    I Used To Love Him

    From the moment I saw him- There was this chemistry-
    And though I tried to deny my history-
    Of falling in love at first sight-
    I knew I had to have him if only for one night-
    But one night turns into two, three, then four-
    And although we were only friends- Friends with benefits-
    It never was to become a relationship-
    But feelings came into play-My heart was in it to stay-
    Regardless of how you felt or what you had to say-
    I used to love him, and he was just to be a friend-
    But how do you tell a heart to pretend?
    Sunrise, my thoughts are of you-
    Sunset, I’m trying to forget-
    But as darkness fall, my thoughts surround and consume
    me to the point where I can’t sleep-
    Leaving my mind in a turbulent heap-
    While putting my body into a cold sweat-
    Images of pleasures spent-
    From passion that was heaven sent-
    Being with you was like a cleansing of my soul-
    Making me feel complete and whole-
    From all the years of emotional turmoil-
    Caused by being rejected and unappreciated-
    From all the times my love was not reciprocated-
    I used to love him, and he was just to be a friend-
    But how do you tell a heart to pretend?-
    We had a fight that last night-Everything happened so fast-
    As anger grew, emotions flew-
    From everything that happened in our past-
    I screamed he cursed-My feelings just burst, to the surface-
    I told him that I loved him-He said he didn‘t care-
    His heart was not into it- To love me he couldn’t do it-
    He only wanted the benefit-No longer the friendship-
    I couldn’t comprehend it, on why he wanted to end it-
    Somehow I am to blame-
    I put my feelings into it- Now our friendship won’t be the same-
    Being with him was an experiment that I will never regret-
    But it’s going to take my heart a minute to forget-
    I used to love him, and he was just to be a friend-
    But how do you tell a heart to pretend?-

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.
