  1. 21. Or Is It Just Me?

    • By Sarah
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2009

    My baby's dad and I are not together. We don't ever see each other and never talk. He's never met his 5 month old son..but 1 day. I don't see a father-son relationship coming soon.

    He's Never Met His Son

    We met at Wal-Mart
    I needed formula
    I had to ask him
    I had no money
    You should have seen it
    The way he looked at me
    Those eyes
    Piercing me
    My heart
    It made me think about what was
    What could have been
    He can see through my front
    He knows I still care
    I still have love
    In his eyes I could see
    Somewhere behind that
    Thug want to-be
    He still cares
    It hurt
    It was the first time
    The way he held him
    Looked so right
    It came to an end
    We went our separate ways
    It's been a day
    Was it really that simple
    To just walk away
    I'm not going to call or text
    I'm done trying
    If it was that simple
    There's nothing more
    I can do
    Or say

  2. 22. Hopeless Love

    • By Nora
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008

    Poem about being hurt by love and not feeling loved. Breaking up but still loving him and struggling to realize he doesn't love you.

    No stupid love song can describe how I feel
    Sometimes the words other people say
    Are never good enough or real
    No one will ever know how I'm feeling today

    I put my hopes up way too high
    I thought you'd feel the same way
    Now all I need to not do is cry
    Because tears won't take the pain away

    For a moment I thought you knew
    For a moment I thought you cared
    For a moment I thought you meant "I love you"
    For a moment I thought you appreciated the love we shared

    What do you know anyway?
    You're just a guy
    Have your fun today
    And tomorrow make me cry

    I'll fake my smile
    I'll say I'm okay
    I'll be happy for a while
    And be dead inside

    I kept on calling you sweet
    Little did I know
    Your love is the one thing I can't beat
    I just can't seem to let you go!

    You make me feel like such a fool
    I don't want to love you
    Why did love have to be so cruel?
    Why is there nothing that I can do?

    Love can sometimes be great
    That's something I cannot deny
    But when it turns into hate
    He won't be just "another guy"

    He'll be the guy that broke you into pieces
    He'll be the guy that made you a mess
    He'll be the love that slowly ceases
    After you finally confess

    Listening to that song
    Makes me feel like the stupidest girl alive
    It made me realize that what I felt was wrong
    Because I won't get you no matter how much I strive.

  3. 23. Love Gone Wrong

    • By Labrina
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2007

    This is about a girl who was in love once and only once. It was perfect love, but they had to ruin it. Now it is a mystery of his thoughts.

    Sometimes I wonder how you do it.
    How can you sit back and watch yourself hurt someone so bad and not feel any guilt?
    You say things to me, about me, or behind me.
    And you still look at me the same way.
    With those eyes of green searching for the answers inside me.
    You want to know everything.
    You want to know how I feel
    And if I am truly hurting inside.
    You just have to ask
    And I'll tell you.
    I'll tell you that you were the first boy I ever loved.
    You were the one who took my heart and locked it inside of yours.
    You placed my fingers in between each of yours.
    And in the end,
    You took that heart and you shredded it to pieces.
    You could have just ripped it in half.
    Then it would be easier to put back together.
    But instead,
    You tore it.
    Piece by piece, you shredded it,
    And no one can fix it.
    No one wants to.
    Because they look at what you made me.
    A girl with permanent tears painted on my face.
    I am now just an empty void.
    There is no desire to want to love again.
    Because now there is only the fear of ruining
    What I have tried so hard to build up.

    • By Keioma Livan
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2015

    Have you ever been in love with someone who, for some reason or another, just can't love you back or at the least can't love you the way you want them to? If so, this is the poem for you.

    Poem About Someone Who Seeks True Love

    Just saying your name makes me realize
    how much meaning you add to my life.
    I watch your actions every day
    and long to hold and kiss you when I'm awake,
    but reality dawns a rainy day,
    a world of fantasy and dismay.

    In my dreams I make you mine.
    I hold you 'til the end of time,
    but when I awake to find that you're not there,
    my world is full of sorrow and despair,
    and reality, like a rushing wind, destroys my hope,
    my everything.

  5. 25. I Want To

    I want to write about how you make me feel,
    How every time I see your face I know that you're real.
    I can't describe the feeling you always raise in me.
    I can't describe this wash of happiness that you seem to bring,
    But I want to write about it; I want to write about you.

    I want to write about that day we shared,
    How every time you would laugh it would linger in the air.
    I can't describe the loving look in your eyes.
    I can't describe the reason why you won't say, "Goodbye."
    But I want to write about it; I want to write about you.

    I want to write about all our memories, all our stories, and adventures,
    How we conquered them together,
    But I can't describe the paths we took.
    I can't describe the sense of security I felt in that one look.
    But I want to; I want to write about you.

    I want to write about us,
    How everything felt was true love, not lust,
    But I can't describe anything without you.
    I can't describe all our hopes and dreams,
    How everything that was so perfect left in a fleet of screams.

    I want to write,
    But I can't explain how our plans got so disarrayed,
    How God just had to take you away.
    I can't describe this sudden feeling I have to be by your side,
    How even through death I have to hide all that I feel inside.

    I want to write, but I forget how to describe what is meant.
    I want to write about you, but I can't.
    I can't describe the feeling of lost, the feeling of what it all cost
    Or of the silent screams, the lovely dreams with just you and me,
    But I want to.

  6. 26. Faithful, Unsure Love

    • By Shana Worthen
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2008

    I dedicate this to all the girls who have been hurt by guys they thought loved them. Don't let them stop you.

    Through all the storms and struggles-
    All the fights and tussles,
    All the disrespect, and abuse,
    My love was always true.

    When you made me cry, made me feel unloved,
    I was always there by your side.
    No matter what you did or what you said,
    I was proud to be your girl.

    My love for you is greater than anything in this world.
    You know that no one can love you like I do.
    Everything we have been through,
    I was faithful to you and only you.

    I was your girl, your boo;
    But all you ever did was treat me like garbage.
    You said, "Baby, you know I love you."
    But true love doesn't break my heart.

    I tried and tried to look past it,
    But the more I tried, the more I saw the real you.
    All the lies, all the deceit,
    You must have thought you were slick.

    To love you more than anything
    Would be ignorant on my part.
    I can't image my life without you,
    But I can't image my life with you.

    I deserve more than what you give me,
    Better than what I have now.
    Growing up is something that you need to do.
    My love for you is always there....
    But my heart is moving on to better things.

  7. 27. Disappear From Relationship

    • By Anonamos
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2008

    I'm sure there are plenty of others out there who feel the same. It's time to speak up and let them know what's really going on.

    Why won't this pain disappear?
    Why won't it just end?
    I try so hard to belong, just to fit in.
    My mother and my father have no idea what's wrong.
    I'm tired of being the friend just so you don't hurt.
    You know how I feel and yet you won't respond.
    This is so unfair, when will it ever end?
    Will it just build up until the end?
    I love you so and want you to feel the same.
    I'm sorry for coming into your life.
    I think I should just disappear.
    When you wake in the morning,
    Beside your bed you will see a note
    That contains it all,
    And you know I'll always be beside you in my heart, not wanting to flee.

  8. 28. My Sorrow's Song

    • By Candace Nau

    This is poem I wrote for my friend that tried to commit suicide after her boyfriend left her for her friend.

    Broken In Pain

    So here it goes,
    My sorrow's song.
    A song that's short
    And not too long.
    A silent pain you'll never feel,
    A broken heart that'll never heal.
    How do you kill a dying love?
    One that you thought was sent from above.
    One that brought so many lies and tears.
    One that you swore would last through the years,
    But now I lie here,
    Broken in pain,
    Clinging to life,
    And whispering your name,
    Now realizing you were never the one,
    But now it's too late, 'cuz my song is done.

  9. 29. Your Path, My Heartbreak

    • By Chantal Vincent
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2011

    I was in love with someone who chose someone else over me.

    You are blinded by shame
    For all you have done
    It hurts me so bad
    That I was never number one.

    I understand your pain
    Or at least say that I do.
    But really, inside,
    I am just as lost as you.

    You understand my pain
    Or at least you claim that you do.
    But how can you understand something
    That you have never been through.

    I try to accept your reasoning
    Though my heart breaks in half
    I know who is more important
    You chose the right path

    Still I can't grasp this concept
    Of you being gone
    My feelings never die
    I know this is wrong.

    I say that I'd do anything for you
    That's a promise I can no longer make
    Loving you is inevitable
    It's something that I can't fake.

  10. 30. My Lonely Show

    • By Yvonne Houde
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2012

    I was in a very abusive marriage, lucky to have survived it. Over the span of 20 years, I had been abandoned on a mountain while pregnant, had a gun held to my head, had my nose, ribs and ankle broken and was raped. I wrote this poem after my ankle was broken. I was a well known and respected community member. I was ashamed of what I was going through and spent years trying to change myself to try to prevent the abuse. I don't resemble that broken woman anymore and I have found my voice.

    A little bit angry through the years,
    A whole lot lonely through my tears.
    A wonderful person the people said.
    While I cry alone in bed.

    Don't worry, I'll let you be,
    Your secret is safe, alone with me.
    My life is a lonely show,
    I'll never let anyone know.

    The sorrow and pain and lonely tears,
    have been safe with me all these years.
    I am the person people phone,
    when THEY feel all alone.

    Don't worry, your secret is mine,
    I'm too embarrassed all the time.
    You're angry with me again,
    I don't know why, that's insane!

    If anyone knew I would curl up and die,
    I let people think I am only shy.
    You're angry with me all the time.....
    I don't want anyone to know, so you are fine.

  11. 31. I Hoped

    Throughout life we meet many people. They are people who will become a friend, enemy, someone who will be in your life for a short while, or someone who will mean the world to you. The only problem is sometimes we put them in the wrong category. I met this girl, and it felt like she could be the one, so I put all my effort into making things work, but just like that, she slipped out of my life. I was broken down, and all I have left is hope, hope to meet the right one.

    Losing Someone Special In Your Life

    I hoped you'd be my last,
    but you changed very fast.

    I tried to be strong,
    but I don't know what went wrong.

    I tried and tried, yet I failed.
    You still left and set sail.

    All we had turned to dust
    while my heart started to rust.

  12. 32. Hurt By You

    • By Ashley Jeffery
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2008

    This is about my ex-boyfriend breaking up with me. Someone told him I was with another guy.

    Why did you have to go?
    Why did you leave me in the dark all alone?
    Why did you have to believe other people and not me?
    Why didn't we just talked about it?
    Why did you have to walk out of my life,
    Like I was nothing but another girl,
    Like your other ex?
    I was so good to you, and now you think of me like any other girl.
    Why did you do this to me?
    Why did you hurt me like you did to all your exes?
    I though I meant the world to you.
    Guess your are a liar and a jerk,
    Just like all men.
    Well, I am trying to forget you and everything we had, but it hurt like hell.

  13. 33. Never Be True

    • By Shianne
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2011

    I wrote this poem when I was really sad.

    You don't mean what you say and don't mean what you do
    You don't mean anything because it's not true
    You broke my fall and stole my heart
    And already damaged, you let it fall apart
    The tears I cry now fall with my misery
    Once covered up, now for the world to see
    Who I really am inside
    For all to see rules to which I don't abide
    The circumstances in which reality shall fade
    The unwanted feelings your lies have made
    The shame when I realized you gained my trust
    The truth fading as the dust
    Slips through my fingers grain by grain
    My heart's not only torn but slain
    As shards of glass fall from the sky
    Tears of blood fall from my eye
    Your words crawled across my skin
    And I forget what I don't believe in
    My heart pounds as I lift my head
    Dare to enter where no one has tread
    And I looked deep into your eyes
    Found the source of all your lies
    And even though I know they'll never be true
    With all my heart, I'll continue loving you

    Poem About Feeling Like You Can't Go On

    she wakes up every morning
    to screaming and crying.
    the tears are burning,
    because of all the scratching.
    she feels as if she is not needed anymore,
    and is constantly punching the door.
    her body hurts because of her broken heart,
    of falling in love and then falling apart.
    she wants him back,
    but she thinks it won't last.
    only because it seems like he doesn't want her anymore,
    and now she wants to go through the floor.
    you say you love her, but this is no way to prove it,
    now the knife and her heart have met.
    he played with her love like it was a game,
    now it'll never be the same!

  15. 35. Your Relationship Is Broken

    • By Lynn
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008

    I wrote my poem after going through a tough relationship with my daughter and her boyfriend. I found a great deal of comfort in writing my thoughts into little poems that helped us all through the tough times.

    Poem From Mother To Daughter

    In the midst of a sentence I felt it!
    It hit me, a gut feeling things weren't quite right.
    The love I had come to know had changed.
    It faded as if slowly dying.
    I ask myself what is this, why is it happening to us?
    We were perfect, compatible, uniquely in love with our life.
    Something was changing.
    It had all changed.
    Everything was different.
    I looked on the floor, and in front of me lays a million little pieces, covered in memories.
    My heart ripped from my chest.
    It lays on the ground in a million pieces.
    My life was shattered.
    What do I do with these pieces,
    How do I pick them all up?
    I dropped to my knees and picked them up, one by one, piece by piece.
    I was taking the first step in getting my life back.
    I realized the person I still loved with all my heart was symbolized in all the tiny pieces.
    I sat down and put them all back together again.
    I had the answer.

    Sadly, I've never been in a relationship, despite endlessly trying. This poem conveys how I feel after yet another rejection - it's an endless cycle.

    The Seemingly Endless Cycle Of Rejection

    There's that feeling again,
    The one I've had before.
    I picked myself up from that,
    And I'll do so once more.

    There's that feeling again,
    Of pain and sorrow.
    I'm not sure I can take it.
    Can it wait until tomorrow?

    There's that feeling again,
    Now I'm in tears.
    I thought I was strong,
    But it appears I was wrong.

    There's that feeling again,
    But a smile puts it off.
    Then it hits me,
    I've not been let off.

    There's that feeling again,
    The one I've had before.
    I picked myself up from that,

  18. 38. When You Know The End Is Near

    • By Ronnie Catron
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2011

    I wrote this when I thought my marriage was over. I hope I am wrong and that it will endure 'til the end of time.

    It is hard to imagine life without you in it.
    The dreams that we shared are now just painful things.
    When you realize that no matter what you do,
    No matter what you try,
    The end is here.

    The nights are not the same,
    And the days are long.
    When I think about all the good times we shared,
    It is hard to imagine not being there with you in the end.

    Maybe someday I will let go of it all,
    Think about something else for a change.
    Right now all I think about is you.

    I have lost my best friend,
    The person I want to share everything with.
    You have been the person I turn to in a time of need.
    Now I must do it on my own.

    The love I have for you is one that will never end.
    It is something I believed and trusted in.
    No matter what happens between us,
    No matter how much time passes between us,
    Please remember that I will love you 'til the end.

    Poem About Feeling Like Nothing

    I wish you had never said those hurtful things.
    You made me love and trust you.
    I'm in such a dark place these days
    Because of you.
    You gave me heaven, then took it away.
    I'm so sick I don't eat anymore
    Because of what you said.
    Every time I look in the mirror now
    All I see is a fat, ugly, unhappy girl.
    I keep trying to end it.
    I don't wanna live anymore.
    You have made me feel dead,
    Like I'm nothing.
    How could you do this?
    You promised you would never hurt me,
    But out of everyone, you have hurt me the most.
    I hope one day someone makes you feel like you have made me feel.
    I wanna forget the way you used to look deep in my eyes when you told me you loved me,
    Because now I know it was all a game to you.
    Everything you ever said was a lie.
    I would have done anything for you,
    And you did nothing for me.

    Why won't you at least try to believe what I say,
    instead of just pushing me away?
    Why do I keep putting myself out there,
    and you don't even seem to care?
    I have these emotions I wish you would see,
    so I wouldn't be left with the questions of,
    "Will he or won't he?"
    Will he ever love me like he used to,
    and give me the things I once knew?
    Won't he see,
    I feel I don't know him anymore,
    and let himself go back to how he was before?
    Will I still hurt when I heal,
    or will he finally let me feel?
