How Could You Do This

How Could You Do This

A Poem by Justin Wright

At first everything was great
Now I can't stand to look at your face
Knew I couldn't trust you, what was I thinking
I was in denial, I couldn't believe it
All your drama I really don't need it
Money ain't everything, I know you can't see it
I think your just dumb and this time I'm done
You'll move on to the next one
How could you do someone like this
Can't believe your lies, your ignorance
As fake as these people hating
Thought you were real I was mistaken
Thought you were the one but your not
I can't regret it cause it taught me a lot
I'll do me and it ain't never gonna stop
There's a special place in hell for you to rot

I should have thought things over first
I was hurt, but your lower than dirt
You think it's not cheating til you get caught
Everything you are is something your not
Thought you were my girl, I was so wrong
Don't get it twisted this is no love song
S**t on me like the rest of these haters
I'ma ball hard like the Pacers
I'm so fed up with all this fake s**t
People who dish it but can't take it
Can't believe you played me
There ain't nothing you can say to me
To take back everything you've done
The games you play are just dumb
I ain't gonna let you turn me into another low life
Can't look back the future is looking so bright
Listen to the rhymes, so you'll know what it's like
To be tight, how you did me wasn't right

Probably was f*****g every time I text you
I looked like a fool, can't believe I let you
Play me, wish I had never met you
Made me, wish I could forget you
You'll move on to the next dude
He'll figure out your a mess too
Now your begging me to take you back
After the way you did me like that
Blowing up my phone, I just laugh
Enough with your lies, your so whack
You took advantage of my trust
Gave you everything and it wasn't enough
Now I see who my true friends are in cuffs
The way you live is just so fucked up
Looking at all the time I've wasted
Time for you to cry so save it
You can be depressed, I don't need the stress
Some things in life are just a test

Wow, you my dear friend deserve this ----(*claps and hugs*) This is awesome and I need to throw this is all of my exes' faces. People can be so dumb sometimes and don't even care about hurting someone. The hearts of some people are so cold and messed up. It destroys the rest that are perfectly normal and sane. I asked this same question so many times, "How could you do this?" The response was always "I'm sorry." That is the moment I want to punch the guy in the face. I never want someone to feel pity for me over breaking up with me. If anything, I pity that person for breaking up with me. You have to hold your head high and wear your confidence on your sleeves as you walk down the streets. Your exes will soon start crawling back (personal experience I would know this is true.) You are worth to have someone that will treat you right and that will never give you the reason to ask them this question you're asking. I only noticed a couple of mistakes. The word "your" was used repeatedly and I am sure in the particular lines I read it was meant as "you're". Some of the lines are too much in one. Maybe separate some of them into more lines. Or that could mess up some of the rhymes. I am giving some suggestions. You don't have to listen to silly ole me:) Great write. Keep writing! Post more of this. Vent your feelings. That is the most powerful writes.

This is a very emotionally charged poem and I love it! I can really feel your anger and resentment. Was this based on personal experience? I find the most effective poems usually are. If so you're clearly better off without this person in your life but at least you got this amazing work out of all the pain they caused you!

I loved the ending! I think it is a very powerful poem. I just think that you need to review the punctuation, so that the reader can really know the right pace. Other than that, this is a job well done!

damn, this is ... amazing, you write with such passion, that I cant stop reading when I get started. This piece, had a great beat, I dont know if thats what you intended, but it could easily be a rap song. I love this write, you are very talented with your words,
"Probably was f*****g every time I text you
I looked like a fool, can't believe I let you
Play me, wish I had never met you
Made me, wish I could forget you"
these lines flowed perfectly in the beat I had going as I read, so surprise, you again, wrote an incredible inspirational piece. I could only wish for such natural talent!

Wow very sad and heart braking. I enjoyed reading it and its as if I was there watching this relationship brake. Its really painful when you're there giving people the best and all that you can, to just be used. I like your writing.

So, next time, you'll take your time and
get to know the girl, right?

Why is everyone in such a hurry, anyhow??
