Why are you so different?
You're not who you used to be
And why am I so lonely,
When you're right infront of me?
Something isn't right,
I can see it in your eyes
I'm just trying to find
A truth behind the lies
You act like we're so close
But we couldn't be more far apart
And right now I can't handle
Someone playing with my heart
Tell me that I'm dreaming,
Tell me our love's still strong,
Tell me you're not leaving,
Please tell me that I'm wrong
Tell me that everything
Is going to be just fine
Tell me you love me
And you'll always be mine
Constantly, we're fighting
It gets worse everyday
And I don't want to stay
Just to watch you slip away
I only want to make you smile
But I only make you frown
I just want to make you happy
Seems all I do is bring you down
I've never felt so far away from you
And I need you here so bad
But I feel like we've already lost
Everything we ever had
Please tell me that I'm dreaming,
Tell me our love's still true,
Tell me you're not leaving,
I'd give up anything but you
But I don't know you anymore
You're not who you used to be
How can I miss you so much
When you're right here with me?
I've never been
This scared before
And I can't take this
We fight, we try,
We scream, we cry,
We fake, we lie,
We say goodbye
Then you wrap your arms around me
And you look into my eyes
You tell me that you love me
And we both apologize
Then we pretend
That everything is ok
And it is, at least
For the rest of the day
The last time we did this
Was yesterday
And we said things would
Never be this way
But tomorrow we'll do it
All over again
And right now it's the worst
It's ever been
Remember when we first met?
Remember our first kiss?
Remember those first couple years?
They weren't anything like this
I keep telling myself,
It isn't true
But deep down, I know

I'm losing you...
I wrote this a few months ago....

I still feel the same

I am wondering how you are now.. and if you still feel the same.. did it work out, did you find someone more suited for you?

The poem was very moving..

Hey, I haven't been on in forever, and just saw this comment now. Thanks very much! Things never did work out with us, we broke up about a year later.

You're poem is just a beautiful art that represents the worth in love but it's also so true.
Love isn't eternal, and it could be hard to keep on first love in your life

This is so beautiful :D
I've never been in a situation like this, but this poem really made me understand how it feels.
You're a great poet

I just stumbled across this poem, it was in my favs for a few years now.

At that time I loved the way you've put your feelings on the paper and managed to really make other people get a glimpse of what you've been experiencing.

Today when I read it again I could finally understand what you were talking about, I finally feel probably the exact same way you used to feel when you wrote it.

It makes me cry.

It also comforts me,
knowing that I'm not the only one who's ever felt this way.

Such powerful piece.

You're an amazing writer. This poem brough tears to my eyes.
knuggi Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
i dont want it to end like this... but what if love is meant to die once? do we have any influence? can we keep the love - the happiness - just stuck in place? nailed to a person? can you ever hold it when it is meant to fly away?

i dont think so.

but i didnt give up fighting yet.
moro003 Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist

muntadrox Featured By Owner May 5, 2009
This is so touching. Been reading this poem regularly for the last 8 months, each time felt as powerful as on first reading.
It catched me each time...
Well, about now the moment of truth has come for me - the end of that poem becomes real.

johnrichards679 Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2008
This reduced me to tears - I don't cry easily, but this touched me very deeply.

This was how it was... I could have been the one the poem was written for, but then again, so could she...
PerfumeRose Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2008
So many horrific cliches... And I hate giving bad reviews. But at least I can tell you actually feel this way.

mredhawk Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2008
Your poetry is amazing. But one comment I do have is It gets worse everyday
And I don't want to stay
Just to watch you slip away
is a little choppy. I mean your poem has a PERFECT rhythm to it until this part. But other than that I really like the poem
avatarv2 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2008
simply awesome... so deep and charged with feelings it made me sad
DerKleineFreak Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2008
