Heartbreak Poem by Teens

Being rejected by someone you like is hard to go through. That is what inspired me to write this. After basically being rejected by this guy I was crushing on, I had all these thoughts going through my head, and I just started writing. This is how it turned out. Please feel free to leave comments.

Tears No More


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011 with permission of the Author.

I told you how I felt,
But you turned the other cheek.
I was basically rejected.
I feel so small, so very weak.

I found the reason why I always keep to myself.
I hate this feeling of pain
Of being rejected like I'm not good enough.
This will happen never again.

I'm tired of letting people in.
I'm tired of being alone.
I'm tired of being rejected and hurt.
This is it; that feeling's gone.

I'm not gonna let you in.
I'm not gonna let you see my tears fall.
I'm not gonna let you see me hurt.
I'm not gonna let you bring me down most of all.

I told you how I felt
Because I wanted you to know,
But apparently you would never feel the same,
So I guess it's time for me to go.

I had just gotten rejected by a guy who I liked. He ended up cheating on me and lied to me. It hurt so much.

She was my best friend. I used to do everything with her. We walked together, late-night drives, and you wouldn't be able to separate us. I explained my love for her, and she seemed as though I was crazy. I thought it was clear that I liked her. She means the world to me. She could always put a smile on my face, but then again, I don't think I could have put a smile on my face to save my life. She told me it was never like that. I believe that I knew the answer before I even said anything. I wasn't surprised, but it hurt badly. That was last year we still are best friends. We haven't hung out in a while, but that would be because of Covid-19. I love her with every bone in my body, and I'm glad that I still have her in my life. I still feel the pain, but I will take what I can get.

I met him this year while I was in the process of leaving an abusive relationship. We met on a dating app and became besties. We told each other everything. Long story short, he lied to me after being intimate with him for the 2nd time. He ghosted me and disappeared. I never saw this coming from him. Everything was going good. I am trying to forget him each day that passes by. He's a jerk and I hope he never comes back. Ghosters love to come back. I hope he stays where he is because I don't need someone so immature.

So I had gotten to know this person, a girl, and we became best friends over time. I had started to realize I had special feelings for her. The day before Valentine's day, she told me that she loved me, and I was filled with joy so told her I loved her back. The next thing she told me was that she was just kidding. I felt so empty, sad, and angry right after that. I didn't know what to do...and this poem describes exactly how I felt. I couldn't have put it better myself. Thank you.

I feel like this spoke to me. I've been knowing this guy since high school and we talk almost everyday now, back then we lost contact but we've reconnected with one another. Ever since the day I told him how I felt I feel like I'm being judged now & he didn't reject me but I felt like he did. Now I'm stuck in this awkward position. Now my feelings aren't the same anymore.

I remember a few weeks ago.. I told the guy I loved that I loved him, but I totally forgot that he had a girlfriend. We're both far away from each other, but I guess I made a mistake with saying that. He said he didn't want to hurt me anymore, so he won't talk to me. He thinks I'll find someone better the next time he talks to me, but that won't happen for a while. I just wish he didn't play around with my feelings... <3

I liked a boy who I guess doesn't like me back and he made me look like a big fool in front of the class. I got tired of this crap I gave up and I'm not ever going back!

Being rejected hurts so very deeply..it makes you thinks of the good times you have shared with that person and the more you think about it the more you cry!

I know what its like...to be rejected. Only my story's different. He said he liked me too, and then he forgot me, like I was nothing. Loves a royal pain.
