Lost Love Poem

I just wrote this poem a while ago; my boyfriend and I broke up and he chose another girl over me despite the fact that we're having a baby; he literally pushed me away, and I'll always remember his last words, "Please, just please let me go. I don't love you anymore!" It hurts so much; I just hope I'll be able to forget him and go on with my life.

Moving On

Published: November 2009

I treasured you in my heart.
I wish we'd never be apart
Because you're the best thing I've ever had.
I never thought I could be this sad.

You told me you're better off alone.
Somehow I believed you, and I tried to be strong.
Deep inside me I know something is wrong,
But because I loved you I continued to hold on.

And then one day I woke up with tears in my eyes.
I told myself "that's enough" and so I realized
That I've given everything I've ever had,
But despite all of these, you chose to break my heart.

It's true I've never been perfect,
But I thought you told me that everyone has its own defects.
I know I hurt you; I know I made you cry,
But I've always been true to you; my love was never a lie.

So go on, live your life the way it should be.
I'm finally letting go, so now you're free.
I'm moving on, but I will always remember
The friend I had in you that I hope I'll have forever.

I am a young man who is struggling with the past as well. I dated my ex-girlfriend for two consecutive years, and nothing seemed to worry me. No fleeting shadow ever crossed our way. But then it came to pass that she broke up the relationship without a warning. She left me not knowing what to do or how to move on with my life. I am still desperate despite it being a year since the breakup. It’s not always the women that are heartbroken!

I am a man who is going thru this now with my fiancé. Men have feelings too and men get hurt just as much as women only we choose not to show it. I am literally broken up over this. I know I will move on but my Jenny will always be on my mind and forever in my heart.

Ditto! I read your heartfelt poem and it said everything I feel right now. It's been two years since he left. 5 months after he left I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I struggled through chemo but now treatment is over I'm still grieving for him and what we had. Thank you for your poem.
