The Reason

The reason of breakup

I’m not Wounded by love

Rather, by the torment,

That comes next

When there’s no more.

When you said your goodbye_

A cold indifference filled your voice.

It shattered my heart

It killed me Inside,

You spoke aching words.

You Had is fallen out of love.

___Clairel Estevez

I gave you all

I gave you my life and my love

I gave you my soul,

You had an important role

In my life,

But, the minute you left me

I thought, this phase I could not strive

Don’t make things so complicated

Because I still love you

And yes I mean it!

You Were My Special One

It hurts that someone so special,

Leaves you and goes,

It hurts that someone special,

Everything he knows,

Still you chose the other way,

So, I don’t have, much to say,

Except from a final bye,

It will hurt me till time,

That you were mine!

Nothing is constant

Nothing is constant in life,

Not even love my friend,

Some people come in your life

Just to pretend,

They take away your love

They take away your dreams

They give you silent tears

With some silent screams

Nothing is constant in life

Not even love!

You Were My Special One

It hurts that someone so special,
Leaves you and goes,
It hurts that someone special,
Everything he knows,
Still you chose the other way,
So, I don’t have, much to say,
Except from a final bye,
It will hurt me till time,
That you were mine!

I loved you so much

I loved you from my heart
It was a beautiful start
Things were so warm,
Things were so bright,
So, why this ended on a fight,
I am left with silent tears
Looking back at some unknown fears
I am totally broken today,
I just don’t know what to say!

I Do Not Love Thee

I do not love thee!—no! I do not love thee!

And yet when thou art absent I am sad;

And envy even the bright blue sky above thee,

Whose quiet stars may see thee and be glad.

I do not love thee!—yet, I know not why,

Whate’er thou dost seems still well done, to me:

And often in my solitude I sigh

That those I do love are not more like thee!

___Caroline Norton

Never Give All The Heart

Never give all the heart, for love

Never Give All The Heart
Never Give All The Heart

Will hardly seem worth thinking of

To passionate women if it seem

Certain, and they never dream

That it fades out from kiss to kiss;

For everything that’s lovely is

But a brief, dreamy, kind delight.

O never give the heart outright,

For they, for all smooth lips can say,

Have given their hearts up to the play.

And who could play it well enough

If deaf and dumb and blind with love?

He that made this knows all the cost,

For he gave all his heart and lost.

___William Butler Yeats

I Lost It

You took my fears away
And made them true.
You took my love away
And ripped my heart out, too.
You took my laughter away,
And my happiness, too,
And let all my sadness
And tears get through.
The rest of me that was left
Also left with you.
I lost myself
When I lost you.

___Carrie Berry

How That You’re Gone

Now that you’re gone, I realize
How much you meant to me.
My loss is wide as a starless night sky,
And deep as a stormy sea.

I miss the comfort of your sweet love,
Your absolute devotion;
Now I’m a fountain of endless tears,
A pool of sad emotion.

They tell me I should move on with life,
That time will heal my pain;
I smile and nod and agree with them,
While I slowly go insane.

___Joanna Fuchs

He Is Hurting Too

He’s tired of the pain.
He’s tired of every lie.
He’s tired of the countless nights
When all he does is cry.

He’s pretending not to care.
He said that he is fine,
But really he is hoping
Someone will read his mind.

Everyone’s sad for her;
No one knows what he’s going through,
And not even his friends can see
That he is hurting too.

___Leah Williams

I’m Not Turning Back

Every time I would ask, you said I was tripping.
I trusted you boy, but now I am quitting.
You broke my heart, took it and tore it apart.
You promised to me never again.
But maybe it’d be better if we were just friends.
I never really had the proof.

But now it hurts cause I know the truth.
You make me promises that you didn’t keep.
But now it’s your time to moan and weep.
I stayed true and faithful to you.
Something you couldn’t.
I wanted to let go, but I just wouldn’t.
You said you were mining, evidently, you’re not.
She already told me what happened.
Yea that’s what I thought.
I knew you were playing, but I still loved you.
I had a lot of feelings so what could I do.

But now they are gone.. Who fault is that?
You took a knife and put it in my back.
You didn’t know what you had.
But now you don’t have it.
Isn’t that sad?
I loved you with all my heart and still do.
But how could you play me for a fool?
Baby, I trusted you, why did you do that?
But now I’m leaving, and I’m not turning back

___Angeline Richards

A New Beginning

Something happened to me when our relationship died,
Something happened to me right when we said goodbye.
I felt so different, I had no heart.
We had broken up before but I felt this was the end,
The end of ever being loved by him again.
What was I to do?
Without him I am so lost,
I feel that he should be paying the cost.
But he isn’t, I am.
I am afraid to love another,
But afraid I should not be,
For I will find another perfect for me.

___Gabrielle R. Laurenti

Break Up

I know your heart is saddened by being with me.
I know the pain you feel is also deep inside of me.
Our son was born with something we will never feel.
It hurts we never share the feeling.
We have a daughter who brightens up our day,
But if life were perfect, you’d be with me always.

___Paul J. Redmond

Pushed Away With Tears

“I’m not good enough
for you” he said.
With tears in his eyes.
“you put to much pressure on me,
I need to live my life.”

How horrible I felt,
So scared and small.
I loved him for him.
I felt so stupid and alone.

“I’m giving up now,
please try to understand”
“I loved you once but
Never again.”
I wanted to cry
But tears wouldn’t help.

“Please don’t leave me” I said.
Falling to my knees,
“I’m sorry for my mistake,
I’m sorry for everything!”

As the noise slowly died
Silence sipped in.
I could hear his footsteps,
Gently walk away.
“He’s gone..” I said,
I pushed him away.

___Elizabeth McCrorie

Now As I Look Back

As I walk by I, see you standing there,
She was giving me a long cold, uncomfortable stare.
I surrender the feeling you give me,
I walk away, but it’s you I can still see.
why can’t you just let me be,
leave me alone,
let me walk out the door,
causse I can’t look at you anymore,
I made I through
And now my life is bright without you.



What is this feeling I have?

I seem to love you

But other times I seem to loathe you

I can’t be without you

Or maybe just without anyone

I think about you all the time

But why do I have this feeling?

I long for your voice

And I would die to hear your laugh

But is this love

_____Gary R. Hess

The Wait

Or merely lust?

Time Clicks as I await

The hour ends before my take

Sitting, thinking, waiting; my mind escapes

The day grows old as night passes

Wolves crying, coyotes howling; anticipating

Watching, staring, seeing — nothing

Silence begins the day

as morning comes without notice

Tears begin to fall, slowly

The day moves on without hope

Wishing to be what is not to be

The sun moves to its peak

without a whisper or retreat

Time moving, but still empty

Stomach aching, curling

Still waiting

__Gary R. Hess

Lost Love

I loved you more than I have ever known

Those starry eyes

Those tender lips

You made my heart melt

Then boil into a roaring fire

I now know

What my eyes could not see

You are the only one that is for me

Many nights those tears flew

Being myself without anyone

Anyone to care about the thoughts

Looking at the sky and knowing

Many mistakes I had

Many mistakes I have had

___Gary R. Hess


I don’t really want to say goodbye

I don’t really want to leave you

But now I have to go away

Stay away from you forever

What we had was something special

Deep down from our hearts

But now I have to go away

And leave you from my heart

___Gary R. Hess

Disappearing Love

What happened to our love?

It used to be so bright

Loving, laughing, caring

Then soon caught the night

You were my one and only love

Cared for you too much

Then something happened

And slept with that man

You deceived me

I never felt so desperate

But I try to forgive you now

And try not to think about before

I love you so much

It just hurts to ponder now

Everything I have

Is because of you

Everything I bought

Was because of you

I just love you so much

I’m scared to lose you

___Gary R. Hess
