Her Lost Love

Her Lost Love


To lose someone who you thought you

would spend the rest of your life with is

heartbreaking.

We all have ups and downs in a

relationship, I know I too have

experienced it. How unfair to

experience this especially at

the beginning of a new year.

This has happened recently to a

friend of mine and I tried to comfort

her as best as I could.

I hope this poem will help her in

just a small way.


Her Lost Love

Lost is the feeling of his tender touch

Words are all she has and memories to hold

How can there be truth in this world of deception

Knowing the difference between lies and truth


She feels a chill go down her spine

As the dream becomes reality

All the hopes and trust have gone

You will stay where you belong


In a cocoon hidden away

Wrapped contentedly and there you will stay

With thoughts and dreams yet fulfilled

Returning to reality


Life is cruel to those who love

Who have lost and cannot gain true love

Let us seek the reasons for

The hurt and loss you experience more


The years have gone and left their toll

But there will be more to seek the truth

We love and bear all kinds of strength

To continue forward on this path


We seek solace in our own domain

Caring and sharing, no one’s to blame

But our thoughts can be trained to

To begin once again


To fulfil our dreams when we least expect

Believe and achieve, we will know best

To begin again on this journey of life

Experience the wonders of sacrifice

I see a new side of you, Acaetnna, a directness and more opinionated tone. You sound intellectual, but without a loss of compassion and conviction.

For each time we are knocked down, we must again rise and brush off the dust. Excellent work!

You are a very thoughtful person and friend to write this. Love can be so hard on us but like they say, "it's better to have loved and lost then to never have loved."

It sure hurts though. Hope she will find her true love and look back at this and see why it ended.

The wonderful, and also the sad, thing is that we usually do move on and love again. But the pain at the very beginning is so hard to bear... she is lucky to have a friend like you who cares enough.

..yes the Website Examiner is very perceptive with this one ....I too see a new found maturity in your work - and you are still my favorite 'love doctor' - Love is a noble and sacred place to be because you make it so!

And perhaps as love is found and then sometimes love is lost - there is a little more complexity in your writing because life is experience - and often we see things, places and people in a different light as we get older!

....well my love is not lost on you my friend - it only grows in respect for you as a writer each passing day - and also as my friend!

The queen of love poems strikes again. Very nicely done. This resonates with heartache and loss but also promises that time will heal and once again your friend will be uplifted. She's lucky to have a friend such as you to compose something like this. I've been in that position of heartache before and my friends say "Uh, let's grab a beer, dude." Well, I guess everyone helps in their own way. Cheers and well done. Peace.

Life is a lot of work. What is it that gives us the strength to continue when we are tired and burned out? Sometimes an inspirational idea can help us renew ourselves and be filled with strength to fulfill our life's purpose. Inspiration comes in many forms. However, the root of all inspiration is the idea that our lives are meaningful. Inspiration is knowing that what I do matters deeply to the universe. When you have the feeling that your actions are meaningful, you will become filled with strength and vigor to fulfill your life's purpose.

I agree with my esteemed colleagues, the tone of your writing has taken on a deeper and richer aura.

richtwf 5 years ago

Losing someone we love is always heart-breaking at anytime but to lose love at any special time in the year like the beginning of a new year is an even greater burden to bear and requires more effort to keep our heads above water. One of the sad life events is to lose love but we must muster the strength to carry on and know that things happen for a reason. Only in hindsight will we know and until that time becomes apparent we must do our best to remain strong. Easier said than done but try we must and with the help of supportive friends and family we can regain the strength to live our lives fully again.


Elefanza profile image

Elefanza 5 years ago from Somewhere in My Brain

I know how hard it was when my mom lost her true love. She found the strength to move on and eventually found another love, but the beginning was hard and painful for her. I know everyone tells you to move on and the reality is that life moves you on anyway, but I don't think the pain ever really goes away. You just wait for time to dull it until it's gone.

I am sorry that your friend has to experience such loss though. She is incredibly lucky to have someone who has had a similar experience and believes she has the strength to carry on. Beautiful poem, by the way. Kept me thinking the whole time. Can't wait to read more of your stuff!

So sad to lose the person you put so much trust, faith and respect into. No time of year is a good time to lose love. I pray that your friend moves forward with the kindest, sweetest memories and help from a loyal friend like yourself.

We all need comfort and no better than to receive it from a loyal close friend. Let her know that love can be found again, we all have to go through hurts and disappointments to find our one and only true soul mate.

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

Thank you Rosie, I am a firm believer in everything happening for a reason. When we lose our love it feels like the end of the world, but often after the hurt and pain we find the courage to move on. I firmly believe that there is a special love out there for each and every one of us. The challenge some people have is that they find someone already in a relationship and wish to destroy it in order to make themselves find happiness. In my opinion that is unforgivable. Thank you so much for your comment.

Dear Acaetnna, I thought I'd take the liberty of leaving the 100th comment on this hub, as I suspect I also was the first to comment. You are indeed a compassionate and caring individual. If one has experienced a rough patch, what better way to make lemonade out of lemons than by helping others? Suddenly, what once felt like weakness becomes strength. In this way, the torch of human knowledge passes from person to person. Not only can you write, you also have a good heart and sharp mind. Thank you, W.E.

To have a friend like you is something special. Your friend is very lucky. We hubbers are sad and yet happy. Sad that we only know you through a picture of a young and beautiful smiling woman, but happy that we have come to love you and your work through HP. Don't ever stop. LOL

Nice piece I like your style... I seem to rhyme a lot but yours depicted emotion and was dare i say "catchy" with out the need for rhythm I wish to try a similar(in style) maybe you can criticize it for me

Thank you X-Dplus I would be more than happy to critic your work, not that I am any expert. I am just finding my feet myself.

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

Thank you Ubanichijioke, you are correct. Life is indeed harsh to those who love, especially when that love is not completely returned.

Chuck Bluestein 5 years ago from Morristown, AZ, USA

Life may appear to be harsh, but if you understand the purpose of life then it is not harsh. If the purpose of life is to die, then there is something terribly wrong. But life teaches you with only one motivation-- so you can feel perfect peace and endless love.

Now it appears to be simple. When you fall in love, it is great. When you lose someone then it is terrible. So birth is celebrated and death is mourned. But the ultimate cause of death is birth. The ultimate cause of sadness of losing someone comes from loving someone. If you can follow the sadnesss back to where it comes from, you see that it comes from the same place that the love comes from.

And that source where all these emotions come from, is more wonderful than anything that you can feel. Socrates lived hundreds of years before Jesus. He said "Know thyself!" What is this self that he is talking about? He taught that man is really an immortal soul and this is the most important thing in life. The soul is not born and does not die. It just changes.

The other face of love is pain, I don't say hate, because when we are in love we welcome pain.


acaetnna profile image

acaetnna 5 years ago from Guildford Author

Vinaya Ghimire, do we really welcome pain when we are in love? I don't really agree, my friend suffered pain and I don't think she enjoyed it. Thank you for visiting this poem and making a comment, it was very much appreciated.

This is a good poem for those who have suffered from lost dreams and a broken heart. In the moment it may seem unbearable, but in the end it is up to the one who's living it, to learn to let go and realize maybe, despite all the pain and sorrow, there is a better tomorrow. : ) We cannot make someone like us, let alone love us. But we can learn from the lesson and realize, maybe there is someone out there who is much better for us. Loved this spin on your poetry. Great job, helping out a friend.

acaetnna 3 years ago from Guildford Author

Wow thank you SO VERY MUCH Dreamseeker. I get the feeling you completely understand. No indeed we cannot make some one like us, let alone love us. It is such a special chemistry when two people become one! Thank you once again Dreamseeker.

How crazy love can be. One person may love someone and the other person may not.They may have truly loved each other at one time now their hearts have grown apart. Those who find love that lasts are proof love is worth it. Loved your poem so true and powerful.
