Our Love

I don't know how you pulled me in. 

I told myself I wouldn't fall in love again, 

but with you it was different. 


No one would have guessed, 

that you and me would have been together. 

Looking back, I wouldn't have either. 


Back then you were with her. 

You guys seemed so happy at first, 

but after a while your smile seemed rehearsed.  


I heard she cheated on you. 

Now you envy when I talk to another male, 

I see your jealousy.


I can sense when you don't trust me. 

It makes me feel horrible. 

I do feel deplorable.


But that’s what love does to a person. 

It makes you feel unbelievable, 

then it tears you down to nothing, it's deceivable.  


And when someone else comes along,

they have to pick up the pieces. 

That’s what I'm doing, just picking up.


Don't feel bad for me. 

I want to do this. 

I want him to feel whole again. 


I want to show him that I'm not like her. 

I am here to make him the best person he can be. 

I want to be with him every step of the way to his success. 


Just know cheating is something I'd never do. 

I hope you feel the same way too, 

Because I just love you.

My relationship with my boyfriend is what inspired me to write this poem. I hope people can read this and see how people can be tore down by another person and how it effects them in the future.
