Lonely Poem

My boyfriend of a year broke up with me. I feel that I was and still am in love with him to this day. He doesn't understand my feelings for him whatsoever, and he probably never will.

Should Have Told You I Loved You


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2013 with permission of the Author.

You said you didn't love me.
You said you didn't care.
You said I wasn't worth it,
And then you gave me a stupid stare.

I told you that was fine.
I told you I didn't mind.
I told you I wasn't upset,
And with that you left me behind.

Now I think about what happened
As I cry myself to sleep.
I tell myself that I'll be fine
And that I shouldn't have to weep.

I tell my family I am happy.
I tell my friends I'm OK.
But what I really am feeling
Inside of me is starting to go grey.

I should have told you I loved you.
I should have told you to stay.
But you said you didn't want to anymore,
And you turned away.

Now as we talk,
We joke, laugh, and play.
You think I've moved on,
While inside of me I am screaming, "STAY!"

You said you didn't love me.
I said I didn't care.
As I think about and regret it,
I know what we have we don't share.

I fell in love with the school captain. He was so hot and he fit my criteria of a boyfriend, so I told myself that he would be mine. I made sure of it in some corny way, but we ended up together. But before we started dating, I lost someone close to me and that made me vulnerable, so I dated him out the grief I felt, the pain, the loneliness, and it got worse. Every time I told him I loved him I wasn't sure I meant it. After dating for 3 months, I was sure I loved him, but I wasn't able to say it. He thought I lost interest in him, so we broke up. Well, he broke up with me. He told me I should get skinny and I would get any guy in the world. The next day after the break up he writes a song about me, insulting me, saying that I didn't know how I hurt him, how much pain he's in. But I loved him. I just didn't know how to say it anymore. I still love him to date, and it hurts so bad to see him dating someone else. It's killing me right now.

I'm a junior, but this happened in my freshman-sophomore years. I became friends with a strange but well-known jock. He was kinda considered a class smarty pants. Within three months of our friendship, I developed feelings for him but decided not to say anything because of the horrors happening to me with my family's anger problems. The sophomore year came, and he fell for this girl in his class. They soon started dating, and I became an outcast or the third wheel every now and again. After months, their relationsihp suddenly came to an end because she didn't feel the spark that they had back then. The breakup left him in shambles that I thought I could fix with some emotional support. Soon after Christmas break I confessed my feelings to him. Then I was told that I would only ever be an outsider to him because to him I was only a mere weirdo.

I'm a sophomore, and when I was in 6th grade, I liked a guy, and we would always flirt. Then in 7th grade we started dating, but it was the worst relationship. We wouldn't talk to each other or even look at each other. We would just text by Chromebook or on Instagram, and I would always lie, and I was scared to say "I love you." I haven't moved on, but I think he has. I miss him very much.

I had a really big crush on this guy, and he just told me that he would never date me. He hurt me badly, and then he tried to date me a year later. I told him I can never date him because he already hurt me and I could not trust him not to hurt me again because it took at least 2 months to get over it. But now I am happy as I can be.

I never felt that way like you do. but I am always alone. My family would ask why am I doing this, why am I doing that, but they never ask me if I am okay or if something is wrong. I always felt alone. I was going through depression.

So sad to read this. I wish whatever happened with you, this happened at least once with him too. Maybe then he will be able to understand you.

I understand how you feel. I had a big crush on a guy and I kissed him and he broke my heart.
