Lost Love Poem

I Lost My Chance With You

This is about someone I care about a lot, and I waited until it was too late to tell them how I felt. Now they like someone else, and I don't have much of a chance to get them back.

I have liked this guy for 3 years, and I know he liked me too (don't know if he still does). I still haven't told him, and I only see him every once and a while. I bet he's moved on though,...

I Could

Published: April 2017

I could dream of you forever,
But it wouldn't put me beside you.

I could call your name on end,
But you'll never hear me.

I could ask a million questions,
But I'll never get the answer I want.

I could write a hundred poems,
But you would still never understand.

I could have said it before it was time to leave,
But I said it in a little note.

I could try to forget what I feel,
But I've pushed too much out already.

I could lie to myself,
But lying exhausts the soul.

I could give up on you,
But too much of me still loves you.

I have liked this guy for 3 years, and I know he liked me too (don't know if he still does). I still haven't told him, and I only see him every once and a while. I bet he's moved on though, but the worst part is the unknown. Especially because his niece is one of my best and closest friends, and all I ever want to blurt out is "How is he?" Or "Does he still care about me?" "Does he ever mention me?" But I have no idea what to do. And I can't stop loving him because "too much of me already loves" him.

Wow the poem reminds me about my crush, and I had feelings for him for almost 5 years. It's true when the poem said, "I could give up on you, but too much of me still loves you." I tried too hard to forget him, but I can't forget him even when I know that he had a new girlfriend.

The boy I had a crush on moved across the country and I never had a chance to tell him I loved him. It happened last month and my heart still hurts. This poem is so similar to my life and I don't have anyone else to relate to.
