Even normal day to day things become alien when you are lost inside yourself. The struggles to regain a sense of ourselves when we have long been part of another person is a test of our ability to navigate in a strange new world.

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

Terra Incognizant
You would think by now, I would know my way around,
I shouldn't miss you so badly, I should be on familiar ground.
How many more lonely years, must meander by,
until I learn the lesson, it does no good to cry.
What manner of iron will, must some people possess,
to be always looking forward, to never accept regress.
Perhaps if I was willing, to let someone take me by the hand,
they could show me a happy place, in this unfamiliar land.
Perhaps I'm only homesick, for all the joys that once were mine,
I must accept that they and you, belong to another place and time.
But I know that deep within my heart, there's a place where only you reside,
and when the pain of loneliness comes, it knows that is where I hide.
So if sometimes it seems to you, I'm clinging to the past,
it's mostly because I can't yet accept, that our love didn't last.
No matter how hard I try, I've yet to get over you,
for the part of me that's still alive, believes you love me too.
Maybe there will come a day, when that part will finally die,
and feeling strong with a heart reborn, a new love I will finally try.
And what a splendid day that will be, when I awaken to discover,
I'm happily learning a great new land, with a great new friend and lover.

  • lonelyhere
    This poem really touched my heart. it even made me cry. It captured the real emotions that are going through my head. It's really, i mean REALLY hard to let go of something that has been a part of your existence. But i just wish that someday, i will have the courage to love again. To love someone much more than i loved him.
  • katrina
    fantastic poem! got to my heart!1
  • Schyler
    This is a well-written poem that flows well. It is exactly how I have felt for a couple months. My soulmate left me abruptly without a clear reason why, and my heart has been ripped in half. I feel depressed and I must constantly hide my true emotions from everyone. My mind is stuck in the past with all the great memories I have of us being so happy together. To this day I still love her endlessly and I don't know how to move on.
  • Julie
    You Made me cry. This is a fabulously sad and very exact poem. I truly know every word is ingrained deep inside of me. Im there feeling like I'm drowning and trying I'm to pull myself up for air.

  • Crystal
    This poem was so touching. I had a friend that i shared a very brief (2months) yet very passionate romance with and then he moved far away. He and I continued to talk and he would tell me he loved me every week. Then one day I called and another girl answered the phone. I have yet to get over him, though I try and try. We still talk occasionally but I don't know what happened and we don't talk about it. This poem said exactly how I feel.
  • Tony
    It's been about 15 years since I saw her last. This poem is like someone went into my heart and found how much I have missed her and put my feelings down on paper

  • Nikki
    i liked this poem because its kinda what im going through now. i just got out of a relationship with the one that i love and we can't be together because of our familys. but it seems like i cant move on to any other guy that likes me because im in love with the one that i cant be with. its so hard to get over him but the relationship wasn't the best and i need to be strong and move on but its just like i cant.
  • teisha
    i am really likeing this poem and im feeling this 100 percent. the reason i like this poem because im in a situation like this and this poem got me memories.
  • Kathleen
    This poem means a lot to me. For one thing I just lost my one and only true love. I thought that we were going to be togeter forever. He was someone that had a very strong heart about things. I didn't think that we would ever separate. The effection that he showed me was unreal. There was that tingle that always lasted in me, every time I thought of him, everytime he got close to me. I had hoped it would last forever. But I guess not. Things in our relationship went wrong. I opened my mouth and told the truth but no one believed. It is hard to believe that we aren't going to be together anymore. Now it is time for me to try to leave him and it's hard. It's harder then you'll ever believe. He was my everything. I needed him in so many ways. And now it is gone. I hope, and I pray that it is not true. But deep down I know that it is over. I love him so, but I guess it is time to let go, even if I don't want to. I had a hard time reading this poem because I just broke up with my boyfriend. I loved him so much and still do. Oh well though. Time will pass and things might, but more then likely not, get better between the two of us. If it doesn't I'll put up with it. All I know is that I will never love anyone else as much as I loved him.
  • Jocelyne

    I really loved reading your poem cuz when you lose someone you love so much, you do feel lost without them. And you do tend to go back to them for comfort. So yeah. this poem basically said everything I'm feelin right now. and it's nice to know that someone can understand what I feel when none of my friends can.
  • alicia

  • Love
  • Kaylah
    This poem, touched me. It was very uniqley written. The thing I liked most about this poem was that this is the exact way I feel, trying to overcome my past and never wanting to move onto the future. I can't explain it exactly, you know some things can't be explained in words, but this poem was beautiful. Thanks for taking the time to write it.
  • andrea
    awesome poem!
  • Vallini
    this poem has impacted me bcuz its been over a year & i still can't get over my ex who had played me for a fool. i broke it off with him but i was still in love with him then and still now. i can't open my heart to others yet but i hope one "splendid day" i will. just like the poem says!
  • megan
    all i can say is thank you for writing this. you put the thoughts that i could not but in to words in a wonderful poem. im glad im not the only one that feels for someone so stongly so long after they left, again thank you
  • Epiphany
    What happens when you don't want to let go? When everything hurts but you need to feel the pain because at least that is something? What happens when you are so in love with someone that inside you die willingly to protect themm and everything they already have? Why is it so wrong to feel or do these things? I loved your poem, but in it you stated in so many words that you would be willing to walk away at some point. I am not so willing. I have a love that burns only for one person and he loves me too but things have happened and everything has been torn apart!
  • Sasha
    This poem is sensational! my breakup was like that and i'm trying to move on. inspiration like your poem really helps with that. thanks for helping all of us who need to learn to love again move on!

  • Lily
    I needed to know what to about this pain that lingers, moving into shadow, only to reemerge when a ray of memory reveals its hiding place. And, then, your poem crosses my path and I realize I am so homesick for the warmth of the good times. Now, I know. I'm homesick.
  • milytza
    this poem was great and the person who wrote it is a very excellent writer.
  • Porche
    I really enjoyed your poem because it touched me. It feels as if I've been living your life because I've been going through something similar, but I guess sometimes you have to wake up out of that fairytale life, and just move on.
  • Jenee'

  • jacob

  • dev i
    one of the best poems i have ever read
  • Paul
    Beautiful and rhythmic!
  • Nakeisha
    It was excellent. I can relate because sometimes things go so good in a relationship and then its all over. And sometimes you do not know what to do next. Life seems meaningless now that, that special someone is gone. Then one day you wake up and realize that you can go on and there is more to the world than just that mere inidividual. I can relate because I seem to constantly be falling in and out of love and do not know where to go next. Finally I cry and cry, realizing that I am still here and I'm still breathing. I have never ever felt so low as I felt when I was broken hearted and i felt like I was in a world of my own. This poem has my name written all over it.
  • Shawna
    Wow, that poem is amazing. I was looking for something to explain how I felt after breaking up with the love of my life, and this poem truly captured everything I was trying to express.
  • kay
    i write poems too and i would share them but i hate sharing how i feel,but i give the person who wrote this poem props. you got the guts to express!
  • al
    it just says so much in just the right way
  • alen
    oh my gosh. this poem was a touching one and know how you really feel. becuase i have a broken heart too. and i still see my true love but every time i try to talk to him it seems like a wall comes in front of me and i dont see him anymore . and now i feel so lonley but there is one thing i love him too much and i will always thnk about him. but iam still lonley without him by my side
  • Mandi
    This is a great poem. I can relate to it so much, it says exactly how i feel! thanks for writing such a fantastic piece of work!
  • Allena
    this was a great poem. This is exactly how I feel right now. I dumped my ex because I was scared of getting hurt even though I really loved him. This made me cry. Keep writing your awesome.
  • Mari
    i loved your poem, i couldnt have put it better myself. that is exactly how i am feeling, i wish i could say that i dont liove him anymore but i just can't. The love that i feel for this person is stronger than i am and your poem fits perfectly to how i am feeling because i believe he loves me TOO.
  • courtany
    dis is off tha chains im not sure if this really happend to you or not but i just went through the same exact thing with my boy friend and it sounds like something i would say
  • Jacqueline
    Hey thanks so much for wrighting this poem! It totally expresses what I feel and what I went through. The guy I thought I loved and that I thought loved me back was just playing me. At first he told me he loved me but then he told me we should just be friends because he thought he was going to get back with his ex. I was crushed completely, but what could I do, I guess I just have to wait until he loves me too. Even though we aren't even friends no more I will always remmember him as the guy that broke my heart, and as my one true love, that didn't feel the same way. *
  • jessica
    omg i so cried when i read this poem. you are a very talented writter and should keep on writing what you feel
  • Kandy
    This was perfect, I feel the same way about the love of my life. I haven't been with him for 12 years, but I just can't let go.

  • Lttl Rinoa
    Prometheus, your poem touched me to the very last line. I've never yet seen a beautiful poet on this site up until I read this poem by you. I truly have sympathy for you and of course I've been where you have about these feelings. The most touching line of all that got to me was "No matter how hard I try, I've yet to get over you, for the part of me that's still alive, believes you love me too. " That one was so nicely done, I would like to applaud you on that one. Just keep up that great work and I hope to hear more poems from you.

  • Melissa
    This Poem touched me deeply. It sounds stupid, but my one and only true love, Michael, and I broke up over 3 yrs ago 1/06/00 to be exact. God, i've moved on in all aspects of my life- accept the part where he was apart of, my heart. I've dated many guys, but he is still that knight in shining armor and radiats so in my heart. I do tend to revert to 'that place', i could still cry b/c i can't beleive it once was and will never be me and my 'dorkface' again.

  • Phil
    This poem is amazing . It touches all the philosophical terms of love , But with a new world twist. it feeling it `s emotions are out of this world . the way the writter talks about a love lost , and the hope of finding another , yet knowing that the love that he/she feels will never fade and the lonelines that hides with in rips at the memory of a lost love. My opinion from a scale 1- 10 this one scores a 20

  • Monet
    It was so easy for me to relate to the poem. it touches on what one truly feels after a lost love-the hoping that still lingers that one day, the love will come back;and the acceptance that love takes time to heal; and the hoping that someday, letting go wil be reality.

  • Cathy
    For me this poem said it all. I have been trying for over 2 years to forget the person I loved and still I can't, he remains forever in my heart and soul, even though he hurt me *mentally* so much. And I am still longing for the day when I can move on and love fully again. Sometimes like you I wonder if the day will ever come as it has already been so long, but I will not give up on love I keep telling myself it will find me again.if only I could say Goodbye to that one person.

    This poem made me really sad and cry and remember that I'm really not over my ex. She's married now and I still can't forget about her. Something is and possibly will always be with me and it's hard to explain why. It's comforting to know I'm not abnormal or alone in this.

    This is a truly beautiful, beautiful poem. I broke up with my boyfriend a few weeks back, and this poem brought it all back crashing down. I still cannot forget him -- his touch, his smile, his *love* -- but, as the poem goes, I will find the courage to love again one day. But, for now, that part of him still lives in me.
