  1. 41. 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.

  2. 42. You "Said"

    • By Kaitlin Camp
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2011

    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. Drowning

    This poem comes from Amy O Connor's poetry book, A Beautiful Complexity.

    They come in waves,
    my feelings for you.
    And not pretty whitecaps
    dancing at my feet.
    But when I least expect it.
    When life seems to be
    a quiet stream of continuity.
    They come to disrupt.
    So forceful they pull me under,
    so that I am drowning and once again,
    can’t catch my breath.

  4. 44. 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.

  5. 45. Or Is It Just Me?

    • By Sarah
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2009

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

    He's Never Met His Son

    We met at Wal-Mart
    I needed formula
    I had to ask him
    I had no money
    You should have seen it
    The way he looked at me
    Those eyes
    Piercing me
    My heart
    It made me think about what was
    What could have been
    He can see through my front
    He knows I still care
    I still have love
    In his eyes I could see
    Somewhere behind that
    Thug want to-be
    He still cares
    It hurt
    It was the first time
    The way he held him
    Looked so right
    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

  6. 46. 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.

  7. 47. 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. 48. 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.

  9. 49. There's That Feeling Again

    • By Charles Cushway
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 13, 2022

    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...

  10. 50. 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.

  11. 51. How Could You?

    • By Rebekah
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2007
    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. 52. 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

  13. 53. 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...

  14. 54. Reality Check

    Poem About A Relationship Falling Apart

    Married, we were
    As young as 17
    Lovers, we were
    At least at heart

    Home, we built
    Of wood and concrete
    Walls, we built
    Of hatred and lust

    Family, we became
    With child after child
    Strangers, we became
    With lie after lie

    Fighting, it began
    For days on end
    Hurting, it began
    For love to end

    Divorce, it is
    God's marriage had ceased
    Reality, it is
    God save us please

  15. 55. 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.

  17. 57. 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.

  18. 58. 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.

  19. 59. 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.

  20. 60. 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.
