My heart is now in so much pain.
My tears are falling like pouring rain.

I can no longer sleep a full night.
I can no longer fight.

We broke each other's hearts.
We were torn apart.

We are no longer together.
What happened to forever?

No one can save me from the dark's might.
This time there will be no light.
I'm not going to fight.

There's no reason to.
When I did fight, it was for you.

I know I never did show how I felt.
Just believe me,
every time I saw you,
my heart would melt.

Just know...
I loved you then,
I love you still.
I promise
I always will.

I don't know why
we had to say our goodbyes...
but I'll love you till the day I die.

My heart is broken,
but I still have hope.

One day
we might get back together.
Maybe next time will be forever.

Yes, I was touched by this poem. They say nothing is forever, but I don't believe that! Love can be and is beautiful. The more you love someone, the bigger the hurt if something goes wrong. And if you are hurting, put some effort into it and chase her/him. Maybe this is a test to see how much you love her/him. True love is beautiful. It comes from the heart, and you sound like you are hurting so much. Don't let go without a fight to hang on. Do something, anything. Make an effort. Send a gift with your poem. But let go if you don't feel the love in return. Make an effort, but don't become a nuisance. If you win him/her back, learn from this and always do loving things. Little things mean a lot.

So are you going to wallow in self pity or go after what you want and love? Convince your loved one that you are sorry and show him/her that you now know what you feel is TRUE LOVE. I hope this helps you...good luck!

I really love this poem. I even sent it to my ex-girlfriend.

I can relate to this poem so much, and it scared me a little. I am thinking about breaking up with my boyfriend of 3 years, and it is literally breaking my heart. I don't want to give up on him, but I don't like how the relationship is going and how he is treating me.

I have loved
The boy
Who left in
The end

For we were just
Children in
Lust, not love
At least for me

Forgive us
For we were young
So dumb
And so naive.
