I Wrote A Poem

I wrote a great poem,

Then wasted it on you,

I should have just written,

About violets being blue,


I lost a poem,

For a letter to a lover,

Won't mean the same,

To any other,


You pretended to like it,

But once alone, you snuffed,

What I worked so hard on,

Just wasn't enough,


I ripped open my heart,

Let it bleed on the page,

Then you threw it in the fire,

And watched the flames rage,


I gave you my heart,

I wish I could sue,

I wrote a great poem,

Then wasted it on you.



I really like the story and rhyme scheme in this poem. Well done. 


Thank you! I really appreciate the feedback!
