Was I suppose to
Forget who I was
To satisfy who you are.

Was I suppose to
Change my soul
So that you could stay the same.

When was I going to
Come first
While you stood in the shadows.

When was I going to
Receive love
While you, for once gave.

How long must I
Wait for you to see me
Instead of me trying to get your attention.

How long must I
Dream a lost dream
Before I realize it is lost.
I think you have summed up a lot of relationships there. Nicely done.
'Supposed to'.
'Me' should be 'my' in the last line of the 6th stanza.
Thre should be a comma after 'once'.
Each stanza is a question, and should end in a question mark.

Otherwise, an interesting menu of food for thought.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thank you Mister Micawber. You are correct. I would have never of noticed the "me" and the "my". Enjoy a beautiful day!

I'd also add were instead of was, 'cause it was widely used in poetry... [Note: that's not a mistake, it really exists] Emotion: stick out tongue

Trystwithmyheart

This poem really touched me. I grew up an only child, raised by a single mother. I love my mother but she was(still is) a bit controlling. As a result, I got myself in to a career that I don't much enjoy and a life that doesn't really fit me. I'm almost thirty and I'm realizing that the life that would fit me might be out of reach. This poem seems written for me.

You should try to get this published. I think it will speak to a lot of people.

That's why I never give up on girls by changing my self. I want someone who can accept the real me, not superficial of their ideal.
