I was struck before the hour
Of a love so sudden and sweet.
Your face shone like a shining star
And made my own heart beat.
My face turned as pale as ever,
My legs refused to walk away
Yet when you looked at me
What could I possibly say?
My life had suddenly seemed
To all just melt away.

Then my blood rushed to my face
And took my sight away.
It seemed like it was midnight
When it was only mid- day
I could not see a single thing,
Words from my eyes did start,
They spoke as a chord does from a string
And a sweeter melody it did play.

You seemed to hear my silent voice
And love's appeal to dream
I never saw such a sweet face
As the one that stood before me.

jessica that was a wonderful poem. u really understand the meaning of love girl. guess what?my ex boyfriend's name is Ryan!
My boyfriend just recently went to jail 2 weeks ago, he has 2 months left. i feel so empty without him, he was the other half of me, every minute we spent together i fell in love with him over and over again, i know he is the one i'm going to spend the rest of my life with. i am so crushed, and don't know what to do with my life, i miss him terribly. :(
My boyfriend whose called ryan got locked up a few months ago aswell and i was just on here looking for a poem to send in to him to tell him how much i love him and i came across this! I was so shocked! thanks.
I love this poem so much, it reminds me of my ex- boyfriend i love him so much . we are no longer togather but when i read this it made me think of him,and it made me cry just thinking about him and how much i love him, and want him back
Oh my god, I never thought that I would find somebody that was going through the same thing that I am. I have been with my boyfriend for 2 and 1/2 years almost and he's been in jail for 10 months now. I miss him so very much and wish that he was here right now. But he get's out in 2 months hopefully and I pray that he doesn't screw this one up too. I have a baby with him and I just want the best for her, and that's for her to have her adday around. Thank you so much, I'm going to print this poem off and send it to him. Thank you so much for pointing out that I'm not the only one going through this!

yea i can relate to ur poem a lot, i really like this poem. my boyfriend jus got locked up lastweek and he might be in for a year and i already cant stand being without him. i was lookin for poems to send him and i found this, and im happy that i did.
I really enjoied this poem because it sounds like what happen when my boyfriend asked me out. I was frozen and didn't know what to say. I had been crushing on him for quite some time then and word got around to him and he then cam up to me in the hall way before my 7/8 hour class and asked if I would ever go out with him and I said yes then he asked me and I was so happy but I was frozen and I couldn't think of what to say. So when I saw this poem I knew I wasn't alone in that feeling.
I really liked your poem , my man Kevin is in jail he had been it for 3 months he has 2 more to do untill his court date then whatever the courts say is the rest of the time that he will do . i miss him like crazy and i can realite to what your feeling.
