About the Poem
Seen through the eyes of a man who's discovered his love, yet only to find it is too late. He still loves, yet he can no longer have his lover. Therefore now that he is no more the fool by recognizing his devotion, he is left to love without receiving it in return.
by the chains of love's grip
- greatest gift,
fate's cruelest curse.
Wherefore do I weep
at knowing the joy,
at feeling the peace,
Wherefore do I weep
unable to complete ,
unknown the kiss,
Wherefore do I weep
at loving not living
seeing not touching
breathing not sharing
holding not loving?
because I, The Fool,
am no more?

Your poem, short as it is, overflows with touching sounds. I read it more than four times, trying to touch all the corners, but at the end I realised that this poem is unique and can mean a lot of things. poetry at it's best. the kind of poem that push you to think. and imagine. I like it.
because I lost the love of my life, So I can relate to this poem.

Beautiful yet sad. If I were a judge I'd give you top marks for this.
Rings very true. I liked it
Your poem was so very true and touching to me. Because, I have went though the same similar things and that really brought tears to my eyes when I read it. Because, of the simple fact that when things like that happen you really get a insit on how love can make you feel.
this is just the way i feel because i realized whom my soulmate was but years after i tore him apart. he moved on and i have now but knowin that i made the mistake i am reminded every day when i wake up so cold and alone!

I REALLY LIKED THE SENSE OF LOVE AND HE MADE ME REALLY FEEL HOW HE IS FEELING ABOUYTLOSING SOMEBODY AND NOT GETTING THEM BACK. EVERYONCE IN A WHILE I THINK IF PEOPLE READ THIS THEY WILL UNDERSTAND THE TRUE MEANING OF THIS POEM WROTE BY CHRISTOPHER
this is such a ice poem. i love it. it makes me think about me ex
That was the best poem I've ever read! It reminds me of someone who i love but doesn't know or cares.
Superb poem. It captured me, I truly feel that Christopher understands the frustration, and longing for unrequited love. I can't wait to read more of Christopher's work.
I like it alot!
This poem is short, simple and sweet and the reader or i should say my self did not have to go into a thinking mode to know what the writer was saying. In the end of it all I like this poem very much.
Beautiful poem- I know how it feels. but I have not lost faith in love.
The Poem was WOW. Sometimes how we feel is not appreciated and this poem describes the feeling one is left with after rejection. I am especially touched by the post of ANONYMOUS who said he/she is only 15 years old. I am a mom to twin boys. Get assured that I care.
This poem is very well written. It is so good a touching that it feels like the person who wrote it was describing an experienced emotion. I give it 5 stars
I love this poem. It really touches me.
i find myself thinking of the love i use 2 have and how much i was being adored. now i find myself alone with regrets. the person i love the most. doesnt love me back and has moved on. this poem said it all
It made me remember my past. even though it was painful experience, i thank you for making me feel that never ends
My boyfeind of almost 3 years recently died, this poem could alomost sum up the pain I feel every moment
i know what it is like to want something and yet be afriad to experience it. but you cant say you have lived unless you joined the fight of life and love
this is the best poem i ever heard.

I loved this poem not because it reminds me of a conversation I had with my lost love who said she was in love with me and stop sharing with and caring about me after our two years long intimacy.

this touched me. it reminds me of a breakup from 3 months ago that i still am not over. my friend and i decided to take it further. i wanted something he didn't. i lost that friend because of my stupidity. now i admit my feelings for him and he can't return them. the last stanza made me think of what i tried to tell him. keep it up. :) kaidemonback17
It's just so real. I really think it hits the spot that people who have loved and not been able to tell that love feel.

WELL, THERE IS NOT A VOTE COUNT, BUT IF THERE WAS A CHOICE BETWEEN 1 AND 10, HE WOULD DEFINITELY GET A 10. I KNOW HOW IT IS TO LOVE-GIVE MY HEART TO SOMEONE WHO WILL NOT DO THE SAME BACK. I ADMIRE YOU. MR. POET--NOT MANY MEN CAN PUT THOUGHTS INTO WORDS AS YOU HAVE. WONDERFUL. THANKS
it was a good poem
your poem is truly beautiful. it encompasses the human nature of the soul never being satisfied with what it has found only to realize later that fate and true love occur so rarely.
Its from the heart and nottins more touching than that.
i loved your poem. it reminds me of my self. i feel in love then left to love with out any in return.
This poem speaks to me, but not with words through mouths. through the speakers of my mind. I felt amplified as I read your poem, Chris, because, from writer to writer, I have wrote coutless others just like it about the same painful subject. I wish you luck on the long healing process, I am not there yet, but I hope you are.
your poem really showed what i was felling. it really opened up my heart to see that love can relly heart. i want to thank you for writing this. it really helped my depression and heart ache. i too loved someone and it hurted. thanks.
It was a really great poem and it really touched me.
Chris ur poem is lush,i luv it!1
I Loved this poem! It was a voice out of my oun heart. Thank You!
Absolutely how I feel. I wish people who you love could be kinder.
You did well
This poem is so what I'm feeling. I loved a man with all my heart and would have done anything for him. And in the end I just ended up getting hurt
I love ur poem it is very beautiful. It really touched me!
i loved your poem it's great.
Well written, and straight from the heart. what a great poet he is.
A very nice poem!
Passion is power, and you truly show the passion which radiate in your soul. My the love that you feel be your anchor.
The truth behind this poem is astonishing. Like many, i've made the biggest mistake of letting what felt like Real Love go. It's always so difficult thinking back about how i left the most amazing girl for another, thinking that it was a good decision, turned out to be the biggest mistake of my life. Now that i've realized this, it's too late, can't love her like i wanna.
I am gutted and I am a writer.but now my hand does not dance upon the page as it once did. I do not bleed ink. Christopher, your poem became my voice. I am so incredibly sad.
someone once loved me,true to say i never thought that anyone could.i loved this man greatly not the big things but the little things he did. i pushed him away,so he would come running back and that would prove that he loved me and i would feel secure again. one day i pushed him again.he never came back. i know true love lasts forever at first i felt it was unrequited otherwise he would of came back, but there is only so far you can go isn't there.i know love and the joy that goes with it.unfortunately i know the pain too. amazing poem you can tell the poet was in my situation.
That's what he did to me, it hurts to be taken for granted. Yet it hurts even more to know that he may feel it too, Like your poem says.
Thats beautiful! It describes how i feel perfectly.
this one is great..i just lost the love of my life and this poem means so much to me
I thought this poem was fasinating. It explains all the feelings I've had. and it's not every day you can relate to a poem like I did to this one. all I can say is you are an awsome writer and thank you for allowing us to read your work.
I think this is a really great poem its so true! hes got alot of talant :)
I'm not one to cry, but.... this one did it. Too late, sometimes that is the only thing that can make us face what we have done. This poem is absolutely beautiful. Thank you, Chris.
i thought that poem was very good. i think he has talent. i could feel what he was talking about.
man. that poem was rite on. this man nos what he's talkin bout. i'm feelin it all the way
I'm living the moment your poetry describes. I see no end in the same way. this is an infinite love I have for this person, yet we can never be. I find solace in knowing that I'm not the only one that would make this sacrifice of the heart in the name of the truest Love I'll ever know. Thank you. I shall be posting the words born of of that experience. words that were inspired by her. Thank you!
How true it is to love someone only to find the love is not shared or circumstances in life cannot permit it. The feelings of these lines are shared my many.
very moving, very beautiful, very sad
I really enjoyed this poem.
I understood everything and related to everything.good write
Fantastic ! Well Written. I'm impressed. You took what's in MY head and put it into words and I thank you for letting me read and enjoy it.
I understand this poem in great detail--It has been the way i feel for quite a while now. Great job Chris
this poem explains exactly how i feel
In one word...WOW!!...I was truly captivated by this amazing poem! The words flow with such ease. I'm breath-taken...WOW...What a beauty.
very sad, as i know this too! we are all fools when it comes to love.
i thought this poem was so meaningful and heartfelt
