Passed Me By

Passed Me By

To those who I have given,
my all,with every try.
I give this final smile,
and a well deserved,Goodbye!
To those who saw my weakness,
and used it to their gain.
I give a final wave,
for there I no longer remain.
And to those who started laughing,
at my plans,with a shrill.
They no longer think I'm funny,
my ambitions,they did not kill.
To all those lovely ladies,
who answered questions with a sigh.
That didn't even stop to check,
and calmly passed me by.
I'll make this final statement,
about times I wish not to tell.
Thank you for the lessons,
and then I'll say farewell!

This is awesome. I can see that this must mean something to you and I don't know if that's the same as the message I got but it sounds to me like you are able to move on from problems. Cool write!

*Sly smile* My dear, I believe you and I must talk some how, your work is overwhelmingly amazing. I did not get the chance to read it before the corrections, but I find this too another splendid work that has managed to creep inside the silence of my mind.

I read this poem before and after the spelling errors, and without, it's a great improvement.

Good, I like the rhymes you used, not so expected like many other writers. Their rhymes are tired and predictable. Good job keeping my attention too, by the way, you forgot the E in goodbye... well, goodby! LOL.

Thanks for fixing the spelling errors. It makes it easier for us to concentrate on the message instead of the mistakes. :-) So... I think I'll just give ya some more points! *grin*

So true to life that all the emotions are in play. Very well expressed and stylized.
