       I was very sad the other night, and just sat there thinking, why couldn't it have been someone else?

    dotsWhy'd It Have To Be...?dots

    You said I was the first
    The only woman you'd given your heart to
    And I took you at your word
    I gave everything to you
    We talked until there were no words left
    And I fell asleep in your arms
    You gave me a sense of belonging that night
    I knew you would keep me from harm
    We made love for the very first time
    You said it had never felt that way
    I looked into your shining eyes
    And I had no words to say
    I did everything that I could do
    To give you what you wanted
    I fought wars that had no meaning
    I made mistakes by which I'm haunted
    You wanted me to have your child
    We made a home together
    I tasted happiness for the very first time
    I thought it would last forever.
    As suddenly as it began, it was over
    Caused by something only you could see
    All I have left is a question never answered
    Why'd it have to be me?

      If you reverse some of the parts to making the character male, I can say I've been in the situation once and it sucked at the end. So this one touches a bit of soft spot.

    It's good, and the lines, "I fought wars that had no meaning/I made mistakes by which I'm haunted", if I can't connect directly with anything else in this poem, I can at least with these two lines. And I don't really think I need to go on, as this is excellently written as it is and doesn't require a lot of interpretation, it simply requires more empathizing than anything.

      We talked until there were no words left

    THis line just blew me away. I love it and I think that it completely makes the poem GREAT...again, I could see all this in my head. I remember me and Eric in one room and you and Tony in another. I can't decide if I was happy then or not; I feel so strange about Tony, I think I hate him.

      Oh, I'm so sorry for you. This was a good write, from the soul. I think you should give it to him...
    I'm think that this is definately going to be a favorite and I don't have that many, so count yourself lucky. No, I'm just kidding, but this really was a deep, and meaning write. Good job and please keep writing.

      Very emotional and sad. It was like the rugged was snatch from under the person's feet here in this poem. I liked the free verse of this and the flow of it. I think you did a great job writing this.
