the main points of hurting

by apexpredator

she asked if it was okay a million times

i lied

i lied to her

i told her to ask you out i told her it was okay i told her you'd say yes

and you did

because she's prettier, and lovelier, and kinder than i am

i wish i wasn't so stupid

i wish i had done it before she did

and now if i find a word to rhyme with you

it has to rhyme with her name too

and coming clean

made me feel worse than leaving it to brew

and you're going to love going on that date

with the one person i could never learn to hate


having a sinking feeling that someone does not like you back does not take away the pain when it's confirmed


telling your best friend it's okay to ask out the girl you've fallen for does not automatically make it okay

it still hurts

it still hurts and when it hurts it cuts and when it cuts it bleeds and pours


i wish i was yours

it's never hurt this much before

but you opened up my heart and climbed inside and then left without warning me

you left a hole

you carved out your space and left it empty

you left a hole

and when you left, you were whole

and i wasn't

and it doesn't excuse my actions. i should have told you

i should have told you

but i didn't

and i won't

because i know you're happy

the look on your face

from across the room i knew you'd say yes before you said it

and i acted happy for you

you're lovely together. you really are

but i still cried

i still cried for ten minutes in the bathroom of a bar

i'm in too deep and i've gone too far

but you're lovely together. you are.

What happened to you is sad. But the creative force that grew from your hurt has been a gift to the world. Be cause you wrote a beautiful poem here. It was so compelling and powerful. It was an age old classic dilemma. You did a beautiful job describing it.

I just want to write something because I felt too much everything you wrote but I can't. Right now I want to cry too. It's not fair... but you have to learn to forget him. Not as a person but as a person you love and want to be with. I tried that. I fell in love with the wrong person and now I'm always constantly trying to tell myself "We're just friends" cause that's how he sees me.
