Poem About The Past Interfering With Present Relationships

This poem is about a love I had experienced, but it would always only get so far before both of our insecurities would cause us to fight. We would go our separate ways, but our love never faded and we always made our way back to each other.

Love's Journey

Published: February 2015

When my eyes are locked with his
My lips are longing for his kiss
I feel a love I've never known
Yet my heart feels so alone
When our bodies are intertwined
And his hand is locked in mine
We're laying there cheek to cheek
Listening to our souls speak
We share our dreams, we share our fears
We're not afraid to shed our tears
We can cry and we can laugh
But we're burdened by our pasts
Jealousy begins to swell
Why can't happiness just prevail
Laughter always turns to anger
Our love is once again in danger
Good times don't ever seem to last
We can blame that on our past
Life has made us who we are
We never seem to get too far,
My soul will never really know
How to ever let you go
This love we have was unexpected
My heart is left unprotected,
I feel our paths were meant to cross
Before you, my soul was lost
Life's journey's leading me to you
I need us both to see this through,
I want a love that others envy
And a heart that isn't empty
I want you to cause my biggest smiles
Ones that can be seen for miles,
How can our story ever start
If we won't open up our hearts
I never want our love to end
You're my lover and my best friend,
I'm willing to work to make this last
Leaving our pasts in the past
Love builds from trust, honesty, and respect
I'll give it to you and it's what I'll expect,
So don't give up on what we have
Let's build it up and make it last
It'll be worth it, I promise you this
Our love is one that we would miss
My heart and soul are lost without you
Let's let love's destiny see us through
You're my soulmate, you were made for me
You're my heart's final destiny

I’ve had a boyfriend for almost two years. Apparently, he’s still connected with his ex-girlfriend, but every time I try to confront him he keeps on telling me it was nothing and that there is nothing going on between them. He constantly tells me that I am the only one and always will be. I’m suck in confusion between what’s truth and what’s a lie. But somehow I realized that he was a good man to me. He never fails to make me feel loved. He even introduced me to his family, which he never did to his ex. So I choose to believe him and trust the love I have for him because I know I am fighting for my happiness.

I also had a boyfriend like that. He introduced me to his family. He still was in touch with ex. He told me there is nothing going on between them until one day I found out that he was still in love with his ex. He always makes me feel loved, so I never thought that he would still be having feelings towards his ex.
