  1. 21. You Will Regret

    My best friend fell in love for the first time in her life with a person she thought was her soul mate. He kept playing games and wasn't honest with her about how he felt. It broke her heart, and I wrote this poem to represent how she felt.

    You will regret
    That you made me cry,
    That you didn't see your love in my eye,
    That you failed my heart and didn't even try.
    You will regret, and soon you will know why...

    You will regret and miss my smile
    When I will be away from you a hundred or a thousand miles.
    You think I am not your candidate now and not your style
    You will miss my soul, my laughter; it won't take you a while...

    You will regret...believe me...I don't want you to.
    I love you, and regrets are something that I don't wish for you
    You said that I was your soul mate,
    Explained our love was our great fate.
    A day later I was left on the side.
    All your love and care did subside.
    Sorry, I didn't know how to play your game.
    To my innocence and good heart you can only blame...

    You will regret that you had me one day.
    You will see my picture and wonder how you didn't stay.
    You will regret that you can't touch me anymore.
    You will regret that you never truly opened your heart's door.
    You will regret me forever.
    You will never see me again, never.
    You will regret me today and tomorrow...
    Hope you can live well with your sorrow.
    Goodbye now, I have to go my way,
    Goodbye now is all I have to say...

  2. 22. Hurting

    • By Kayla Marie
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2016

    Unable to sleep from the pain caused by a broken heart.

    My Heart Is Empty

    Lying in bed, my eyes resisting to close.
    Thoughts and anger I try to dispose.
    Thoughts of you stain my mind.
    So many questions with answers I cannot find.

    Hurt and confused as to why.
    You'd always say you love me, but that was a repetitive lie.
    I gave you all my love, but it wasn't enough.
    Breaking my heart, you thought it made you tough.

    I don't know what it is that you gain
    When you push me around and see me in pain.
    Do you feel empowered? Do you feel strong?
    What did I do to you that was so wrong?

    You ripped and shattered my soul.
    Now all that's left of my heart is one giant hole.
    Nothing but emptiness and darkness take its place.
    My heart vanished without a trace.

  3. 23. Love Hurts

    • By Unknown
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2010

    He was the love of my life. I felt like I was going to die. I told my friends about the break up, and the only thing they could say was, "Love hurts," but it's way deeper than that...

    Everyone says that love hurts,
    But that's not true.
    Loneliness hurts.
    Rejection hurts.
    Everyone confuses these things with love.
    But in reality love is the only thing in the world
    That covers up all the pain and makes us feel wonderful again.

  4. 24. 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.
    I admit I've made mistakes, overstepping the boundaries,
    Which made me look fake.
    I always said I would never do the things I did,
    And I know that's why it's so hard for you to forgive.
    So many times we've said that we'd try,
    Just to turn around and make each other cry.
    Remember how it was when we first started out?
    We fell so hard, maybe fell in love too soon.
    At one point you'd notice ONLY me in the room.
    We both did things we can't undo;
    Now it seems our relationship is headed for doom,
    And not that long ago, I was EVERYTHING to you.
    Now you're looking for other things to "do."
    I admit my mistakes, but can you admit yours?
    I have paid for what I have done, as you've paid for yours.
    So why is it like this? Why can't we even talk?
    You call me names and act like you don't care,
    All a while, our love for each other is still there.
    I never meant to hurt you or cause you any pain,
    I know neither of us want to go through this same old stuff again.
    I owe you so much, and I have so much to prove to you,
    But you continue to do things you wouldn't want me to do.
    We always have these tears to cry,
    And are left with all these wondering questions of why?
    Why can't we get past the past? You think I expect too much too fast,
    But don't you want to become whole at last?
    Why won't you at least try to believe me, instead of pushing me further away?
    I have these emotions, I wish you could see,
    Sometimes I get really upset, 'cause I feel you don't understand me
    Will you ever love me like you USED to? Show me the love that I ONCE knew?
    The love that we both grew,
    When will you see? I'm starting to feel like I hardly know you anymore?
    When can we go back to how it was before?
    Will we still hurt if we heal? Or by that time, will we still feel?
    My dream of US does not look like it's coming true.
    All I feel is sad and blue,
    And I know you're looking for other things to "do."
    You're sick of me and want something new.

  5. 25. 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.

  6. 26. 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.

  7. 27. 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.

  8. 28. 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.

  10. 30. Wishes Don't Come True

    • By Kathleen G. Mcneeley
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2017

    My marriage has been falling apart for the last few years, no matter what I do. It's hard to talk about, but I have to get it out before it eats me whole.

    Failing Marriage

    I wish there were words to express how I feel,
    But no words I see will do.
    No words exist to convey my pain
    Or the love I feel for you.

    The love that stings like a bee
    And makes me swell with pain.
    I wish you loved me like honey,
    Sweet and thick and sticky,
    But that love for me no longer exists,
    So I must care for the wound it left.

    I wish you cared about me
    The way you do our kids,
    Loving them for who they are,
    Not scowling at them from afar.

    I wish you loved me like I love you,
    With every inch and mile.
    I fall apart every day.
    Never at me do you smile.

    I wish I made you happy.
    I try to every day,
    But I can't seem to make you love me anymore.
    I cry myself to sleep.
    Every day I fail.
    Every day I weep.

    I wish a lot of thing these days,
    But what is there to do?
    Life isn't a dream or fairytale.
    Wishes don't come true.

  11. 31. Loneliness Over

    • By Paul Fisher
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2017

    My wife had left me and my two children, and sleep was rare for many weeks. As I'd lie thinking in the small hours of the mornings, the bird song at the break of dawn was a reminder of new beginning and hope. I would lay in the half dark waiting for the first bird to dare and break the silence.

    Waiting For A New Beginning

    Daytime comes so slowly,
    Slouching through the night.
    My mind is torn and twisted,
    Screaming for the light...
    Of dawn in all its glory,
    Its splendor and its song.
    Why, even humble sparrows think
    The night was far too long.

  12. 32. As If We Never Were

    • By Cassandra Cordova
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2017

    I'm confident and strong, but insecurities and doubt fill my mind. The one person who I thought wouldn't ever notice me did. In my eyes he was perfect. We became a side thing, but my heart wanted more. I let my guard down too quickly. I was willing to commit, but he wasn't. I decided to let go before he would break me even more. It was painful and sad, but I had to remind myself that I deserve better than just a side thing.

    Letting Go Of A Love That Was Never Real

    Sadness reaps in my shadows.
    Its presence is in every corner.
    I close my eyes to try to escape,
    But all I see is you.
    It hurts.
    I hurt.
    When I hold you, my heart is full.
    Your lips against mine is a fairy tale.
    Looking into your eyes loses me every time.
    Those are the moments I wish could last forever.
    Is there such a thing?
    When we let go, I remain empty.
    A kiss goodbye is me searching for hope.
    After you I'm still alone.
    Our only connection is what I hold on too.
    I fall asleep waiting, and I wake up heartbroken.
    I break a little more every time.
    I've become blind to what is around me.
    My doors have closed to those that matter.
    I'm standing in the palm of your hand.
    I need to let go.
    I can't.
    I don't want to.

  13. 33. Morning Moon Over The Ocean

    • By Joseph A. Lamberger
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2018

    When you wake up in the early morning hours and walk to the beach, when the full moon is high in the sky, the view of the morning moon sitting over the ocean waves creates a peace and a feeling of renewal.

    Recovering From The Hurt Of A Failed Love

    Morning moon over the ocean,
    Faithful light on the sea,
    You help me realize
    The man I was meant to be.

    There are times in one’s life
    When you walk into the wind,
    But if the ocean moon should show,
    It will help you see within.

    Some of it is pretty,
    Most of it is bad.
    It is only then you realize
    Exactly what you had.

    Morning moon over the ocean,
    Precious light on the sea,
    An end to my darkness.
    A new day dawns for me.

    I’ve failed so many times
    To open my eyes to see.
    So many were the signs
    And hints you gave to me.

    I grew into a man
    With a heart made out of steel.
    Over the years I never saw
    The hurt that would never heal.

    Morning moon over the ocean
    A sure sign from above
    That my lonely nights may be ending
    With the hope of your great love.

    I wish that I could travel
    In a ship just for a time
    And make a long, long journey
    To the day when you were mine.

    A bribe for the ferryman
    To transport across the sea,
    To arrive on the shore
    Where you again wait for me.

    Morning moon over the ocean,
    Faithful light on the sea,
    You help me realize
    The man I was meant to be.

  14. 34. 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.

    Poem About Feeling Used By Someone You Love

    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,
    And the knots have vanished.
    Broken pieces echo off my rib cage.
    It will take more than I'm sorry this time.

    Silly me for believing I was the only one,
    A lone daisy in your vast garden of roses.
    I only wanted you to help me grow.
    Instead you ripped my roots from the earth,
    Pulling my petals, indecisive about love.
    While ignoring my cries of agony and admiration,
    You disemboweled me and I'm left bare.

    I crave you in the worst ways.
    I want to have you and feel your hands again,
    To be touched deeper than the skin.
    Feel my battered insides and remember who loved you.
    Trace where the heart you stole once played a cadence
    Every time you were near.
    This godforsaken skeleton shivers under your caress.

    The only thing I ever wanted was to be loved.
    Now I'm alone without sensation.
    Incapable of thoughts,
    My mind is gone and I'm spinning.
    I've become a robot with a plastic exterior,
    A decoy of what used to be, before you shattered my heart,
    A counterfeit smile plastered on my pale lips as I feel nothing.

    Hey, everyone. This is just a little something that might happen to one of y'all. I just want y'all to be careful and watch out for yourself. Guys can be...well...you know. (: This is what happened to me, so I don't want it happening to you...

    Lying, Cheating Thief

    You said you loved me,
    You said you cared,
    But you cannot see
    All this pain that I have endured.

    I feel as if you're lying
    And cannot stop my crying.
    What did I do to deserve all this pain,
    all this pain that I cannot sustain...

    You say you've change,
    But all you're referring to
    Is that thing in your pants
    That you cannot contain.

    You call yourself a "player,"
    You call yourself a "beast,"
    But all I see standing in front of me
    Is a lying, cheating thief.

    You stole my heart,
    You took my pride
    And threw it all back in my face
    With no surprise.

    Now I see that you never loved me...
    And that you've always loved her..
    Now I see..
    As these painful tears stream down my face,
    That I was never in your heart...
    You never loved me...

    Poem Sharing Difficulties Faced By Military Families

    I had a man long before the war,
    Now I sit crying on the floor.

    And yes, we still talk every day,
    But the internet is not the best way.

    The worst part about him being gone,
    Is when I need to talk he isn't on.

    See, at night you hug and kiss your man,
    I can only say goodnight through a webcam.

    You complain you're with your kids every day and that's not fair,
    My man can only see his kids grow through photo share.

    While most of you count down 'til deer season,
    I'm counting down 'til Iraqi freedom.

    You hate when your man wakes you up,
    My alarm goes off at 3 AM 'cause that's when mine gets his lunch.

    You say your man is always in your face,
    Oh, how I long for that warm embrace.

    When I go out I'm always alone,
    God, I can't wait for him to come home.

    When he does come home it's never for too long,
    But that's the price you pay when you're army strong.

    You say it can't be that hard, you could do it with ease,
    Go ahead and try, try to love an M.P.

    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
    Comfortable
    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
    Fine...
    There's nothing more
    I can do
    Or say

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2013

    I love this boy who I have been in love with since I laid eyes on him, but he's too scared to love me back. I wrote this poem about him and how he makes me feel.

    Heart pounding
    To those light brown eyes,

    Racing to the beat of the drums,
    In my imagination.

    Warm feelings rising for him,
    Butterflies and knots in my stomach.

    My eyes meet his,
    Our hands touch,
    Then our lips,
    We are no longer on earth.

    Two hearts, one love,
    I put my heart all out.
    Only he knows what to do with it,
    Take it and love it,

    Lovebirds we'll become,
    Love has to come first,
    Dreaming that soon lovers we'll be,

    I'm awake now,
    It was just a dream,
    Dreaming about the love I have for him,
    The love he doesn't have for me,

    I've always been shy. I have trouble talking to people, and I'm not really super close or comfortable with any guys, so I'm extra awkward around them. I have a lot of anxiety and depression,...

  19. 39. 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.

  20. 40. 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.
