Poem About Loving Someone You Can Never Have

Over the past few months, I have learned what it feels like to accidentally fall in love with someone who is already taken. I have never felt a pain like this. I am an educated and self-sufficient woman. Normally I am one to make sound decisions, but this was unpreventable. I am trying to find any way possible to keep these feelings from bottling up inside. Hopefully these feelings will pass. I am sure there is someone out there with a similar situation, though I would not wish this upon anyone.

I think what you had to say was amazing. That is how I felt with my love. It was such an intense desire to be around her, and I've recently gotten back in touch with her. I know it's hard to...

The Worst Pain Known To Me


Published by Family Friend Poems October 2020 with permission of the Author.

The worst pain known to me
Is to be stuck on a love that never could be,
To love someone who'll never be free.
The worst pain known to me.

My heart aches unfathomably
Knowing he too wishes it could be
Him and me forever with glee.
The worst pain known to me.

He has each and every quality
That I desire continuously.
I try to forget him persistently.
The worst pain known to me.

Living each day with monotony.
Smiling with false positivity,
Hoping that soon it'll be history.
The worst pain known to me.

I had an affair with a married man for 8 months. I love him like I never loved someone before, but he chose his family. The pain is killing me, and I don't know how to get through it. This poem says it all.

I have never cared about someone so much in my life. I have loved her with all my heart and being, though it was never my duty to. How could it ever be? She is someone else's. I've vowed to always be able to do so, to care for her this way and to remind her that unconditional love exists. I believe I can do it. I have nothing else in my life. But someday, the truth of never having her to myself drops on me like a boulder. And it suffocates. And it hurts in the worst ways.

This was my first love.....for whom I fell for....I know there is no possibility of being together in the future...but still I'm falling in love with him day by day intensely. ....every time I'm deciding to hate him avoid him more....but when I was in front of him I forgot how to hate him...I forgot how to avoid him....I want to be a successful independent girl...but every time when it comes to him I stopped once and tears are coming out of pain of not being together...I wish I had never been love then but now I will be the happiest girl in this earth. ...because he was the first person to whom I love unconditionally. I don't want to be in love with you, but I can't stop myself from loving you...I missed you, my love....I love you, my love....

I think what you had to say was amazing. That is how I felt with my love. It was such an intense desire to be around her, and I've recently gotten back in touch with her. I know it's hard to be in love, and I know you can't touch her or be touched for the first time. Over the last 15 years I finally got to hold my one true love. She's not mine yet, but honestly, hold out for that moment because if it happens you'll find out that it's just amazing. It's a feeling like no other. Everything will come running back, and even though the low is so low, you have to hold out for those little happy moments. That's what will make you truly happy in life -- just finding those little happy, thankful moments. Sometimes they are better than expected. I thank God I got to hold my one true love again. I hope you have a good day.
