About the Poem

This poem was written because I feel that a person doesn't always explain how they feel when they are in a relationship. In this case I was the victim. So confused, and vulnerable.


Some days you seem so close
like you stand right before me
But then the next day you seem so far
like each other we can't see,
Each day is like a roller coaster
with my stomach turning upside down
You stand there looking
but yet you don't utter a sound,
I feel so confused and
my heart is being torn at its seams
And every night that I sleep
you seem to linger in my dreams,
Every time I look at you
I forget all my thoughts
And right then and there
it's you that my heart has sought,
Every time I hope
it turns into something bad
So for right now I'll stop thinking
And maybe things won't end up sad.

wow, i really love this poem. im so confused right now and this poem explains how i feel.
I love that poem. It's amazing how that can exactly pinpoint what I've been feeling for these past few months. I didn't realize other people felt the same as i have.
I love this poem. It has to relate to me by so much and it is about what im really going through right now
I loved your poem as it expresses so much of the feelings I am feeling right now in my own relationship. I look forward to reading other poems that you have written.
I like this poem alot. Relationships are so confusing, especially when you are with someone and the "title" of the relationship isn't ever determined. It's nice to see the feelings that Ican most certainly relate to be put into something concrete. Really great poem.
this poem is really cool
This is absolutely beautiful! It says exactly how I am feeling right now. Thanks for the great read.
this poem is a true one because coples don't relly express what they feel inside I love the poem.
I loved this poem, it tells a lot about how people feel in their love life. Most people can't say what they are feeling and this does it perectly!
This poem is awesome. That is exactly what I'm going through.
i have loved this guy and this poem has really helped me think through if he is really worth it. to people out there that are waiting for love or happiness to caome to u have to get into gear and do something about it. there are plenty of fish in the sea. but be careful. peace out!

this poem is great an amazing it shows how much did she care about him and thata's how i feel to
That was a very sweet poem. perfectly describes how many people feel in their love lives right now and in times to come. I normally do not vote and write comments unless it's something very good. You must be a very touched person. Hope things are good for you in your future. keep up the good work ^-^
This poem was wonderful. I loved how the author expressed her feelings in such a deep way that her emotions seemed almost mystical, yet understandable if you thought about it deeply enough. I am only 13 but her poem really inspired me and made me feel as if I've been here for centuries longer. as if her experience were my own.
I just feel like my boyfriend is never there when i need him. I wish that he will be there, but right now i feel confused.

AWESOME! Thats the first word that comes to mind after reading this poem, touches me close to home. I now know I'm not the only person that is "confused". Thanks keep up the excellent work! great job!
Reading the poem was a way of realizing that I wasn't the only person who felt this way. It's great to know that someone can come out and write how they feel. Awesome poem!

This is my favorite poem. It describes perfectly the thoughts going through my head when my boyfriend and I got together. I know that when I read it for the first time, I wish that I had written it. It is an excellent poem.
this is exactly how i felt when i felled in love with my first boyfriend at 13 but he never loved me did a great job
This was just a really good poem.
I felt that this poem hits very close to home for me. I found it enlightening and nothing short of the crule reality of this world. I to wrote a peom on cunfusion because my x-girlfriend whom I love so much is playing with my mind and I feel confusion is what a lot of people are feeling right now. I really enjoyed your poem and keep up the good work. Your words are a real insperation on life. friend poet, Myon Morgan M&M!
