About the Poem

Even normal day to day things become alien when you are lost inside yourself. The struggles to regain a sense of ourselves when we have long been part of another person is a test of our ability to navigate in a strange new world.

This poem really touched my heart. it even made me cry. It captured the real emotions that are going through my head. It's really, i mean REALLY hard to let go of something that has been a part of your existence. But i just wish that someday, i will have the courage to love again. To love someone much more than i loved him.

Terra Incognizant

You would think by now, I would know my way around,
I shouldn't miss you so badly, I should be on familiar ground.
How many more lonely years, must meander by,
until I learn the lesson, it does no good to cry.
What manner of iron will, must some people possess,
to be always looking forward, to never accept regress.
Perhaps if I was willing, to let someone take me by the hand,
they could show me a happy place, in this unfamiliar land.
Perhaps I'm only homesick, for all the joys that once were mine,
I must accept that they and you, belong to another place and time.
But I know that deep within my heart, there's a place where only you reside,
and when the pain of loneliness comes, it knows that is where I hide.
So if sometimes it seems to you, I'm clinging to the past,
it's mostly because I can't yet accept, that our love didn't last.
No matter how hard I try, I've yet to get over you,
for the part of me that's still alive, believes you love me too.
Maybe there will come a day, when that part will finally die,
and feeling strong with a heart reborn, a new love I will finally try.
And what a splendid day that will be, when I awaken to discover,
I'm happily learning a great new land, with a great new friend and lover.

fantastic poem! got to my heart!1
Schyler
This is a well-written poem that flows well. It is exactly how I have felt for a couple months. My soulmate left me abruptly without a clear reason why, and my heart has been ripped in half. I feel depressed and I must constantly hide my true emotions from everyone. My mind is stuck in the past with all the great memories I have of us being so happy together. To this day I still love her endlessly and I don't know how to move on.
Julie
You Made me cry. This is a fabulously sad and very exact poem. I truly know every word is ingrained deep inside of me. Im there feeling like I'm drowning and trying I'm to pull myself up for air.
lakeyda
MAN I HAVE BEEN IN A PREDICTIMENT BEFORER AND IF THEY WERE TO SIT DOWN DOWN AND THAT TYPE OF FEELING WAS THERE YOU WOULD GO ON THE INTERNET AND LOOK FOR THESE POEMS IT WOULD LEAVE YOU IN TEARS BUT YOU MIGHT FEEL GUILTY OF SOMETHING BUT IT IS SO TRUE AND TOUCHING TO ME
Crystal
This poem was so touching. I had a friend that i shared a very brief (2months) yet very passionate romance with and then he moved far away. He and I continued to talk and he would tell me he loved me every week. Then one day I called and another girl answered the phone. I have yet to get over him, though I try and try. We still talk occasionally but I don't know what happened and we don't talk about it. This poem said exactly how I feel.
Tony
It's been about 15 years since I saw her last. This poem is like someone went into my heart and found how much I have missed her and put my feelings down on paper
Tiffany

Nikki
i liked this poem because its kinda what im going through now. i just got out of a relationship with the one that i love and we can't be together because of our familys. but it seems like i cant move on to any other guy that likes me because im in love with the one that i cant be with. its so hard to get over him but the relationship wasn't the best and i need to be strong and move on but its just like i cant.
teisha
i am really likeing this poem and im feeling this 100 percent. the reason i like this poem because im in a situation like this and this poem got me memories.
Kathleen
This poem means a lot to me. For one thing I just lost my one and only true love. I thought that we were going to be togeter forever. He was someone that had a very strong heart about things. I didn't think that we would ever separate. The effection that he showed me was unreal. There was that tingle that always lasted in me, every time I thought of him, everytime he got close to me. I had hoped it would last forever. But I guess not. Things in our relationship went wrong. I opened my mouth and told the truth but no one believed. It is hard to believe that we aren't going to be together anymore. Now it is time for me to try to leave him and it's hard. It's harder then you'll ever believe. He was my everything. I needed him in so many ways. And now it is gone. I hope, and I pray that it is not true. But deep down I know that it is over. I love him so, but I guess it is time to let go, even if I don't want to. I had a hard time reading this poem because I just broke up with my boyfriend. I loved him so much and still do. Oh well though. Time will pass and things might, but more then likely not, get better between the two of us. If it doesn't I'll put up with it. All I know is that I will never love anyone else as much as I loved him.
