Breaking Up Poem

Losing Someone You Love

I met someone, and as the years passed me by, I fell in love. As every couple does, we experienced complications, which led him to seek happiness with someone else. The love I've had for him, which I'll always have for him. is the inspiration for this very poem.

Love Is Rare

I remember the good things we used to share,
The happiness we endured, the deep love and care.

The air was as light as a feather;
I looked at you as you were my forever.

But it all came crashing down,
Then I realized I've been a fool, a clown.

My heart in anguish as your eyes avert my gaze,
All the love fading from your eyes these passing days.

My heart cracked as you pulled away,
Telling me that today was the day.

I know that love is often rare,
But your love is a loss I cannot bear.

So I breathe in the cold, cold air,
Sitting alone in silence on a wooden chair.

The tears I cry each and every day
Seem to fade as my mind wandered astray.

I would never force you to stay,
Even if it meant my world would be gray.

Your happiness is my only hope,
So without you, I must try to cope.

Please write more poems. I loved this one so much!!

I like the poem. I learned as a young adult that I couldn't make anyone do anything, especially love me. And I also figured out it was not in me to be with someone who didn't want to be with me. Sometimes moving on is the best thing to do.
