"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.

It's not about success; it's about significance.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Wow, this was very moving.  The feelings you describe are so real and honest.  "Maybe I won't feel the pain if you completely break my heart" hit me the hardest of all.  You write incredibly gripping poetry. Keep it up! :)
