This Poem

i write this poem to pass away the time
to make me forget that loving her was a crime
i sit here and type these endless awkward rhymes
to help me cope during the darkest of times
i write this poem to help my mind forget
to stop my eyes from crying, from getting wet
stop tears that flows when i am upset
i wish that she and i had never met
i write this poem because its all i can do
with a heart so sad, a life that's so blue
i wish that my love for her wasn't true
i wish i could live a life that is different and new
i write this poem that does not make any sense
about a feeling that is so hopelessly intense
i write it without even a trace of pretense
this is my last stand, my last line of defense
i write this poem to bid her goodbye
to my existence she will always be the reason why
though to my messages she won't reply
i will always love her until the day i die

    It is easy for us to see the shinning dawn just beyond your horizon because we've been there and because we aren't as emotionally invested. Both charmaine's and Heidie's camments are spot-on. The only thing I can add is that we all need to experience what you have shared in your heart-wrenching poem to understand the incredible value of intimate relationships and the lengths to which we need to undertake in protecting them - even from ourselves... Thanks for this... ~<><

    A poignant poem containing a lot of wisdom. It's not easy to let go, but it is the only way to start the healing process. Well written and great introspection. Well done. Regards Heidie

    i admire your guts for saying that guys cry in the poem,that they are human and not standing stones--heartfelt and sad,but remember after each darkness there shines new dawn-so cheer up my friend--wonderful love poem--charma
