Why wasn't I good enough for you?

Why wasn't I good enough for you?

A Poem by Jess.
"

It explains its self I guess....

"

What was it?

My shyness?

My jeans that aren't a double zero?

My shoes that aren't high heels?

My hair that doesn't always stay in place?

My eyes? Are they not pretty enough?

My nose that isn't perfectly straight?

What was it that changed your mind?

 

Why did you do it?

Why did we talk for hours? When now we hardly talk at all....

Why did you make me feel like I was so important? When now I feel like I'm not important at all....

Why did you make so many promises, then break them?

Why did you ask me out, then change your mind?

 

Am I not as pretty as the other girls?

Is it because I don't act like everyone else you know?

Is it because I'm different?

How could you do this to me?

How could you think that it wouldn't effect me?

You're such a stupid boy

A boy who broke my heart and left me with all these unanswered questions

A boy who I want to forget about so badly....but never will....

Why can't you just tell me?

Why wasn't I good enough for you?

Hon, forget him! (And you know what, in time, you may not completely forget him, but a lot of the hurt will likely be gone.) It's you who's not good enough for him. I know that's cliche, but it's true. Clearly you're a sweet, caring, thoughtful person, and he's shallow, selfish and inconsiderate. Your poem illustrates many people's hurts and frustrations with being dumped and not even getting the consideration to be given a reason. You did a good job of expressing yourself, and this is something that I think a lot of girls, and maybe even guys too, (I couldn't give you the male perspective on this.) will appreciate reading, realizing that they're not so different and not outcast like they think they are. I hope a lot of folks, young folks in particular read this so they know how hurtful some things can be and so others know it's not them that caused someone else's inconsideration. A very expressive, heart-felt and strong write!

If he doesn't love you, he's not worth the time! I bet you're a very sweet person, and he's not. Obviously.

Oh Wow! This is so relateable with me. I used to sit and think of reasons why a guy didn't like me.
I always thought it was my looks. I never thought I was ever pretty enough to hold a man. I like
this and all the feelings you wrote out about. Very well written and so well expressed.

You will find one, soon enough, that will make you forget about that one. It happens to all of us. We must have our hearts broken a few times, so that we can find the one to patch them up and make them feel a love stronger than the ones who broke it could ever hope to provide. Because how could we appreciate the sun if it were not for the rain?
There is a reason for everything, my dear. And there is a reason this happened. He was not the one for you, especially if he could pass you up. Inside everyone is a wonderful person, and I'm sure the same goes for you. No one is perfect; especially on the outside. And if someone is "perfect" to the eyes, more than likely they're nothing but hot-air and cardboard on the inside. They're boring, cookie cutter mannequins of what society has pointed out for them to be. If that's who he wants, then that's sad for him. He will never be happy. But you? You have the rest of your life for someone to come along and find you, the gem among the fake pearls, and then he will know you and love you much more than even you think you deserve~ But love is like that. It's a bumpy road to find it, but it's worth the bruises.
