About the Poem

So many times in our lives, things come across us and we don't realize until later how much they really meant to us. This can also be said about people. And most adults tell me "Take advantage of your youth...you do not yet know it's worth." But I disagree. I realize I have a power in my youth that drives me to be what I am and appreciate all I have. And I may not know a lot about love yet, I still have a ways in life to go, but the understanding I already have of it is more beautiful than anything I have yet to see. So here's my poem about the beauty of youth and love.

Is It Happening Again?

The first time it happened,
I knew it was great.
But something inside
turned beautiful love into hate.

After being hurt,
too many a time,
I started realizing,
my heart wasn't his. my heart was mine.

I let go of the
greatest thing I ever knew.
without knowing why,
not even a clue.

But the more I think of it,
I realize now.
I had to be my own person,
I no longer knew how.

I'd became a part of him,
became a part of his soul.
All things come to an end,
even love has a toll.

But I swore that I would
never do that again.
My mind told me no,
but my heart had to win.

My first love caused
too much pain to bear.
So why am I in love again??
Life is never fair.

You've changed me for the better,
you've opened me up.
Taken me out of my shell,
with your sweet gentle touch.

But this love too,
I know it will end.
But I know enough now
to make sure you're my friend.

See love of the heart,
is a very confusing thing.
it can't be represented
by a bracelet or ring.

But a friend's love is
something that will never change,
no matter how high it goes,
or how far the range.

So all I know is to
warn you of this,
nothing is as painful
as a lover's dead kiss.

I enjoyed this poem a lot. It makes me think of the loves I once had, and now lost, and the love I have now, and the fear that too will go away.

Your poem is so wonderful, it made me cry. I am 12 years old and this is exactly what happened to my mother. She stayed with my father even though then never loved one another and now she has found the love of her life. Bless You! I give your poem a 10 out of 10.

Kristen, Girl you have much skillz!. I understand where you coming from i fell in love for the first time and it broke my heart into pieces, but I decided to give love another try and you should too. Love can always mean more then just saying "I love you" Maybe the person your with now has other intentions then letting you go. Good luck on love the second go round
