About the Poem

This poem is about a love I'd had for 8 months when it suddenly ended. I wrote this after he unexpectedly showed up at my house to talk things over. The talk didn't turn out like either of us thought it would. But at least I finally realized one thing I had been missing - the fact that he never really understood me at all.

The Dream Of Lost Love

The dream begins as you open the door,
the wonderful feeling too strong to ignore.
Do you remember? Are you feeling it too?
Are you also wondering what to do?

Not knowing what to say,
please speak first, I pray.
Remembering all the promises and lies,
remembering the hurt that never dies.

The words that I dare not utter are flooding me,
the real you is the you that I never did see.
You swore to me you would never let go,
how the hell was I supposed to know?

Nothing you said was ever true,
you still don't realize you make me so blue.
How hurtful it is to finally see,
that even now you don't understand me.

Hey that was so awsome keep writing I lost a guy that i really loved the he was killed skateboarding and the quote i gave his mom to put on his stone was " I was afraid to love u but when i did I lost u forever" and its really depressing but keep writing poems your awsome!

This peom says how I feel
your poem moved me because that is just how i feel but could not put it into words myself, to fall into love and to have them turn their back on you is the worst pain in love that i have ever felt,i still hurt but it does lesson over time
Very touching poem very romantic very good
I loved this poem because it really a fact and each word in it describes my feelings.
This is a wonderful poems cause it descrides my past loves.
thanks for your wonderful expression of my truly feeling
These words are so true and full of real meaning. If people would think before they say things to hurt they would realize that you can't take it back later. I loved this poem because if people read it maybe they will think twice before saying somthing hurtful.
This poem was great, it described exactly how I feel. As I read this poem tears ran down my eyes, because it was so realistic to me!
i voted for this poem because i know from experiance how true this really is! i recently broke up with the cutest sweetest gentlemen in the world..or so thought!
What can i say? this is purely beautiful.i can also relate to this poem in many ways..
