About the Poem

This is a poem I wrote after my best friend, (now my boyfriend) told me he loved me for the first time. We both understood that "love" is a strong word and we rarely used it because at that time we weren't together yet so we didn't want to say anything we were unsure of.

I really felt this poem, the word love gets thrown around so much these days. Its a word that should be cherished and just be thrown around

Don't Tell Me You Love Me

Don't tell me you love me if you are not sincere
For a lie that strong can ruin my life and bring on a new fear.
Fear to be loved, fear to love ever again
It can cause my fragile heart to break, tear and bend.
Think of all in life that will be missed
because of one small broken promise
So, when I put all of my trust deep within you
Please don't tell me you love me, unless you truly do.

I think that this poem is so true because my Ex boyfriend told me he loved me now he hates me . The sad thing is i still lovev him.
kristi
that poem is totally awesome. i know exactly how it feels to be told youre loved by someone and they totally didnt mean it. it hurts and scars for a life time it seems and it takes forever to heal from the pain. love can be used to heal or destroy and a lot of times we cant tell whats going to happen until the final results occur

Sha'Kesa
I love this poem because the way this person wrote it, its telling the truth of what happen to me. Like this boy claim he loves me because I heard him talking about this girl behind my back somehow his phone line got twisted with mines and it hurt so bad that he lied to me trying to make it up. But we don't talk anymore and Im glad because I really moved on with my life without him in it. So whoever wrote this poem it really does touch me very much and thank you.

Emilia
I liked this poem because I relate to it. Usually all of my ex-boyfriends would say "I love you" the same week that I would start dating them. Then I started dating my now-boyfriend and he told me "I love you" a little over two months that we were together and is the longest relationship that I've been with someone. I was so scared when he i love you and I told him not to say it unless he meant it and he said that he did, so I started crying and i told him that i loved him and he asked me why I was crying so I told him why. He told me he would ever hurt me and I started crying even more.
