i have just broken up with my husband after 14 years he left me said he needed time and space. He says he still wants to be friends but will come back one day, i know this is not true. This poem touched my heart.

jazlin
i really liked ur poem it was really touchin made me almoust cry cuz i past thought the same things that u did i know how u fell
Kelly
Great poem, absolutely great. i loved this poem so much, cuz right now i'm in the same situation. Except for when he came back to me, it was all i ever i wanted, so i took him back, thinking it would be fine, but then he broke my heart again. So good for all of you, who know well enough,(unlike me) that its his loss if he dumps you, don't fall for his tricks again.

I like your poem alot and I like the fact that so many kids can compare the same thing to it. I sure can after three years of being in love and it just ended so yea. Im glad im not the only one out there with the same problems.

Tee
I really liked your poem while i was reading it i totally related to it because the same thing happend to me and even though i love him so i just have to let him go
Cody
Hey, im a guy and i read your poem and it is never really to good to give some guys another chance because SOME guys are jerks and they will hurt you more then once if you give them a chance no matter what you think of them it seems harsh but thats how it is sorry if i seem harsh to but im just telling you that your decision was for the best. Even though it might happen again (i hope it doesnt) with a new love that you might find. You must move on if he wanted to go out with you again he should have never ditched you in the first place well im prolly wasting your space and keep your art coming its beautiful until then good luck to you.

Shawna
I can really relate to this poem, and you did a extremely great job describing exactly how you feel when this happens. My ex and I went out for a year and a half when he all the sudden told me he didn't love me anymore! I still love him with all my heart, but he won't talk to me or even just be friends. I couldn't express how it feels in my own words to even come close to what a good job you did it for me! Thanks!
Danielle
I really like this poem. I felt the same way when my ex broke up with me but i keep going out with him and he keepet hurting me so you were so smart not to take him back.
Keisha
This poem describes my exact situation. My boyfriend broke up with me about a month and a half ago and i miss him so much. He's got a new girlfriend, but he still flirts with me. I have this feeling that eventually he'll want me back and i hope i won't crumble and say "yes!" He put off and that was his mistake b/c i know i would've treated him right.
Brittany
This poem is great! Me and the writer can really relate! See my ex-boyfriend of 8 1/2 months dumped me and is now going out with one of what I used to consider, one of my best-friends!

Damaris
I Love this poem!!! I gotta say its one of the best poems I've ever read! I can relate to it alot! Heartbreaks is one of the hardest things to get over...but we gotta be strong and not show them we care cuz people like to take advantige of what people feel!
Rachel
I really can relate to this poem. Even though me and my ex broke up almost a year ago, he just recently got a new girlfriend. She is the first one since he broke up with me, and I am having the most terrible time dealing with it. Thank you for putting into words exactly how I feel.

JC
YOUR POEM HAS HELPED ME OUT A LOT. THANK YOU SO MUCH.MAY GOD BLESS YOUR HEART.
Avi
SOME TIMES, IT DOSN'T END WITH "LET'S JUST BE FRIENDS" IT COULD GO ON TO "WE HAVE NO TOMOROW WE HAVE NO TODAY". AND HEARING THAT OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN COULD HURT EVEN MORE. BUT YOU HAVE TO HONEST TO YOUR SELF ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS FIRST. THEN YOU HAVE TO FORGIVE AND MOVE ON!
Tracy
This was such a great poem. I have been there before, and it has given me the strengh to move on. Thanx!
Elise
Oh man I feel you soo much here. How many times I have been in the same situation in the last few months but the difference is I didn't ever have the strength to just say no. Congragualations and the more power to you!
Smiley

LAinE
Hi! Breanna, I wanted to tell you I enjoyed reading this poem. I broke up with my ex about 6 months ago and let me tell you the pain still hurts like it was just yesterday. Don't ask how I handle seeing him and his new girl together but I do. In my mind I know that he definitely isn't the one but my heart doesn't seem to care. How sad is it to love someone who says "I love you" but doesn't act like it. It's like a figment of your imagination. This hurts like hell!! I can't explain anymore. I try to push him away but his words are so pursuasive. what a situation!
Ashley
I can relate to what your saying. I felt the same way when my boyfriend and I broke up. It's been 7 months now and I try to tell myself if and when he comes crawling back to me I'll say "No I don't feel for you any more." but I know the truth -- if he wanted me back I would say yes in a heartbeat. See not only did he leave me alone but he was my first love and I always told him how I felt and he kept saying "We're to young to fall in love." but, obvisouly he's just a guy with no heart! I really enjoyed this poem!! I'm really sorry that some one else had to go through the pain that I did I know it hurts really bad!! Good luck to you in the future with other guys!
Ashley
WOW~That was a great poem! It fit my feelings exactly about my ex-boyfriend. Thank you!
Marina
your poem really touched my heart b/c i went through the same exact thing as you..i loved him with all of my heart and he left me for another girl supposively he loved to,so he asked me the same question "can we be Friends"? i was hurt..so i know how you feel.i wish you luck in the future..i hope things will work out for you and you love life..take care:0)
laura
I think this is a great poem!!
audrey

Amanda
I loved the poem! the exact thing happened a month 1/2 ago! i didnt give him the chance of day cause i found someone that truely deeply cares for me! i write poems all the time about love! and this poem encourages me to do more! Thank-You
Rola

Candace
only if he could truely see what you went though. Maybe he will if he has a sister!
Nicole
hey breanna, I cried when I read your poem. Has that happened to you before? I has too me.How old are you? You must have had some deep deep feelings for that guy. If you don't mind hearing mine I'll tell you it. We're at the dance and this girl that likes him was there. They must have said something to eachother on the side and I didn't know cuz he broke up with me that night.I cried of course, my best friend yelled at him. the best thing about that night was I met someone else who I with right now.Eventually when this guy knew he did me woring he came back, Isaid no, I wanted him back but I went though so much hurt I couldn't love him like i did again. His loss! I live and learn. Sorry so long. God bless you and take care. Thnax for sharing your poem.
Crystal

i just really enjoyed reading this poem. it was the best out of alot that i've read. it really touched me. thanx for writing it.
trish
This poem explains exactly the feelings I still feel for my ex-boyfreind. It has been two years since we have been together but he was my first true love, and many other first. Sometimes I just wish I could stop thinking of him, because now i am engaged to be married and my fiance gets very upset about me still loveing my ex-boyfriend. I know how you feel, and it unfortunately doesn't ever change.
Zack
I cried just reading that poem. I am a guy and my girlfriend just broke up with me and said the same thing. I can't get her out of my mind and i can't get the saying can we just be friends out of my mind also. If i had to put into words how i feel i would have to say you put them just right. That is how i feel right now. That was a very beautiful poem. I loved her with all my heart and she broke up with me and said can we just be friends it hurts so bad.
Amber
This poem has helped me through a huge breakup and I can totally relate to how you felt . You will never know how much this has helped me and I thank you for that ..
macy

Qiana
I enjoyed this poem. I can feel the pain that you felt and this has given me the strength to move on out of a relationship that the love is no longer there.
