Gone Forever


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2008 with permission of the Author.

I miss the times when you were here,
Telling me to have no fear.
To hold my head up high and strong,
Add happy notes to my sad song.

I miss the way you look at me
As if I were too blind to see.
The path I'm on might hurt and scathe,
But all goes well if you just have faith.

I miss the sound of your sweet voice,
Through bitter times a saving noise
That told me what was right and wrong
But rang in my ears for far too long.

A caring person, you were such
Who helped and hurt me, oh so much.
You'd guide and mislead me through the day
You left me lonely when I'd rather you stay.

Over things like that you had no control.
A rock set in motion will continue to roll.
No matter how hard you tug and heave,
You were always pushed and forced to leave.

Then one day you never returned,
My tears so hot they almost burned.
Aware now about what I lack,
But crying and mourning won't bring you back.

For me to let out what I need to say.
I can't do much more than pray.
No longer am I weak; my heart's quite strong
From adding a happy chorus to a sad, sad song.

I fell in love with my best friend. We met so unexpectedly, and we trusted each other immediately. We would talk for hours about his problems, about how he got dumbed by a girl he loved. I would cry on the phone with him expressing my feelings about a boy that I thought loved me. It's been 2 years now since we met. And after all the difficulties I have faced and the trust issues I had, I felt that I can fall in love again. But this time with him. The circumstances, though, keep us apart. We can't be together, and that's killing me. I got out of an extremely toxic relationship and for once I felt like I could restart. I don't know how to deal with this. I can't tell him something either...

My ex-wife had an affair another man ten years ago. Anyway, I have met a new girlfriend three months ago, and she had an affair with someone else. I can't understand why someone treats you like crap. What have I done wrong! In a real relationship, people should respect and love each other. I find it very hard to trust and believe it!

It's been three months since I came out of a toxic relationship. I definitely fell in love with a sociopath. I remember the beginning of our relationship was so beautiful and memorable but along the way...the toxicity rose. I became toxic, he was a sociopath. He broke up with me about 5 times and I potentially begged every time for him not to leave. He pitied me. I needed him. I needed someone. I was depressed and isolated and he was the only one who understood me. I wanted to latch on to that one thing that provided me more pain than relief. He guilt tripped me to heights, he made me feel inferior and unimportant. He was absolutely scurrilous and gave me the reputation of "psychotic." I may have lost my sanity and hurt him a few times, but that was because I had had enough of the inflicted pain. Now...I wish I could go back to it, knowing it would hurt me...I loved the pain. I stopped begging for his love and he stopped pitying me. He's moved on. I'm captivated by the memories.

It's been three months and 2 weeks since I have broken up with my boyfriend. He was a sex addict and I didn't know it. He was sleeping around with girls older than him, which I discovered a month later to our break up in my DM on Twitter. I loved him more than anything. The night he told he no longer needs me I cried my eyes out and begged him, but nonetheless he left. After knowing what made him breakup with me, I thought if he had told me, I would have forgiven him without a second thought. Until now, I still love him. I wish he could see this.

I've been with an alcoholic, but I didn't care. I just loved feeling in love the nights he would hold me saying he loved me, but then the alcohol hit him and all the name calling came with it, and for some reason he has me believing it's my fault. Days go by, and I cannot stop missing him. I go get him just to start the roller coaster all over. I don't know how to stop it. I love him so much. I'm here in bed crying because he did it again.

Hello! I have just come across this. I know it has been 5 months since you have posted this, but I just wanna know how are you doing? Are you okay right now? To be honest, sometimes we don't need anyone to survive. We are strong enough to be alone. I hope you are doing better now. Please don't turn to suicide or self-harm. I may not know you, but I can say that I'm here for you. Stay strong and try to move on. The right guy will come into your life. Till then be strong!

My boyfriend left me. I can't do this anymore. I'm in so much pain.

Don't resolve to self-harm or suicide. Find lonely moments in the woods for at least one hour a day. Know that tough times come to make you stronger and tougher. When you overcome these pains, you will be a great story to save many in depression. My prayers are directed towards you.

We are on the same situation right now. My girlfriend left me also. Just learn to make yourself busy. Divert your thoughts to other things. Call your friends, invite them to go out, go to the mall.

This poem really touched me in the sense to when I lost my guy best friend. We have been best friends since we were in the 5th grade and we are currently sophomores in high school. He was my world and I think maybe we were both realizing that feelings were starting to grow and we were scared because of our friendship. One day that all went to the trash when he kissed me and then avoided me and people started rumors and he believed them and not me. I was heartbroken and now it's been 4 months since we haven't talked and I do miss him a lot. But I believe that one day we will make up and maybe my dream of marrying my best friend will come true..

I'm absolutely in love with a guy who, unfortunately, no longer loves me back. I cry often because he was the only person who I trusted for a long time, I want a relationship, he wants a friendship now.. I feel like I lost my best friend who for a while felt like a boyfriend. I have now moved in with a friend and have not spoken with him for 4 months. I will always love him, for he was my first, I recently found out I am pregnant, although I know it is not his, I am naming my child after him in some way. It's crazy how one person can have SUCH an incredible impact on your life!

I miss my ex boyfriend of 2 and a half years, he asked me to marry him and dumped me a week later. I feel so lost and alone without him. He was my world and I was nothing but a girl to him. My heart will forever be broken. I know that no guy will ever love me. Every guy I have ever dated has tossed me aside.

Don't worry, my friend, two and a half years is just a number. It doesn't matter how many years we're in love. All it matters is if we're being honest and loyal to our partner and showing true love in that time. Nothing is permanent in this world. Even your broken heart will be a strong heart one day, and that is magic, and magic is love.

Idk who would see this comment but I lost the girl of my dreams because I lied about who I was and am. I was just so scared to lose her I mean she is so much better than me. I feel the strength. Of this poem 10xs harder and somebody skimming threw it.....I'm sport Brittany I know we will never be back together but I'm allowed to dream it in my head right? ? If I got the chance again I will keep this poem in my back pocket everyday and read it everyday to remind me how I feel now and not to lose her or feel lonely I mean no matter how many girls I get with I always feel lonely without her

Who would ever want un-wanted love? You are worth so much more. Love is an action. To show love, to laugh, to communicate together. Love yourself first and walk with your head up. I was loved for many years, but God needed his precious love. We will see each other one day.

Wow! This touched me. But in a relationship telling the truth is always the best thing because then you know you can really trust each other. The same thing happened to my boyfriend, I wasn't 100% honest with him.

My boyfriend of 2 years left me. Out of nowhere and he wont tell anybody why. We were so happy, and I am still so in love with him. I've tried to talk but he ignores me. He hates me. AUGH! ): . He's been so cruel to me since, and I still love him with everything.
