"You can always close a book, but you can never close the mind of a writer."


Take my broken heart,
and rip it from my chest.
Steal away my soul,
and finally put me to rest.

I dreamt about you day and night,
and I wanted you to be mine.
You watched me in my hardest days,
and sometimes you watched me shine.

Every time I saw you,
my heart would skip a beat.
Every time you said my name,
I would spring out of my seat.

I loved you with my heart and soul.
I loved you year after year.
But something always kept us apart:
our confusion, our chances, our fear.

But now there is no hope for us,
we are doomed to be apart.
Maybe I won't feel the pain
if you completely break my heart.


The author's comments:
Most of the time relationships grow from the innocence of a best friend. This is my poem explaining how it feels to realize that. This is also to express the awful truth when you discover that you can never be together.

Well written but a truly great poet can be strong and vulnerable. Poetry is not always about ryhming but the truth of one's heart.

There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say "Watch Me".

This is so true.

"Feeble tiny hands bound for greatness..." - Miracle, The Temper Trap

This is such a great poem. Not only does it apply to something that everyday teens can have, but it kind of puts a whole perspective on life in a nutshell. Things like this, love or not, are always going to happen in life and our feelings are really effected along the way. I'm sure a lot of people can relate to the feeling you perfectly capture. Awesome job!

You did great personaly i'm not old enough to date let alone BF/GF so i don't know quite what your talking about, I'm just a shadow. Quick thought shouldn't  sonnets be in Iambic Pentamater, its a pain but it's worth it. Again brillant emotion but make sure you keep the mechanics :)
