This Just Isn't Fair
by Laura Rose Smith
My love for you is very strong.
I thought if you were mine, I couldn't go wrong.
At night I dream of you liking me,
Liking me for the things you apparently don't see.
You broke my heart and you made me cry.
You made me feel as if I wanted to die.
Why did you do this?
Didn't you feel bad?
Or do you find pleasure in making people sad?
I gave you my heart and you broke it in two.
Deep inside you knew my feelings for you were true.
But still you shrugged your shoulders, like you could care.
Finding people that have the same feelings as I is really really rare.
You couldn't give me a chance, not even one.
The last time I saw you, our friendship was done.
You wouldn't respond to my letter.
You wouldn't even say hi.
Nothing anyone could do could make me feel better.
All I could do was sit and sigh.
I hope you're aware of the sadness you've caused,
Of the frowns and hurt you've made.
I'd like to think that you've sat and paused
And understood that people aren't to be treated this way.
