And as I stare at your face
I try to erase
The picture stuck in my head
The one above your bed
Of me and you so in love
What happened to us
Where did I go wrong
Tell me what did I do wrong

Is it asking to much
To try to keep in touch
After all the hell you put me through
I stood true
I stood by you
And I can’t believe
That I didn’t see
Any of this… nothing at all

And I’m left alone
Just remembering the times
Knowing I was yours
And you were mine.
I’d brag to everyone
Telling them of you
Lieing about who you really are because
I loved you
No I loved you

If I could do it all over
I wouldn’t get this close
I wouldn’t let you in
When it’s late at night
And you can’t sleep
I hope your laying there
Thinking of me
And what used to be

I’m tired of these games
Where I never win
We can both honestly say
I never had a chance
And without hesitation
Without a second glance
You can turn away from me

-that's it, i'm new to this so be gentle please...but constructive criticism is more then welcomed
I liked the way that everything sounded while reading it. Damn fine piece of poetry to me. I actually liked the:

"Where did I go wrong
Tell me what did I do wrong"

part, because I knew a girl once who whenever I did something wrong, she expected me to know what it was, and it was usually something petty and stupid, so I really liked those two lines. What was the inspiration for this whole entire piece? (I apologize for asking that question, but I wanna start reading this forum and asking people what inspired them to try it for myself, and see what happens..)

Nothing really sticks to me with this one. You've stuck some rhyme in places and left none in others. It reads sorta choppy. It lends itself to a pause after each line. But, being new to this, as you say, its not bad. With more practice you could become good. I suggest reading poetry and songs, just reading, not listening. Try some T.S. Eliot, Shakespeare, Lord Alfred Tennyson, try to get a variety. Reading will improve your writing.
Does anyone know the song that goes: ba ba bah, ba ba buh, bu ba bum, ba ba bah, ba bu buh, bu bu bum, bu ba bu bu bum baam?
