This poem I wrote when I found myself falling in love with this man that was so beautiful and sweet to me when I was with him, but could never love me beyond his bed.

I misinterpreted his emotions and let my heart melt into his thoughts and saw that it meant nothing. He made love to me and then walked away with no emotion, time after time, and still I continued breaking my own heart, in the process of trying to keep his interest and keeping hope that he could love me. I finally had to realize no matter what I did he was using me and would never love me like I did him. I let his mind-games control my life and found myself living in too much of a fantasy that I created in my mind and I finally awoke when he said "I'll always love you as a friend."

Those words broke my heart and finally I had to let go.

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

Making Love To A Friend
You were always so perfect to me,
so soft and gentle,
cherishing you instantly,
without a second glance,
I never distrusted those eyes,
that lied to me continuously,
I promised you I'd always try,
but slowly you were losing me.

I would always have given you anything,
just to keep your interest,
stopping my heart from remembering,
all the pain you caused,
I never pulled away from that kiss,
that held a painful hint of truth,
Maybe you'd be too hard to miss,
so I said I was still in love with you.

I wanted more than just the infatuation,
that you found in me.
You said love was only a distraction,
that you really didn't need,
so I cried myself to sleep,
knowing the times we shared must end.
You couldn't let emotion run deep,
you said you made love to me, as a friend.

But eventually, my love,
friendships fade, too,
and I can't make love and walk away,
pretending I don't love you.
Never once did I push you away,
but everything comes to end,
so all that's left to say,
is goodbye,

I loved loving you, my friend.

    I am really touched by the poem. I never thought that we are of the same situation. I was in-love with a friend whom I gave everything I can but only treated me like I am nothing for him. He was good to me in the sense that I am just a friend, ignoring me like he doesn't care at all after getting what he wants. Now, I could not move on yet with my life. I don't want revenge, but I am still hoping we could be friends till I forget him.
  • veronica
    this pome i would have to say stated off sad,but in the end strong. the person who wrote this pome was strong let go somebody who didn't love him. it's hard to let go someone you love.
  • rinesha
    nice one. keep it up.
  • An
    Hey ya'll u should vote this one because this is a real peom that what everbody go's through so is not the only one
  • Rosie
    thank you. iv been through just this my bf doesnt love me like i love him he just uses me, i was too blind to see it until my best friend pointed it out. the thought that he uses me never even crossed my mind. i dont want to turn him into the enemy because he used to be my besst friend. i had my self think it was something i was doing wrong, and it was; i am such a coward to think that i cant take one more heart break. i feel so lonely without a boyfriend, someone to fall back on when i am depressed. you create the illision that they are all you have, and they hurt you again. thank you
  • daphney
  • carmen
    i have been in this situation exactly. i know the hurt. the loving someone who deosnt love you in the same way, they only loved you when they wanted something, and ut hurts when you realise the truth yet you still love them. just not their poisonous words.
  • TINA
    I really liked your poem it was cool. it was touching and understanding! :]
  • Leila
    What a heartbreakingly beautiful poem. I am deeply touched by it. Unrequited love is incredibly painful.
  • Jade
    Deep! It's crazy what guys can say and do! How they can do this im not sure. . . It's so hard to get over the feeling is so painful, full of confusion and hurt i'm sure it's a feeling you won't forget! But Dont frown you never know whos fallin in lobe with your smile! : )! Stay Strong!
  • sonia
    This poem really touched me. I'm in the exact situation at the moment and it hurts knowing that the person will never love you the same way you do. although as the days pass you give yourself lost hope that they someday will knowing they won't!
  • Angel
    Very beautiful poem which so many people can relate to including myself! Though I rather be happy for the short moments that we are together than say goodbye.
  • liz
    I really liked this poem it reminded me of me this happend to me too i thought he loved me but no all he wanted is to"make love" i was so stupid i fell for it and i'm only 15 I'm still in pain and i used to cry to sleep but I realized i got to let go i can;t change what he doenst feel for me
  • Jade
    I really loved this poem only because it hits so close to home for i was going through the same thing. and know exactly how it feels: to love someone that only want you for sex and on top of everything is a good friend in my case a friend of 8 years!
  • crystal
    this poem really touched my heart. i actually cry evey time i read it. things in life is crazy, but for a second when you think you found that perfect someone life actually stands still. but the only hard part about it is when that person cant love you back this poem rules!
  • Felicia
    i absolutely loved this poem i know exactly how it is to feel that way
  • tracey
    i really loved this poem. I just ended a relationship and that is exactly how i feel. We were dating, but the interset never left the bed. He wouldn't want to hang out and go out he wanted to stay in and "make love" But slowly as time rolled on, i began to realize that and realize i was worth so much more than that. WE broke up 10 days ago and he's already with another girl. So i guess me loving him just wasn't enough, because i wasn't getting love in return. I loved your poem.
    that is about the same way i feel

    The poem reminded me of the man I love who hurt me by making me believe he loved me as much as I love him.
  • Heather
    im crying. did this really happen 2 u? it happend 2 meh. thx cuz i think dis poem kinda took away some of da pain he left meh with.
  • siti
    The poem kind of reminded me of my own situation and the words made me realised that no matter how hard it feels,i have to move on with my life instead of hanging onto something that can never be. No matter how much you may care for a person,you must always think of what's best for yourself! I've learned it the hard way!

    This same thing is happening to me. I just haven't let go yet. I'm in that transition stage and I really think this poem will help me to realize that all he want's is my body. not my love. So thank you for writing this poem and helping me to move on.
  • Terri
    this is very good
  • Zakiya
    If you have had your heart broken then this poem should bring out the strength in you. I loved it
  • Sara
    I read this poem and it made me cry. I was in a situation just like this for a period of 2.5 years. When I finally just said goodbye he couldn't understand. He believed I was simply mad at him. This poem expresses eveything that I felt.
  • me
    i went through the same thing. the only thing is is that he was my ex and he had a g/f at the time. i was still in love with him. but he just played head games with me. now he gets mad at me for not talking to him in school,but do you blame me?
  • Jennifer
    It is never easy to admit when our love goes unappreciated or unreturned. However, as much as it can hurt to give and not receive love back, it is so important to express our feelings of love to those we care for as often as we get the opportunity. You can never know when the moment you miss is the last chance you have.
  • salvador
    Tha is deep. I can relate to it. P. S. I almost cryed :(

  • Stit

  • Lynda
    I felt the same way about my friend and he said he loved me too. I keep thinking of him all night and day but I can't. I tried to stop so many times but couldn't. He made love to me and now all he acts to me. is like a friend. Your poem is really good. it made me cry
  • Jennifer
    I enjoyed this poem very much. It captures the innocence before and the heartache after when you lose someone that things went too far with or not far enough and your heart is bleeding so much you go numb.
  • Deborah
    I read all the peoms that were on this site and this is the one poem that made me cry. I really love this poem and really felt how she felt.
  • pres
    i was surprised to read all the comments about this poem. i am in that exact situation right now, and it's just a relief that i'm not the only one going through it. this poem just touched me so deeply. i want out of this relationship and stop hurting myself but i just haven't found enough strength to do it. thank you so much for this poem.
  • Laura
    I've lived your poem. I loved someone who though my one and only lover, never loved me for my heart. Used and more lonely than i'd ever been I did what you did. I said goodbye. The only difference is the someone i loved was a woman. Love hurts no matter the gender, no matter the person, no matter the time. Needless to say your poem touched my soul. Thank you for sharing it.
  • Nong
    I love your poem as it can tell what I think in my mind. And I think it working with many people too. Hop
  • fame
    i was a little bit taken aback of this poem because we had a similar situation, the only difference is he was the one inlove with me and he was just a friend to me. i felt bad after reading it and ought to change our situation. too much things happened in this poem that nearly broke my heart but 'twas a good poem for me. i do hope the author had moved on. and happy right n0w.
  • Robin
    Very good.
  • lee
    When I read your introduction to the poem I couldnt believe that someone else has been through EXACTLY the same experience as me. The same thing happened to me for a year when I too realised that I had to let go. Your poem really touched me and made me realise that I am not alone. Thank you.
  • Molly
    I enjoyed this poem. My situation is different though. This person could easily be the love of my life. We spend almost all of our time together, we basically live together now though I have my own place. The only thing is that he is gay. So we love in every other way, compatible in every other way, close in every way, but physically we will never be. At least not that I forsee. But. I wouldn't give him up for the world. Friendship that is. Someday I'll find someone to love in all ways and move on. I loved the poem, best wishes.
  • dan
    i thought ur poem was really good as i can totally relate to im going through somthing at the moment and this poem has made me make som sence of wats going on i think its tym i said goodbye to my friend
  • Sean
    this poem really clicked with me, i can actully relate to this poem. it really touches your heart. well done amber! and thankyou
  • Amanda
    OMG! this poem so explains the situation i am in right now! i met this dude and we have been friends for a while and he never tried to make a move on me until him and his g/f broke up and i told him no because i didnt want to loose a good friendship. He swore to me that he wouldnt do it and that we would never quit being friends and maybe some day something more so i gave into the peer presure and now he hasnt called me and i havent called him. I put it that if a guy dosent call me i won't call him. but i still kinda have feelings for him so its really hard not to pick up the phone and make the same mistake all over again.
  • Aryssa
    I think this poem is great because it resembles me. Take away making love because i'm only 12 but fill it in with loving them and it's what i just went through with my boyfriend who i'm still in love with deeply.
  • nina
    i thought i was the only one to ever feel this way. yet you said all that i was never abe to say. i thank you

  • Whitney
    this poem made me think back on all the screwed up relationships that had taken their tole on me and i like that! i don't know why but for some reason looking back and remembering how it felt so long ago brings a certain sense of security to my heart! i want to thank you for writing such a beasutiful heart felt poem, and allowing it to be shared with others!
  • amy

  • jamie
    it was a very sweet poem and i really liked it cause it kindove explains how i feel.
  • ronald
    this poem is very touching to me thank you for making this 1
  • Rhea
    This poem touched me because i too had a friend that after being with him, i just wanted him after that. Not only for the love but his personality, humour, and how good of a person he was, how real he was. but when i admitted to him how i felt he said we were only friends and no more then that. He broke my heart. And even after telling me how he felt i still ran back to him for everything. I still wanted him. Needed him. And after reading this i realized i cant keep trying to get him to love me. You cant force a pesron to love you. With that, i can only tell him goodbye.
  • Kelsey
    Hey your poem was GREAT! It made me think about my x b/f! We wasn't datin i think he just wanted to make out with some one that someone had to be me. He still wants to be friends but i don't think i want to be. Not after the way he treated me. Keep writing GREAT poems that help you and others.

  • Brie
    I love your poem. I have been in a relationship 4 years and I found out that he was playing me for 2 I could not let him go because i love him so much so it got to the point where i wanted to push him away so I lied and told him that I had found someone else and he just walked in my house today and started a fight want to know who the next guy is I told him not to worry about it just like he dident worry about use so he stole my cell phone and has been calling every number in it. WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IS THANK YOU FOR SAYING WHAT I FEEL AND CAN NOT PUT TO WORDS AS BEAUTFUL AS YOU DID THANK YOU AGAIN *BRIE*

    I recently became intimate with my best friend in the whole world. I know i'm falling in love with him, but he doesnt feel the same way. I'm scared and hurting, i dont know what to do or what to say. Its been 4 months since this started, and we are still doing it to this day. I dont wanna say anything, cuz i'm afraid of loosing him. I know theres something more between the 2 of us. He confuessed a while ago, but he has changed his mind. When i read this peom, it made me think on how i need to end this problem! Thankyou!
  • adrianna

    i also have a similar relationship with a man 10 yrs my junior. he is everything to me but he can just seem to walk away, not call but come back into my life at anytime we swore we would not get serious and involved with eachother, he held up his part of the bargain but me i fell in love. this is the man of my dreams i also fool myself everyday thinking he loves me too. i don't even care if i have been used he is everything to me, i want to meet someone just like him i look everywhere and no one i can find like my george. i have never been so hurt my heart truly hurts i can feel it and my tears never stop.

  • veronica
    I Loooved this Poem it's soo true how a person can create a fantasy world in their head how they WISH the other person would feel about them. It's sad but true how some people can make love and not really FEEL love.
  • Tiffany
    It was real good, I loved it.

  • jessica
    I really enjoyed this poem, i can really relate to it. sometimes we have to play and beat men at their own game, thats when they feel it the most
  • rosa
    i loved ur poem even if i can't relate to it . which is y it makes it even better couse it still thouched me. i felt anger towards the guy u wrote about n all men in general. but i admired u for still not putting him down in the end.
  • Ami
    What moved me is the fact that this poem has so elegantly summed up the last 4 years of my life. When you fall in love with your best friend and it is not reciprocated, one feels that they are suffering daily mortalities. The decision to endure one mortality and in fact to day goodbye takes courage and perhaps something else beyond the love you actually felt. I used to think that things would get better if I tried harder, this was a fundamental flaw within me, not him
  • amanda
    i loved your poem, im in that exact situation right now i just havent got the courage to let him go yet, its very hard but i know ive already lost him and he is still losin me.
  • Emma
    Aw, this poem really touched me. I've been in a realationship like this before and it did hurt, so thanks for sharing this with us. =)
  • hana
    I should say that was the most magnificient piece that i've ever recalled reading. In a way or another it somehow made me realize that i should make a full-stop to all my miseries that i'm having with this guy who i should say, made love to me as a friend. Thank You Amber. Thank You for giving me the courage to face the truth.
  • Paige
    Hey listen i really liked this poem. this poem is just wonderful. b/c i have relized for the last 4 months i have been making myself believe he still cares when he doesnt. thanx for the good writting GREAT JOB
  • Adrian
    This poem was very moving! I knew I could always read this when I feel the same way! It really does make me wonder, though, what is the point of view for the man? I guess it's just a mystery! But all in all this poem was AWESOME! :D
  • Katie
    This poem really touched me in a lot of different ways! It reminds me so much of me and my ex boyfriend. I want you to keep writing poems and maybe you can become famous someday in poetry! This poem reaches into peoples hearts and lets you say what you feel like saying! Thanks for opening your heart to write this poem! Keep it up!

    This poem touched me. Im trying to get over this very thing, this very second. Every second of the day every once of energy I have goes towards trying to not cry, not to think of the one I love who told me that "We will always be friends". Thank you for making me realize Im not alone in this pain

    this poem touches me more than any other poem. I'm experiencing this poem presently and it started about 2 years ago. I don't know what to do. I don't know why I let it continue but it's a passion I have for him that I can't just forget about. He is my best friend too.

    i really like this poem. it help me 2 know that it is not just loving, but you should know how 2 value a feeling when you enter a relationship. not only you show comfort and care,, eventhough you have it all you should know how 2 love and take seriously. every person encountered that kind. for me loving someone truly is the greatset achievement you did in your life.

    This poem deeply touched on my last relationship. My boyfriend and I started out as friends and then he wanted to take it farther. Well, I agreed not knowing he was going to break my heart in the end. Yet, I still love him. I'm more mad at myself for giving in way too soon.

    On a scale from 1 to 10 I give your poem a 10 because I feel where you are coming from. I know it's hard to look at him like you used to and it's even harder to hold a converstion with him. When I was reading your poem all I did is shook my head because I feel what you are talking about. I can relate with you. Just keep up the good work and keep your head up.
  • Samantha

    In the beginning of my similar relationship, there was two things that were 1)don't tell any one and 2)don't let imotions get involved.

    I really loved this poem. I could easily relate. It brought tears to my eyes because It's so true. :)
  • Francois
    Beautifully written. When someone tells you they are falling in love with you. It touches your heart and you feel that you are their only one. When they find something out about you that they don't like. It changes everything. Because then they put thier guard back up. Then they say "Let's just be friends". That can tear a person apart, because they believed in something or someone that never wanted to really love them to begin with.
    hey girl , how did you get in my head. you just read my life out loud to the world. thats CraZy . I LOVE THIS POEM!
  • Stacey

  • Rachel
    i was only 13 and i had a really good guy friend. as we started to talk more i began to like him more than a friend. when he found out i liked him, he started to like me, i think only because he knew i liked him. i got over my head and started thinking about things like maybe we would go out and i would just imagine us together. i felt like i had fallen in love with him at the age of 13. but i was wrong. he just broke my heart and told me that he only liked me as a friend.
