About the Poem

This poem is about the love of my life. We're far away from each other and the distance keeps us apart. As painful as it is to not be able to be with him, I still love him with all I have and all I am. And I always will.

aww this was a very excellent poem! this is how I feel i am deeply in love with my boyfriend who lives 8 hours away. but i keep wishing that he will move back since his dad travels out here to work and there house is up for sale where they live now. the only problem is it has been up for sale for a very long time now and they can't sell it. so i keep wishing everyday. He is my first love and it figures that i would fall in love and he would move! :((( I wish the best for u and me and also everyone who read this poem because no one deserves to be seperated from the one u love! so good luck to everyone!

I love this poem because its saying everything I wanted to say. My boyfriend and I have been in a long distance going on two years next month on the 26. On the 9th of this month we decide to just be frinds because we don't get to spend time with each other.

Long Distance Love

When it hurts so bad,
why does it feel so good?
I wish this all made sense,
I wish I understood.
Not having you here with me is tearing me up inside,
but I can't stop thinking about you no matter how hard I try.

You know how I feel about you,
and I know I want to spend the rest of my life with you,
but it's so hard to do when I can't even be next to you.
Why does it gotta be so complicated?

Loving you feels so right,
but at the same time,
knowing I can't have you keeps me awake at night.
I just want this to be simple,
I just want you here with me,
to look into your eyes,
be held in your arms...then I'd truly be happy.

Right now this distance between us is out of our control,
but I'm still hoping one day soon,
I'll get what I'm wishing for.

This is a great poem it's perfect for the realtionship that I have. I live in San Diego and he lives in San Jose. Im 15 he's 17, he comes down whenever he gets the chance but its really hard because of our age. We're deeply in love, and we can't spend a day without talking. Were not official although we have been talking for 7 months.

Katie
I can relate to this poem alot. My boyfriend works three hours away and he's only home on the weekends so it makes it hard.
helen
I loved this poem because it sums up how i am feeling wilth my bf. We have been going out for 6 months and he lives an hour away which i know boes not seem that trouble but only seeing him on the weekends kills me. He is everything to me and i love him with all my heart and i wishing and waiting for the day that we will be closer. My love for him will never change because he my soul mate and the one i want to spend my life with. Even though my parents say that i am too young to know that i am not because i am going to turn 18 soon. Keep writing you are a very talented and you have gift for writing poems that touches people's souls.
Priscilla
I love this poem because me and my boyfriend are currently going through a long distance relationship and when i read this it just touched me so much because that's exactly how I feel, and if you felt like that or still feel like that when you wrote this,I kno what you were going through or was going through and I dont think anybody deserves to go through that pain.
