Break Up

It keeps replaying in my mind
Over and over and over

I didn’t want to do it
I still liked you
I almost bailed, at least 10 times
“I can’t do it”

But my friends helped me
They knew what had to be done
They knew you were being a jerk
You didn’t care

Even though you hurt me
I didn’t want to cause you pain
If I had known you’d be so heartless
I wouldn’t have worried

But the truth is the truth
I still like you
No matter how many times I say otherwise
I really do

But you’ve been ignoring me
You like another girl
So I did what I had to do
I didn’t want to date a guy who didn’t like me

It may have hurt
But I know now it was the right choice
And someday I’ll get over you
Hopefully it’ll be soon

I really like your poem, how it speaks from the heart. It sounds really personal, and I like how you never say that you're talking about a break-up in the poem, but that's what it's titled. It's a great poem! :)
