heart is not broken, only torn.
Yeah, I keep rambling on and on.
You're probably bored of reading my thoughts.
I wish that my dreams were answered not by the morning's dawn.
I'm not sad, nor regretful, I won't even say distraught.
All I can, unfortunately, say is-
Oh, how my heart called for you
and what do you do?
You push me away
and let our friendship fray.
Goodbye now, continue to doze,
because that door is no longer open-
It is now closed.

I enjoyed this poem because it describes the past and the future of a friendship. They used to be friends and not so much anymore,"wishing he look at me and smile." He doesn't want friendship when he "push me away and let our friendship fray." The author gave up and let the door close on the friendship.

I had no choice. It's hard to be pushed away so many times. I couldn't take it anymore. But, it's his loss. =)

I enjoyed the way you started your poem. It really pulls in your readers. The whole idea of the poem was complex yet simple and you described everything wonderfully.
