I was loved, but am forgotten
My name lies dusty with misuse
But like the old mail or battered guantlet
I must stay hard--and never soften

You might not think of me, and often
It might be as if I never were
But here I lie, if you should want for
A sword to wield and shield to fasten

I'll be your charm from things that frighten
I'll be your desperate midnight escape
But when that click hangs me up, I'll know
I was loved, but am forgotten

I'm new to this forum--but I wanted to try it out. Never done anything like this before, and it's kind of scary throwing yourself out there for everyone to see. But here goes.

It's the end of my first week abroad in London and I can't help but feel rather lost. I've made new friends and have plenty to keep me busy, but, when it's late at night, my heart invariably wanders.

This one is about that ex-girlfriend who never talks to you anymore, unless she needs someone to comfort her or give her advice. And, though you don't feel the same way for her anymore, you know you'll always be there for her, no matter if she won't give you the time of day. It hurts and it's probably unhealthy--but I know i'll keep doing it.

Anyone else do this? Or am I just a dupe?

Caring is a personally

Welcome to Pip!
it was a heartfelt write, and I enjoyed it very much. I understand what that feels like, to always be the one there for the other, but it's not my case, it's a friend.

I look forward to reading more from you!

Dear Joe,

What a wonderful poem to mark your entry. In the future, you may want to consider several other poetry venues, as Feelings is designated more as a discussion venue. However, since you have already started a discussion beneath the poem, please know that there is no harm, no foul. Just an expression of sharing with you the fact that quite a lot of us know exactly what you are going through. It takes time to grow, and you are on the right track.

Had you placed this in the poetry forums, I could have sent you a very special greeting. As it is, you  will simply have to imagine a huge hug!

Write on!
