One glance

One smile

Was all it took for these tears in my eyes

Forever was promised

Yet a goodbye was replied

The ‘Happily Ever After’ has gone astray

Love was a possibility that only equaled dismay

Girl meets boy…

Shouldn’t it have been love?

Wasn’t that conclusion a given, or was it just a false hope disguised as one?

We were the fairytale

The couple who were completely meant to be

But we lost the plot and are only left with our broken dreams…

Our beautiful dream, a nightmare instead?

Could it be that love is nothing but a word that people said?

You said we were forever

That our love was true

But could it be possible that it didn’t make any difference to you?

We weren’t perfect; no one really is

But pretending I’m not worth it, is the worst ever diss

Walk around like I’m nothing

Like I never meant a thing

Like killing me inside didn’t do anything to your heartstrings

I won’t pretend that it didn’t hurt

My heart still bleeds with every word

I won’t pretend that I don’t miss your touch

That your smiles didn’t brighten my day

That knowing you were close, took my breath away

But I won’t be weak

I won’t ask if you cared

If love ever mattered, despite what I’ve said

No knight in shining armor

No damsel in distress

No fairytale ever-after

Just this fairytale instead

I really like how realistic this poem is about teenage love. I like the use of rhyme in this poem. The words that were chosen were also very good although some lines seemed a bit wordy. Overall very good though(:
