The pain that remains from that one special person's parting, leaves you forever changed - And always wishing for that innocence to be restored.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems

Painful Love
Watching you from across the room
sends searing pain through my heart.
I think back to a year ago,
when I thought we'd never part.
My love for you just won't die down -
it just grows with each new day.
I wish you'd dare to look at me
and hear what I have to say;
"I love you and I want you back - "
but these words you just won't hear.
You don't seem to remember them -
all the memories I hold dear.
You were my first kiss, my first love
and now you don't even care.
How could you just blow it away?
We were the perfect pair.
you seem content to let me go -
You're doing fine as you are,
while I'm still missing how we were.
We had the best love by far.

    This poem really touched me it seems as if u know exactly how i am feeling. I still feel this way and it was exactly a year ago that i lost my first true love and i wish the same. I wish he would just let me say those words again and relize that i really mean them. But i just wanted to let u know why this poem touched me and wanted to say that u are write very good poems.

    I felt sad reading the poem coz' i can exactly relate with the emotions behind the poem. It's true that sometimes we can't just let go especially if we love someone sooo much. but we just need to let go for us to recover soon.
