About the Poem

Far too many times we fall in love with someone who doesn't love us back. And as much as you love & care for them, there is nothing you can do to change the way they feel. There is no greater hurt then the one of rejection. You put your heart and soul on the line only to have it torn apart. It is a hurt that only time can heal.

I was put in this exact situation a little less then 2 years ago and the pain has still not completely vanished. I loved this person more than words could ever explain. He was the world to me, there was nothing I wouldn't have done for him. And even though he's been gone quite a long time, my heart still hurts when I see him. And writing about my hurt is the one way I can truly express my feelings.

I only hope that this poem can try to ease your pain, if something like this has happened to you. And one piece of advice I give to those who are hurting from rejection as I am, never give up hope. Hope is the key to everything. As long as you have faith in yourself, everything will turn out ok in the end. That I can promise you.

One Day You'll See

The first time I saw you,
I knew you were the one.
There was no question in my mind,
after having that much fun.

There's just something about you,
that I've never found before.
And now that we're good friends,
I find myself wanting more.

I never thought it possible,
to care for one so much.
But everyday that passes,
I long to feel your touch.

To look into your eyes,
would make my day complete,
cause every time you look at me,
my heart just skips a beat.

Everything I'd wished for,
every dream I'd hope come true,
I never thought would happen,
until the day that I met you.

I know that your not ready,
for the kind of commitment that I am,
but for you I'd wait forever,
there's nothing I can't stand.

Although it hurts to know,
that you don't feel the same as me,
hopefully one day you'll realize,
one day you'll wake up and see.

I was in this situation where my good guy friend fell in love with me but i didn't feel the same. I haven't seen him or properly talked to him in 2 years since.

I couldn't understand really how it feels to be rejected by someone that doesn't love you back. My ex-byfriend has fallen in love with me but i dont have the same feelings. This poem shows me what he's going through because we just broke up and i told him why and he was in so much pain. I just didn't understand. Were friends now and hes hoping that my feelings for him will be more than friendship but im not sure if they really will. What a great poem.

melissa
This poem really hit me in the heart i have been in the same friendship for 9 years and i am still trying to get this point across to the man i love
Monica
OMG!When I was reading this poem, I thought to myself holy cow this sounds like you and your friend. The thing is me and him are friends with benefits,best friends, he is my strenght,he is my shoulder, he keeps me sane. See I have bipolar and when i'm having my bad days he's the only one to keep me calm. He goes out of his way for me sometimes. I told him i was falling in love and he said I'd say i'd get into a relationship with you but you know how that goes. so i can relate to this poem. GREAT JOB!
Grant
A beautiful poem. I'm not really one for poetry, my friend actually asked me to look some up for him. But when I read this it really struck a cord in my heart. Once again. beautiful.
marie

Cameshia
I really want to thank you so much for thinking of something so sweet. It's like everything I wanted to tell this guy you took the words right out of my mouth and made this nice poem. I can't thank you enough I feel so much better knowning that someone feels and think the same as me. I love the poem.
Steve
Just two words: Great Poem! I can relate to it and it tells about the exact thing I am going through right now. It could not be closer to the truth for me. But I am just going to keep the faith. Again, Great Poem

Romeo5
Great poem, i love the first 3 paragraphs.
lyndsay
Your poem is wonderful and it really explains how your fear for rejection feels. I am in a similar postion with my best friend, but I have not told him how I feel due to the fear of him not feeling that type of love I have for him back. One day I hope to tell him because the pain of regret of not telling the person how you feel is much worse.
Sania
Your poem left me speechless. I write myself but thank you for putting my thoughts into the beautiful words.
kelli
I love this poem, not only cuz I can relate to it. but because its the truth. It hurts when you love someone and they don't feel the same bout you!

To be a friend of the one you love is so frustrating. They smile and see you happily, but inside you slowly die within a grins embrace. Hope for better, hop for more. To do any less means you must examine why you don't seem worthy.
