About the Poem

This poem is about a guy who touched my heart and soul. He was the one. It was a long- distance relationship, and he couldn't handle that.

Now he is with someone new, and I'm still dealing with the recovering process.

No Answers

I look to my fingers to write out some wisdom,
I look up above to try and read the Kingdom,
I look all around, in and out, even crawl through to see,
But all I can find is there are no answers for me.

Hesitant at first to admit my feelings inside,
But as time went on, I could no longer hide.
I fell, and fell hard, and had not one regret,
When my heart found love, my mind was set.

You, you were wonderful, too good to be true,
That saying is valid, for I no longer have you.
You came and went, leaving me alone
And now I'm recovering in the place from which I was thrown.

I know more now than when first I came,
What I know now is my feelings are not the same.
So mixed up and jumbled; never making sense
The only thing clear is life is no white picket fence.

I miss falling into you, knowing that you're there,
But now I know that's with somebody else you share.
I won't ask questions because silence will follow,
But I just want to know how much longer my heart will be hollow.

Love the poem. It remined me of my first crush Zaid. He was a greate guy but why did he had to leave town and school. We dont know why the good guys leave and the bad guys stay around. I'm still in love with him but i never told him hi and goodbye when he left me in school. His b-day is June 23, mine is June 24 of the year 1988. Keep up the good work yo.

wow. this poem is awesome. im really sorry about what happened to you. my bf whom i love soo much might be moving away because of a job offer his mom recieved. i know how heartbroken i would be, because in my mind and heart he is mine, and i would die if i lost him. it helps to know there are alot of teenagers feeling the same way.
Cara
I like this poem because I was in a long-distance relationship for 2 years, off and on. Last Christmas I got a promise ring. and our plans were to get engaged this Christmas. Out of no-where, I get a phone call informing me that he "loved me but was not IN love with me". I cannot begin to explain how much that hurt, and without any answers, I couldn't start the healing process. This poem describes how I feel exactly. Great job, Cara. (Ironically thats my name too!) I give it twenty stars and 2 thumbs up!
courtnie

Chella
i think that this poem is the best. I can relate. Even though i don't like the bad memories that this poem brings to me it also shows me the goods we shared too. I LOVE THIS POEM
Mandy
This happened to me too. I had a boyfriend that lived far away and we were together for quite a while and even through the distance he was always there for me. He was my first love. Unfortunately he couldn't handle the distance after a while and he got with someone else, that broke my heart. He ended up breaking up with her and said that he never stopped loving me and i still love him. Lately he's really withdrawn though. Oh well enough about my life. lol. i just wanted to say ur poem really touched me. Keep writing.

I thought this was a really great poem. Iam going through the same thing and it really hurts. This particular guy is my 1st true love and know it's all over, just because it was long distant
Guy
This poem is tight. It is so deep. It explains so many details about a love that wont love back anymore or that wont feel anything for you again. Also, it leaves you wondering if you will ever be whole again.
Guera
this poem is so true! i lost someone i loved i couldn't do anything about it!
Tweet
Thsi poem is great. I felt like this. But I got back together with my baby. Me and him are great together. We learned that love can go. But it has to cxome back. It will come back sooner or later and it'll be way between then the one before.
Jill

I don't know what to say your poem is deep! Your poem is beautiful! Your poem reminds me so much of my situation! Keep writing your poems, your poem touched me and i feel it will touch alot more people in the future! Hope everything works out for you! Everything happens for a reason! Good luck in the fuure!
Amie
Wow! this poem hit hard. A guy I knew four years ago came home(here) for the summer, we hooked up things happened and made a promise to make things work out. The week after he left we talked on the phone. I attempted to send a letter but the letter was returned, We never offically broke it off, but because we aren't talking I consider it over. In my mind I wanna know why? I'm gunna send him this poem. It tells exactly how things happened
CLAUDIA
This is truelly a beautiful poem, it is put together with so much feeling. I can understand were you are coming from, I'm at that stage myself. We can all relate to this poem and feelings because we have all been there at one point or another. Keep up the excellent work!
Baby
This was definitely great poem.absolutely touching
Elisa
WOW! I am in the exact situation and know exactly how you feel. Even though it has been a long time i still find it hard to move on. He ripped my heart out when he told me he had feelings for someone else. I tried my best to write a good poem like this, but i must say mine is nothing like yours.. I really do love it..and its good to know i am not the only person out there who is in the same situation. GREAT POEM!
Dominic
