This poem is amazing. It brings back painful memories from my own life. Not knowing what love is, just doing what you think they want is how I led my life. Sounds like you did too. You poem has reminded me that I'm not the only one who went through that.
Megan
I really liked this poem. Especially since it came from a yonger poet. Many people think that just because your younger you dont know things about life, but in just 16 years of living you learn a ton of life lessons.

i've read alot of poems, and i'd have to say this is the best one

THIS IS AWESOME

This poem was very touvhing and I am grateful for your courage and the way you expressed yourself. I myself was too in the same boat when I was 14 and I thought the world was over but know that isn't the case at all. God heals and forgives and the past is the past. Although you won't forget it you don't have to relive it everyday. Forgiveness is the key point! Keep up the excellent work!

This poem really touched a nerve. After reading quite a few of them, this one got to me. The reason being, that each of us can look inside ourselves, and find regrets. but untill something or someone comes along do we really find it to be a regret.
Jessie
I really related to this poem...I am also only sixteen and i feel that i have been through way to much for my age. I just want to say thanks for letting me know that i am not the only one out there who feels that way!!!
Michael
I can see that many of people have read your poem. I am struggling with so much and it is so hard! I just turned 18 and I still feel like a confused 13 year age stuck in time. Love and relationships."better to have been loved then never loved at all" What does that mean anyway.Your poem has helped me think and hopefully I will make the right decision! Thanks God Bless

It's one of the beautiful poems I've come across recently. It says a lot about one's feelings and makes you part of it. I almost cried!

samantha
This is a really good poem. I loved it and i know everyone else that reads it will love it too.
Teegs
What can be said, you said it all. Nobody deserves to go through what you have but the fact you have written it down shows that you are a strong person with a lot of love left to give. Good Luck

I really can't believe I've come across this. I just started reading poems from this website because I have been feeling very insecure and hurt. I have been torturing myself because I can't live with my true love's past. Yet, I give her all of my heart and soul because I love her like I've never loved before. She also happens to be my first. All along I have felt like I am the one hurting because she has a "past" and I don't. I can't stand the visions. I always ask questions and details and it just hurts me more. Now I get why she cries with me when I can't handle it. She hurts too. Thank you Loved and Lost. And I'm so very happy that you found that man who treats you like the beautiful woman that you are and should be treated.
Janet

Be encouraged. We all make mistakes but God forgives. To go on, you have to learn to forgive yourself though. Ask for Mercy and Grace and it shall be granted. Accept the gift you have been given in the love you have.
Jules
How true.

I HAVE READ YOUR POEM SO MANY TIMES. FOR ALONG TIME I THOUGHT THAT I WAS THE ONLY ONE. IT FEELS GOOD TO GET ALL OF YOUR REGRETS OUT. I WROTE MY PAST AWAY ALSO. THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES AFTER THE RAIN. ALWAYS REMEMBER TO KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND NEVER LOOK BACK, LOOKING BACK DOES NOT HELP THE FIGHT TO GET OVER. EVERYDAY GETS BETTER. BEST OF LUCK.

Wow - the value or the pain of experience.

When I read this part and make me feel the same ways as your feeling of been close with someone who love you and me. It very rarely to have those people who willing to last forever because too many kids want to curious about other but they might realize that they could hurt someone's heart...
