But thanx for the poem, i really do like it!
gail

Jennifer
WOW,this is the only poem that ever made me cry. I was looking for a poem for my bf who wants to be alone while hes in Iraq fighting the war. I needed a poem that would make him think about this before he leaves me,before its too late. I couldnt have said it better myself. thank you so much for your beautiful poem

Vianne
This is such a beutiful poem and I can directly relate to it. Brought a tear to my eye because it is so true.
Dee
Hi,I was just reading your poem and I have to tell you that you have skills. Tell you the truth I'm going through the same thing right at this time and it's amazing because it's me all the way.
Gianne
This is a very nice poem. One of the best that I have ever read. The uncertainties and feelings can very well show. Thank you for sharing it . so that all of us would know.
Eddie
I couldn't stop myself crying when I read that. My g/f left me even though I know she still has feelings for me and this poem brought me to tears so quickly. It's true that you don't choose who you fall in love with, but I keep hearing that time heals. I think all that time does is make you better at hiding your feelings. How do you find and love another when you still cry for the one that left you?
Megan
This poem sums up what I am feeling right now. My boyfriend and I recently broke up after being together for 3& 1/2 years. It started talking to some other girl behind my back and started having feelings for her.
Erica
i love this poem. it reminds me of me and my ex. this is exacualty what is going on with me and my ex. but we dont really know what we want.
alex
hiya this poem brought tears 2 my eyes and it is amazing hw much i understand this poem even though am only 15. U r talented keep it up xxx
Crystal
This is poem very touching. It reminded me of my first love and the man that i love now. It was hard to love again after what my first love did to me. It took time but i open my heart back up again. Because now i know that we don't choose who we want to love, and love doesn't really die. You can find it in your heart again to love, so please try. Don't give up knowing that there is someone out there for you like i almost did.
Jenni
that was a very seriouse poem cheers to the writer "u go girl "
Brittany (708)

Nicole
I love this poem! It is a great writing and I can really relate to it. Even if you can't, just take a minute to think of how true this is & how it can relate to so many lives. I give it a 10 out of 10!

kelly
Wow! I just wanted to say I enjoyed your poem. You captured perfectly the way I have been feeling. I am glad to know that I am not alone in this world. Thank you for your inspiration
Mandy
I loved the poem. It's exactly how I have felt for the past 10 months. I did send this poem to the love of my life and he loved it but still has not come back. I try to keep my faith but it's been so long and just now I hear he has feelings for someone else. Is it possible for him to still come back or do they ever come back after such a long time. We were together 3 yrs. non stop and I am still waiting cuz it's what my heart wants even though my mind tells me somehting else. He said I am the love of his life and hes mine so why can't we be together? I just want to know if they ever come back, if there's hope or am I being foolish. I will never forget this poem. It always makes me cry so thank you Mandy for writing what I feel.
Haytham
its saying my story.
shawnee

cris

Alissa
Hey! That poems was great! My boyfriend and I just broke up and I was so in love with him and neither one of us know quite what to think right now. I may send your poem to him. It's a perfect description of us and my hopes that we can find a way to work things out!
Jeannette
This poem really touched my heart. I feel like it was written for me and my husband. When we met, he was wearing an orange shirt, and I was out dancing with my friends. We spent a romantic night at the park. We feel in love and have been together for 18 years. Now he has broken my heart by letting me know that he has been having an affair for over 5 years, and wants to be with her. He stills seems like he loves me, and says he doesn't want me to feel this pain. I think he is confused, and I can only hope that when the confusion is gone, he will realize that no other woman will love and cherish him like I do. I love him with all my heart and am willing to forgive him if he will just let me back in. I realize in most women's eyes I am such a fool. But my love for this man is so deep that there will never be another, so all I can do is hold on to that love. I know I am "Crazy for Holding On".
CHARLENE
I READ THE POEM. I CHOKED. I E-MAILED TO A DEAR FRIEND. SHE WAS IN AWE. I THOUGHT AFTER READING IT NUMEROUS TIMES. THEN I SENT IT TO THE MAN I LOVE

This has been a very touching poem. It is exactly how I feel. I vote this as being 100% great. I just loved this poem it was so touching.
jay
one thing in there really came out to me. when you said that if you two had never spoken you would have never been in this mess. i really liked that because i was in a relationship with someone and I often thought if i had just sat some where else in class and had not said hello to the guy in front of me . good job very realistic.
Alyssa
WOW!that was a GREAT poem. i loved it. i've never been in love but i still know how you feel, or felt. well keep up the writing and hang on.
Paige

Melissa
I thought your poem was great I am going threw the same thing with my ex finance and i thought that hit home
TSOE
your poem touched me deeply. although i was never married to the man i lost. he was mine for the better part of 9 years. he left me only 2. 5 months ago-with the promise that he will always love me. i don't know if i should believe that, but it is hope. something more to hold onto. i would love to read more of your work if you have any:)
Jennifer
That poem was awsome. I can so identify with it! Good job.
TABITHA
I REALLY LIKED THIS POEM BECAUSE IT SPEAKS TRUTH AND COMES FROM THE HEART. IT TOUCHED ME AND REMINDED ME OF MY RELATIONSHIP THAT RECENTLY ENDED.
Danielle
Wow I have tears running down my face and I really love that poem. That is soo what I am going through with me and my ex-boyfriend. I don't care what others say even though he did me wrong I still love him to this day.
melissa
I felt like this poem was written about what I'm going through right now, I was really touched by it.
Amanda
that was very good poem.
Jennifer
it really fits what I'm going through right now.
dana
This poem really touched me. Brings back memories a while ago me and my boyfriend broke up but i didn't know who was to blaim cause we were both in the wrong and I'm so sad without him but he is to hard headed to tell me he still cares and If i run back to him he will think he can say and do to me what he wants. But I can't let him go I love him way so much
Shannon
Your poem touched me so deeply, it was more then the truth. It's crazy to think that so many people have felt this way and go threw the same things each day. I have had a relationship just like this one and gone threw the same but in the end i would never try to replace it or erase it. It will be and he will be apart of me forever even if he knows it or not.
Tiffany
i loved your poem especially with all im going through right now. BY reading your poem you made my day much better. Im going to keep tryin to get him back thanx for the incouragement! Your great
shiona
I REALLY THINK THIS POEM IS GREAT. IT ALL MAKES PERFECT SENSE TO ME,(UNFORTUNATELY) I SOMETIMES WISH THAT I HATED THIS PERSON INSTEAD OF GOING THROUGH THIS PAIN FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. LOVE TRULY IS PAIN.
Tiffany
This poem was very true in many ways. I am on a situation and asking myself all of these questions and then some. It's nice to know that some one out there actually understands what you feel. Thanks it was nice reading the poem
Mandy
Because we share the same name, and its a great poem too.
sarah
This is a wonderful poem.
Lacey
I love ur poem so much it brought tears to my eyes reading it!
Bill
*sigh* I read all these comments and they are from women. But let's not forget that guys go through the same thing. I'm hopelessly in love with my soulmate, and at one time, we knew we had a fantastic future together. But she says that she cannot give me what I want, and does not know if she ever can. So forget about her and never think about her again. If only emotions worked like a lightswitch. Thank you Mandy.
marcy
thank you so much for expressing yours and my feelings in your words it was soooo true keep writting
Brittany
I really love this poem I almost cried when I heard it how did you ever start writing poems you are so good at it well good luck. P. S. keep up the good work!
NiKi
heyy, this soo described wut it was (is) lyk between me n my ex. i swear i has tears in my eyes now
stephanie
This poem really hits it right on the dot for me. This poem really says how i feel at this point in my life. My husband has left me and told me to move on. But it is really hard to do that when i love him so much. And what him to come back and he just can't. So i thank you for a least knowing there is other people who feel the way i do and can write about it. Thank you.
jeffery
this is a very good poem. and keep doing what you do. It will come in handy in the future

This really touched a spot in my heart!
Amber
This poem is so true. While I was reading it I began to cry, because the recent loss of my lover was just like this. just change some of the him's to her's or he's to she's and that will be it!
May
Hey I know how you feel its been nine months since me and the love of my life went our seperate ways and when I finally try to move on he comes back. Its hard to forget about your love and just move on like nothing ever was there. Girl I feel ya.
Paula
This poem is awesome, I am going through exactly what this poem is about. The man I love decided that he just does not feel that love for me in his heart, yet he comes back time and time again to keep me in his life, this poem helps me deal with what I have to do in this situation
lightskinn03
this reminds me of what is going on in my life today. It made me cry.
Manda
Very well written. The poem relates to me in such a direct way. I would have and still would take my ex back after all he has put me through, I still love and probably will for the rest of my life. We haven't been together for a very long time now but what you have written has made me feel that someone else out there has been in the identical boat. I will love him deeply forever.
Debor

Gina
I just have to say, diddo. It's been 15 months since that one-in-a-lifetime love decided to leave, but it's been hard to just move on, although, I know I should. Your poem is word for word how I feel & the thoughts I think. I wish I could give this to him. Thanks for sharing your wonderful poem.
Penumbra
Great poem that really expresses problems in perceptions and communications that are the problem in many relationships. I am sending this to my husband as a last-ditch effort; a plea for him to talk to me and go to counceling with me. Wish me and my broken heart luck!
ROLANDO
I LOVE THAT POEM ITS A REFLECTION OF MY LIFE, PLEASE WRITE MORE POEMS YOU HAVE A GIFT
Kirsti
This poem goes beyond words. I can't describe how it makes me feel and I can't believe that someone else could write exactly what I've been thinking and feeling for the last 12 months. This is great, and I wish you luck with him. Hopefully oneday he'll wake up to what he's missing and he'll be back. In the meantime, all we can do is wait. Keep up the awesome work!
mary
all i can say is OMG this describes the end of my marriage but i never had the words. its been six years now n when will it ever end? keep writing
honey
I am sitting here with tears in my eyes..only this morning, my love and I parted. This poem tells exactly how I feel and how my heart aches for him. I didn't think anyone would understand how you can still love someone who does you wrong.but you do.
Jeanette
i am going through a bad divorce and this poem said everything that i needed to hear, it is my whole relationship. you have a tremendous gift, use it,
Rebecca
I met the mst amazing guy at the shore this summer.....and it was the best 2 days of my entire life....but I'm home now and he lives in another state....we stay in touch but it hurts so bad because i miss him SO much.....when i read these 2 lines of your poem it made me feel better because i always have our memories to think back on: But time has taken prisoners, their lives are now entwined. But even if they never meet again, the past is not left behind.
Tiffany
This poem is amazing, it speaks right to your heart and describes me and the guy I'm still in love with so well.
Blue
I REALLY luved this poem. I swear it is one of the best I have ever read and I have read alot of poems. Maybe cuz I could really relate to it. But I was crying my eyez out cuz it is so true to me. Keep writing.

Lisa
Mandy, I do believe that you have written a beautiful poem that truly moved me and actually brought up feelings that I have hinden deep within.Thank you!
Saicora
I have to agree with other readers, this poem is exactly what I am going through with my husband right now, in where he wants to leave and I don't want him to go. I'm a poet myself, published multiple times and even I could not write something this beautiful. I applaud you, from poet to poet. This could not have been written any better.
horsegirl02

Skitz
WOW! that was awesome! you did an excellent job! great rhyming, it was great, it was long, it made you understand! KUDOS TO YOU MANDY! (by the way, the name mandy rocks!)
Natalie
OH MY GOSH! That is the best poem I have ever read! I know how you feel, because my boyfriend, was hurting and he said thanks to me he no longer does, then he broke up with me. He was my best friend and we broke up before and we got back together, then he broke up with me again, and I told him I'll always love him because true love never dies and this poem says that. The last couple of lines are the best! Great work!
tavia

SHIRLEY

kathryn
This poem made me think of my husband who I still love but try hard not to, and he loves me. But yes, we are prisoners, prisoners of the damage done. And both of us have lost the love of our lives. Thank you for this poem. I copied it to my journal.
Chelsey
I'm sorry about your sister, love is a reason in itself to live. Maybe she is loving someone where she is now. I am sorry about your loss too...but it's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. You found more happiness during that short while when you were in love that some ppl. will spend their whole loves looking for.
Holly
