Heartbreak Poem

About a girl who wanted a man to love her like she loved him.

He'll Never Know

© Jennifer
I want to run, I want to hide.
From all the pain he caused inside.
I want to scream, I want to cry.
Why can't I tell him Goodbye?

I want to move on, I just can't let go.
I love him more than he will ever know.
I want to start over, I want to feel free!
But this pain will never leave me be.

He hurt me bad, the pain is deep.
From all the promises he couldn't keep.
All the lies, I heard him say.
Are in my head and just won't fade.

How can I forget him, leave the him behind.
Erase the memories from my mind.
He doesn't love me, and he never will.
He will never care, how I feel.

  • I just had my boyfriend break up with me yesterday and I know how you feel when a guy breaks your heart. We were dating for 5 months, and all of a sudden he just breaks up with me for no reason and that really hurt me inside. It is like I just don't want to live anymore because we had so much fun together and he promised me that he would never break up with me or hurt me in general.

  • I feel the same way you are feeling. I can't dwell in my past but when people wrong us, we stay hurt until it lifts or the person who we love apologizes. We never see their cold behavior coming. I love my ex every day I am alive, but I love myself enough to know he doesn't deserve me, not that we are "different"

  • I know how you feel my ex tried to walk back into my life and I let him and all he did was just my heart even worse the 2nd time than the first time.

  • Everything about this poem just describes what I'm feeling inside. I love this boy and I give him everything that I can. But I guess it's not good enough. I been messing with him for a long time and I can never get over him. My friends tell me to stop messing with him because he treats me like sh-t. But I love him and I can't help. If I loose him , it feels like I'm loosing my life. He tells me he don't love me and he says means things to me sometimes but it never changes my love I have for him. Idk what to do. But I'm sure faith would come and help me out.

  • I've been crushing really deeply on a guy for about 3 months now and I had the perfect plan but my friend kept on messing it up for me, and then he told the guy I liked him just today. He was soooo nice about it and he understood somehow, but I just wish I could have gone back to the beginning of the year where I felt happy everytime I was around him, not worried that my friend will tell him or know that he knows it's just realllllly awkward and like I said I care about this guy and if I'm not the one that makes him happy then I'm glad he doesn't waste his time on me, but I still want to be friends with him, uhhhgg I wish my friend would have just kept his mouth shut! I'm just so confused on what to think considering he's the only thing I could think about for 3 months T.T

  • I met a guy, who was a few years older than me, and we instantly clicked. I know it was different with him than it had been with all other guys before. we started to talk and things got serious, he had never been in a relationship before so we took things very slow so he would be comfortable. When he finally asked me to be his girlfriend, it was amazing. I felt like this was the guy of my dreams. All of a sudden, a month later, he breaks up with me. out of no where. when that morning, he had been fine. We didn't say that we loved each other, but I thought we had a strong enough connection that we were ok. The breakup affected me immensely, and he acted like he didn't even care. I tried talking to him afterwards some, and I'd burst into tears everytime. He will never know how much he hurt me...

    Karla,New York Submitted Apr 2011

  • This poem explains everything I have been feeling, this speaks for me. I have loved a man too much, gave everything for this man without even complaining, I have been into pains and sacrifices. I've tried to let go, but it's too hard, it's really hard when the problem involves a third party, because even though I know that he has someone else, I still love him. I can ease the pain and bare my sacrifices, but I'm still human, those pain really hurts and my sacrifices kills me..so even if I have loved him too much.. I'm still willing to let him go..he knows how much I loved him but he will never know how much he hurts me..

  • About 2 weeks ago I suffered the most awful heartbreak of my life (so far), I thought that I was in love with a boy, but he just wasn't ready for a relationship, so waited........and waited........and waited some more. I was just about ready to give up on him, when he told me that he loved me a lot and he wanted to be with me and no one else, but he still kept me waiting, then one day I found out he had been going out with another girl for about 3 weeks already, and during those 3 weeks he told me he loved me numerous times, I cried and cried. my friends tell me to forget about the loser, but how can I forget someone who gave me so much to remember?<3

  • I am feeling your pain right now. My boyfriend and I were so much in love during our 6 months relationship that we committed to getting married as soon as we could. The 6-hours telephone calls turned into 1 hour boring calls. I have not heard from him in 4 days and he will not return my calls nor my messages. I have been faithful to him, and kept myself in clean and in top shape, not wanting to give him any reason be turned off. He knows I am hurting but he has kept silent until now. My throat is aching and I can't eat. I know I must but can't.

  • I was with this guy for 5 years and he just one day stop calling me for a week and when he finally called me back told me he didn't want to be with any one and needed some time to him self. Two weeks later he was with some one else. The girl he with is only 21 and he's 33. He even moved her in to his place. I still love him so much. I cry and think about him all the time. I really can't get him out of my head. Don't know what to do, this is really killing me.

  • I had a huge fight with my boyfriend, I told him that it will not work if he keeps on hurting me like this, but he did not even bother to console me, which I was expecting from hi. All this really hurts, it's really pain full, neither I can let him go nor I can be with him, because I can't take this pain anymore .

  • Heart break is something I never knew would crush my hopes, dreams and feeling so lost and alone. My ex left me after 30 years of marriage. Was I blind? He found a new love and discarded me with a snap of his finger. He was my world .But now I face the new year not knowing if I will ever trust or believe in another. I will love him always for he was my first love. Maybe one day he will realize what a terrible mistake he made.

    Then she left, took my kid, confusing because she said she loves me, this has happened 2/3 times, I can't let her go, I can't finish it for good, too afraid, I'm trapped, I hate it, she just doesn't understand what I feel, she never will but I won't learn

  • I love this guy a lot. He knows it but he doesn't want it. I still love him in spite of getting hurt so many times. I just hope one day he will understand my love and what I was trying to say because I know what pain I go through each and every day. It is so bad that someone doesn't want your love when you want to give. Hope one day he will understand my pain.

  • This poem reminds me what I went through. It even hurts to talk about what happened. I really loved this guy, I really thought this was the one that I been waiting for. He made me happy...special. He will tell me he loved me everyday and call me everyday. I was his princess. He said... Then he told me that he wanted to be with me and that he wanted to get married with me. But then one day out of a blue. He disappears I never talked to him he never. Never called me. Never heard his voice till this day. Never showed up. I can't stop thinking about him I always have my hopes up when my phone rings... But never nothing...

  • It all so happened within 3 months I so very much fell in love with a person. I think nobody else can also love him so much as I do. However we can never be together, one fine day he calls me and says we will be a good friends after giving me hopes for being together throughout my life. I don't think I'll be out of this pain. Still trying hard.

  • Me and this guy met and fell head over heals for each other. After living together for a whole year we ended up separating because we lost our place. I went to live with my mom and he did the same, weekends were our time to spent with each other. After a couple months of us separated I started getting phones call from the mother of his child saying that he was with her and that he has been lying to me about our relationship. She even sent me a pregnancy test claiming to be pregnant by him. He denies it of course and says that she's jealous and don't want to see us happy. I'm so confuse and I'm hurting so bad. I feel as if a knife is in my chest. I don't want to be with him and I also don't want to let him go. I have never experienced so much pain in my life, I can't eat or sleep.

  • This might sound gay to some guys because I'm a guy but have the same problem I fell in love and she never found out how much I loved her. I loved her so much what I wouldn't give to see her smile with me. What I wouldn't give for her to love me once more. I did everything I could for her to forgive me but it was never enough. I want to give up trying but I can't say good bye....

  • I have been with the same woman for 13 years. We have 3 beautiful kids together. We've had our problems like anyone else. I thought things we're fine. Talking about finally getting married on top of that. But a recent discovery on her cellphone blew that plan right out of the water. I quit my job 7 years ago so she would have the opportunity to move up in her company. And I would stay home with the kids. And come to find out she's seeing someone at her work. I have to leave. But with my decisions, I have no money, no job and a broken heart. I thought I was being a good man staying home and never going out. In the end it didn't matter.

  • I love someone truly. He is not with me for 2 months as his family does not accept me. The reason is I don't fall in the same cast. He left me saying he cannot be with me. We work in the same office so I can see him everyday. I go to wash room very often to cry secretly. It's very difficult for me to forget him. Tried my best to move on. The pain in my heart it seems incurable. I am lost. Not able to find old me :'(

  • This poem is exactly what I'm dealing with. The boy I have liked for 3 years, and we were friends, told me I was a whore with no dad, because my dad had died about a year ago, and then his big apology was. hey you know that thing I said, yeah I'm sorry about that, I was just mad. I want to hate him and I know I should hate him but I can't.

  • Its always the same story. Mine is different. He never said anything rude to me ever. It was mutual. But in the end it was a rejection and disappearance. :( Though he never hurt me but we are no more friends. He just didn't like me. Plus it was impossible. Loved your poem. Take care . Hope you are doing better.

  • Yeah, it really hurt so much. It is like what I feel for a man for years and he never realizes what I feel for him. I've been loving him since grade 9 until now. It makes my heart turn into pieces everytime I see him and tell myself, "you need to let him go" because the longer you hang in the harder you let go. This poem relate me so much.

  • I think I'm crazy because I let the same guy in three times and all three he hurt me more than the last. I guess I was just in denial, everytime I thought he had changed and now he's back in my life. I just don't know why I cant let him go. I know this time is no different from the last but still I can't let him go.

He promised me all these things that we would have a life together and he'll never break up with me or hurt me. Next thing I knew my cousin dies and then like two days after he dies my boyfriend tells me he isn't in love with me no more. It's like everything just blew up in my face :,( when he broke up with me it hurt soooo much it felt like I was dying. I felt like I wanted to die. It was too much for me to take. It really sux like BIG TIME

  • So, it would've been 5 months. I only felt like this once before. With my 1st boyfriend. It feels like every bone in my body is broken. He changed. He wasn't the guy that swept me off my feet and treated me like a princess. He treated me like I was an option and he didn't need me. He would ditch me to see his friends, he would talk to girls and try to lie about it. He made me feel like nothing yet I still yearning to be his everything. I'm still madly and totally in love with the guy you were Marcelino. I think that's why it's so hard to let what we had go.

  • Well my story is that I fell in love with a good friend I've known him for years I'm best friends with his sister from elementary school an now were out of high school and still best friends so from all those years I guess I fell for him eventually. I just don't understand why they think we shouldn't be together we had talked for close to a year and when we wanted to let everyone know they all thought it was wrong and what hit me hard was my best friend thought the same... in the end he hurt me as well cause he told me he didn't care what they thought but in the end he said goodbye because of what they thought. I'm so angry I want to scream, I want to cry!.... ...I'm just soooo angry and sad ...... ..... he broke me.... . They broke me.
