Rebound Girl

Published by at 3:22 pm under Break Up Poems

Your love for me was short lived but sweet
No other love could’ve beat
That wonderful feeling I got every time you told me so
But the feeling has given away to a feeling so low
That even I detest and regret
People have told me not to let
My mind admit the sad truth…

I was your rebound girl-nothing more or less
I was your makeshift girl at best
While you showed me a love untold
You were thinking of another…another brave and bold
While I was shrinking back and scared out of my mind
Of the feelings that would bind
Me to what I thought to be true…

I was played like a doll
The one going to fall
When your fun was done
You gave me the feeling as if I had to run
To conceal my true emotions
As if it was a deadly potion
Ready to kill any one in the way
You were the one to say
You wanted me to be me
You were the one to tell this damsel
You wanted me to be true–
Now I unleash myself to my potential
No longer will I hide behind my shield

My life has been long and hard…
My weary legs have carried me far
In this world where everyone is out to get a taste of fame
A taste of glory and to give the blame
To someone who all she wants is her music and a life–
A life without fear…

This heart has it’s bruises and scars
From things long ago…things that have gone too far…
Love has made this heart hard
Love has put this pain in my head
And I have realized that love is a thing that needs to be fed
And it is fed with a cost…
A cost that can become lost
And tangled in a world untold…
A story of hearts cold…
And if you ever read this sad, sad tale
You will realize that you have failed
You still own my key
But now the fee
Has been raised…
The lock has been changed…
And you will have a much harder time
Finding the rhyme,
Finding the riddle, finding the lock…
Finding the heart that was once yours to own
The heart that once loved you unconditionally…
Now has turned to stone…
