Heartbreak Poem by Teens

I met my ex through a mutual friend. We were together for about five months. I'm never the one to get attached easily. But with him it was different. I thought he was different. His voice replays in my head. I can barely breathe without him. I don't know what happened. But I can't get over him. I have a new boyfriend. And I still wish for my ex. I'm being forced to live without the one person I would die without. Now when I see him, and I'm forced to stay and hangout with him. I die inside.

When Did Letting Go Become So Hard?


Published by Family Friend Poems July 2012 with permission of the Author.

I remember your laugh
I remember your smile
I remember your touch
Though it's been awhile

I miss your gaze
I miss your sweet kiss
I miss being with you
It was unforgettable bliss

I know you don't miss me
I know you've moved on
I know I should forget you
But I'm just not that strong

I still recall the words
I still recall what was said
I still recall the promises
The things you never meant

I'm sorry I'm not OK
I'm sorry I'm not stronger
I'm sorry I'm still in love with you
And I can't do this much longer

I don't know how to live without you
I don't know how to survive
I don't know what it is about you
That makes me weak inside

I'm usually the one who deals
I'm usually the one that's fine
I'm usually OK with break ups
But I miss you being mine

At first it was infatuation
At first it was just a faze
At first it was something I would end
But now I barely make it through the day

I never attached this easily
I never lose this fight
I never let my heart get broken
But now I cry myself to sleep at night

I don't remember it being this difficult
I don't remember not being able to laugh
I don't remember being so distraught about it
When did letting go become so hard?
