Just some stuff I came across when researching for English.
Some of the saddest pieces of literature I’ve ever read. Ever.
I Know that you Don’t Feel for Me – Nicholas Gordon
I know that you don’t feel for me
The way I feel for you.
We’re good friends, I value that,
There’s nothing you need do.
But as a friend I need to tell you
What is in my heart.
An unsaid truth is like a wall,
Keeping us apart.
My love for you will go nowhere,
Will just remain with me.
I’ll hold it in my quiet arms
And feel it constantly.
Union Square – Unknown
With the man I love who loves me not,
I walked in the street-lamps’ flare;
We watched the world go home that night
In a flood through Union Square.
I leaned to catch the words he said
That were light as a snowflake falling;
Ah well that he never leaned to hear
The words my heart was calling.
And on we walked and on we walked
Past the fiery lights of the picture shows–
Where the girls with thirsty eyes go by
On the errand each man knows.
And on we walked and on we walked,
At the door at last we said good-bye;
I knew by his smile he had not heard
My heart’s unuttered cry.
With the man I love who loves me not
I walked in the street-lamps’ flare–
But oh, the girls who can ask for love
In the lights of Union Square.
~ Sad and cold. Makes me want to just go to this girl and wrap her in my Snuggie and tell her that everything’s going to be okay.
Awkward Friendship – Youngbountygirl
The boys I’m mostly comfortable with
Are boys who are friends
Who don’t like me anymore
Then their buddies till the end
If one guy liked me
And I liked him
I would be shy for a while
Then we’ll glow like gems
If a boy likes me
But I don’t like him
No more then friends
Being with him feels dim
I get awkward
It’s not that I want him away
I just don’t feel trusting
I know he wants his way
I know he wants to win me
I know he’ll try to impress me
I’m afraid he’ll try
To take advantage of my meekness
I don’t want a guy I don’t like
As a friend to impress me
I just want him to be my friend
But what he’ll do will be the same
That boy will try to win me
I will continually walk away
From what we can’t be
Our contact is very swaying
This will continue until he gets over me
I guess that may take a while
If I have to leave I will
I’ll go far to the nearest hill
~ She seems like she’s scared of love.
Electric Love Letter ~ Glenn McCary
Things were going so well everything was just fine
unless I’ve been mistakenly blind there have been
countless times when you’ve told me that you loved me
and like a fool I believed you until that dreadful day that
I received that letter I swear upon my life that letter has
placed a curse blended together from a mixture of anger,
confusion, indecision and possibly boredom however it still
haunts me to this day how could she do this to me? what have
I done? I thought I was her knight in shining armor I thought I
was the piece that completed her puzzle I swear that ever since
I read that letter my life hasn’t been the same at the point in time
that I was reading this letter I thought that I was gonna puke
my heart out because my throat was swelling up I couldn’t help it
I was getting all choked up inside and like lightning in a thunderstorm
she shocked me forever paralyzing me you’d think that the least she
could do was be my wheel chair but unfortunately I was left without support
my eyes are still sore from the painful and nearly fatal electrocution they’ve
had to endure no matter how hard I try to fight it I can’t deny the fact
that I will forever be scarred I can’t believe that I’ve lost the battle to making
this relationship work I can barely make sense of it all because it all happened
in a blur so fast that I didn’t even have time to comprehend it and compared to a
calculus class the students have it easy because I still haven’t solved my equations
the deadline says they are due tomorrow I might as well accept my failure with pride
because I’ll never be able to find the answers for they are buried deep under the sand
in the scorching hot deserts of Egypt so deep that not even a metal detector could find
them she was one of those diamonds that were rare and hard to find I was lucky enough to
be able to enjoy all of the rewarding benefits of her love ‘Darling we were engaged by an unbreakable romantic bond but somehow some way you found a way to sever it with the blades of your eyes; baby I could never hate you it’s just your harmful ways that I despise.’
~ What a jeeeerrrrkkkkk. I sorta wanna track this guys’s IP address and go to his house and ask him for the address of this chick and then hunt her down and slap her in the face.
I’m Fine Alone ~ Skedaddler
I don’t care;
No I don’t care.
I watch her fingers
Trail on his sleeve.
My heart is whole
Yes, it’s not breaking.
He kisses her softly
She speaks his name.
And I’m not crying,
No I’m not crying
I see her smiling
Up at him.
And I’m not dying inside,
No I’m alive.
As she says she loves him
And he holds her close.
And I don’t love her
No, I can’t love her.
As the sunlight makes
A wave across her hair.
No, I don’t care.
~ Aaaah this one’s sad. Sort of sounds like a song.
