I'm another one of those teenagers who think they can write poems. This one is just is just about the actual me, the real me, the me that I have turned into being, and I'm sorry Brittany. I'm sorry for not loving you like I should have

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

The Bitter Truth
You say one thing
Yet you mean another
You try to be up front
While hiding beneath a cover

Why are you so selfish?
And why so ignorant?
What exactly does love mean to you
Or should I say, meant?

I've never known someone so fake
Someone who can't speak the truth
Someone so terribly insecure
Someone so cruel, someone like you

Why did you have to be like this
You started off quite fine
You would always say how much you care
I guess that was just another "line"

I just sit around and remember
Of how much I used to enjoy your name
And how I so dearly loved
To play your little game

But now finally I know
That you aren't at all what I thought
And its a damn shame too,
Because I really liked you a lot

    Your poem could not have been written much better. I had the exact same situation happen to me, and I know exactly how you feel. It is one of the worst feelings in the world to love someone that has changed into someone other than the person you fell in love with.
