On the Rebound

It hurt to know that you didnít really like me
Did you really see beauty
In me and my personality?
Or was it just another ploy to get my cookie

You used to end every text with ďBeautifulĒ
Now I realize that you only wanted the wrong things from me...
You only gave me a sample
Of what you gave her
I cry these hazel
Eyes of mine
Every time
I think about what could have happened
If I hadnít shown her proof....

Did you know we were friends?
Did you know that you almost destroyed that?
You wouldíve sat there and let our friendship turn to fragments
You wouldíve watched it blow up in oblivion
Just so you could still keep her
And not be the one she was mad at

You two broke up
Then you got with me
While we were together
You got back with her
O somebody, tell me what I did so wrong
To allow you to not only
Take away my dignity and integrity
But for you to hurt her like that
By playing the player
Why in Godís name would you do that,
You disgusting creature!?

When I found out
That you were with her while with me
I was hurt
More than anyone can imagine
Though I didnít let it show
I felt like worthless, humiliated dirt

But what really got me angry
Was that you lied
And pretended like you cared
When all you wanted to do was stick your thing inside
I asked you who you wanted to be with
Your answer was if things didnít work out between you two
That you and me could be with one another
But if you two did pull through
As a couple you would have to say goodbye
To us
This is the one thing that you told me
That Iím sure of wasnít a lie
And that in itself is one of the main reasons why I cry

All throughout our relationship
You were very promiscuous and smitten
Of course Iím only human
A naive, insecure teenage girl at that
You played on my emotions
With flattery and compliments....
Was it all true?
Or was it just more lies from you?

I broke it off
I was not going to be the other woman
The one in the closet
I refused with all my heart
To be your backside girl
And then for you to ignore
Me as soon as someone walks in the door

But when she found out
She didnít believe me
I told you to tell her
That we had been together
But you denied the whole thing
I was so upset that I started shouting and cursing
Profanities and unmentionables at you
And you deserved every one of them too

I made one thing clear that day
To her and to you
For me to go out
With a friendís boyfriend or ex
Is not what Iím about
Iíd rather be hurt a hundred times
By every man on this planet
Than to take someone who isnít mine
That belongs to a friend

Even though you guys are still together to this day
Iíve moved on after time
I still donít think you deserve her
But thatís her choice, not mine
Even though it took me a while to figure it out
I realize that I deserve somebody
Whoís made just for me
And fits my own perfect design

[ I wrote this poem because I hope it'll help other girls know that they're not the only ones out there... i remember how it felt to b the girl on the rebound so i know how much it can hurt.... tell me what you think   ]

Looking back through the old posts and I'm thinking, what a gem this one is!! Honoured that it means so much to you.
