Sad Poem about Love

This poem was inspired by my feelings for a man that could never love me back for reasons I wish not to divulge. I spoke to this man about how I felt and both of us loving poetry decided to write a poem about it. Thus the poem I've submitted.

Forbidden Love

I love you with a love that's forbidden, yet I can't stop.
you make me feel like no man has ever made me feel before,
with just a look I swoon.
I dream of your arms around me, your lips on mine.
When you look at me
my soul shudders with joy.
My heart skips a beat.
In my dreams I am sexy to you and there's no end to the pleasure I can give you.
I am loving you with a soft gentle love
that would shake you to the core.
In my dreams I feel you near me,
around me,
In me.
I want to love you openly
without fear or reservation,
but this is a forbidden love,
so I hide it,
keep it in secret and love you only in my dreams.
For only in my dreams am I acceptable to you,
only in my dreams can my fantasies be realized.

This poem felt so real to me. Thank you so much because this perfectly describes how I feel. I am hopelessly in love with my history teacher who is way older (early 50's or late 40's) and married with kids! Those four things make this love forbidden beyond repair, but I can't stop but feel like exactly what you said in your poem when he looks at me in or outside of class. I'm going crazy, thank you for expressing how I feel to my forbidden love.

I thought to be so much in love with someone who didn' love you back was the height of heartbreak, but to be so totally in love with someone who love you back like you do, but who still is in the middle of a relationship is totally different. You don't want her to break their relationship for your account because you know it's wrong and even though she knows their relationship isn't going anywhere, she knows it's wrong to break-up and hurt the other guy just because she found a new and better one.

I'm so much in love with a married man. With one drunken kiss, I was his. We've seen or talked to each other every day since. I doubt he'll ever leave his wife although he says they're finished. I feel like a fool. I can't stop. I've lost so much because of him. These poems I've read make me feel so much better to know I'm not the only one who has ever gone through this madness.

This poem gets me very emotional because I loved a girl in high school 7 years ago, she also felt the same way but I wasn't't bold enough to declare how I felt about her and now she's going out with someone else. She told me she was expecting me to tell her I love her but since I didn't she thought I didn't love her. Now we matured about completing university, I wish she was mine but can't wish her bad luck in her relationship though it's the only way I can have a chance. She told me ,we should wait for what the future will bring. Still hoping.

I'm in a relationship with a married man (he and his wife separated but not legal) and he happens to have a baby with other woman too. My parents don't know about it and if they will find out surely they will do anything to keep us apart. I fall for this man for he is caring, sweet, and knows how to handle my attitude and he always give me a hand, a shoulder to cry on,... I found everything on him the thing I was looking for a man to love forever more... but I guess that forever will remain a dream...

This poem touched me because right now I'm in a relationship with the father of my children whom I've been with since high school but I have a secret love too with someone who is very close to us. I feel so guilty but I have a longing for something more and the other person gives me a lil piece of youth back. Mainly, because he is also 10 years younger than me. At first it felt bad but then I think I've fallen deeper than I should and same for him. He tells me he loves me everyday and he wants to be with only me. Its crazy and my hearts so torn but the heart wants what the heart wants.

This one speaks to my soul and everything I'm going through. The way he looks at me makes my knees shave and my heart screams out for his love. My head tells me its wrong but my heart tells me its right. He is my forbidden love. I love you SWL.

I love reading this page. It relates the stories of my life (not all), very inspirational and very touching stories. I wish one day I can share too. Lots of thanks for the founder of this and for everyone who shared all these.

I just hate sharing stories about forbidden love! All I know is that it hurts so much to know that you love somebody who is not capable of loving you back or the other way, somebody who loves you just as you do but can't give it back to you! It's the same story and it's my story!
