  • Hey guys. I know it’s been a long while... But I just wanted to tell you guys that I’m having my first child! Due Dec 28th!

It Isnt, I Swear...

Just ignore them,
they arent there;
her hand isnt playing
with his thick brown hair...

Dont look at him...
Dont look at her...
Dont look at their faces
when they laugh together...

He isnt happy
and she isnt carefree;
Im not being stabbed in the back,
my heart is warm and beats.

She isnt thin and
his perfect type;
On his neck there isnt
the mark of a bite...

Oh no, I swear,
these arent tears;
the thought of him
isnt too much to bear...

He isnt holding her
the way he used to hold me;
she isnt looking up at him
and then smiling at me...

She isnt my best friend,
he wasnt my lover;
"Oh no, I dont mind,
you can do whatever."

Im not unloved
and in denial...
 My tears arent rivers
that run for miles...

Im perfectly fine,
why do you ask?
Its not like I wear
my smile as a mask...

i understand exactly how you feel as soon as my exboyfriend broke up with me one of my closest friends decided to go after him i hide the pain behind a fake smile but he never notices life can be so hard

I straight up told my friend how I felt and she left him alone afterwards. I just wasnt ready to handle him dating anyone, let alone her, and she respected that. True friends are like that. She was in the wrong. And to tell ya the truth? He cant notice what you try to hide. Tell him how you feel too. Life can be alot easier with some simple communication. Good luck ~Audrey

Thanks, alot of what I write is for those who have been through it, to show that they arent the only ones, and that they'll overcome whatever bad there is. Jealousy? Everyone feels it (: ~Audrey

thanks for reading and the comment :) ~Audrey

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
