You and I

You and I were the perfect match. You and I were the perfect catch. You and I used to have something. You and I are now nothing!

I can see passed your plastic looks. I can always learn from books. I won’t get caught up in your hooks. I know how you are, and I’ll never go that far. I’m the one who sets the par.

I used to think you were funny. Now I find you annoying. I used to say, “You’re so sweet.” Now I feel that we’re incomplete. I used to take you out to lunch. Now I feel like we talk too much. I used to love spending time with you. Now I realize there’s nothing we can do.

You and I were the perfect match. You and I were the perfect catch. You and I used to have something. You and I are now nothing!

You need to stop this lie. You need to check yourself and ask why, you like to make all the girls cry. You know where you’ve come from. You should stop playing so dumb. You need to see what you’ve become.

You used to be so understanding. Now you’ve become undermining. You used to think I was cute, now you only have disputes. You used to be so sweet. Now you see my defeat. You used to love being with me. Now you are stuck up a tree.

You and I were the perfect match. You and I were the perfect catch. You and I used to have something. You and I are now nothing!

I feel like there’s nowhere left to go. I feel like it’s all a big show. I feel like we both know. I didn’t see myself here five years ago. I never thought my self esteem could ever go that low. I never thought I could hate you so.

You wore a good mask, so you could accomplish your task. You knew all the right questions to ask. While you hid under the flask. You did this to yourself, You put me on a shelf. You know how good you had it, now you try to kick the habit.

    So sad, to lose so much and have so little, brighter days lie ahead once you remove all of your written words that block and cloud this vision you have so well displayed by decision.
    Just an excellent write. Much was felt in your poetry.

  • Thank you. I appreciate the feedback!

    Beautiful poem… yeh, love does presents us to each other as a beautiful peace of art, and once it’s gone all that’s left is a black and white, rough image…

  • Yeah, Love stinks! LOL
