Heartbreak Poem by Teens

Grief, sadness, death...old problems I've faced, but today I'm getting past them. The problem I've failed to beat is my one-sided love, the one lost in the waves of my life but is still there to press on my heart wound every time I close my eyes.

My One-Sided Love

default © more by Hussein A. Termos

Published: July 2018

My love to her is a roaring fire.
She's all I ever did or will desire.
Without her I am no more,
'Cause she's all I live for.

She's my red colored rose,
Yet I don't know why her I chose.
Guess that's the way the heart is,
That way of working is only his.

I hide behind a "hey" or a "hi,"
But the truth is that I'm just too shy.
The truth is that I'm just too scared
Of her reaction if she knew I cared.

Every day my feelings I fight,
Try to change them, make them right,
But they already long ago are,
They already went too far.

Sometimes I feel like a creep.
I feel I'm on a mountain that's too steep.
Sometimes at night I can't even sleep
Because of what's hidden down deep.

In my experience, a boy with the courage to put it all out there for all to see is not only rare, it's inspiring! I am so proud that the author took this step. He has set an amazing example. The poem spoke to me by quickly bringing me back to my youth when love felt so real and heartbreaks so painful. Yet interestingly, while submitting the poem is a bold step, the text of the poem describes the plight of a boy too shy to even approach his love. How brutally honest - he simply accepts that he's a nobody - certainly not "worthy" of this girl. I can't help but wonder where this self-assessment originated and what has continued to fuel it. As pervasive as this lack of self-worth is in our culture's youth, I still dream of a day where young people do not buy into it. I dream of a day where young people can stand tall with the confidence to take a chance and the insight to accept rejection without crumbling. Well done. Excellent role model.

This poem was written by a boy proving not only us girls feel emotionally. We are all taught to believe men are strong and tough and don't feel anything when actually they feel more than us but are just forced to hide it in either art or writing. This poem touches me because it shows that men, boys, girls, women are all human and we're all the same. No one is perfect, and it's time society and the world start realizing and acting like it.
