Teen Moving On Love Poem

Poem About Long Distance Love Not Working

I fell in love with a boy thousands of miles away from me. I saw him for a few days every few months. After a while I found the pain unbearable, so I asked for distance. It wasn't helping but I thought it was better this way. A few months later I found out he obtained a girlfriend. In complete heartbreak I wrote this poem. We still talk, but we have our own lives, only when we see each other do our feelings re-emerge.

Distant Love

Published: February 2014

Love is so complicated.
It makes me so frustrated,
But when I'm with you, everything is right,
And that is why I wish to be with you tonight.

I am here you are there.
That's the fact I hate to bear.
My love for you, I cannot describe,
And if I said it can, I have lied.

You are in my head all the time.
I want that though, as I want you mine.
I miss you; I love you, every minute, every day,
But I guess all I have to say:

"I am sorry, I was wrong.
It has been so long.
Distance is not the antidote;
It is the opposite of what I wrote.
Distance hurts, does not heal.
I am sorry, this is how I feel."

She has you now, I understand.
It's easier, I guess, you can hold her hand.
I hope you're happy, as I am not,
As me without you means I lose a lot.

If you are happy, then so am I,
Even though inside I wish to cry.
Oh, how I love you so very much,
And how I wish for one more touch.

One more hug, one more kiss,
These are just SOME things I will miss.
You're laugh, your hair, your smile.
For you, I would crawl a mile!

Fall in your eyes just once more?
And in them I will soar.
We will fly and we will dance.
I just wish I had taken another chance.

I want to be anywhere with you,
But there is nothing we can do,
As you are there and I am here,
This is finally loud and clear.

I am 17 to me love has always been hurting. The one I truly loved I had to let him go cause I had to move to a new country. It became a bit hard for us to talk. We turned insecure and I guess this was affecting us and our parents stopped us from talking. He was my first and my last ever love. My parents can't let me go back to visit and it has been really long but moving on still seems so hard for me. Anyway I guess he moved on and that eats me up slowly. But I guess let me stay with that and I will never love again.
