Take Me Back

How could I be so stupid
To let you slip away?
I had you in my arms,
But I let you slip away.

I want you back,
But now it's too late.
I've already said goodbye,
And now love has turned to hate.

I want to go back in time
And fix all that was wrong,
Change all of my regrets
So we didn't fight as long.

The regrets are what messed it up,
And they were all my fault.
I was so immature;
I should have acted like an adult.

I broke my own heart
When I walked out on you.
Now it's too late,
And I can't undo.

I still love you,
But nobody knows
We are no longer together
Because of what I chose.

It was a bad decision,
And now I want you here.
Never far away,
Always near.

So please take me back,
And catch me when I fall
'Cause I need you right now
More than anything at all.

Beautiful. We all make mistakes. Some are rather easy to atone but others are not. No matter what, nothing will change without first acknowledging fault. Of course the next step is to try to make things right.

I rated this poem 5 stars and added to my favorite list...not because of the poem, but because of the comments. I read them, and they really touched my heart. Whoever's reading this, let me please tell you, never, ever, ever take people, especially your loved ones, for granted. I am glad that I plucked up all my courage and could confide my feelings to my girlfriend. I am thankful to God for this so much. She's my world. I love her so much. You can't make a relationship without some pain because pain is the spice in romance; and learn to solve it, not forsake. If you find someone who knows that you are not perfect but treats you as if you are, never ever, ever let him/her slip away. Remember!!

Regrets, we've all had a few - sadly sometimes there's nothing one can do. One thing though is to learn by mistakes.

I can relate to this so much. I found a guy so good. He wrote me beautiful poems every day just to show how much he appreciated me, and they made me feel special. But I got so overwhelmed that one day I got a poem from him telling me that he loves me, and I freaked out. I blocked him, but the next day I unblocked him. He called a couple of times, but I didn’t pick up. I felt like he was sincere and I was playing him. I wasn’t aware of how I felt, so I didn’t speak to him for a month. Then my phone broke. I got a new phone and lost all my contacts, including his. Now here I am 4 months later. I have no idea where or how to find him. He’s not on social media, and I don’t know where he lives.

This poem is really sad. I dated this boy. I’m not going to say that I didn’t love him because I truly did with all my heart, but everything was in a text. We never talked, and it made me feel insecure about myself, like I wasn’t the one or I’m not good enough. Yeah, I tried talking to him the most, and I know if he were to read this, he would snap and say he tried too. I feel like I wasn’t loved by him. I felt like he just wanted to date someone so badly because he never had a girlfriend before, but what’s the point if we’re not going to talk? What’s the point if this ruined our friendship? This is one thing I want for all you men/boys to hear: I’m sick and tired of boys, and all I ask for is love, that’s it. Just be there for me when I need you. Just listen to me and comfort me. It’s really not that hard. This goes out to all guys.

I feel the exact same way. Sometimes I feel like a bad person for dating five guys in like 3 years and breaking up with them, but I have realized in the last week that the last guy I ever truly liked, I loved him, and now I just want him back, but I LOVE HIM so much that it hurts. He won't answer my calls, texts, or anything, and it makes me cry every night. Most boys think once we have left them, we don't have feelings for them, but it's not true. We probably are just too afraid of getting hurt.

I can't believe she finally decided to leave me. I loved her so much, and that love stayed even as she left. This poem made me think of her. I hope she sees how much she hurt me. Baby, if you ever read this, I love you so much. I can't stand life without you. :(

I was so touched by this story that it almost made me cry. It reminded me of when I broke up with my boyfriend...but I didn't mean to and I want him back, but he says I'm faking it. Love hurts.

This poem touched me to tears because I've pushed the love of my life away. Wanting him back is all I want and need because he is my life line, all I have and need. All I want is one last chance.

Hmm.. we were in a long distance relationship. We both loved each other but I dunno why she left me. With the passage of time she became my life, my everything..actually these words are not enough to explain that, and after she's gone my life is no less than hell. Just living in the hope that she'll come back one fine day and I'm sure if my love was real then she'll surely come back one day. Hmm I can't find anyone else seriously because according to me true love happens only once in life and it remain forever. I can't forget her. Even if she'll not come in my life again I would spend my life with those golden and unforgettable memories which she has given..I hope this post will help me to get her back..Baby please come back, without you I'm nothing, seriously nothing. And last but not the least I just wanna see her happy at any cost, seriously at any cost. Hmm wherever you are baby just be happy please..just keep smiling...I STILL LOVE U HONEY...

I'm such a foolish and immature person, my boyfriend is such a kind and sweet person yet I broke his heart and now he is gone. I never would have thought we would break up, because two weeks ago we are still happily together. He once promised me if I made a mistake, he would undo it. But it seems like he has broken that promise. I have tried to move on but it doesn't seem to work simply because I still love him. I asked him if he can still give me a chance, but he had already moved on the second day we broke up and said he would never want me back again. It hurts to hear him say that because I don't think I can live without him.

Last year, I fell in love with a guy named Ethen. He and I actually dated for about a month before I let a rumor get in the way of our relationship. Sadly enough, I heard the rumor from his best friend. Being the immature girl I was, I didn't talk to Ethen about the rumor. I was just hoping to have it drift away. But the situation only got worse. Finally, I broke up with him, scared and full of stupidity. Today I read a poem called 'Take Me Back'. I started to cry and wished I still had Ethen. He passes me daily and never even looks at me. I am in a black hole, softly crying and clinging to the delicate strand of hope. What am I to do?

Just exactly what I wish I could undo! Regret has taken the place of Love; Joy now far from my heart! Due to what I allowed to happen! She said goodbye to me eleven months ago; little did I know that the comfort to my heart is moving faraway! I never showed her much Love has she deserved; communication is what I lack with her and now I wish she can really hear everything my heart speaks even my deepest cry! I wish I could turn back the hands of time and never let her go; if only she can accept me back because I have turned to the opposite of what a reasonable man should be! If only everyone reading this can help me plead to her! Truly only FOOL like me never value what they have until it is lost!

This is exactly what I did to my ex. And I thought it was the right thing at the time, only it's not. He moved on and is now with this girl that has a reputation of playing guys, I'm scared she will hurt him because he is really sweet. I have tried to move on but that didn't really work, I just compared the guy to him and it just wasn't the same. I know I love him more than anything in the world, but the problem is, I'm pretty sure there are no more chances for me. This might help.

I love this poem because I hope its true, I hope my ex boyfriend is feeling this way, even though I know he isn't and it's kind of exactly what he did to me. I still love him and I just wish he would come back and regret leaving me. I wish I was still his and that he was still mine.

"HOW CAN I BE SO STUPID" Starts the poem. but I have my own story of being "stupid". because no matter how much love I showed her she always let me down. She went from me and came back I took her back and the same. This is a copy of a tag that a friend sent mean it reads. "DEFINITION OF STUPID:KNOWING THE TRUTH.SEEING THE TRUTH.BUT BELIEVING THE LIES" although she was not my girlfriend I loved her. But I guess she was just using me.

It's sad isn't it? To lose someone who means so much to you because of a stupid mistake you made. Wishing you could go back and change the decision. Living everyday with a regret knowing that things will never be the same. I don't know who I am anymore. My feelings for the person I like got the best of me. The other day I asked him to hate me. I know he didn't want to because I was an awesome and special friend to him, from day one. He helped me through so much including from self harm. And all I did was take it for granted. He means the world to me, one of the best friends I ever had. And I took our friendship and chucked it away like trash. I asked for his forgiveness and friendship back, he said yes. But things will never be the same.

I lost the love of my life to another lad as I was always busy working and trying to earn money to keep a roof over our head but now I realized you don't need money all I needed was her love and I just didn't take the time to notice. So, I wish I could go back in time and make things right, so I am going to read her this poem and hope she takes me back.

OMG, this poem has really touched my heart. Basically it brings back memories of what I did to my ex boyfriend. and now I just wish I could take everything back and things could be better as it was before. but he just wants to be friends because I have a new boyfriend that really loves me and I love him as much as he loves me. but I really think my ex is the one for me, but I don't want to leave my boyfriend because he's the one for me and we both know that.

I love this poem because I broke up with my ex boyfriend and got a new boyfriend and. I regretted that I ever moved on because I still love my ex boyfriend and he still loves me to but he says that we can't get back together because I'm in a relationship with someone else and he doesn't want to mess up my new relationship with my other boyfriend but I sent him this poem and I'm waiting to see if he will forgive me and take me back and I hope that he realizes that he's the one for me and that I still really love him

When I was in 4th grade I had a best friend named Tyler. He was my only friend. I was offered to be homeschooled by the lady who owns the daycare I went to. I took it. I left Tyler behind. 2 years later I realized I had a crush on him. My mom wasn't surprised she said we were close as ever. I saw him in 8th grade at a school dance I was invited too. All I did was stand around wondering if I could get more then "Hi" out if I went up to him. I wasted 3 hrs of my time. I went home and cried. I saw him about three more times after that and again "Hi". I lost him. If only I had stayed in public school. He is my Valentine's Day wish that won't come true and this reminds me of my story.

I hope this poem saves my relationship. Its speaks as if I had written for me. I am losing the love of my life and I can't help myself from damaging it more. Maybe this will be the bridge across the hurt and pain. Lets see...

well you know your stupid but there's never a "now its over" truly if you still have feelings. Just go back, there's NEVER a too late. Maybe the person you loved has moved on, but it's not too late to try, or to apologize. Go back, do something, because you'll never really end it, unless it's really over and you know it for sure.
