My Pain, Your Joy

Each day I'm moving forward
Thinking backward towards you
The way you cocked your head
At me and asked me what to do

I looked at her and wondered
‘Is that really who you want?’
That girl who was so beautiful
She set you up to hunt

But I set you up with her
And kept my 'just friends' creed
For all that time you smiled
My heart was beginning to bleed

So now that we're only pals
And you are with my friend
I have to let you go
Or it will be my end

Your smile is so happy
Although it’s not for me
Maybe if you wait awhile
My feelings you could see

As long as you are happy
I am happy too
My love who hurt me
This person is you

Forever my love
Forever my foe
You cannot know this joy
You cannot know this woe

And if you glance beyond her light
You will forever see
The one who was always there for you
Has always been me

Dear Milo!, I hate people who comment on other people's work with copy and paste comments. And I seem to recollect that you, my dear friend, said the Exact. Same. Thing. about my poem, Monsters, Bread and My Brother.
And to LuvMaiTrek: Sorry. I snapped. And I really do love your work. Forgive me?
