This poem is my way of expressing my feelings of losing someone that I care very much about. I hope no one has to feel that hurt, but I also know it is a part of life. I care for this guy very much.

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

Falling In And Out Of Love
When I say I love you I do
But this with you will not do
I need someone I can lean on
Someone I can count on too

Yes you are there sometimes
For that I am grateful to you
But I need someone there full time
And that you can not do

You told me once you loved me
That I could believe in you
I was there when you needed someone
Where were you when I needed someone, too?

The time has come for me to let go
Never to expect you to care again
People may come and people may go
But my love will never end

    This poem really touched me. I just left a seven year relationship, from being engaged and having a beautiful baby girl with this man. just so many things have changed and i couldn't take it anymore. I feel this is gonna be the worst mistake ever. but I will do my best to care for my little girl and to keep my head up and be very strong.

    I read this four days after I broke up with my boyfriend Jake. We have been going out for three years straight. I gave him everything, I dropped my pains to suppport him. When it came to a point I possibly could move on, he told me he didnt want to hear it. What a jerk. I love him, and even now it upsets me, thinking that I could be making a mistake. Yet, I realize now, how much of a jerk he was. Reading this poem is something that reminds me of the situation, thank you rose. May all of our wounds heal.

  • Chuang
    Sometimes people try too hard. What's given is not the other's want. What's recieved is not what's expected. Nothing is ever enough. Acceptance, together. Ignorance, lost forever.

    I have been reading a lot of poems on this site and I can honestly say that this is the best poem I have heard in a very long time. It gets right to the point of the subject. She says what she has too say without dragging it along. I just broke up with my man and he treated me the way your poem went, and I didn't know what to say that would make him understand how I felt until I read this wonderful poem. To you I am very thankful. :)
