A Poem written to vent out or simply express to someone feelings, and not actually expect them to assume anything other.

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

Have You?
Have You ever loved someone
But knew they didn't care?
Have You ever felt like crying
But Knew you'd get no where?

Have you ever looked into their eyes
And said a little prayer?
Have you ever looked into their hearts
And wished that you were there?

Have you ever felt their heartbeat,
When the lights were turned down low?
Have you ever whispered "God, I love You"
But you'll never let me show?

Love is grand, yet it hurts so much.
The price you pay is high.
If I could choose between Love and Death,
I'd rather choose to die.

So do not fall in love, my friend,
It doesn't pay a dime.
It only causes broken hearts,
Yet it happens all the time.

So do not fall in love, my friend,
You'll hurt before it's through.
I ought to know, my friend -
I fell in love with you.

    This poem means a lot to me and really touched me because just recently my ex-boyfriend and I had a really big arguement. I still have feelings for him and this is exactly how I felt towards him! He just never understood and never will but now it's all completly over now even as being friends and I'm hurting soo much! I love this poem because it's really touching and moving.

    Fantastic poem. even though they are the words of a teenager. I should know because I am the original author and I wrote this while in high school (1996).

  • Liz
    I loved your poem. However, I found it sad that you felt you had to use another authors work. I have read the line about choosing between love and death, and several other lines in this poem as well, in an anthology I own. It is sad when a poet resorts to plagiarism.
  • Andrew
    You can't choose who you love, it just happens. Some say that love is the greatest power in life. If that is true, then love shattered and lost must truly destroy it. I should know.Do as I may, the love I held for one was not returned.

    What can I say? This poem hit me right in the Heart! Excellent poetry, but sadly, you have to have experienced it, to truly understand the bittersweet rhymes of this poem. I for one, have still not hit the bottom, so I'm still falling...

    I dont even know where to begin. This poem is great. 5 STARS! I can really relate. I have been there and I would not wish that kind of hurt and pain on my worst enemy. A poem like this can only be written from experience. You can feel the emotion and the pain as you read!
