The truth is
I always watch those romance movies
expecting to be that beautiful girl he sees in a cafe
that he can't stop thinking about.

The truth is
I've had songs and songs written with my name
that he sang to my window
chocked full of 'forever is in my eyes.'

The truth is
I've been that girl that he held hands with
in the grocery store, that tumbled after him
in fields, that stroked his hair in the hospital.


The truth is
he and I were like a movie
even when he yelled and lost his temper
even when I got insecure and couldn't take it
even when he lied and made me leave him.


except the part where he didn't chase after me
and I didn't cry the day after.

I wrote this damn poem cause I'm sick of watching these unrealistically perfect meet ups between two amazingly perfect people in movies.



Sorry for being a debbie downer. XD I'm just struggling with believing in love at the moment.

Aw. I hope you can start to regain the happiness in your life without him. It's so hard to live on your own after being with someone for so long, but it can really heal to do things for yourself and have hope for the future.

Yeah. [: It's just annoying 'cause whenever I finally start to get stronger and forget about him, his memory haunts me every time... Then I get an explosion of feelings back and they're all for him.

I hear this. I'm rather sick of the fluffy movies they show where boy meets girl, or visa versa, and they fall in love and stay in love. Blah. There needs to be turmoil and heartache and show the real picture of what it takes to get to love. It's not as simple as just finding someone one day and knowing they're the one (even if they can happen, but not often). Just my opinion. But there is love, so hang in there. You'll find them when the time is right and when you're ready. :tighthug: This is a great piece, for sure. :+fav:

I agree with you 100%. Quite frankly, I seriously doubt the existence of "true love." Just my two cents...

Hey lady... I feel you!! I know what you mean about those perfect couples with perfect circumstances. It’s terrible… and I think it goes all the way back to Disney, when we were little girls, watching a prince charming sweep his lover away on a white horse, and they live happily ever after. Pppfffft… ya- not in real life! :nod: Lol…
Awesome poem. :dalove: Thank you for sharing. :aww:

that's what i kind of liked about 500 days of summer, that he didn't end up with her.
Sometimes it just doesn't work, and you just have to pick yourself up and start moving forward again.
cause the truth is, the forward movement, and going through life is what brings about the situations and relationships in your life that matter.

I love the motto from meet the robinsons about letting go of the past and keep moving forward.
Otherwise you get stuck in the never ending 'what if' cycle, missing out on life cause you're stuck in the past wondering what if.

I agree ^.^ I feel much better about everything today. It comes and goes in waves for me haha. I like how you tied in specific movies in talking about this.

Also I need to see 500 days of summer.
