About the Poem

Everyone has been hurt by love (or lack thereof) and this is just a small reflection of that resentment.

U would not believe how much this poem has applied to my life right now. i am litterally crying like a fool. this is exaclty what has been happening in my relationship and i could no longer stand it so i ended the relatioship just yesterday then i went back and made a fool of myself. i wish i had the wil and power to love my self and move on.

**sigh** This describes how I feel right now. these are the words I couldn't find. It's beautiful.

wow I ca't beleive that u were able to describe the heart that way. To be able to demonstrate such raw emotion is incomprehensible to most, though many have felt that pain before. That u r brave enough to open ureself up over the net this way is extraordinary. I tip my hat to u

And They Were All Lies

I couldnít ignore the pain any longer
Life was just too much
I never saw my life in future times
Or happiness and love and such

Iíd been to the edge with the intent to jump
And had become happy with thoughts of no pain
Feeling my uselessness as an inherited curse
I had nothing left to gain

The sun failed to shine
In my world overcast
Birds no longer sang
And the first had become the last

All things good and whole
Had turned and went their way
They were never to return to me
So I felt I should just go away

Consumption by hate, to save was too late
Where should I turn now?
Why do I get kicked when Iím down?
When could I be happy? Or even better, how?

Fallen and fetal
I will return to the dirt
Bittersweet battle within
No longer would I hurt

Smiles soon faded
And hearts followed to break
As I cried out for help
I cried in heavenís sake

Routinely I cried
For a hand to reach to me
I looked blankly at emptinessí stare
And closed my eyes reluctantly

But I felt one more fight, a chance in me
To save myself from isolation
Piercing my lips were words of insignificance
And the end to my frustration

As time's hands moved on and on
Together, as one, we grew
Now solitary routine you seek
You seek you never knew

Tired of times we spend together
Tired of me you grow
Tired of being tired in time
No feelings will you show

But in time as your thoughts are even
Will I be thought of only as your pawn
And will you be happy or sad
When Iím finally gone?

This poem just expresses what I feel when Im down. I finally see Im not the only one with these emotions and feelings of giving up. What really got to me was when it said "why do they kick me when Im down" cuz that what I ask myself alot.

This poem was trully admirable. I've been having ups and downs with my boyfriend for the past month or so. we've been together for a year now. and we talked everynight on the phone or online. and now hes going out with his friends more and more and it seems like im continually annoying him. i think he is getting sick of me. this poem literally spoke *in the way i interpreted it* of my life. the pain and suffering. and then meeting my love. and how it feels now that we are falling apart. thank you for this wonderful poem.
