Trapped within my memories
of all the lies you told to me
And all the little signs I was to blind to see.
Trapped within society,
feeling the need to be someone I can never be.
Trapped within a mirror
seeing nothin more than an emprty shell.

of all the times you said you loved me
I thought you meant it,
but you were just full of lies.....
This is a good expression of your feelings. I dont think you did a bad job with this one. The only recommedation I would make is to not mention the title so much in the poem. Instead, try describing the feeling of being trapped without saying it. That way you give the reader more insight to how you "actually feel" rather than just a repeated word. And you could always use the word trapped at the end. It would finish this off nicely! I think if you gave more descriptive qualities it would add a great deal of depth to the write and more readers would be taken in with the words. Just my opinion. Otherwise a good poem. There are lots of sucky men in this world. The challenge lies in finding the ones that are genuine. It takes some trial and error but they still exist. Take care.

I think I have only one thing to say about this and that is that in the beginning where you have...

that all seems to rhyme and the rest doesn't really so that kind of threw me off. I mean I don't know if you intended that but I thought I'd point it out. Otherwise I really don't have anything else to say.
