The Guys I've Loved Before

The Guys I've Loved Before

A Poem by Blue

summarized sentiments

Marjon was my first grade crush
To see him play, I'd be in rush
I liked his smile and wits between
Too bad he liked my friend Regine.

Gerald's the boy who played board games
Proud, arrogant; I called him names
Choc'lates, roses, "Will you be mine?"
I turned him down that Valentine.

Ahl was famous, he lived next door
He gave letters, laughters, and more
Handsome and smart; he was okay
Two weeks later, he showed up gay.

Kenneth's charming, first love was he
We were so sure we're meant to be
Ours was magic, thrilling, and fun
We knew too late the spark was gone.

John's my senior and brother true
He loved me, oh, he loved her, too
Our sweet affair, the saddest bye
Last time we met, he watched me cry.

Patrick's a jerk, the worst of all
Heaven of hell, song of my soul
Of love's mem'ries, his was the best
But he broke me, just like the rest.

The glorious past of former flames
Unfolded by this list of names
When love's a risk, when love's a chance
I'll take a look, I'll take a glance.

The story this tells is so enjoyable. Fantastic! and you have a nice flow and musicality to boot! I would take it this is taken from experience, but whether it was or not, this is brilliantly absurd in a number of places. Well done!

This is so good. I like this. They can be related by a lot of people. I love the ending, taking a look, or taking a glance. This is usually what leads to falling in love with someone. It also leads to heartbreak, if your heart is deceived. Wonderful work!

I like this one a lot, and it has a light, devil may care attitude befitting a strong young woman.
