My poem is about holding people back. I held back a past love, and therefore, I lost him.

But even though we lose someone, it doesn't mean they can't be in our thoughts.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Sad Love Poems

Thinking
Thinking. Can't stop thinking.
Think of you. This. That. That Life. That day.
That dream was mine.
A utopian dream.

Your aura; struck me like lightning to a tree.
Pointy, like a star, you shone.
So bright, yet not shining as a star would,
But as apparent as white chalk on a blackboard.
You would not show off like a star.
Yet you did burn so hot, so fiercely, so explosively -
you were a star in my eyes.

But like all stars, you died.
That gas was gone.
No pull between us.
The atmosphere was dry
and I began to choke.
I was taken from my star - like a child being taken from its poor,
drunken mother - I did not know what was happening.
Dazed. Confused. Without true reality, I there sat.
Wondering.

The end of my world had only just begun, with yours beginning.

    This poem reflects exactly how i am feeling right now. I am 17 and in a 2year relationship. I just feel like our relationship has lost it's pull. Her and her family are moving to austrailia sometime soon and I just feel like my star is fading away. Thankz 4 your poem, it's really moving im just glad that somepeople have the gift to use words to such an affect whereas i cannot :)

    This is a fantastic poem. It's exactly how I feel. My life ended when my former loves began. I miss her So much even though it's been so long since I've seen or talked to her. Anyway Great poem 10 out of 10. It's So sad how two people can be in love, and then once it ends one person acts like they weren't in love at all. Absolutely crushing to a persons' soul. Sorry for the babaling.
