About the Poem

This poem is about my ex- boyfriend that I loved with all of my heart. Then he dumped me and left me for another girl. And I still have feelings for him and I know that he hurt me but I just can't let go of the past and it is killing me inside. I can't seem to rid my memories of us.

WOW! I don't know how you did, you are such a strong person. At the moment i am feeling the exact way that you felt. My boyfriend an i broke up and i think , that was most probably one of the hardest days of my life, because i tried so hard not to show emotion, but the tears would just not stop rollingdown my cheeks. I think that you have a strong character and don't setle for second best even though he may at times feel like a first!

i just want to thank you. this poem has helped me. you see today is my 2 months. not 2 months in happyness. its 2 months of pain. i have loved someone for soo long. we've been on and off for the past three years. and quite frankly i cant take it anymore. in december we fell in love again. christmas "it" happened and it was the most wonderful thing ever. and he told me he loved me. about a week later ditched me for a new girl. as much as i love him i dont want to be with him anymore. for the sake of my own well being. our on and off relationship has to end and i wont if i just keep giving in. so i thank you. just knowing that there is someone else out there feeling the same pain as i means alot. cas sometimes i feel like im the only hopeless romantic out there with a broken heart searching for poems for some bit of evidence that'l help make sense of what their going through. great poem. and thanks again

Hurting In The Present For Persevering The Past

Now that you're gone it seems I long for you day and night
As I reminisce of your kisses as you held me tight
I never dreamt that you would leave
I thought that you would be here to stay
I cried my self to sleep when I heard you say
" Can we just be friends? "
Your words tore me apart, as you stole my heart
You left me stranded, no where to go , no one to turn to
In that situation that selfish person would be you
It seems as if you didn't care, about me nor my feelings
as you left me in despair
I start to cry whenever I hear your name,
as your voice repeats in my head

"Can we just be friends?"
I ask myself every day, Was it because of me?
But how? I never loved some one with a love so deep
I sit here now alone and depressed
Wondering if you feel my loneliness
Just then I start to tremble because I know that the answer is no
You left me because you loved her so
Wishing things were as they were
Before I lost you, before her
But. since my love was so strong I strived and no matter what hung on

It's been a while, at least a month and a half
You could even call it the past
And still to this day I still hear you say
"Can we just be friends? "
Although it's hard, I now know that you weren't the one.
And it is time for me to move on
So when you crawl back and ask
"Can we be more than just friends? "
You'll see me sigh, them give my reply.

"Though I have awaited this day for so long,
what you did was just wrong.
All the pain that you put me through,
my conclusion is that the fault was on you.
You had your chance, I just don't feel the romance.
It was your loss and my gain, sorry to say,
but my feelings just aren't the same"

Just then I start to cry because I know that my words are lies,
deep down I know I desperately want him back
But I am not going to give in this time
I've learned from my pain that I am not going to get hurt again
Now I say to you, " Sorry, this is the end,
We are just friends"
So in words short and few, "We're through! "

No more longing for the past that I once endured
The only thing it brought me was suffering and hurt
Now I'll just wait to see what the future has in store
And not wait around for him anymore.

Amistad
oh my gosh this poem was beautiful. I just broke up with my first love. Now i just sit here and wait wondering if he will ever come back. He didnt say bye or even why. I hope one day as in my process of trying to let go that i will have the power and strength to tell him i dont feel the same way. I can relate to your experience soo much cuz if he came back my heart weak enough to give in. YOu inspire me to be brave or not act blind.
Ciera
This poem is about what I am going through right now. I know I should forget about him but I cant all the memories I just want it all back, I can hear him still saying can we just be friends. The bad thing about it is that he treated me so bad,examples he didnt call till 2:00 in the morning and then he cheats on me. But right this moment if he called me and asked me to go back with him I would go in a heartbeat. I just want to live in the past and that is what is killing me.
koya

tiffany

hey! your poem really touched me and helped me to realize Im not alone. my boyfriend of 5 years just broke up with me 2 days ago for no reason and then asked another girl out(his "best friend") and now their together. I couldn't help but just sit back and cry. I just wanna say thanks for this amazing poem and good luck in all the others you may decide to do in the future! ;)
yanet
I really loved this poem! Out of all the poems that I have read this one really touched me. I experienced a similar situation except the guy didn't want to be more than friends at the end.
GG
I really like this poem because I've been with my boyfriend for a year and a half and I know in my heart that I will feel the same way!
sandra
that is a lovely poem. it really touched me. my b/f dumped me 8 months ago and i was devistated and i didn't feel like i could carry on living, but every single night i was praying that he would come back to me and i was wishing aswell, i love him so much and he gave me a second chance and last month he came back to me and he told me that he loves me loads. you just have to keep on believing in yourself and even if you don't get him back then there will be plenty more people out there that want you. you have to keep living because once you stop believing in yourself then you start feeling really low and like i just wanted to kill myself but i believed that he would come back and he did. god bless you and hope that everything turns out right. keep writing those lovely poems because i believe that they express peoples feelings lots and lots of love x x x chelsie x x x ( age 16 ) it can still happen if your young
veronica
Hey girl that was amazing you know the thing that happend to you is happening to me right now and thats the way I feel right now but the hardest thing is that he keeps talking to me and he says that he still cares about me but he says that we could just be friends and thats killing me inside
sage
I know the fleeling all to well. He didn't leave me for another girl as far as I know we loved each other despite the distance between us but he had a rough life and we did not really get to speak much if you ask me because of his mom. There are times i wonder if he heard my thoughts because after i thought of a certain thing for a while he would end up bringing it up but I still would not mind going back out with him.
Andrea
this poem is so sweet and nice it realy touched my heart
kelly
your poem really move me. actually it was great one of the best poems that i've read in a long time. keep up the good work.
julia
I LOVED IT AND I CONNECTED WITH IT SO WELL! my boyfriend just broke up with me. and even though we only dated for a little over a month, i've been crazy about him for atleast 6 months. when i read this poem i started to cry because its exactly how i feel. especially the part where the girl says that the words she would say to him are lies coz she still wants him back. i felt like i was looking through a window to my own life. i just couldnt connect with the last paragraph coz i dont feel that way but the poem is beautiful and yo captured this feeling of loneliness and lost love so well! i give you three thumbs up!

OMG! That is exactly what happened 2 days ago to me. It almost about killed me. He had left me 5 times before but me being the forgiving person took him back everytime. and im like you now. I have time now to catch up with my friends and all the time i'd lost with them dreading over him. Yea I miss him GREATLY but sumtimes i sit and think that it feels great not having to worry about where he is 24/7 since we live about 30 minutes away from each other. well. AWESOME POEM! keep up the good work!

Jenni
Hey, you did an AWES0ME job on this poem, I thought it was great. I was kind of in that situation at one time, so I know how you felt. but anyways, keep up the good work.
Emma
I think this was good, I wish I was as brave as that. As i did have him back but because things weren t the same it had to be ended. I have come to the conclusion that things only happen for a reason as i have found the man I am going to marry and it was not him. Who knows i bet there is someone much better for her out there TO. she is very brave and a brilliant poem. WELL DONE!
rachel
This poem really touched my heart. i know how u felt cause I went through the same thing that u did, but I made the mistake of taking him back at first but now we don't even really talk.
Maria

Latisha

Steph
I LOVE that poem. It really touched me beacuse like a month ago my girlfriend said "Can we just be friends?" because she liked someother girl and it really hurt at first caz i love her but i knew i had to move on and now i'm not that sad anymore even though i will always remember her and the times we had together. I just hope she doesn't come back to me asking if we could give it one more shot because i know i want to so bad i will have to tell her no,no matter how it hurts caz i don't want it to happen again. So as you can see i am going through something alot like your poem right now so it really touched me deep down.
Crystal
