I Used to Love You

I Used to Love You

A Poem by Treo LeGigeo

A twist on the classic aristocratic-man-loves-poor-girl class crossover romance.

You said that you loved me,
And I loved you too,
But then you went and left me,
You didn't care what I would do.

I knew our love was forbidden,
A break in the laws of society,
But I thought we could keep it hidden,
Keep going on quietly.

But you wanted to have another,
One of status, class, and beauty,
Just to please your father,
When he spoke about "duty,"

You told me you didn't want me,
You needed someone to love in public,
You cared only for you to be happy,
No thought for me in your life so idyllic.

With that you turned away,
And broke my heart in two,
You never looked back that day,
You thought you knew what to do.

And now you're here, now you're back,
You "loved" me too much to let go,
Without me your world is black,
Why you left me you don't know.

The wound's cut too deep,
You can't heal it now,
I, you cannot keep,
To make me love you again I know not how.

Don't think you can cast me aside,
Then just come running back,
I'm not a weakling always at your side,
Don't think my will I lack.

You said that you loved me,
And I loved you too,
But your selfishness lost me,
Never again will I love you.

honestly, i like it and it described well. i havent had such situations but my friends did. and there was love but due to influences from the parents side or society in general they were broke up and then regreted about it.

Yeah, this is one of my old ones. Certainly not my best.
Is this based on something that happened to you?

Not at all :-) I never write based off life, my life isn't interesting enough for that.

Beautiful. I love how instead of a forbidden love that kept on, it was one that ended. One that she didn't take back.

Amazing(: I love how its different from all the other love poems you see about forbidden love

Posted 8 Years Ago

Nice idea, I loved the strength and conviction with which you wrote this. However, it was a little difficult to read. I mean, the meaning was understood, but it was like you were forcing the words into a particular pattern in order for it to rhyme, and that tended to abruptly cut into the flow of the thing as a whole.

This is a very strong piece. Full of a girl's independence and strength. Not to mention incredible willpower. ;p
The feelings seem very raw and special. Amazing job. Absolutely exquisite.
