"Don't gain the world and lose your soul....wisdom is better than silver or gold."

"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.

I love this poem!!! It's great!! You are very descriptive, and it all makes an image in my mind, a mind movie. I could really relate to it, but i think a lot of people could.  I don't know what else to say, I'm kind of speechless.

This was so interesting for me to read, I loved it! The emotion behind it is very authentic and raw, and that makes for some of the very greatest literature. It is also relatable for the meaning, and understandable. Thank you for sharing your work! im in a band and i wrote a song similar to this the other day called take this heart and sell it!
