Because You Were A Fool Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


To my childhood loveA
How many times we stared at one anotherB
We smiled babishly but scared to touchC
We sat at angles we'd glance at the otherB
In that sunday school classD
Yet we couldn't share a wordE
I'd shudder at your touchC
You'd watch me play with others at breakF
You'd go physical whoever hurt meG
You'd wait for me at that Grade classD
Incase I was lateH
Incase I didn't show upI
Yet we couldn't share a wordE
I'd shudder at your touchC
You'd escort me with your brown eyesJ
Maybe you cried but I couldn't seeG
As I disappeared home as the day duskedE
And it could be the longest of the nightsK
Before another magical dayE
Was it love or infatuationL
Maybe the latter was to lead to the formerB
But all of us were fools cowardsM
At Grade I thought you could man upI
But you stood there and wished me farewellN
Like any other candidate in that classD
And the words 'I LOVE YOU' were heavy for your young tongueO
Today I look back and recal with nostalgiaP
As I go through the letter you wrote me afterwardsM
That you loved me so muchC
And that you needed me in your lifeQ
But all these was too lateE
Was already in love with another boyR
Who was to break my heart foreverB
I've lived a lie all my lifeQ
Just because you were a foolS
To say 'I LOVE YOU'T
