This poems represents what I was feeling after my last breakup.
He said he couldn't be the man I needed him to be
but what I need right now is him by my side
Instead I cried all night
Day 3 and I canít see myself being alone
I wait by the phone hoping it would ring
The sting I felt in my heart was more than I could bear
ďI still care for youĒ, he said
ďI want us to still be friends as soon as you mend your
broken heart back togetherĒ
Never did I imagine that I would be back here at this place
We said it was forever but never did I imagine I would be
Friends, I canít even stand to see his face let alone
embrace him with smiles and conversation
Frustration and aggravation is what I feel
Real is the man I thought I had but he was only a phony
like the rest
The more I meet the better they get and he was the best.
He made me think my search for love was over
I had found my prince but since the day he walked away, I
feel more like Cinderella before she became a princess
Since this is the way it has to be, I might as well deal
There are real men out there somewhere.
But the dating game is tough
I donít feel like hearing all new bullshit
You know thatís what you get from these wanna be
players out here trying to be circus acts juggling multiple
These men are a trip and women claim defeat and try to
beat them at their own game
Iím too old for that lame relationship foreplay
Part of me wants to stay and deal with his shit
At least thatís what Iím use to
I donít have to search for clues as to whatís going on
Itís the same ole shit
Yeah, itís the same ole shit

I feel like you... in reverse. The "same ole shit" happens to guys, too. This is a nice write.
