This is me...Why did you not love me..?


I had watched you smile,and cuddle with me,
you had held me close, purged the sorrow in me.
I had seen you cry,taken your tears away with me,
you had made me a child,disinterred the innocence in me.

Bad times had come and you saw other sides of me,
You liked some,and prayed for some to leave me
There you were, by the side of me,
changing so many things in me.

Who you were,never concerned me,
but you seemed unhappy,with what is me.
This is me,I said,the real me
the one I always want to be,every part of me.

I would never let you get hurt because of me,
I could never live with that agony.
But you walked away leaving me,
for you did not like being without changing me.

I always thought you had said you loved me,
then why was it that you tried changing me.
I thought you would understand by changing me,
You would not have the one who loved you,the real me.

Why could you not love the bad in me ?
when you fell head over heels for the good in me ?
My tears have dried,alone lies the real me,
You knew I had tried,why didn't you try to stay with me ?

This is me..
This is who I will always be..
That was you...
That is who I always wanted you to be..
But I always wanted YOU to be with ............
ME !

I was thrilled by the flow..truly amazing..apart from the wow rhyming scheme, i loved the whole poem...

it happens that people whom u think love you for what u are often want to change u..but its the will in you that always denies that...
A true love would love everything about u..and would want to improve u, not change u..
And i feel elated that my post inspired u to write such a fantastic poem..
Hats off
:)

@shruti..
More than try to improve ... it will make you evolve to be a better person .. like he says in the movie "As good as it gets" "you make me wanna be a better man"
I am glad you liked my post ..

"I always thought you had said you loved me,

Rings a bell in my ears too...

That's fantastic! You have just brought out whatever someone with all that feeling seething inside would fervently try to put out... Poetry in motion, I'd say!

That was touching.

Love is loving someone for who they are,not for who they would rather be..
