My so-called boyfriend,
such a worthless and arogant a**hole you are.
why did i sit there and let you rip every caring and loving piece of my heart and soul away from me, how will i ever learn to trust anyone again.

My so-called best friend,
such a self-centered and fake snob you are.
you left me hanging onto the edge when i was struggling with my life, how will i ever learn to forgive and forget.

My so-called guy friends,
none of you with a heart or a mind or your own.
you guys believed every word he fed you and of course you STILL follow in his footsteps, man i do miss you guys, though.

Why am i still sitting here letting my life fly by, when i know my so-called true love is out there.
i guess i just feel so torn and worthless since you destroyed me.
how can i learn to live again.

Why am i still sitting here letting the time pass by, when i know my so-called true friends are out there.
i guess i just feel so betrayed and foolish.
how will i ever learn to trust you people, i can't go on like this.

I guess i will just do what i do best, suck it up and live my life. you know it is really hard to live the pretend/happy life.
i guess you could say its my SO-CALLED life.

I can definitely understand this one. It expresses your feelings well. Thank you, my dear.

thank you guys for responding to my poem, it means a lot! you guys wanna know what happened so, ok ill tell ya but you have to understand that i live in a very small town (500) and i have 22 kids in my class-wow huh?! ok it all started when i went out with one of my best friends, he totally changed in a month-didn't talk to me, giving me the cold shoulder, etc. anyways i tried talking to him cause i know if we broke up we wouldn't be friends anymore. that following week he dumped me the worst way imaginable(for me anyways). when we were going out i hooked my best friend and one of my guy friends up, i regret it sooo much. i don't even thinks she remembers me, i told her that i had been thinking of 'easy way outs', i started getting depression back times ten and it had a lot to do with what my ex was telling people. she didn't even seem to care, she didn't have a single clue to what i was going through. he turned all my guy friends against me, etc. he dumped me three days before x-mas and in front of everyone, i wont be specific, but it was horrible. i just gave up with everything, the thing is i can't shake things off so i guess this is how you feel when you don't let any feelings out. sorry to bore you guys, i got a little carried away! there is SO much more to this but i think you can imagine.

thanks for listening, i appreciate your guys' responses, & i hope you write me back!
