I love this. I'm feeling restless, & I couldn't express myself better than this poet. I'm not in extreme pain, but my partner is. His Dad is very ill, cancer has metatasised all over his bones. & every few months, for the last 3 yrs, my boyfriend has to hear the doctors prognose only another 3 months for his Dad. Meanwhile, he locks me out of his world. He won't dicuss his grief, his fears, his plans. My own world is turning increasingly empty
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I loved that poem it inspired me alot cause i can really relate to it you did your thing!
This poem explains it all. my boyfriend hasnt been the same lately and i feel like im giving our relationship my all and he isnt doing anything
even though this poem is short it gets right to the point, something about it makes me want to remember it, even tho im not exactly into poetry. its so dark and sad and yet it says exactly how i feel
When I sent this poem to my husband after a hot argument, things settled down. This poem touched our hearts SO MUCH that I cannot express it in words.

Its soo true as if thoughts and actions have been moulded in words . loved these few lines because they are touchy. few words have expressed everything .
Great work full of thought and deep perception. Shows how even the most difficult things can easily be said in just a few words.

this simple yet elegant poem cuts to the core of what one feels when love is tested or lost. thanks!
What an excellent poem! ( sorry. can't find any better words to describe the peom)
its a statement. Just like this one. So true.
It says it all! I think i need some tissue.
So real. i loved this poem, it's simple but undrstandable. it explains true feelings in short words.
This Poem Was Simple, ut express alot then It Looks! I enjoyed It
I like this poem because it's so true with sympathy and compassion that neither way even if they may not see the value you have offered you have a reason as to why you're holding on.
loved the way it just said he truth and didnot sugar coat it.
I really liked it. It totally relates to me
This poem is excellent. I just ended a relationship with someone who i love very much. His Mom won't allow us to talk anymore even though he is 18 and I am 19. I gave him everything he wanted and more, and in the end it all turned out to be for nothing. He was and still is all that matters to me, but until he realizes that he can make decisions for himself without his mom, he is never going to be truely happy. hopefully in the future he will see what he has lost. I just hope it isn't too late :)
this poem is the best, its simple, and its understanding, i love it out of 0 - 10 i would rate it a 10
i think that this sort poem is very true no matter how much you feel for that one that means the most to you you never get the same responce back
i liked this poem/quote because it was how i felt about my last boy friend when we broke up.
wow! that is perfect!
