I Donít Understand

You told me I was beautiful,
As you kissed my cheek.
You told me I was different,
And my heart became weak.
You told me you loved me,
As your hand slid up my thigh.
And before I knew it
I began to cry.

It happened so fast,
I had no time to think.
I fell in love.
You were my missing link.

Everything was perfect
Until I became afraid.
I realized I loved you,
And I didnít want you to go away.

I tried to make you happy,
I did all that I could.
But true love and commitment
Is something you never understood.

You gave me every excuse
As to why you couldnít love.
But all I could think of
Was how you were the one.

Iíve known for some time now
How your love just disappeared.
And still I waited until you told me.
Until then, I lived in fear.

You said you only wanted to be friends,
A line Iíve used before.
You said you still loved me,
But I wasnít what youíve been looking for.

That night I cried my tears dry,
As you tossed my heart aside.
And yet you still said
How I was the perfect kind.

The ones that seem so right always end so wrong...this was heartfelt and pain filled.  Well written, thank you for sharing this.

Hi
I can very well relate to this. Some things really strange happened and everything came crashing down. I really don't know how I'll survive my future days without her.

Sincerely

Thanks for your comments. What hurts most is that he allowed me to hold on to a fairy tale when all along he knew that the reality was my nightmare...
