The Girl You Ruined is a poem by Sarah. The poet describes a lonely heartbreak and how it feels to have lived in a world of illusion unknown.

The Girl You Ruined points to the emotional and psychological issues that surrounds heartbreak. The poet explains further that guys might feel girls are strong and don’t get hurt, bit they do.

The Poem:

You made me feel like I was flying,
Like no matter who said what you would be there to pull me back into the clouds,

Like I was something special,
You were the first person to ever make me feel this way,

Then when I realized it was all just an illusion,
The fun ended and I hit the concrete with a cold, hard, awakening,

You left me stranded to die alone,
You left me there to cry myself to sleep at night,

It hurt so much to hear you say I was just a toy,
Something you could play with,

Someone who you wanted to wallow in your misery with you,
You ruined me,

I am no longer the girl with the bright eyes or beautiful smile,
I am now the girl drowning in her tears,

Who can barely breathe at the simple thought of what we had,
The girl who deep down, is slowly dying,

The worst thing is that you can never know,
You will forever more think of me as the girl you threw to the side and didn’t hurt,

I am so much more that you can never see,
I will forever be, the girl you ruined…
