About the Poem

This poem is about two people breaking up but one still has feelings for the other and what the words "I love you" mean.

Love

You said the words I love you,
But it is obvious things have changed.
I said the words I love you,
And my feelings are still the same.
You said I'll love you forever,
But forever wasn't long enough.
I said I'll love you always,
And I'll mean it forever.
But I can not imply to you
What that means,
'Cause your version of Forever
Isn't what it seems,
And my version of Always
Seems like an unrealistic dream.

It was a great poem

My girlfriend just broke up with me, and we had made the promises mentioned in the poem. I told her I'd love her forever and I meant it, but obviously she didn't. Your poem puts into words a lot of what I am feeling, and that's why I like it.

This just reflects what I am going through,I feel so lost coz he says he loves me but everything else points to something very different. Couldn't have said it in better words.

Wonderful and so touching. I loved a girl with all my heart and she pledged me her "Love for Eternity". But her Eternity meant "Till it was convenient for her" and I was her hit and run till she found some one ! Great poem - brings memories and tears; and a valuable lesson not to take "words" at face value !
Jessica

Amazing. I just spent ten months being told that I would be loved forever. was told that the last on a Wed. Two days later, she called to say good bye. I never thought forever would be so short

I truly agree with this poem... easy to say but they never wanted to do what they say...
Michelle
I loved your poem. You have a great way of expressing your feelings.
alicia
This POEM was nice, i like it alot, cause one must learn to show there true feelings, and not FAKE , thus, i think that if one heart permits that he really love someone else then say it, but if he/she doesnt then dont say it unless it is true,.,, nice POEM>>..congrats :)
crystal
for days i was unable to find the exact words. thnx anna
jaclyn
Loved your poem.Some many men make promise they can't keep.
Victoria
This poem is one of my favourites so far, as it speaks exactly of my own experiences, therefore touches that empty space within my heart.
Cassie
I love your poem, even though i dont believe a thing such as love exists, at least TRUE love! but oh well incredibly beautiful!! Love, Cassie
jennifer

Gina
I totally identified with this poem. I loved it.
tooba
you poem was realy great...easy to identify to.
johnette
I really enjoyed your poem. This is one of the few poems I can truelly relate to. My boyfriend, well ex told me the exact same things. We were together 8 long months, off and on for 2 1/2 years. I thought we were meant to be and he promised that he loved me and would never leave me and that he never has and never will cheat on me. At one time I almost believed everything he told me. I guess it's true what they say, "Almost doesn't count."
Marius
I really love this poem! I started crying right after I read it. My girl-friend just broke up with me and I feel just as what is says in the poem :(
