Breaking Up

By Alyssa W.
Grade 9, British Columbia

Crying for hours
not sleeping for days
missing my boyfriend
is a horrible phase

love thats not fading
but jealously awoke
having other girls touch you
left me no hope

I thought we'd be good friends
and not be ignored
for your my true love
the one I adored

you left me no signs
for what you were about to do
well I just sat there
madly inlove with you

as you told me those words
tears came upon my face
hoping you'd change your mind
but you already closed the case

I still wonder if
you'll give me another chance
to laugh and love again
and have that last dance
