About the Poem

This poem was written from my heart. I wrote it because my boyfriend and I are going through hard times and I wanted him to know my feelings and what I wanted things to change. I also wrote this poem because expressing feelings in poetry is so much easier than just saying what you feel in a simple way. I hope that he will read this poem . . . and things between us will get better.


I wait by the phone everyday
But you never call
I get ready to go somewhere
But you never show up
I tell you important things
But you never listen
I say I love you
But you never answer
I write you mail
But you never respond
I ask if you love me, I ask if you care
But you never pay attention to me.

You make me feel all alone.
You make me feel unloved.
You make me feel like no one cares and no one ever will
How can you do that to someone you are supposed to love?
How can someone so sweet be so cruel?
How can I hate so many things you do but still love you so much?
Those are questions that will go unanswered forever
Because I can ask and ask but you will never respond.

This poem says everything about my relationship i have wit this guy He says he loves me it seems like he dont care This poem was very good
Amy I know how you feel there is a boy in my life that makes me feel the same. It seems he leaves me when I need him the most,I feel torninside it feels he leaves me nothing but lost inside him . I thought your poem was really wonderful and it was nice to find some one that feels the same. Amber
this poem is one of the best poems i ever read. this really reminds me of my ex boyfriend. i thank you for writting some thing that relates to my life,
An amazing poem of words so very true. I have felt that way many times as have others I am sure.
I like your poem I think is so true, i know some boys are like that but if you think you dont feel happy with him you should tell him the words
Intense emotions involved in writing this piece.
your poem is so true in me and my x-boyfriends case.we still tell eachother that we love eachother.but sometimes he acts kind of shady.he doesn't return calls,when i ask him how he feels about me he doesn't answer,he never returns love letters that i write to him,even though he tells me that he was feeling the letter
This is a great poem. It describes me and my ex-boyfriend, Whitney, so well. In the begining everything was great but then he never would listen or pay attention to anything i say.
