The stone wall is peaking,
Making itís rise to the top.
I try not to think about us often,
Iíve simply put my heart on stop.

When people look at me,
All that pity in their eyes,
I stare back with my fake contempt,
Causing them to step back in surprise.

They say I take things quite well,
They think Iím doing just fine,
But truth is, Iím not taking it at all,
although deep down Iíve lost my shine.

I had this gut feeling from the start,
That I would end up broken,
But an idea called love got in the way,
Now on bitter tears Iím chokiní.

In my imagination you were different,
You were just the boy of my dreams,
But reality kicked me in the face,
Youíre just every other boy, it seems.

Instead of breaking down,
Like any normal girl could,
The stone wall is now peaking,
Just like I knew it would.
To every girl who has ever said "he's different",
all guys are the same.

I deeply,deeply resent that. You have a very short memory if you cant remember all the hundreds of thins I did that made me different. Just like every boy? Looks like the problem is, if you feel that way, is that you did not appreciate me and all the little things I did- Tell you what, it's been almost a year,letme know when you find the guy that:
pays for your house cleaned every other week to make your life easier and come home to a clean house. Romantic weekends at Cheeca Lodge and The Moorings. Always there for you when you were sick, Would buy medicine, bring you food and drink(take care of you), shopping sprees-all the other guys buy their women $1,000 Jimmy Choo's,right?
stop to pick up the finest champagne and chees and crackers you like,as a snack/appetizer. Take her son to get you Mothers Day and birthday presents,even though he dint even seem to care-I knew you would be dissapointed and hurt,and took him anyway. Put $2,500 down a new car so you could g from a Saturn Vue to Cadillac SRX. I took care of most of the transaction, to help you. Managed you and your mothers investments with special attention, knowing both your resources were limited and you would no special service anywhere else? How they doing now? I could go on and on, but now I am furious. Not different? I listened to everything you told/taught me about what a woman wants/needs,(like listening,and sking about your day)and tried to change my ways to give you what you needed.
I am told by every woman I am with now, that I am different. I know how to please and woman,and sacrifice my own selfish needs to satisfy you. I am so................. glad you will never recieve this special treatment. Then see if you say the same thing. Then have a chat wih my next girlfrend and see if she says "i am no different than the other boys"
That's why I left. I told you didnt appreciate me. You were treated like a queen from the best money could buy,in everything we did, to the little romantic gestures you said you wanted. Thanks for saing it again,so every time I start feeling nostalgic, I can be reminded that after all my efforts, you felt I was no different.

omg i am so sorry but you need to understand where she is coming from......maybe she didn't realize that you did all those little things, and maybe you did things that hurt her....i don't know the whole story and i'm not one to judge....

I love this :) But, not all guys are the same. Most are jerks, yeah, but there are some who genuinely care.

Regarding insanity-you enjoy every second? which personality is this? your poems tell of the torture and prison of the mind that insanity is.

Great poem. tapped my emotions with my situation. Not different? ALl the same? I ask myself what other guy in the world would still love and suppoort his woman after has called the cops several times, had him arrested, got a restraining order, caused $50,000 in legal fees, cut off all contact with him 6months ago, and turned her family and friends agains him. He understands that the behavior is a result of mental illness. He is compassionate, understandingand suppoirtive. Yes, he has gotten very angry and said some horrible things he ddid not really mean. She is everything to him. He STILL loves her, even though she has made his life a living hell. He will never waive in his support for her facing mental illness. Never give up hope for their love and his desire for them to be together forever. Just another guy? I don't think so

Your poems speak to me on a totally different level, deeper than any other form of media has ever touched my heart. I'm choked up as I whisper each verse, immediately feeling each word. Your poems are like none other.

This is very relatable for me. While I don't think guys are all the same, one's heart does tend to become stone after such events. :/

When guys hurt us, we tend to clump them all together, determined they are all the same because they have something in common, they broke our hearts, and left us hanging, the easy part is hating them and putting up the wall i personally have felt myself and I know I am not alone in that , but eventually one comes along and breaks down the wall we try so hard to maintain and keep up , but we have to be willing to let him in, otherwise you never get anywhere and that one guy who IS different will only get through if you let him...

I love the poem but not ALL guys are the same. I have a dad and he is different from other guys. He cares about whats on the inside and not on the out. But this poem has very good meaning.
