Betrayed with a Kiss

July 24, 2011
You’re my boyfriend, the one I count on
The one that I know is always there
But he’s the love of my life,
And you just don’t, can’t compare

And I swear I didn’t mean to fall in love,
It wasn’t my wish

And I know I just betrayed you,
With something as simple as a kiss

The kiss I gave him in secret,
The one I made sure no one could see
And the kiss I gave you afterwards,
When you told me we were meant to be

And at the moment I couldn’t tell you
That I had fallen for someone else
That someone had stolen my heart from you,
And was keeping it for himself

But I’m telling you now that it’s over,
And I’m sorry this is the way that it has to end
And I really don’t want to say, the stupid cliché,
But I hope we can always be friends

Please look at me when I talk to you,
Even though I know you must hate me
But I really did have feelings for you,
And I know that you just can’t see

That I never meant to hurt you,
But I just can’t help how I feel
And I hope that you understand, I can’t pass up true love,
Something that’s rarely ever real.

I really like this poem! I liked when you said "please look at me when I talk to you" it kind of brought the poem back to reality ya know? But anyway I hope everything worked out in your situtation! Keep writing! :)
