This poem describes the terrible sense of loss I felt when the man I loved walked out of my life. It takes you through a journey which describes how joy turned to pain and loss. This was the last time I wrote to him, before I finally had to accept that I should let go, it was a farewell.

This poem is dedicated to the memory of my sister, who never grew old enough to experience this kind of pain.

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

Crazy Holding On
Once there was a man who had an orange shirt.
Once there was a girl who went out dancing in a skirt.
Once there was a park they found they fed the frantic ducks.
Once there was a couple, happy, who couldn't believe their luck.

Once they went out dancing, and a candled dinner date.
Once early in the morning she surrendered to her fate.
Once he said "I love you" and she had to love him too.
Once they had a future, happy when one and one made two.

Now they are both lonely, now they live alone.
Now he has a cold and empty (tidy) hollow home.
Now she has a fountain, tears where once there was a heart.
Now he has decided that they really have to part.

Now that he has nothing, he feels he is complete.
Now that she can't dance again, her heart weighs down her feet.
Now he thinks about her, all the memories locked away.
Now he tries so hard to forget the happy laughing days.

Is she thinking of him still? Does she cry still, now and then?
Is she ever going to win back the man she loves again?
Is he glad it's over? Can he get on with his life?
Is he really so very certain she would have made a useless wife?

Given all the laughter, fun and sunny times they had.
Given all the heartache, lies and times he made her mad.
Given all the tears now, the loneliness and pain.
Given all the risks, would she do it all again?

Can he really say that he won't want her back one day?
Can he really like his life now better in this way?
Can he forget her face, the mess, the giggles and the love?
Can he find someone else to love him more than she could love?

If she really loved him, he said she'd let him go.
If he understood her feelings then he would know that it's not so.
If he were less stubborn, if she could care much less.
If they had never spoken there wouldn't be this sorry mess.

But time has taken prisoners, their lives are now entwined.
But even if they never meet again, the past is not left behind.
But can she start all over? Just forget him and move on?
But even if she can, will he be glad with what he's won?

Is that really what he wants, to never see her smiling face again?
Will it make him happy, will he live on without pain?
Will he be thinking of her, is he too proud to cry?
Will it wrench his heart in two if he sees her kiss another guy?

And can she forgive his faults, and accept him as he is.
She wants to have him back and say there's nothing to forgive.
He's told her that she's crazy, that he may never want her back.
She's told him that she loves him and though its a risk, she'll live with that.

She wants him to live with patience, to give him time to heal.
The past is not yet over and it's left a scar so real.
We don't choose who we can love, and love doesn't really die.
You can find it in your heart again, I love you, so please try.

  • Ashley
    This poem is almost exactly how things are in my life right now
  • Felicia
    I thought this poem will touch a lot of people who just can't seem to get over their first love. For me, it was sincere and completely true. The guy was the one that did wrong but the girl loves him so much that she just over looks it. Which gives him a reason to leave. LOVE SUCKS!

  • Christina
    I really like this poem because it shows that I'm not the only one that feels this way about someone who I think is very special to me. I wish I could say the same about him but as of right now he don't feel the same right now.

  • kuya

  • Jennifer
    WOW,this is the only poem that ever made me cry. I was looking for a poem for my bf who wants to be alone while hes in Iraq fighting the war.

  • Dee
    Hi,I was just reading your poem and I have to tell you that you have skills. Tell you the truth I'm going through the same thing right at this time and it's amazing because it's me all the way.
  • Gianne
    This is a very nice poem. One of the best that I have ever read. The uncertainties and feelings can very well show. Thank you for sharing it . so that all of us would know.
  • Eddie
    I couldn't stop myself crying when I read that. My g/f left me even though I know she still has feelings for me and this poem brought me to tears so quickly. It's true that you don't choose who you fall in love with, but I keep hearing that time heals. I think all that time does is make you better at hiding your feelings. How do you find and love another when you still cry for the one that left you?
  • Megan
    This poem sums up what I am feeling right now. My boyfriend and I recently broke up after being together for 3& 1/2 years. It started talking to some other girl behind my back and started having feelings for her.
  • Erica
    i love this poem. it reminds me of me and my ex. this is exacualty what is going on with me and my ex. but we dont really know what we want.
  • alex
    hiya this poem brought tears 2 my eyes and it is amazing hw much i understand this poem even though am only 15. U r talented keep it up xxx
  • Crystal
    This is poem very touching. It reminded me of my first love and the man that i love now. It was hard to love again after what my first love did to me. It took time but i open my heart back up again. Because now i know that we don't choose who we want to love, and love doesn't really die. You can find it in your heart again to love, so please try. Don't give up knowing that there is someone out there for you like i almost did.
  • Jenni

  • Nicole

  • kelly
    Wow! I just wanted to say I enjoyed your poem. You captured perfectly the way I have been feeling. I am glad to know that I am not alone in this world. Thank you for your inspiration
  • Mandy
    I loved the poem. It's exactly how I have felt for the past 10 months. I did send this poem to the love of my life and he loved it but still has not come back. I try to keep my faith but it's been so long and just now I hear he has feelings for someone else. Is it possible for him to still come back or do they ever come back after such a long time. We were together 3 yrs. non stop and I am still waiting cuz it's what my heart wants even though my mind tells me somehting else. He said I am the love of his life and hes mine so why can't we be together? I just want to know if they ever come back, if there's hope or am I being foolish. I will never forget this poem. It always makes me cry so thank you Mandy for writing what I feel.
  • Haytham
    its saying my story.
  • shawnee

  • Alissa
    Hey! That poems was great! My boyfriend and I just broke up and I was so in love with him and neither one of us know quite what to think right now. I may send your poem to him. It's a perfect description of us and my hopes that we can find a way to work things out!
  • Jeannette
    This poem really touched my heart. I feel like it was written for me and my husband. When we met, he was wearing an orange shirt, and I was out dancing with my friends. We spent a romantic night at the park. We feel in love and have been together for 18 years. Now he has broken my heart by letting me know that he has been having an affair for over 5 years, and wants to be with her. He stills seems like he loves me, and says he doesn't want me to feel this pain. I think he is confused, and I can only hope that when the confusion is gone, he will realize that no other woman will love and cherish him like I do. I love him with all my heart and am willing to forgive him if he will just let me back in. I realize in most women's eyes I am such a fool. But my love for this man is so deep that there will never be another, so all I can do is hold on to that love. I know I am "Crazy for Holding On".
  • gracie

  • jay
    one thing in there really came out to me. when you said that if you two had never spoken you would have never been in this mess. i really liked that because i was in a relationship with someone and I often thought if i had just sat some where else in class and had not said hello to the guy in front of me . good job very realistic.
  • Alyssa

  • dana
    This poem really touched me. Brings back memories a while ago me and my boyfriend broke up but i didn't know who was to blaim cause we were both in the wrong and I'm so sad without him but he is to hard headed to tell me he still cares and If i run back to him he will think he can say and do to me what he wants. But I can't let him go I love him way so much
  • Shannon
    Your poem touched me so deeply, it was more then the truth. It's crazy to think that so many people have felt this way and go threw the same things each day. I have had a relationship just like this one and gone threw the same but in the end i would never try to replace it or erase it. It will be and he will be apart of me forever even if he knows it or not.
  • Tiffany
    i loved your poem especially with all im going through right now. BY reading your poem you made my day much better. Im going to keep tryin to get him back thanx for the incouragement! Your great

  • sarah
    This is a wonderful poem.
  • Lacey
    I love ur poem so much it brought tears to my eyes reading it!
  • Bill
    *sigh* I read all these comments and they are from women. But let's not forget that guys go through the same thing. I'm hopelessly in love with my soulmate, and at one time, we knew we had a fantastic future together. But she says that she cannot give me what I want, and does not know if she ever can. So forget about her and never think about her again. If only emotions worked like a lightswitch. Thank you Mandy.
  • marcy
    thank you so much for expressing yours and my feelings in your words it was soooo true keep writting
  • Brittany
    I really love this poem I almost cried when I heard it how did you ever start writing poems you are so good at it well good luck. P. S. keep up the good work!
  • NiKi

  • stephanie
    This poem really hits it right on the dot for me. This poem really says how i feel at this point in my life. My husband has left me and told me to move on. But it is really hard to do that when i love him so much. And what him to come back and he just can't. So i thank you for a least knowing there is other people who feel the way i do and can write about it. Thank you.

    This poem is so true. While I was reading it I began to cry, because the recent loss of my lover was just like this. just change some of the him's to her's or he's to she's and that will be it!

    Hey I know how you feel its been nine months since me and the love of my life went our seperate ways and when I finally try to move on he comes back. Its hard to forget about your love and just move on like nothing ever was there. Girl I feel ya.
  • Paula
    This poem is awesome, I am going through exactly what this poem is about. The man I love decided that he just does not feel that love for me in his heart, yet he comes back time and time again to keep me in his life, this poem helps me deal with what I have to do in this situation
  • lightskinn03
    this reminds me of what is going on in my life today. It made me cry.
  • Manda
    Very well written. The poem relates to me in such a direct way. I would have and still would take my ex back after all he has put me through, I still love and probably will for the rest of my life. We haven't been together for a very long time now but what you have written has made me feel that someone else out there has been in the identical boat. I will love him deeply forever.

  • Gina
    I just have to say, diddo. It's been 15 months since that one-in-a-lifetime love decided to leave, but it's been hard to just move on, although, I know I should. Your poem is word for word how I feel & the thoughts I think. I wish I could give this to him. Thanks for sharing your wonderful poem.
  • Penumbra
    Great poem that really expresses problems in perceptions and communications that are the problem in many relationships. I am sending this to my husband as a last-ditch effort; a plea for him to talk to me and go to counceling with me. Wish me and my broken heart luck!
  • Kirsti
    This poem goes beyond words. I can't describe how it makes me feel and I can't believe that someone else could write exactly what I've been thinking and feeling for the last 12 months. This is great, and I wish you luck with him. Hopefully oneday he'll wake up to what he's missing and he'll be back. In the meantime, all we can do is wait. Keep up the awesome work!
  • mary
    all i can say is OMG this describes the end of my marriage but i never had the words. its been six years now n when will it ever end? keep writing
  • honey
    I am sitting here with tears in my eyes..only this morning, my love and I parted. This poem tells exactly how I feel and how my heart aches for him. I didn't think anyone would understand how you can still love someone who does you wrong.but you do.
  • Jeanette
    i am going through a bad divorce and this poem said everything that i needed to hear, it is my whole relationship. you have a tremendous gift, use it,
  • Rebecca
    I met the mst amazing guy at the shore this summer.....and it was the best 2 days of my entire life....but I'm home now and he lives in another state....we stay in touch but it hurts so bad because i miss him SO much.....when i read these 2 lines of your poem it made me feel better because i always have our memories to think back on: But time has taken prisoners, their lives are now entwined. But even if they never meet again, the past is not left behind.
  • Tiffany
    This poem is amazing, it speaks right to your heart and describes me and the guy I'm still in love with so well.

  • Lisa
    Mandy, I do believe that you have written a beautiful poem that truly moved me and actually brought up feelings that I have hinden deep within.Thank you!
  • Saicora
    I have to agree with other readers, this poem is exactly what I am going through with my husband right now, in where he wants to leave and I don't want him to go. I'm a poet myself, published multiple times and even I could not write something this beautiful. I applaud you, from poet to poet. This could not have been written any better.
  • horsegirl02

  • Skitz
    WOW! that was awesome! you did an excellent job! great rhyming, it was great, it was long, it made you understand! KUDOS TO YOU MANDY! (by the way, the name mandy rocks!)
  • Natalie
    OH MY GOSH! That is the best poem I have ever read! I know how you feel, because my boyfriend, was hurting and he said thanks to me he no longer does, then he broke up with me. He was my best friend and we broke up before and we got back together, then he broke up with me again, and I told him I'll always love him because true love never dies and this poem says that. The last couple of lines are the best! Great work!
  • tavia

  • kathryn
    This poem made me think of my husband who I still love but try hard not to, and he loves me. But yes, we are prisoners, prisoners of the damage done. And both of us have lost the love of our lives. Thank you for this poem. I copied it to my journal.
  • Chelsey
    I'm sorry about your sister, love is a reason in itself to live. Maybe she is loving someone where she is now. I am sorry about your loss too...but it's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. You found more happiness during that short while when you were in love that some ppl. will spend their whole loves looking for.
  • Holly
