I've looked my whole life
For Someone like you~
Someone so loving
So caring and true.

Now that I found you
I'm so confused~
As my feelings grow stronger
I don't know what to do.

I have given you my word
My love for you is true~
But I can't help but wonder
If you have those feelings too.

You say that you do
and That I'm the only one~
But then something happened
I thought you turned around to run.

You assured me of your love
Said it always would be~
But you never called
Like you promised me.

It's been three weeks
Since I last heard from you~
Should I worry?
Did something happen to you?

What should I think?
What should I do?
Maybe my love
Really wasn't meant for you.

Where ever you are
What ever you're doing~
I hope you know...
It's my day that's ruined!

This is so sad, Mary. Such a pity that people hurt each other like this. Same thing happened to my daughter once. Don't be confused. Just move on. You deserve much better than to be treated like this.

I'm so sorry. I have felt the same. Seems as if you wrote this poem from my past thoughts. I have found that if you set your sites in a new direction, you will soon forget. Great work, I love it.

Mary

This was a saddening poem (well written, but sad).  I can understand how things may have gone astray - Sometimes, a man will say something because it makes the woman glad to hear it, such as "I love you."  Sometimes, those words mean a lot more to a woman than they often do to a man when they are first used in a relationship.  I learned that women don't take those words lightly.  If more men understood that, there would be a lot less pain in the world.

I think, my dear, that you should forget all about this guy, go out for a night on the town with your closest friends, and spend the night forgetting- you never know, you might meet someone who knows how to use the telephone, and if not, you'll feel alot stronger inside knowing you're not just sitting at home waiting.  Hope everything works out for you hun!!

A very sad poem but so true at times.  One uplifting to think about is that you do know how to Love.  Keep that in mind............Bojopy

LngJhnAg...Thank you for your wonderful words of wisdom.  I'll keep them in mind for the future!  

Devina...I want to thank you also for replying.  I think maybe I just might take your advice.  Thanks!  

Bojopy...Thank you as well.  Some times we need someone to point out the "good" in sad situations...Thanks!!

A very poignant peice Mary.  Well done.

I'd echo the other sentiments expressed here in regards to this particular individual, but, I'd also add -- we all get hurt and we all hurt others at some point in time.  Remember this event in your encounters my dear.

reminds me of the short story "Sixteen" by Maureen Daly. "It was all so lovely" -- anyway, took out my ancient journal and reminisce when I was sixteen. hehehe

Great poem. took me way back. Look forward to reading more of your work.

Hi Mary, I think if you value him you will give him some time to feel his feelings and to decide if he also values you.  You know what I'm saying...just let it happen naturally. However, I do understand when he doesn't contact you that is a strong message in itself.  The issues of rejection and so forth. It doesn't give much hope for the future.  Only you know how far your love will reach.   I'm going thru a friendship right now and I keep finding myself trying to make the person like me and I know I have to let them like me.  She wants to be my friend so now I must accept her desire to be her friend or I could kiss her goodbye because my desire to be romantic has not been accepted.  Just my opinion and subject to change.(laugh)  I love icon 64.   James
