This is about loving someone but they keep letting you go. You want them to make you mad so you stop loving them and can finally move on.

I think you can survive. The thing is that you haven't let go of him. I would tell you that you are too special to be someone's second best while you can be someone else's only best... Just...

Can't Stop Myself From Loving Him

Published by Family Friend Poems February 2010 with permission of the Author.

Why am I such a fool?
I can't stop myself from loving you.
And countless nights I've cried for you,
Just because my feelings are true.
You're up and down,
Your feelings are all around.
Don't lie to me,
You don't love me.

I've spent so long waiting for you.
No there's nothing I can do,
I can't stop myself from loving you.
Even though I want to.
I can cry all I want,
But I can't pass it off as nonchalant.
My feelings can't just fly away,
They are here to stay.

Piss me off and make me cry.
Please just lie.
Make me hate you,
Last thing I want is to love you.
I want to move on and have a life,
I've always wanted to be your wife.
But I can't do this, not anymore,
My heart is too sore.
I can't deal with more heartbreak,
I don't have any heart left to ache.
Please, just leave me.

I've had a boyfriend and I loved him so much even after he shattered my heart. I want to stop thinking we can be more than friends but I somehow can't get it in my head that we can't. It hurts so much to think about it but I can't seem to forget about what we had. I love him and I always will no matter how much he hurts me. We had many amazing memories that I don't want to throw away but I need to so I can move on but guess what I don't want to move on.

I was with this guy for almost one year. We both were from a different culture, but it never bothered. We used to hang out together, go for long rides and used to spend quality time together. But suddenly I realized that he is a cheat and has many girlfriends. But I can't stop loving him. I have tried my level best to forget him and move on. But all my efforts went in vain. I can't stop myself from thinking about the good times that we have spent together. Today he is again in a relationship with a past girlfriend of his and now he claims to love her truly. I am depressed; no idea what am I going to do with my life; how can I even survive. But I too know that this girl is not right for him. I want him to get out of this relationship and get a girl who only loves him truly and selflessly. I am not saying it should be me, but a girl who can be loyal to him. I want to help him; but I don't know how. Please help !!!

I think you can survive. The thing is that you haven't let go of him. I would tell you that you are too special to be someone's second best while you can be someone else's only best... Just learn to let go.

As if its me writing the poem. At least I know there people who are in the same shoe as me! I love him, I really do. And no matter what I'll forever love. He'll be in my heart, this is a fact. I don't know if he feels the same for mean I've never told him about my feelings for him. We only text each other and we don't say anything about love. I just don't know if he loves me and this kills me. If we meet coincidently we'll just say hi how are you and move on. I know its weird but that's how I live. Am lost. I have epilepsy and feel I can never get married coz who'll want a sick wife. But he knows about my disease. I hope and pray for the best. God will be on my side

I was with this guy for a year. I absolutely loved him. I gave him everything. Then one day it was over. He cheated on me while he was drunk. The sad part is that I forgave him. I still wanted to be with him. I'm so stupid, he did it once, what makes me think he won't do it again. I'm broken and I'm trying and trying so so hard to move on but it's so hard. I'm afraid he'll forget I ever existed. The love we had for each other was real and true but I guess it wasn't meant to be. I regret things and I feel guilty for things that I have done. I went to God and asked for forgiveness and honestly he has helped me so much. Some days are better that others.

Hey it happens to guys too you know. I really liked this girl that crushed my soul and left for another guy. I literally would have killed that guy to get her back, but now she's just an entity that is clouding my mind and wasting my time

<3 omgg(/.\) I'm in the same position and it sucks every word he said I was too stupid to believe him. I've been crying everynight. Knowing that everything that was ever said or done was a big lie. He'll send me crap I don't care about but I really just need him out Of my life .... <3

For the longest time I refused to date this guy. He was my best friend but we both wanted to be more but I kept trying to tell myself it would only end in tears... we lasted 5 months and then rumors started about me cheating because some of my friends liked him too and we couldn't take it anymore and decided to break it off. This happened months ago and I still cry myself to sleep every night meanwhile he's moved on and has already had another girlfriend and he doesn't even talk to me anymore and I miss him and I still love him but he hates me and I just feel so broken.

This poem brought me to tears, as I was feeling the same way. I care for this boy with all my heart, but it is not right he has a girlfriend and there will never be a me, and him.. I want him to tell me he hates me so I can move on, but yet he does the littlest things that keep me around.. He doesn't know what he's doing or how I'm feeling, I just wish I never met him..

Omg, this sounds just like me. I was with a guy forever and one day he decided to end it, with no explanations. He said it was just a break, but it wasn't. Now, almost a year later, I am still heartbroken over him. He was my world, my everything, and it's so hard to just let go. He'll always have a special place in my heart.

Me and this guy Daniel dated on and off. He would get drunk and party with other girls all the time. He cheated on me and called me worthless and a bitch. We would leave each other for a day and I'd end up testing him saying I missed him and loved him. He said he wanted to marry me but he constantly hurts me. When me and my mom fought and my baby brother died...he was never there for me. It took me months to realize it but...I left him today. Sure I'm crying my eyes out but I know it's for the best. I can focus on getting a volleyball scholarship and fixing things with my mom. I will always love him<3

I love my ex we went out for 8 months and we always hung out, but I went on a holiday and when I got back I got told from my best friend that he asked her out, but she said no because she knew I loved him and I still do. It has been 2 years and I haven't dated anyone else but my mate is trying to hook me up with a good friend of hers, but I will always love my ex he will always have a part of my heart

In my situation this guy played me my friend tried to tell me tried to get me to stay away but I refused to listen I wanted to be with him. I was willing to do anything I stopped talking to my best friend more like a sister we were raised together we have been friends for 17 years and I almost threw that away for him. Well thank god she really cared and is a true friend she forgave me, but the reason I am writing is because I loved him with all my heart and he ended up getting back with one of his ex's but while they was talking so were we and he told me I was his browned girl and I asked him one day because we didn't talk for a couple days, I asked him if there was someone else, he said no but a day or two later the girl, his ex, well his girlfriend wrote me and told me. I hated him for it. I never wanted to talk to him again but I still love him even though he made me hate him I still love him, but I am moving on anyways just look at it like this there's a reason he didn't make it to your future

Just, leave. You see your mistakes, and instead of doing something about it, you write poetry. Get up and leave. If you love him, but he treats you like crap, he is just using you for anything he gets. I'm a dude. I know this. If I was just looking for a screw I would probably take advantage of some chick who I knew was in love with me. You are all the same.You may think you're grown up because you write poetry. Or you'll say OH YOU WOULDN'T KNOW. But I do know. I do understand. You need to walk out. Don't let him call you, don't let him use you for his own gain. Be strong, walk away while you're still safe.

I like your poem. I'm currently with a guy. he's 18 and I'm barely 15. not much of an age difference but at times I feel worthless to him. he can act like the sweetest thing when he wants SOMETHING but at the end it just he's lies. I can't stop loving him. he makes me happy at a point but he acts like he doesn't want me anymore. I need to move on....

Wow I am in the same position. I've dated this guy for 3 1/2 years and he just broke my heart way too many times. I can't seem to get over him but I know I will be able to give someone else my heart... whenever I get it back from him. I finally got enough courage to erase his number which is good because he got a new phone with a different number and I didn't end up memorizing. Anyways this poem is really touching and it made me realize that its time for me to move on.

I actually know how you feel, pretty much the same thing happened to me last year for six months, I still love that guy forever, but I'm finally moving on.
