It seems as though you quite enjoy
The sound of my heart breaking
You could care less
It doesn't hurt you
Who am I anyway?
Just a mistake you made.
"I shouldn't have told her I loved her" You think
"I shouldn't have told her I cared"
Well, now that you've done it
You think there's no turning back
But yet you still mislead me
You still allow those words
To pass through your lips
You must think I'm stupid
You must think I'm gullible
I know more of what's going on
Than you give me credit for
And what will I do with this shattered heart of mine
After you've finally got up enough nerve to tell me
"I feel nothing for you,
"I haven't in weeks"
What will I do when I can no longer
Feel your embrace?
What will I do when I can no longer
Look in your eyes.
You made it obvious tonight
You don't want me
You don't love me
Yet you insist on tagging me along
"Putting up with me" as you might put it
When I put you on a pedistal
I gave you the one thing I never let anyone have...
My heart.
And now you throw it away
Like it was nothing
But what do you care?
What the hell do you care?
That's just it, you don't.
You no longer need me around
I've served my purpose in fullfilling a few weeks of your mundane life.
And now you've grown tired of me
Weary of all I have to offer
So just toss me in a pile with the rest of your "garbage"
Throw me into yet another heart ache
I hope you've enjoyed listening
To the sound of my heart breaking.....
"I should have known" I tell myself repeatedly...
"I should have known....."

This has made me think about something I have been thinking about..haha..for the last year or so...when we fall in love with someone that doesn't really want to fall in love with us we are actually the one that is responsible for our own heartbreaking.  I'm not trying to be mean but the woman I fell in love with didn't ask me to fall in love with her..I somehow created all those feelings inside my heart...falling in love happens after we open our eyes to see their good points or their beauty...I can say I am falling in love with Lena...but is Lena falling in love with me?  If she is life is beautiful...if not the only easy way out is for me not to give my heart to someone that doesn't want it.   Does anybody else have any opinions about this before I go on forever.  And sorrow I truly sympathize with you..I have fallen in love all by myself about four times in the last four months...sad but true.  James

James.....I totally agree with you. There have been many a times I fell in love only to not have it returned. But in all actuality, this poem is about someone who first told this person they loved them, and showed them, just to fall out of love with them, but not have the guts to tell them that they had. So they just end up fooling this poor soul into thinking they still love them (or so they thought), which just ended up hurting this person more than if they'd let them go....it's very complicated.LOL...but then again, love is like that!
