About the Poem

My name is Christy, I am from North Carolina, and I am 15. Being in the 10th grade is kinda hard, but It's fun. I was going through a lot of hard times when I finally met this really great guy. His name is Everett. He has helped me a lot, and I owe a lot to him. Even though I am only 15, I know we will be together forever! I Love Him, and I wrote this poem for him!

wow. yea i know exactly how it feels. im christi and i know exactly how it feels i lived on cloud 9 with this guy for almost a year but it didnt turn out like i thought it would. i hope your love turns out better and i pray that you never deal with the pain and suffering and heartbreak that i went through. good luck as you travel on this winding rollercoaster in life that we call love.

Then You Know

Have you ever loved someone so much
You'd wait for eternity to be with them and
each day that feeling gets stronger?
Then you know how I feel

Have you ever hurt so much it felt good?
From missing the one you love?
Then you know how I feel

Have you ever known you would be
with someone forever, until
The seas turn dry and the rocks melt from the sun?
Then you know how I feel

Have you ever had the feelings of
Happiness, excitement, and security
All at once, and it never goes away?
Then you know how I feel

Have you ever thought there was no match?
You were to be alone, To dream of a love so great . . .
And then you get it?
Then you know How I feel

Do You Feel It? Have you Felt it?
Words can't explain it, a fire burns within you,
and lasts for all time?
Then you know How I feel

There may be sacrifices,
but I'm willing to give up even more,
But only if . . .
You will return them

Then . . . You will know How I feel!

Wow that poem was amazing. I also have a boyfriend whose name is Everett and I could completely relate to that poem. That was a really good poem!
I understand exactly where you're coming from. I remember putting my biggest teddy bear in the bed with me and hugging it all night, picturing it was the love of my life. Very good poem and don't hesitate to write or type another!
I can tell that your poem is from the heart. If we had more people in this world that could express their feelings on paper as well as you do. Do you know what a better place this would be. Not only can a person write about love they could write about pain hurt and sorrow. There would be less fighting going on. Well I think so. You will become a very good writer someday. Well you already are but you could make a living off of your writings. Keep your feelings on paper like you do. They'er very very good.
raise up North carolina. i live in NC also. other than that i loved ur poem, it describes my exact feeling for my bf. good job!
