I come to you, and we embrace. We
converse and we smile. But I refuse to
reveal my true feelings , for it is not my
We speak about our classes, our assignments
and such. But only one thing is on my mind,
how I long for you so much.
I allow my self a moment, to let my emotions
subside, I will not show you how I feel for you.
I am too strong, I have too much pride.
I try to keep a staight face, to seem undaunted.
But in actuality I am huanted, haunted! For you
are all I ever wanted. But You and I can never be.
I cry silent cries as I am forced to watch you
walk away with him, and away from me.

The author's comments:
This poem tells the story of when I had to watch a former girlfriend walk away with another guy just after our break up. This depicts how we somtimes must watch other walk away with the one we love, and also more symbolically, how we must watch other live our dreams or aspirations.

I hate having to watch someone who was once in love with me, hold on to another girl. It's a really hard thing. Great poem.
