The Lost Time

November 12, 2008
By Adam Wehrend, Raleigh, NC

I feel so much,
So much pain and regret,
So much waste of time
And so much of a fret
I think of the days I spent,
The time I spent,
The sorrow I've gone through,
All to get over the pain of you

If only I could get over these feelings
And just be a friend,
But that all depends,
On you and your feelings
The frustration that lies,
Lies through my bones,
And my inner soul,
That lives within you,
But will not come out
The desperate attempts to get through,
To get through to you,
And your inner thoughts

But you see,
The inner thoughts and feelings
That lie within you but,
Won't seep through
The exterior walls
Onto the outside world
Just let me know,
Your true feelings,
You can tell me
I'm not afraid,
I just can't lose you
From my life,
And the love that I feel for you
Hurts me so deeply.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem when my heart was broken for the first time. I felt like no one would ever complete me except for this person. I felt so bad and so heart-broken for so long and all that I would do was cry. I hope that my poem will help all of you who are having the same problem. This piece has inspired me to try to get the rest of my work published. It has also helped me to see that there are plenty of other people out there and that there isn't just going to be one person I fall in love with, there will be many. It helped me to put an end to my misery.
