I Told You So

In an effort to start branching out on my blog and post about things other than outfits I wear, I am going to try to post twice a day Mon-Fri from now on. I'll post my outfit posts in the morning, and something else in the afternoon. (So if you're looking for my outfit post for today, it's below this one). Most posts will be about fashion but every once in a while I'll post about something else that I'm passionate about - today is one such day.


I've never liked poetry much. I wrote a lot of it when I was between ten and eleven years old, but other than that I've mostly disliked it. Then, this spring I wrote a poem. It was terribly random. I didn't plan to. It just sort of happened, but it opened the door and I found a new passion.



Now, don't get me wrong - I'm still not a huge fan of reading poetry. There are less than half a dozen poets I really like, but a lot of times when I am really upset poetry is the only way I can express myself.

So today I thought I would share one of my favorite poems. Please let me know what you think.

I used to cry with fear at the thought
Of you forgetting me later
You used to tell me not to
That could never happen
That's what you said
Isn't it?

You were my best friend - my best friend,
At least I thought that's what you were.
I gave up so much for you
How could you leave me now?
Forget me?

And I just want to tell you now:
I told you so.
But no,
You swore it wouldn't happen
You said nothing could make you forget
Well that didn't last long
Did it?
I told you so
But you swore it wouldn't happen
I told you so.

You asked me to trust you and I did -
I fought with myself to do it.
You said you'd not let me down,
But the first chance you had
You did just that.
Admit it.

And I just want to tell you now:
I told you so.
But no,
You swore it wouldn't happen
You said nothing could make you forget
Well that didn't last long
Did it?
I told you so
But you swore it wouldn't happen
I told you so..

I think in my heart I always knew
That I was just a crutch for you
Why'd you have to be so sweet?
That only makes it harder now.
I trusted you -
Relied on you.

And I just want to tell you now:
I told you so.
But no,
You swore it wouldn't happen
You said nothing could make you forget
Well that didn't last long
Did it?
I told you so
But you swore it wouldn't happen
I told you so.

And so I hope you have fun with them -
I told you you wouldn't need me.
You made me believe different,
But still I always knew,
You would forget.
And you did.

I can't go on with empty promises,
The fairy tale is over now.
And all I've got is memories,
That I'll think fondly on.
We had lots of fun then,
Too bad I fell with a thud
Since you weren't there to catch me
Just like you said you would.

And I just want to tell you now:
I told you so.
But no,
You swore it wouldn't happen
You said nothing could make you forget
Well that didn't last long
Did it?
I told you so
But you swore it wouldn't happen
I told you so.
You forgot.
