You know that crushed feeling you get when the guy you like starts dating someone else? I wrote this poem on the same day that I found out the guy I secretly liked was dating someone else. Honestly, it was a very depressing day for me.
But the purpose of this poem isn’t to throw a pity party; it’s to express my emotions and hopefully provide an outlet for you to express yours, too. You don’t have to stuff the sadness down into the depths of your soul. Even when you’re sad about something seemingly silly, like your crush dating another girl. You can take that sadness to Someone.
I’m gonna cry
Because I can’t hold in the tears any longer.
Because everything hurts right now.
Because he was all I wanted, but he didn’t want me back.
Because I thought we’d become more than just “friends”, but we didn’t.
Because he picked her instead of me.
Because I thought we might have a chance, but we didn’t.
Because my expectations were crushed, and my heart was broken.
Because I’ll never find anyone as good as him.
Because everyone else has someone—except for me.
Because the world feels black and grim and lonely.
Because I know he won’t satisfy me, but I know he’d do his best.
Because I know it’ll be okay, but it’s currently not okay.
Because I know there are other fish in the sea, but he was the only fish I wanted.
Because I know I’ll meet the right guy eventually, but “eventually” isn’t now.
Because I know singleness is a gift, but I want to exchange it ASAP.
Because I know I’m not alone, but loneliness feels like my only companion.
I’m gonna cry
Because my sadness is seen.
Because my weeping is heard.
Because my tears are safe with You.
You have taken account of my miseries; put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your book? (Psalm 56:8 NASB)
