Sad Poem about Love

I wrote this poem for my ex-boyfriend. I loved him so much, he messed up, so I had to let him go. So for all you broken hearted people out there, I know what you're going through, and this poem is for you people too.

Even if it’s your mistake, you shouldn’t be sending him any texts or even calling him because if he wanted you, he wouldn’t have to wait for your call. He would man up, so go out and find...

Getting Over You

©

Published: November 2007

I'm sitting her trying to get over you.
Let's get one thing straight; I'm only 19 and tried to run away
Because I was so hurt and didn't know what to do.
I was lost and it was all because of you.
I gave you my heart to take care of it,
But all you ever did was break it.
Now I'm sitting here trying to get out of this mess.
If you got something to say, save it,
Because all you're doing is wasting your breath.
I'm sitting here trying to get you out of my head.
You're wasting my time, so there's nothing else to be said.

I'm 17 and been with my boyfriend for 2 years and 10 months. We don't know why were together anymore all we do is fight and curse all the time. The worst part is, is letting him go. When he is the most important thing in your life it's hard to say goodbye. As he starts to let go of you its harder because all you want to do is fight for him to stay and to not let you go. All I'm trying to say is hey you're young no matter what happens there is always other guys out there, that will always be better. Don't take life to fast. If you don't want to be with your partner don't hold on to him any longer. Say goodbye !

I dated a guy and we broke up but I can't forget him it's like he is my whole life and I can't get him out of my mind!!! He made me whole and I told him but he won't reply on my text messages or even on my calls!!!

I'm going through a break up with my ex and I'm 14 and u know I'm trying to find love but apparently I'm looking in the wrong places but the break up is making me stronger as a person and a human being all together and this poem is making me look further and wiser and really having me think about things... Honestly

You're 14 years old. I think it's a little young for you to be in love. Sorry about that, but you will have lots of chances to fall in love again and again.

Don't look for love, love will look for you. I believe that everything happens for a reason, so maybe your heartbreak made you into a better person.
