I?ll hold back my tears

As I know I can?t have you
with me

I?ll try to sleep tonight

But what?s the point?

When I wake up nothing will
have changed.


I?ll be sad tonight

And probably tomorrow too

I?ll put on an act though

To try to keep a straight
face around you

I know you won?t sense my


I?ll think of you tonight

It?s so hard to not cry

Heartbreak feels so low

I?ll try to forget my sorrow

As I know you won?t think of


I?ll see the stars tonight

And watch them twinkle in
the charcoal sky

If the universe is infinite

Then I?ll look for a
parallel world

Where you and me are


And I?ll just wish I was

    lovely poem, i can really relate, as i sit at work wondering what she is doing now… how she is feeling, if she really knows how i feel, secretly hoping she is feeling the same, because if she is… then i know theres hope… she\’s probably not… – great poem…. it helps a little.

  36. Staalkoppieon 05 Dec 2007 at 7:52 am

    It\’s so applicable to everyone who\’s ever loved and lost.I love the way you captured that hurt,when one is alone….it\’s usually when it hurts most,,,when your stuck with only your thoughts as company.

  37. anonon 05 Dec 2007 at 7:19 pm

    this is exactly how i feel, the man i love has been with my best friend for over a year now and ive loved him ever since before that. and she has no idea… neither does he. i just have to put up with seeing them together and pretend i\’m fine with it, and i have to lie to him everyday because i cant tell him just how much he means to me.
    youre not alone.

  38. kiarraon 18 Dec 2007 at 8:36 pm

    this poem is so great but it seems to be hard when you dont have the person you want i guess u have to wait for that real shot of love

  39. meon 08 May 2008 at 12:21 pm

    This poem is my favorite

  40. jasonon 04 Jul 2008 at 5:03 am

    this explains the exact night i had tonight. and how i feel. is there another poem to help move on?

  41. Hollyon 09 Aug 2008 at 8:18 am

    This is brilliant because all the other words i tryed to say to him couldnt explain how i actually felt when i wanted the words to mean so much more.

    Best poem i\’ve ever read.
    *wipes tear*

    This poem. .. I don\’t have words to describe it, I am touched. . . But I only have to say . . .That you all are so lucky for having that chance to be with that person, I mean , that you can see them, laugh with them, even touch them. . .And you should cry, yes cry if its hard, because you gave everything to be with them , but it\’s just not enough. . but you should be thankefull just to see that person smill even if you can\’t feel him or her.. .. I, I only cry because his gone forever . . :sigh

    Where you and “I’ are together. Not you and “me.” Other than that – great poem.
