He's the one I call in the middle of the night. He's the one who makes everything alright. He loves me with no regret...I just haven't found him yet.


All it took was two months and eight days
For me to fall in love and you to walk away
Day one, you told me you thought I was cute
That was when I began to like you
You asked me out and I said okay
We held hands that entire day
Day seven, we’d been together for a week
And still, people couldn’t believe
That a guy like you was with a girl like me
They said that I was out of your league
Day fourteen, I began to feel
Something that was really real
It was only two weeks but that was enough
To make me start to fall in love
Day twenty-one, you walked me to class
You kissed me as you held my hand
And right before you turned to leave
You said three special words to me
I believed that what you said was true
So I said “I love you too”
Day twenty-eight, a month has passed
But still we have managed to last
I’ve never been this happy before
I’m so grateful that I’m yours
Day thirty-five, you’re acting strange
Something about you is starting to change
You’re questioning everything I do
Wanting to know where I’m at and with who
Every moment of every day
You’re questioning my life away
My friends tell me you’re acting obsessive
But I tell them you’re just being protective
Day forty-two, you’re acting normal again
But soon enough you’re asking “Where have you been?”
I’ve never told a lie to you
All I do is tell you the truth
So is there any possible way
For you trust me and what I say?
Day forty-nine, things are getting better
You and I are still strong and happy together
You haven’t questioned me in a week
This marks the end of your obsessive streak
I’m really happy it’s over too
Cause I’m so madly in love with you
Day fifty-six, you tell me something sweet
You tell me that you’re in love with me
Hearing those words makes me melt
I’m feeling things I’ve never felt
My friends say not to trust you though
But I know things that they don’t know
I know you better than I know myself
And I know you love me, I can tell
Day sixty-three, a rumor spreads
I hear you’re cheating on me from one of my friends
I don’t believe it so I go and ask you
You say you’d never do that and I know it’s true
People are just trying to break us up
They’re just jealous because we’re so in love
Day sixty-eight, some drama occurs
Another guy likes me so he tries to flirt
I tell you what happened right away
But “I don’t care” is all you say
Later that day, we pass by your ex
She utters something nasty under her breath
I turn to you but you just laugh it off
You don’t try to defend me at all
That night you text me saying we need to talk
So I dial in your number but you don’t answer my call
You text me that we’ll talk in the morning
I don’t sleep that night because I’m too worried
Day sixty-nine, I approach you at school
You’re in front of your friends so you try to act cool
You pull me aside and I look into your eyes
But they’re too cold for me to recognize
You’ve never looked this way before
Then you tell me you can’t do this anymore
You say that’s it’s not working out
I want to cry and scream and shout
But I know I can’t, not now, not here
So instead I nod and blink back the tears
You walk away from everything we had
I’m not sure whether to be angry or sad
Later that day when I pass you by
I see you kissing your ex and I begin to cry
That is when the truth comes out
And I realize what you’re all about
The rumor was true, you cheated on me
And you let me defend you so foolishly
My friends had been right all along
All this time I’d been so wrong
I was blinded by my love for you
Much too blind to see the truth
I was just a part of your cruel, heartless game
And now I’ll never be the same
You were playing me right from the start
And in the end you broke my heart
I cried my eyes out for three days straight
You’re lies and secrets brought about my fate
Now you’re with her and I’m alone
I hate it but I still want you as my own
Because all it took was two months and eight days
For me to fall in love and you to walk away


The author's comments:
This poem was inspired by a relationship that I was just recently in. If you read my EC+AM=4ever stories, you'll know that I haven't posted any new chapters in a very long time. The reason for that is because I was so wrapped up in this relationship that I stopped writing completely. But now that it's over, I'm determined to start writing again. Thanks for reading

Yeah, I read it. It's up today! I love how you twisted this seemingly unimportant character into the potential of a tidal wave. It can only be made better by more :)

Three can keep a secret if two of them are dead. Benjamin Franklin

It had maybe taken him two months and eight days to hurt you, but it has only taken you 102 verses to proove me once again that you are the most talented girl in this whole website. I guess that you're the only person that I know that could turn such a horrible episode to a wonderful poem. Great job, keep writingno matter what. He maybe broke your heart, but he will never get that gift away from you. All you have to do is to be strong. BTW, It would be so amazing if Evalynne had the same story, so you really will be able to connect with your character... well I think :D
