I Used To

Poem By Rudy Hossam

I used to look up to you,
I thought you were so tough to reach,
I knew I won't reach to you,
I won't even be close.

The way you used to act,
It made you so perfect,
You were always right,
And never were you wrong.

I tried hard to be like you,
Or at lest a bit like you,
But it was always useless,
'cause I thought you were so pure.

But when we left each other,
I started to see the real you,
You aren't perfect at all,
Nothing like close.

Now I saw that I was the right one,
And made it like it was you,
'cause I wanted to feel that you were right,
In every single word.

I thought I'd be vain without you,
But now I knew you are nothing without me.

Comments about I Used To

very interesting poem! a very different emotion express significantly. it slowly grows from ordinary to extraordinary. thank you very much.
you were blinded by love but than you saw the real guy and knew he was not perfect
You were blinded by love, and it is easy to get that way.
that is what love does...blinds you to the truth...keep writing, this was a nice read

Never Give Up

Sometimes life is against you
You see it turning......
From dark to darker
Wishing it's just a nightmare

The Difference

In the middle of the night
My cell phone rang
My friend annoyingly woke me up
To tell me watch the news

A Friend

Why do I need a friend?
She does me no good.
When I’m sad,
She tries to make me glad,

In Your Eyes

In your eyes I saw everything new
And in your eyes I saw everything which grew
And in somehow I knew
I was meant to be with you

Love From First Sight

I never believed in love from first sight
It’s said to be but it’s never right
People talked about it all night
As if it’s clearer than pure light.

I Just Know One Thing

I don’t know when this life started
I don’t know when it’ll end
I don’t know how things began
I don’t know how things were
