About the Poem

This poem is about someone that has loved another person, even though it was wrong in the eyes of society. She has done what she thought she must, even though it caused her great heartache in the end. And after all is done and said, she still loves this man.

Just trying to get past this moment, and understand all of it a little better.

What Do They Know

I face the world with a smile, no one knows what is hid inside.
They see only happiness, they cant see the tears I've cried.
When I am alone I hurt, because here I do it well.
In front of all the watchful eyes my heaven turns to hell.
The judge and jury awaits me, everyone has a say.
In a life that hangs suspended for yet another day.
Who are they to judge if what I have done is right or wrong?
In the end I gave him up, but inside still sing his song.
I don't know how to find the strength I thought I had.
If only I could play tough it wouldn't be so bad.
They say that life goes on and someday I'll smile again.
But, how do they know my pain without being where I've been?
I've traveled so far from home, and can't find my way back.
Somewhere along the way I must have jumped the track.
I saw him just today and his smile is still the same.
He looked at me so sweetly, but never spoke my name.
I wonder if he remembers me, It hasn't been that long.
He may have forgotten me, but I still sing his song.

this poem is really touching it makes you think
damien
I have read many poems on this site and others alike and i find this one to be expecially good because of the raw emotion behind it. you can tell that it came from the heart. in my opinion the best poetry is written in times of extreme emotion,good or bad. anyone can put words on a page but emotion makes it special.
Samuel
This poem happened to my life. I know what you feel. It really hurts. So Great!

Rosa
Wow, this poem really took my breath away. I feel just like that right now. It was uplifting regardless of the pain going on inside. Sometimes pain is the only thing that gets you going, and the more you try to forget.

Donna
i love this one. it's awesome,and i can remember feeling like this some 2 years ago. it's funny(or not so funny)how you never forget a feeling like being rejected,but sometimes you lie to yourself and start to believe you're perfectly fine(then you remember):/
Chelsey

Emmalee
This is a true poem it has the feelings people do feel in life with the pressure and haters but never let the one you love go it hurts to bad to think that was your true love and you just let him go because of the people around you.
Hannah
I really like this poem. I have just gone through this exact thing and it helped me realize i am not alone. I dont know if the situations were the same but they seem as if they are. I wish that no one will ever have to feel the pain as when you stand in court, trying to stand up for the one that has helped you the most.

I can fully understand the pain that involes a break-up like this. I am going through it right now. I love this man and he loves me but at this point in time we are not healthy for each other and we know it and so does everyone around us.
kimberly

Lindsey
This is the most amazing touching poem i have ever read. Thank you so much.
daniel
I am not a girl, but this is a really good poem. It it the best one I have heard in a really long time, because it relates to me and my ex. We were together for 18 months. No-one really wanted us together, but when does it matter what everybody else thinks. As long as two people care for each other that deeply, they should try and make it work. I broke it off with her and would do almost anything to have her back in my arms. I am 4 years older than her, but I loved her with every bit of my heart.
Stefani
I absolutely loved this poem. it touched me in so many ways. it is a sunject everybody has is or will feel in their life and it really lets you know that you are not the only feeling heartbroken. i cant say that so many poems or song lyrics or anything touches my heart very easily but this most definetly does. it brought tears to my eyes and i love the way it is written. and the person that wrote this poem is extremely talented and i hope they continue to write such beautiful poetry.
Renea
This poem really hit home for me,i just broke up with my boyfriend of 2 years because my family got to me so bad,but we promised to get back together when im 18,but this poem is so great it made me cry keep up the good work Honey!
jesse
i love this poem. it reminds me of the girl i lost and how everyone thinks its no big deal. she was my everything. i want to thank you for finding the right words and writing them so now not only do you help me but you help other people who are at a loss of words thank you
Emotional

LaSharia

stasia

brooke
you cant help who you love. love is like a book you can't judge it by it cover. i love your poem. it reminds me of someone im very close with. no one wanted to see me and him together but we wouldn't let them stop us their all use to it now.
brittany
i love this poem! you did a great job and i can relate to what your saying. keep up the good work!
emma
this poem was very appropriate for a very hurting heart
ashley
that last bit. about 'I saw him today' or something like that. god, I went through that on friday. It really got me. Really, what do people know about how you feel? Let it out! Admit to being hurt. thats what I'm learning to do. Show the world, and tell them to shut it! Cry if you want. Its how you feel, no one should ever be made to feel ashamed of how they feel.
shelia
This poem is "OutStanding" If you were in a relationship or had to give up a child or a pet it hits you right in the heart.
kent
Very nice, it touched me. I'm going through that right now. hard to accept but hey, keep up the good work! You have talent I don't have.
tess
i love this poem. i can relate o so well.
stefany
4 the brokenheart's club
Nicole
This poem is good, specially today. I'm 18 and was dating someone younger. He was 15. His dad (his guardian) was the one who got us together. We had to decide to call it quits because 1) distance and 2) Too many people looked down on it right now. When they dropped me off at my house and he told me bye I wanted to cry so hard, but I had the best time in my life with him. Age really don't matter to a point.
johana
this poem is so SAD but at the same time it nice it vErY GoOd!
Sam
I love this peom because what you have written is what I feel and go through
Toni
This poem was GREAT! It sounded alot like my situation.
keegan
Wow i really like that poem, it made me remember of my ex boyfriend that i broke up with thinking i was strong, and i realized i was wrong. I miss him so much he would play his guitar for me and i miss that your poem helped me feel not alone. thank you stranger.
simsim
I wish I can express such feelings in a well-written poetry. Lost love's spark remains poiling in broken hearts accross the years, hoping that someday some deserving one can lite it up again. A very heart-touching poem.
teresa
i love it sooooooooooooooooo much, its the best one ive read!
Brenda C.
This touched me because I went through the same thing. This was written in a manner that was so easy to identify with. When love is gone it doesn't mean it stops. When you love another you wnat to talk about it even when you shouldn't, because when it doesn't work people do just as this poem describes. LOVED IT!
Diana
This poem is GREAT! I am the one going through the break-up of my daughter and her boyfriend. It hurts me the most than it does her. I do not know, I guess everything goes haywire when you are the Mom! Great poem!
kaaveryputhra
This poem has reli touched my heart as it depicts how I am feeling now. I am being pressured to break up with the guy whom I love so much bcoz I am afraid its against my conservative family background. Its reli sad. But I am leaving it to God,if he is reli my meant for me, I dun think anything will stand in between us. Love is the greatest strength ever. Even if I have to break up with him sumday, I'll love this guy till my last breath since he lives in my heart
Brittany
This poem made my day! me and my bf were over as of today! and this really got to me! guess what that meanss hehe ITS AMAZINGGG everything that was sad in this poem was like how i felt. almost like it was there for me yaknow! XOXOXOXO

Janice
This is a great poem. I think you were speaking from my heart. Nine years ago I fell in love with someone my parents didn't like. They kept us apart. After all these years, a husband, and two wonderful kids, I'm still in love with him. I think of him and what could have been every day. I've read this poem over and over, and I cry every time. Keep up the good work.

mimi
*sob*. that was a really, REALLY great poem. tears were falling from my eyes when i first read it coz i can totally relate to what the poem is implying. i "found" the poem the day my heart was "broken". and in a way the poem helped me. it said the things i wanted to say. i jst want to say thanks. cause in a way it has helped me cope with the situation.
krystal

Maria
This poem was really good, I was able to relate to this poem and I want to let you know that your not the only one that has gone throgh alot in life.
Megan
OMG, this poem is AMAZING! I am only 14 but when i was 13 i read this poem and it really helped me, i felt like i was the only one that was going through something like this, society can be a pain in the butt, but we have to deal with it, even if we love the person unconditionaly, it doesnt matter what color,shape or size, we dont choose who we love, ive had to learn just to trust in god to get me though this, even when you think its impossible to move on, and you may never stop loving that person, but some things we have no control over.
Jenny

Melissa
This poem touched me a lot. I have gone through the same things in my life that are in this poems and it helps to know someone else has too. Yet i am only 13 I know how it feels to want someone so bad and not be able to have them. I know what it feels like when all your friends are made at you for something that they know nothing about. This poem helps me understand that. This poem is awesome and has helped me get through bad times.

I cried like hell going over this poem. It relates so well with my life and my feelings. Justwhen I thot i was losing grip on my life, I met this person thru chat and we became very close. In fact we fell in love with each other, in spite of the fact that he is only half my age. Nothing seemed to matter to him or me ,for we were both so happy with each other. This world will only blame me,but like the poet says who r they to judge me?Is loving a person such a great sin?Now I see he is trying to move away from me. (maybe he has realised he is making a mistake). He has a full life ahead of him and I should not try to tie him down. I love him too much for that. So,let him be free and like in the poem"I will still sing his song. " This is a great piece of work. Keep it up!

I smile alot and many said that it's the best feature in me. But they don't know my deep sorrows within me. Maybe the poet who wrote this poem knows. Maybe she went through the same ordeal as i did

I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed the last line of the poem. I recently ended a relationship and I still sing her song, and wonder if she sings mine. She looks the same but has moved on. Thanks for the insite.
Kay
This poem has made me feel like that i am not the only one who feels like that. I really like how the poem puts that society cant accept her feelings. I just got out of a relationship like this one.
Bunny

Rafia

Kevon
This poem has touch me in some many ways, I just can't explain it! My ex-girlfriend broke up about a year now but, I find out that: I know what love is and I know what love is not! When I had a year ago, That Was LOVE! Thank YOU!
Jessica
I know exactly how this person feels, I was in love with a guy 6 yrs older than me
jen
this poem is very very good when i read it,it brought tears to my eyes because I thought about my ex it fit so well with how i feel!
ashlee
this poem expressed only a portion of what i feel. but the way you were able to say it was pin point. i cant be with my one true love because of society. his parents think that i am too young and my friends and family think he isnt good enough. but what are we to do?. it is impossible to go behind there backs. but knowing that someone else feels the same pain and helplesness as i is close to comforting.
deann
Your poem was really nice and sad but also sweet.
Amanda
I thought this poem was very very good. IT reminded me how I felt when my Ex-boyfriend dumped me. This poem made me feel the way I use to feel. That was a hard job to do too. I think that this poem was wonderful.

Leo
I know how this hurts... my woman is under the same pressure. We have broken up, gotten back, broken up, gotten back, and are almost breaking up again because of them... I know how this hurts :(
Christina
I didn't think it was possible to describe how I felt in such words. You wrote exactly what I was feeling inside. Why is society so judgemental? Why can't you love who you love without being judged? Everyday I have to wear my smile with tears running inside and I am glad to see you too staying strong.
Stacy
Your poem hit me in so many ways. It is so frustrating listening to people tell you, you'll get over it soon enough, not knowing what you have been through and how you feel. No one will know until there in your shoes, and your poem really expresses that.
Kim
I loved this poem it reminds me of me and my ex but it was only my mom who didn't approve and till this day he is still in my heart Very well written
Lekresha

Thuy
I LOVE THIS POEM!! it's so touching on how the person feels inside. I've been through EXACTLY what this poems says.
Eddie
I truely know how you feel. I am going through it now. IT IS HELL. But i think if i love her so much i set her free then if she comes back to me she will not leave me again. But if she doesnt then it was not meant to be. It helps me to think that way. Just makes it easier to go day by day thinking that way. Good job.
Kris

Uncertainty
Tima You will smile again. I can relate to your poem because I gave someone up that I loved a lot because I cared to much about what other people would think and right now tears still fall from my eyes when I think of what could have been. This may be something that haunts you for the rest of your life because his face stll haunts me. Remember it's ok to cry because tears cleanse the soul
