I have learned that sometimes you fall in love with people, who don't feel the same way about you. I have been in such a situation.

This poem was written for someone who I gave my trust, love and friendship to, only to have my heart broken, and my trust displaced. If you are ever in a similar situation, you know how it feels to be used.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Sad Love Poems

I Was Reminded
As we lay there quiet
I was reminded of all the reasons why I lust you
Your smile,
and the way it teased at me seductively
Your laugh,
and the way it tempted me
Your eyes,
and the way they seem to hypnotize me

As we sat there silent
I was reminded of all the reasons why I love you
Your smile,
and the way it brings such life into me
Your laugh,
and the way it makes everything okay
Your eyes,
and the way they seem to read my thoughts

As we stand here now
I am reminded of all the reasons why I hate you
Your smile,
and the way it confuses me
Your laugh,
and the way it seems to mock me
Your eyes,
and the way they can look into mine and not feel a thing

    Wow. Amazing. It really touched me. It made me think of every friendship I've been in and lost and the way everything they do can made you feel a different way once u feel differently about them. Great Job

    this poem is so true is doesnt just talk about the hings we are all feeling that are the good things about what we lost its the truth. how they can change and suddenly that loving laugh and smile becomes so empty. you inspired me.
  • Shannon
    This was a great poem! It not only spoke for it's self, but it also spoke for the people that have gone through the same things!I mean remembering the other persons smell, touch, when your no longer together is tough because sometimes you just don;t want to be reminded!

    Having your trust broken- having someone create a false friendship, only to find out the truth months later, is just plain horrible.
