This poem was inspired by the true story of a friend going through a divorce after four years. I could not help but feel her pain every time I spoke with her, and this is my attempt to ease her pain. If only just a little.

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

She Walks
She walks along this lonely street
no one to dry her tears
massage her tired feet
or calm ever present fears

Seeing life through tainted heart
making everything gray
Alone, her life, anew to start
Always searching for a way

But life goes on no matter what
That fact she cannot quell
Memories ne'er to be forgot
Within her heart they dwell

So she keeps walking this lonely street
Keeps searching to find her way
Every night she lies down to sleep
And prays tomorrow's a better day

    i really liked this poem, because it tells you absolutely how one feels, how lost you get when someone you love just leaves you in the middle of everything, I am going through a divorce also, and I don't think any better words could have explained how I feel better then this poem. it touched me deeply.

    This poem could have been written about me. I am going through a divorce after being married for 23 years and everything feels uncertain. It captures my feelings concisely.
  • Heather
    this is a beautiful poem. Although it's a reminder of times I've felt this way, it is also in a way strangely uplifting. one of the best poems I have read in a very long time.

    A very true and touching poem.I have faced something very similar in my life and can relate to every feeling that you attempt to touch upon.infact even though i've found someone who Loves me from the bottom of his heart.yet, i doubt the true essence of Love.doubt him.doubt my own capacity to do justice to his Love.maybe I'm living on a moat.or maybe I'm walking alone!
  • Rafia
    This is avery touching poem, I liked it a lot..
  • Lady
    I can also relate to "her". I went through a nasty divorce and a relationship all within 1 year and both ended really bad. it is been 1 year today since the breakup with the boyfriend whom I gave all of my heart and soul to. Do you ever really let them go?? Or do you just learn to "cope" with the pain and emptiness? I now have someone in my life that treats me like a queen but after such pain and sorrow how can you give them 100%?? Maybe time will tell..
  • Rose
    this poems is so sad, i love it though, it's so deep and touching, i feel like reaching out to her and giving her a hug.
  • Angela
    I can relate so much to this poem. I am myself going through the same. To know a man, can care as much as he has. Is wonderful. Thank you! You put words on screen for the way I feel in my heart.

    Can the feeling of love lost by a friend equally be shared? I know it can. This poem is great. True friends are ones that you can laugh AND cry with, sharing thier feelings.
