Forget You

So many nights,
Were wasted for you,
So many times,
You were untrue.

You never had enough,
You wanted it all,
So don’t count on me being there,
Whenever you fall.

How does it feel,
When you look me in the eyes,
And all that you say.
Were nothing but lies?

My emotions are mixed,
My feelings unsure,
You just had to show up,
And put my life on a turn.

Why are you here,
Don’t you get it?
I don’t want you,
So just forget it.

My life was fine,
Before you were here,
And it will continue,
Without you near.

A good friend once said,
“Don’t get caught with a guy,
That keeps you up all night,
Making you cry.

There is no guy,
That is worth your tears,
You want a guy,
That causes no fears.

And when you find,
A guy worth your tears,
He won’t make you cry,
So keep him near.”

Favorite Quote:
The thing about philosophy is that it often runs dry when thought of so shallowly.

Great poem! Same problem though; the rhyming scheme is a little off, which means you obviously have these certain phrases in mind. Try being open-minded about your wording, and also, this isn't the poem for this, but try to mess with your wording, try being metaphoircal with everything. See if it turns out stilted or flowing, and find which you're better at.
Other than that, it has a great flow of its own, and a good, clear storyline, but cheesy moral (but that can't be helped, poetry has to be cheesy 50% o the time)
