Living life in a dream...
It was secure, but unreal
If loveís shadows were as sweet as they were
I couldnít comprehend how sweet
Actually possessing it would be

Thatís what I thought yesterday
Today, I took control
For the first time in my life
I stopped dreaming
Instead of doing

I made it known
That I was in love
I told him the truth
That I would sell my soul
For a kind word from him

I guess I wasnít deserving of him
The day wore on
And nothing happened
Until...
He told my friend
ďI donít like herĒ
And gave the poem back

Rejection

I thought I had gone mad
I nearly threw myself
From my second-story window
Because I knew the pain from that
Was nothing compared
To the pain in my heart

The pain is still there
It will never leave
I no longer live in a dream
I shattered it
And I
f
   e
     l
       l into reality
And I landed...

Hard

Do I regret it?
Iím still asking myself
Still dazed from the fall, I write this
I donít regret taking control
Iíll never play ďwhat ifĒ again
But I regret how it turned out...

No more dreaming

I guess it wasnít meant to be
But now, at least I know

THIS IS AN AMAZING POEM!!!!!! To say the very least. I remember when I have felt this same way (many a times, oh so many times), but not once did I have the strength to realize I could move on, until it was too late. I've learned a lot of lessons in my life, and this was one I had to learn the hardest way of all. You have a finely tuned talent, a way to express others feelings (along with your own) through your poetry. Keep it up! :P

~Lovebug...

wow, this was fantastic!! i really liked both pieces that you wrote, the one before telling him how you felt and this one. i know right now it seems like the end of the world, but I am glad to see that you don't regret telling him the truth. i have been in this situation before, and i know it hurts like hell. we can say hell in this right? through writing we are able to heal, so it is my hope that you will work this out through your beautiful poetry. you have a gift for words. take care.

LoveBug, The reality is this was too bitterly real. I feel for you, I've been there, it happens from the other side too.
Sometimes we give into our emotions, when we get the sign. The problem is people often think that not telling how they really feel about you early will hurt you, so they wait and  make it worse. People generally are cowards when it comes  to confronting anothers emotions, or they are just decietfull.
Get up brush yourself off... don't even look back  its  not worth you breath.

Lovebug,
  You write so maturely about the rejection, it's almost scary. At your age, I never would have admitted this to anyone. And you express it so well in this very heartfelt but well written poem.
Very well done, lovebug.
I'm so proud of you
Liz

The important part is you followed your feelings...this time they took you to the wrong place...but these are the same feelings that will sooner or later take you to the right place.  I loved reading this poem and I'm sorry it didn't work out for you.  James

Hi, you beetle fan!
Way to go.......
I salute your honesty, and your expressive nature...

There are many fish in the sea!  But somehow (and I think it must be the polution), most of them are mutated, and lack any kind of sense!  

That was mean, right?  I know..... but I myself am jinxed when it comes to love.... but, hey, I know there are a lot of good guys out there, right under our noses (let me see.......hmmmmmm.... all I see is my cat   )

Have fun with your friends, enjoy what you have, and things will be your way lovebug...

Been there, it hurts, I know. Think of it this way though: are you any worse off now than before you asked? You still dont have a date with him. At least now you arent ignorant of his feelings and you can try getting over him. It will really only get better from here. And it isnt you that doesnt deserve him, he is just ignorant of the person you really are.
Course, I also know that in spirit you wont believe a thing I am saying now, I know I didnt when people were saying the same things to me, but you must try.
Oh, great free verse too
