Little Did She Know

Little Did She Know

A Poem by Elizabeth Carter
"

This is a true story about the only guy I have ever loved.

"

She was just a young girl

Looking forward to the week ahead of her;

Spending her time with friends and new faces.

 

Little did she know,

Her whole world

Was soon going to change.

 

She walked in,

Anxiously awaiting meeting new guys;

Hoping one would be worth her time.

 

None of them stood out to her,

But he saw her immediately.

He knew he wanted her.

 

He introduced himself,

And after the week was through

They kept in touch.

 

Little did she know,

Her whole world

Was soon going to change.

She quickly realized

He was a friend worth keeping;

A friend worth fighting for.

 

She knew of his feelings for her,

But she did not feel the same.

He was her best friend and nothing more.

 

Months past and she turned sixteen.

He asked her to be his girlfriend,

But she refused.

 

Their feelings remained the same

For one another,

And soon he had given up trying to win her.

 

Little did she know,

Her whole world

Was soon going to change.

 

Then on a warm afternoon in May,

They went to a baseball game.

She saw him, and knew her feelings had shifted.

 

They talked, even acted, differently.

When they hugged that warm night,

She was conflicted with past feelings.

 

He, a few days later,

Asked her once more to be his girlfriend,

And she happily agreed.

 

They flirted, held hands,

And she saw him

In a new light.

 

Little did she know,

Her whole world

Was soon going to change.

 

That first time they kissed,

On the riverfront,

Was magical.

 

All surroundings vanished.

It seemed to her,

They were the only two in the world.

 

Everything was wonderful;

Her life finally seemed right.

Or so she thought.

 

Little did she know,

Her whole world

Was soon going to change.

 

He called her on a bitter autumn night,

And made it known

That he no longer wanted this relationship.

 

She cried that night,

But cried even more a few nights later,

When he told her he had lied to her about why he had ended things.

 

He had lied!

She was devastated, and wanted to forget the wonderful past months.

But knew in that moment she was in love, and heartbroken.

 

But she was kind and soon forgave him,

And they continued being friends.

But his feelings remained for her.

 

He never hid this,

And in February

They started dating again.

They were so in love,

And even when her father was diagnosed with cancer,

He was there for her.

 

Little did she know,

Her whole world

Was soon going to change.

 

She still loved him,

So when he broke up with her again,

She was shocked and heart-broken by him again.

 

He said she didn’t still love him,

But he didn’t know the whole story.

She had been focusing more on her father, and less on him, but she did still love him.

 

He begged and pleaded for her to take him back,

But she could not

Cope with an emotional roller-coaster any more.

 

Now they rarely talk.

A once in a lifetime friendship

Was permanently damaged.

 

Now he wishes he could take back

That night he ended things for good,

But she has moved on.

 

She cannot dwell in the past,

Nor does she want to.

He has had his chance.

 

Little does she know,

What is to come,

And how her whole world is soon going to change.

I like the style in which this is written the ability for the story to flow even though it was repetitive was really cool. I liked the story and it's very real... sometimes I find myself being this guy.. an emotional roller coaster, most time's i find myself being the author in this situation. A poem that can reflect and relate with other people is a very well written poem indeed. Great job.
