  1. 21. You're Better Off Without Me

    I often picture what it would be like to see you again. To hear your voice, or feel the weight of your hand in mine. I rehearse what I'd say to you, whether or not I'd tell you about the poetry, how I'd reply if you asked me if I was happy, yet.

    But the truth is I'll never tell you any of it. I won't call or find my way to your door. As much as I miss you, I know that you will want to love me - to pick up the pieces of me and hold them together, the way you always used to. And we'll end up back where we were, with you ignoring how much it hurt to try and love me - still giving even when there's nothing left for me to take.

    If we're honest, we both know you're better off without me. If I really want you to be happy, then I have to accept that it means being far away from me. So I will love you from a distance, even if that means you believe the worst of me.

    I’ve written you
    so many letters
    I won’t send.
    I’ve rehearsed

  2. 22. My Storm

    This poem is about accepting a fate that was foreseen but all too tragic anyway.

    So awkward in the morning, just a little unsure
    A little off your game, but it all felt so pure
    We knew from the beginning that this was going to hurt
    From floating in the clouds, to face down in the dirt

  3. 23. Let Me

    I'm basically expressing my anger towards my ex. After breaking up with me in the rudest way he possibly could, he had the nerve to ask me to still be his friend.

    Let me go one day
    without looking at you, please.

    Let me sleep one night

  4. 24. Hollow

    • By Brittany N. Rudd
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2016

    I met this guy my sophomore year of high school when he came in as a freshman. We got to know one another, and I developed a crush on him. Around January of that same school year he kissed me. I'd never had feelings for someone so strong. I was always willing to do anything and everything for him. I thought he cared about me too and that I was the only one, but that's never the case, is it? I comforted him and protected him, only to get treated like a side piece. Three years later and I still care so much.

    I want to have feelings and be somebody.
    My empty chest longs for the warmth of a heart,
    To feel the rhythmic beatings.
    All the butterflies have withered to dust,

  5. 25. When We

    This is written from experiencing a marriage and several relationships with a "bad boy." My home girl and I have spent years watching, waiting, and standing behind our ol' men who have lied, cheated, abused, been locked up, and taken us for granted. It seems like an endless cycle until we either win, lose, give up, or die.

    When all we hear are the empty promises and lies
    That leave behind broken hearts and shattered lives,
    When trust is gone and hope is lost,
    What are we fighting for and who really pays the cost?

  6. 26. Lost

    • By Shelli
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2009

    Poem about being confused by breakup.

    I thought it was a dream; I thought it wasn't real,
    But pain really hurts and it's really how I feel.
    Memories keep coming back, and so do all of the tears.
    I hear your voice, and as quick as the smile came, it quickly disappears.

  7. 27. Unconditionally Painfully In Love

    • By Jasmine S. Johnson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2009

    My name is Jasmine, and I have a man I love with all of my heart. But we love with pain. In this poem I am letting people know that you don't have to love with pain. You can stop it at any time. But in my situation I just don't know how to stop it. Or I may have gotten so immune to it that I am afraid to find the outcome of it when I do stop.

    This pain is taking its toll,
    But my love it never gets old.
    The trials and defeated emotions
    Keeping me sane with magical potions.

  9. 29. My Memories

    • By Graham Chaplin
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2016

    This poem is about the loss of a girl I loved so very much when I was young. Sadly, I let her slip away because I could not believe that I was worthy of her. Now many years later, I feel that I must pay tribute to that love.

    My memories are sacred of the you I used to know.
    I remember all the places where you and I would go.

    Time has made me older, and life has made me old.

  10. 30. Painful Memories

    • By Mary Grace Sabucdalao
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2016

    Trying to forget the feelings is like trying to remember someone you never met. It's hard but possible.

    I want to run, I want to hide
    From all the pain you engraved inside.
    I want to shout, I want to cry.
    Why can't I tell you goodbye?

  12. 32. Is It Worth The Pain?

    • By Caity
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2013

    I have been with my boyfriend for almost three years. I was only 17 and he was 28 when we started dating. I was still stupid and partying and started using drugs. I lied to him and really hurt him, and he became physically abusive. We love each other and decided to work on it, and we now have a baby together. But he still cannot get over the past, and it's gotten to the point where I feel trampled all over and tired of trying...I love him and I know he loves me, but should it be this hard?

    Saying you loved me, with that look in your eye.
    I wish I could say it was a cold-hearted lie.
    I know that you love me, I know that you care,
    But the rage inside you slowly flared.

    No roses, no candy, no darling or dear...

    but when it comes time... there's no one to buy.

    All the disrespect, and abuse,
    My love was always true.

  16. 36. Lost Love

    • By Robert B. Wolfe
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2016

    This is about my first love that I gave up when I went into the service. I never stopped loving her.

    As I sit and ponder the day away.
    I remember the young love I gave away.
    I searched for a love like I left behind,
    Too young to realize she was one of a kind.

  17. 37. The Cycle

    This poet writes with perhaps some pessimism that the nature of all love is ultimately to end in sorrow.

    Why do we feel such strong emotion,
    Of complete care and pure devotion.
    It seems to bring just pain and fear,
    Along with shame and then the tears.

    holding back as a tear hits the pillow,
    scared of thoughts I might find.
