The Best of You

The Best of You

A Poem by KAJ

How can you smile at her and not at me.
And go to places with her where I want to be.
I've been kept out, ignored, and left behind.
Watched you two have fun too many times.
Couldn't you see that was me who was crying.
Pretending to be happy when inside I was dying.
Now there is nothing you can possibly do.
It broke my heart she go the best of you.

"It broke my heart she go the best of you" - did you mean, "It broke my heart when she got the best of you?"
