Heartbreak Poem

Poem About Being Left In The Shadows

I met a boy a while back, and I fell in love with him. He left university and we stayed in contact, but then he suddenly cut me off and made me feel worthless. The hardest part of all this is that, although it was hard to move on from him, when I was moving on, he returns and I'm back to loving him, even though he doesn't care. I wanted to write this for me, to express my feelings and help the healing process.

In The Shadows

©

Published: January 2016

You left me in the shadows, alone in the dark.
I was left crying and upset the day you broke my heart.
I tried to move on and meet someone new,
But when I was in their arms, I wished it was you.
I tried and tried to push my feelings aside,
But my feelings for you I couldn't hide.
Time passed, and I changed and grew.
I matured and moved on from the person you knew.
I started to pick myself up, I saw the light,
Until I saw you that Saturday night.
For you played with heart like you did before,
Made me feel like we could be more,
But you left my life, like you did before.
No cares in the world when you walked through that door,
So now I'm in the shadows, alone in the dark,
Now crying and upset as you've broken my heart.

I met this boy eight years ago, in middle school. We had all our classes together, and we talked and gave each other challenging math problems when we'd get bored in class and just be super nerdy together yet be young children. He was a best friend, even though I never talked to him about things that bothered me - not because I couldn't, but because I always forgot all of my worries around him. Yet I hadn't liked him back then. Over the five years since, he became rude, arrogant, and rather anti-social, especially towards girls, so I hated him.

Then eleventh grade came, and we started talking again somehow. And I fell in love w/ him. His dry wit, his remarkable intelligence, his sarcastic humor, mocking smile, and eyes that sparkled with delightful mischief whenever he teased those around him. Senior year French class was even better. But then he kicked me out of his life b/c I "talked to him too much on social media". I've tried getting over him, but it seems I'll never forget him.

I was heartbroken by this boy I liked who hated me more than anything. I cried inside for a month, fighting back the tears of heartbreak. I went to school. The horrible part is that I am in the same class as him. So every day I fight back the tears of heartbreak.
