About the Poem

I wrote a few poems when I was in high school. They really weren't written for anyone. I just got ideas from reading other poems. I hope you enjoy them. Never really shared them with anyone except a few close friends.

Would really like to hear feedback. I would also like to set up a website for poems. I love collecting them. If you have any please forward them to me. I have a poem collection book and welcome all poems.

Don't Look Back

Don't look back
When you head for the door.
'Cause if you do,
It'll hurt even more.

Don't stop to explain,
Don't tell my why.
If you're going to leave,
Just say good-bye.

I love you, I'll miss you,
But I can make it alone.
I want you, I need you,
But I can hold my own.

'Cause I can't tie you down,
You've got to be free.
I can't make you love
Only one girl... Just me.

So don't look back,
I'll tell you again.
Just kiss me good-bye, darling...
If this is the end.

This poem is beautifuly written, thoughtful and touching. Everyone will go through this throughout life, not that the pain lessens as it happens over and over. However there will always be that one person who will stand out from the others. Oh ADZ.I hope you see this.

Beatifully poem Its nothin but the Truth
I can relate to this poem because if the person you are with is not treating you right and you don't want to put up with that mess. You don't want to hear their excuses, they shouldn't even look back. I have felt this way before. That's why I enjoy this poems soooo much.
I really enjoyed your poetry. Continue to write I think your very good
I loved it, so true, so real, so touching. as they say the truth hurts, and everyone can relate to "Don't Look Back".
