  1. 21. 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.

  2. 22. She

    • By Kirstie Dorgan

    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.

  3. 23. 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,

    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. 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.

  6. 26. 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.

  7. 27. 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

  8. 28. Questions

    • By Raychel
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2008

    I've always loved to write poems but never had the courage to actually let people read them. This poem expresses the hurt I have. I hope you enjoy it!

    Questioning Our Love

    I always have these tears to cry,
    and I'm left with all these wondering questions of why?
    Why can't we seem to get over the past,
    and come together and be a whole at last?
    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?

  9. 29. 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.

    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

  11. 31. 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.

  12. 32. 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.

  13. 33. 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.

    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

  15. 35. 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!

  16. 36. 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.

    Love-Heartbreak
    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

  17. 37. 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

  18. 38. Sitting

    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

  19. 39. Hollow

    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.

  20. 40. Forever

    • By Wesley

    This poem is about promises that someone you truly love made to you, and within a second, they had thrown it all away, including you. You feel hurt, as though no one had really cared, and slowly you lose hope in the meaning of the words "I love you" and "forever." It's about heartbreak and knowing that it will never be true.

    Lies And Broken Promises

    Forever means nothing in my eyes.
    It's just a word you use to cover up lies,
    To hide your tracks each night you leave
    So I don't worry and start to believe.
    The words I love you are just a joke.
    Each time you say them I try not to choke
    On the tears that threaten to stain the ground,
    And I just nod, don't make a sound.
    Each night you tell me you truly care,
    But when I need you, you're never there.
    You think what you want about how I feel
    And claim these tears are never real.
    You say you know everything about me,
    But you only know what I let you see.
    You bring me down when you think I can't hear,
    Just anything I put up with every year.
    You make me feel worthless in front of you,
    Like you hate me and everything I do.
    You never notice the tears that spill down
    Or the fake smile and permanent frown.
    You're too caught up in believing a lie
    That you never see how hard I try.
    I wanted perfection and failed you all.
    I let myself down and started to fall.
    Forever, to me, is an empty promise you made,
    And still I wait as the memories fade.
    To me, forever is a waste of time
    That makes you feel lucky as you climb
    To the extent of your happiness, but it won't be true,
    Because to me, forever is something you can't do.
