  1. 41. 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.

  2. 42. You "Said"

    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...

  3. 43. Not Worth The Pain

    • By Ashley Brewer
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2009

    I'm Ashley, and I am 15. This poem is to my ex-boyfriend. He was my very first true love, and I miss him terribly. I am still trying to get over him, but I know that it is going to take a very long time.. :/

    If I could have stayed just a little longer, where would we be?
    Every night I dream, and you're part of my little scheme.
    I miss you oh, so badly, and you don't even care.
    I am trying to move on, but my heart is still all torn apart.
    How could you just leave me all alone in the dark?
    Now it feels like my whole world is falling apart.
    My friends says that you're not worth the pain,
    But my heart is still in vain.
    I think about you 24/7, and I wonder if you are thinking of me too.
    I doubt it, though.
    You have no idea what you are putting me through.
    I love you, and I know the love we once shared was true.
    Every night you would call and you would make me laugh.
    I miss holding hands and all the kisses we had,
    And still you beg me for a hug every time it's time to say goodbye.
    You're not worth the pain.
    But yet I still love you.
    Why can't I get over you?
    The sky was once blue; now you're falling through.
    You don't call anymore, and I am only good to you when I'm around.
    You were my first for a lot of things, and I want you to be my last.
    I love you.
    I'm sorry, but my heart is all in vain.
    But you're still not worth the pain.

  4. 44. You Have Shattered Every Memory Of Us

    You have drowned every emotion of us,
    Held it under water until it could no longer breathe.
    You have shattered every memory of us,
    Like glass, touching it I risk hurting every time.
    You have burned any future of us,
    Only left ashes of what could have been.
    We could have been great together.
    We could have made it.

  5. 45. 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.

  6. 46. Let's Go Back To The Beginning

    • By Alhely J. Liceaga
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    Sometimes the tension in a marriage gets intense and the couple starts to worry, is this the end?

    Marriage Is Falling Apart

    It was never like this...
    In the beginning all we did was laugh
    Now that we are married it's like we have to argue and that has to be part of our lives.
    We have a son now, and look at us... I feel like we're falling apart
    Every day I hope it changes and we go back to how it was
    But I guess those days are over and all we have left is the beautiful memories of the past.
    Why do people go through this?
    Is it just a test, or is it how it ends it all
    How come we were not able to see this from the beginning?
    That way we wouldn't of broken our first son's heart.

  7. 47. Sitting

    • By Dana
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2009

    When me and my boyfriend broke up

    Poem About A Breakup

    Sitting in silence is the greatest virtue
    Sitting in the dark is like no one cares enough to turn the light back on in your life
    Sitting with the music blasting is like trying to drown out every problem you have
    Sitting in the bathtub crying is like a suicide not yet planned
    Sitting with all the lights on is like trying to forget the dark times
    Sitting with the blade to your wrist seems like you were a failure
    Sitting with the gun put to your head is like saying he broke my heart one too many times
    But sitting next to you
    Is like a hundred pieces of broken glass stabbing you in the heart
    It's hard not to forget how I loved you and how you hurt me
    It's hard to say you're not mine anymore
    But the hardest is getting through the day knowing I won't get a call from you
    But for some reason I still wait for your call
    Sitting in silence is the greatest virtue
    But sitting next to you is like glass

    This is based on a true story of mine...
    I'm so hurt. "Waiting for his call" that never comes.

    Hurt In Love

    As I watched the raindrops fall,
    I waited for his call
    It was dark that night
    that it was all darkness at my sight

    Every time the night would come,
    I always feel the same
    the pain I kept inside
    the tears I cried

    the way I pretend
    that I just care with my trends
    the feelings that I can't say
    the problems on my way

    because you hurt me so,
    I will say goodbye
    it's for our sake
    and for me not to be fake

  9. 49. Two Countries

    • By Efi
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2007

    There is always a negative aspect of love: fighting and hurt

    Fighting In Relationship

    Two countries like shadows
    fight every day
    without end
    cold and cruel
    one the other.
    They are linked with a chain
    but the rings are rusty.
    They burden and crawl the souls,
    bleeding the once common dreams.
    Some thoughts, similar actions and reactions
    permanent battles without winner
    because the opponents have the same character.
    And where this battle will lead,
    No one knows.
    Truth and lie become one
    swearing enemies till the end.
    Endless games of pain and revenge
    but without reason.
    Egoisms and reactions
    dumb reminders of a forgotten vow.
    But look, they are fighting again
    silently, with piercing looks
    that hide words sharp as knives,
    and bleed their hearts.
    Two countries like shadows
    fight every day.

  10. 50. 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.

  11. 51. 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.

  12. 52. 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. 53. Hang Up

    A dedication for a longing heart... who simply cannot just speak it out...wherein a better word to tell a person on this situation is ENOUGH!

    Hello. Hello? Hello...
    How are you?
    I missed your voice so much.
    It's been a long time
    I miss our talk
    Yeah... right, all the nonsense
    Almost always, no meaning but wonderful
    And I can't help it

    I tried several times to reach you
    Longing to hear your voice once again
    Wanting to hear promises.
    Reminiscing the past
    Plans for the future?
    Often times, I was unsuccessful
    It's either you didn't pick the call
    Or someone else did
    Quite frustrating, but I have no plans of giving up
    I will still try... and will never stop.

    And today, choking with loneliness
    I dialed your number.
    It rang... once... twice
    Then I put it off.
    The rats are racing in my chest
    I told myself, I can't
    I paused, I can't help it
    I'm wondering once again
    Who's with you.
    The answer, I don't want to know.

    I held the phone once more
    Thinking... to dial or not to dial
    My fingers decided quicker than my brain
    It rang...You picked the call and answered.
    Same soft, husky voice.
    Soft hello
    I'm so happy to hear you again.
    Yes... I can hear you now
    And I'm happy.
    But then again,
    I have to Hang up

  14. 54. Because Of The War

    • By Nikki
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2015

    I wrote this in a restaurant while listening to a girl complain that she didn't have a sitter to go out.

    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.

    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,
    And I'll do so once more...

    • 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.

    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

  20. 60. I'm Sorry Son

    • By Randall Pela
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2008

    I was diagnosed with Kleinfelters Syndrome in October of 2006, which is a disease which doesn't allow me the chance to conceive my own child. Poetry - Song writing has always given me the chance to express my feelings on paper. This is the hardest thing ever for me personally to experience because I want to be father of my own child so much and I know that there are others like me, and I just wanted to share with the readers my thoughts and feelings on the topic as well. Thank You.

    Unable To Conceive

    I'm sorry, Son, that I'll never get the chance to see you.
    I'm sorry, Son, I'll never get the chance to be you.
    I hold you close to my heart; I can't stand that we are apart.
    I always wanted you from the very start.
    It seems the man I once believed in turned his back on me,
    he took away my right to be happy and stole my dignity.
    I'm sorry, Son, I'll never get the chance to hold you.
    I'm sorry, Son, I'll never get the chance to scold you.
    I'm sorry, Son, that I will never get the chance to be a good Dad,
    a higher power has punished me and left me so sad.
    The problems God has caused me makes me want to leave my wife
    because I can't provide her with a junior of me.
    This pains me so much.
    Sometimes I think a shotgun is the only way to end my misery!
    I've been cursed by a higher power,
    my life can never be complete,
    my heart will always be missing every other beat.
    I'm sorry, Son, I'll never get the chance to hold you!
    I'm sorry, Son, I'll never get the chance to scold you.
    I'm sorry, Son, I can't be your Dad
    I always wanted to be a good Dad,
    and provide with the life that I couldn't have.
    I'm sorry, Son.
    Please realize that if I could have you that I would.
    I'll always love you and you are always in my heart and with this we shall never be apart!
