How love can hurt and leave you asking questions, especially when one seemingly loves more than the other.

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

Heartstrings Are Played Upon
It's becoming more evident
Much more obvious to me
I thought much more of you
Than you ever thought of me

Was this my biggest mistake
Letting myself think you cared
Was I just your marionette
With heartstrings open and bared

With me left here still thinking
What was false, what was true
So puzzling and so complex
Iím left to await another clue

On my heartstings you played
Each left with a loving memory
Yet I still have those questions
Do you ever think about me

Iím wondering why all the intrigue
Now why all of this mystery
Why am I left here hanging
Your the one that holds the key.

    I'm not happy that you were hurt, but I am happy to see that I'm not the only one that feels this way. I'm 20 years old and a student at JMU. I've never wrote poetry before, but lately, I've been really depressed about a girl from home who goes to school in vermont and seems to have forgotten all about me, not even giving me a thank you for the tulips i sent on valentine. The past few days I've found that writing and reading poetry such as this has helped me carry on, even though I'm feeling more and more like I don't want to. Thank you.

    I like the analogy if the violin and heartstrings as away of showing a broken heart. this poem should have a star as well.
