Read Poem: You were never mine by Sara Blake

1-12-19 :

You said you’d want me forever
But we both know that’s a lie
I’m just on the back burner
I was a side, you were never my guy

I don’t know what I’m doing here
I’ve buried myself too deep
However you’ve made it clear
That I’m only in second seat

Is this the torment and pain
That momma warned me about
Knowing I’ll never be main
Because boys know how to tell lies from their pretty little mouths

I’ve done what I vowed not to do
I cried for a boy, many years ago
This is how deep I’ve let you burry your roots
Since I actually shed tears once more

It’s all been one big lie
You say you want me
But you have plans for her
You say you adore me
But your feelings for her you only deferred

It’s almost like you were programmed
To make me fall
I can’t believe I let you in
I gave you my all

With those eyes you looked at me
And me melt
With those lips you kissed me
And made me feel things I hadn’t felt
With those ears you heard
Between the lines that I spoke
Taking in every word
Using them on my heart, with many pokes

I should’ve sticked to that path
The lines between us were once defined
My heart is hurting from the aftermath
Simply knowing you were never mine
