Lost Love Poem

I fell in love with my best friend, and when I told him how I felt he told me I wasn't ready for him and urged me to go out with other guys. When I went out I realized that my heart wouldn't allow me to, but it was already too late. I hurt him because he didn't expect me to give up on him that easily. But I want to fight for him and that is what I have been doing.

Is It To Late Or Is There Still Time?

©

Published: December 2008

If he is ready to date
I have no chance
I would already be too late
For there to be romance

She will complete his loneliness
And I will just be alone
She will be getting his kiss
And I'll be unknown

I can try to win his heart
But do I have a chance
I have to play this smart
And give this love a glance

He is worth the fight
He is worth so much more
I want to make this right
But will I see the door

As I look around and see
The pain I feel inside
I wish he would want me
To be by his side

But instead I hurt him so
And I want to make it right
I wish that he would know
He is all I think about at night

Does he think of me?
Does he feel the same?
Or is it what I see...
It is all just a game

So why does he do this
Why does he fight what is there
Is it because he is pissed
And not thinking clear

Or is it possible to see
That I am nothing for real
When he looks at me
How does he really feel?

I will never know this
Because he keeps it inside
See all this I'll miss
If I just step on by

To read his mind one day
Would be all I need
Then there would be no game
I would just see

Does he want me to go?
Walk away or at least try
Or does he want to know
I won't give up this time

To find a special someone
And see them walk away
Hurts the heart a ton
Like mine does everyday

I have no chance to be
The special girl in his eyes
I messed this up you see
So all I here is goodbye

How do I walk away?
From what I know could be
What else can I say?
To make him really see

How do I get the chance?
If he is looking else where
How do I get a glance?
If his head is somewhere

I know I could make this better
I could make this right
If he would just give me a chance
If he could see the light.

The fact is he won't
I am wasting my time
He will never want
My love or my mind.

So I walk away in tears
I don't look back at all
With all of the fears
I know what I saw.

I know what I had
And I lost it so
I did something bad
And forgiving me is a no.

So that is all
I hope he knew
I'll be waiting for a call
Saying I need you.

I know how it feels. Your poem made me cry. Thank you. I am trying to rekindle a flame with my wife. We have been together for 13 years and have 5 beautiful, smart kids. I love to write; it is my passion. She helped me when I hit rock bottom. I almost committed suicide, but because of her I am here today learning from other people's pain to show her I still love her and there is no other to compare her.
