About the Poem

At the time I wrote this I was coming out of a bad relationship and had met the person who I am with now. We saw each other occasionally, but I always wanted more. We now are together and very happy, so I guess the wait was worth it.

Longing For You

Deep inside my soul is aching
Longing for your touch
Inside my chest my heart is breaking
I'm missing you so much
You just don't know how much I love you
How much I really care
My feelings are strong and oh so true
This kind of love is rare
A life without you is not complete
I'm so empty inside
I long for the day we will be together
And no longer have to hide.

Wow! This is probably the best poem I have ever read that truly describes the feelings I have for my lover. I am not a poet and I have been searching and searching for a poem that speaks to me. I envy those who can truly write poetry and your poem is just that of how I feel. Thank you so much

beautiful..I can really relate to this poem. I have been in love with someone from afar and wanted to say how much i loved them and often wondered if anyone else felt the way I did at that time. This poem IS how I felt.

this poem really hits home for me,because i'm involved with a wonderful guy that i care about so much. But because of my Parents we can't be together in an open relationship. And believe me i can't wait for the day for us to stop hiding. thanks , at least there is someone who understands.
