This poem comes straight from my heart. I met this guy online one night. He just stole my heart right then and there. Until we just stopped talking. When I tried to get a hold of him I found he had changed his Screenname and was gone from my life forever. I am definitely no poet but I needed a way to express my feelings.

This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Cyber Romance Poems

My Love
Staring at a blank screen
waiting for your arrival
but you never come.
How could you leave me like this
alone in a world so cold
You told me you loved me with all your heart
I should have known from the very start
that our love would come to a bitter end.
I will remain waiting for you, though,
staring through my teary eyes
and hoping for an I.M. that will never come
knowing that I am just a figment from your past
and that this is really the end.

  • brandy
    I dont know what to say about this poem. Its sad but true. i did the same thing to a guy. For six months we grew in knowledge of eachother. Up past two in the mouring telling eachother how much we loved each other. I even almost moved up there. Until my ex came back into my life. I had a urge for a love that i could see. to be touched and kissed was a dream i was not willing to be patient for. So i left him, broke his heart. I dont know if i'll forgive myself for hurting him, or if he forgive me. But i do know that i am with a guy now that has changed my life, we will be wed on june 16th 2006

    Hey Missy, your poem totally just described my whole situation. This just happened to me last week. She broke my heart after for talking with her for one year now, and we almost met. Even though my heart is broken, I still do think of her and keep praying to God that she will call or email. Love can be a beautiful thing, but unfortunately for you and I it did not work out , yet.

    This poem had exactly what I feel for my internet friend when he is angry with me. Tears run down from my eye when he just went offline when he see my name appear on screen. But now, we are alright already.
  • Cute_one

    I read two of Missys poems and i could relate to both. She is a wonderful writer
  • bex
    That is very strange, the exact same thing happened to me, witha guy on the net, i was totally in love but he dissapeared leaving no trace. It deeply hurt me and i havn't forgot him, and wont forget him. but its just amazing how things can blossom from the net. i love your poem, it discribes the exact feelings i felt. thank-you for that

    You know what honey, nothing, your a strong woman and very couragous to put your feelings on the internet. Woman like you make us woman look and feel strong, emotionally and mentally. Don't ever stop laughing, cause you never know who's falling in love with your smile :D
  • amy
    the same thing happened to me and it broke my heart.

    I know where you are coming from with this, and you have handled it wonderfully with your words. I'm so sorry this happened, but time does ease the pain, and so does writing. I hope you find someone worthy of you.

    so true....we've all been there. Maybe on both sides I am afraid. This is what we give ourselves.
  • maureen
    Sad how this touched me so Missy, yet from a different path. I too loved and was loved deeply for 18 months vis net,only to lose him instantly one day in a car accident. We let the ache of unfullfilled dreams flow out in the tears from our eyes.
  • Karlie
    Missy, I know exactly how you feel. The same thing has happened to me and my heart cries. You are not alone.
