"Katniss, the girl who was on fire."

Valentine's Day
Is right around the corner.
It hurts,
Thinking about spending
That day without you.

You claim
To not like me
Like that.
So why do you flirt?

I've tried to just
Be your friend.
But it's wearing me out.
All the pretending.
You know
I love you,
Yet you chose to play these games.

We could have
Something real.
I can tell.
I know I am
Probably wrong.
But can you give me a chance?

I only ask for a chance.
To be loved
By you.
By you.

I only ask for a chance.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem after breaking up with my boyfriend of 10 months. There was more to the breakup then what I told him. The truth is that I fell in love with his best friend, who's my best guy friend. This other guy doesn't like me, yet I can't seem to let go. I don't know if any one's going to really get anything from this, but I hope you like it!
