Ode To You

Published: May 2015

Every morning I see your face,
And for that fleeting second I'm in a different place,
A place where we smiled, laughed, and talked,
A place where we could hold hands wherever we walked,
I'm reminded of this each and every day.
Then the sleep clears and it's all blown away.

Realization sets in and I'm all alone.
I quickly have to check my phone
In case you've called or sent me a text.
Then it hits harder as what come next
Is the empty screen with your smiling face
And the emptiness of this forsaken place.

I wither up inside as all my hopes disappear
And the burn in my heart really starts to sear.
I sink back in my bed and think of you
And wonder if there's anything I can do.
I'm knocked back every time I try to get through,
And now the decision is up to you.

Leave me out here in the cold and the rain,
Leave me to choke on the tears and the pain,
Missing you every minute of every day,
Loving you more and more in my way.
One day, my love, this will all be like a dream.
I just hope we can dream it together in our place so serene.

He was a friend. I didn't know the exact moment I fell in love. It wasn't supposed to happen, but we grew close. He knew me and he got to know my deepest secrets. He made me so happy, so happy that I can't really find words to describe. But then he found love and happiness with someone else. Someone who is not me. It's been more than 6 months. I try to move on, but sometimes I remember him and break down in tears. I want him to be happy, but why can't it be with me?

My love and I broke up a month or two ago. Yes, I hurt him more than he hurt me after we broke up, but I truly miss him. He is the most amazing guy ever. He cares about me still, and I love him so much. I just hope we can be together again.

Wow, I loved this poem so much. Although I’ve never fallen in love, it helps me as an aspiring R&B artist. When I read it, I imagine the pain I could experience after a breakup, but it never discouraged me from my hope of falling in love one day. Thanks, and keep it up.

My boyfriend broke up with me two days ago. I see him on my screen, and I'm reminded of him when I just want to forget. There is even that hole inside of me, inside of my heart, where I keep him. I had so many hopes and dreams. When I remember all this, I'm also reminded of the break up. It hurts so much that I wished, that it didn't exist, but I'm so foolish because I'm waiting for him to come to a decision. I cry myself to sleep. That's not the person I am. I can't think of him or I'll start to cry. I have lost my appetite, so I don't eat much. This just seems to be a dream, and I wish that I would just wake up. It. Hurts. So. Much. I love him.

My girlfriend broke up with me about 4 months ago now (even though it feels like just yesterday we were hand in hand, smiling ear to ear, with absolutely no worries...). And upon reading this poem I can't help but feel it describes my situation all too well. The pain. The constant reminder in your head that feels like one great big stab in the heart. The sadness that blocks even the brightest of days. Waiting ever so patiently for her to realize that we are soul mates, meant to be. But at the same time, slowly accepting the fact that the love once shared has now become one sided. But we still will wait. And we'll wait forever.

This poem reflects how I feel. My girlfriend broke up with me a few months ago, and ever since, I have wanted to be with her again. Every day I see her reminds me of the good times we had together. It is also a constant reminder that we will never be together again. I am not sure what I did wrong. I just hope that one day she will come back again.
