  1. 21. 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.

  2. 22. My Sorrow's Song

    • By Candace Nau
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2008

    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.

  3. 23. 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.

  4. 24. Warm Embrace

    I am a single mother to two wonderful boys. I have been divorced for over a year. I want to feel loved again and feel like I'm somebody again. I'm missing that special someone.

    How I yearn for his warm embrace
    Tears fall down my face
    Can you see in my eyes
    How much I hate our goodbyes
    I think about you all the time
    I know in the end we will be just fine.
    Touch me..Love with me
    the way we are supposed to be
    I've always wanted to be with you
    and do the things that lovers do
    Tell me you want to be with me
    and that we were meant to be
    Precious pain go away
    Please don't come back another day
    Dreaming of you
    is all I do
    This fire I feel...sparks...heat ...exotic...burning inside
    My feelings for you I cannot hide
    wishing..hoping....yearning..wanting..needing you near
    Oh God, can you tell how much I want you, dear
    I can't pretend anymore
    It's you...whom I adore
    It's you whom I've been longing for
    I just want to give you my heart
    and I never want us to be apart
    In the moonlight I wish on the stars that you were here
    instead of being there.
    One day I will feel your warm embrace
    and no more tears will fall down from my face.

    Warm Embrace

  5. 25. 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

  6. 26. 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.

  7. 27. 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.

  8. 28. Why Doesn't He Love Me Back

    • By Jaleesah
    •  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,

  9. 29. Darkness

    • By Brendan Michael Pagano-Staffaroni
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2015

    This poem comes from the pain of losing a girlfriend. When the person you love leaves, your whole world turns upside down, making it feel like you will constantly live in darkness.

    Poem About Loss Of Girlfriend

    I wish this world of darkness would come to an end.
    I lost a girl, I lost a friend.
    I'd give it all back if only I could.
    I've said it a million times, I know I would.
    I miss her more and more every day.
    She's gone, and my world is dark and grey.
    My life is a cloud of endless rain.
    I wish I could escape the endless pain.
    What's the point of living if she's gone?
    There is no sun, there is no dawn
    In my endless world of darkness...

    Who are you?
    Where is the guy that I once knew?
    Where did my friend go
    and when is he coming back?

    I miss him like a drought
    misses the rain
    I need him as the lighting is running
    through my brain
    I want him to know I love him
    with every beat of my heart

    I need him here when I'm alone
    in the dark
    I need his hand to help me up
    when I fall

    I want him to touch me once again
    and look within my eyes,
    So I know he cares

    I need his gentle and tender touch back
    I need it to fulfill my day
    But most of all I need my friend back
    A friend who managed to make me smile
    A friend that went away

    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.

  12. 32. 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.

  13. 33. 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
    phone calls
    and played out
    chance meetings
    in my head.
    And yet, I’ll never
    tell you any of it.
    Because I know
    (deep down)
    you’re better off
    without me,
    and I want you
    to be happy,
    whatever that means.

    Poem About Feeling Like You Can't Go On

    she wakes up every morning
    to screaming and crying.

    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,

    I wrote this for my friend who was having a bad time. It's quite a few years old and I am happy to say that they got it sorted!!!

    Playing Games With A Girl Who Can't Say No

    She's a girl and he's a guy
    why they're together, I don't know why
    she is caring, loving, honest and true
    he is mean, nasty, selfish and cruel

    she takes the bulk of all the crap
    wanting what they had
    keeping on taking him back

    he likes to keep her way down there
    to build him up, he doesn't care
    she wonders how he can be so mean
    she sees the side no one else has seen

    he plays games with her state of mind
    asks questions-answers
    she finds so hard to find

    makes her feel worthless and alone
    lots of bad habits she thought he'd outgrown

    nothing will change till she finally lets go
    hard for a girl who can't say no
    to this guy who makes her feel so low

    she's got spirit, guts and life
    why does she go through all of this strife?

    she is a beautiful girl and he's just a guy
    everyday she wonders why...
    she can't let go-only she knows.

  16. 36. 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.

  17. 37. What's Known Today, Yet Lost Yesterday

    • By Hannah Smith
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2015

    There are a lot of my feelings in this poem. It's about heartbreak and sadness. I was hurt badly by my last boyfriend, and this is meant for him to know how much he hurt me, but it's also a way of expressing my feelings without having to explain them.

    Poem About Hurt, Lies, And Darkness

    Hurt, lies, darkness
    Truth becomes nothing
    Lies become everything
    Hurt is the only feeling you know
    Darkness becomes your new best friend
    Smiles fade
    Tears remain
    No happiness left
    Sorrow and hatred swarming all around
    Hearts once whole
    Become a million sharp pieces scattered about
    What to do
    What to say
    Words can't make sounds
    Silence throughout the day
    Silence throughout the night
    What used to be
    Is now nothing but a vivid memory of days passed
    Trying to remember is a waste
    But so is moving from your place
    Paralyzed yet so much feeling
    Hard to continue walking but it must be done
    Black and white, no color
    Life has become a nightmare
    Hard to escape
    Hurt, lies, darkness
    Is the life you know today

  18. 38. 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.

  19. 39. 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.

  20. 40. Love Vs. Heartbreak

    • By Kaylee
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011

    I tried to end my life but survived to tell my story. I fell in love when I was 18 with my first everything. I was there for him through his drug problem. We got engaged after three years, only for him to abuse me sexually, mentally and physically. I was tortured, beaten with chains. I was taken by force while he licked my tears. I was cheated on; he let the girl he slept with wear my ring before I got to see it. I now have a better man.

    Those moments when you unknowingly give your heart to the one you love.
    The feeling of butterflies in the very pit of your stomach when they ease into your mind.
    The smile which graces upon the world, reaching your eyes when they are near.
    The special glow you cast for all to see, which brightens with their gentle touch.
    The warmth and protection you snuggle closer to in their arms.
    The places you lay memories; as you share every moment together.
    The all out joy you give one another to make sure you are pleased evenly.
    The nights you laugh as random things, just to see a smile.
    The days you could watch TV, not speaking a word; yet the comfort of the other is near.
    The holidays you brand with a toast of wine, over candle light.
    The three words you utter occasionally, making time stand still.
    To never feeling alone because one heart beats for the other.
    The time when tears only fall when forever is placed on a finger.
    The dreams you share; to bid a future that harness true love.

    That is Love.


    The anxiety that something is wrong, when words are no longer enough.
    The harsh words that leave the mouth, scarring the butterflies away.
    The end of smiles as frowns and lines of worry are born.
    The glow that dies into depression as skin turns pale; eyes lose their shine.
    The cold of their back as they sleep facing away and far from you.
    The separation they want, time alone to search new memories.
    The gifts which ends, because the care is no longer there.
    The nights you spend in completely different rooms contemplating reasons.
    The days watching TV on the floor as the other is on the bed browsing the computer.
    The holidays spent away, at families; wondering what the other is doing.
    Those lovely three words die; reborn into three different words.
    The heartbeat which once was strong, beating painfully slow each night.
    The time tears fall for no reason through the days unknowingly.
    The nightmares that plague you, until you become ill.

    That is Heartbreak
