Move on-Poem

You were exchanging vows with the one you love

While I stood there fighting back the tears,

Fighting back the urge to get on my knees

And beg you to stop this hurt, this pain you were causing me.

I still wanted to hear you say-You love me and only me.

It felt as if a dagger was being run through my heart Time & again.

I woke up from that nightmare screaming out your name.

It was just a dream Yet I could feel the pain physically,

Like it had all really happened.

Its high time I led this madness, this insanity end.

Its hard to smile when I'm going through hell.

It kills me, kills me to love You,

When You love someone else..!

I'm done with this pain, I'm done with you,

I can't move on but I'll have to.

I can't imagine life without You,

Without your memories Or without this pain.

But I guess untill I let go- I'll never know

How its gonna be to stop my dreams

From calling out your name!

I don't know Why its so hard to move on,

Even when all you ever do is make me cry.

I don't know how excruciating the process of letting go will be

But I guess I'll just have to try.,,,

I know its now time to accept the fact

That You are not coming back.

If You had to, you would've done it long back.

I know its now time to put you out of my mind.

If I've to get over you I must stop being blind.

I must get out of this darkness and go in pursuit of light.

I've to destroy your memories even if I had to put up a fight.

I know i'll have to be patient, I'll have to be strong.

Its excruciating yet I have to move on.

For you are no longer my world to which I had once belonged.

To love someone that does not love you in return is truly a grevious pain we have all endured. Nevertheless, rise up, let the world see the beauty you are and True Love will stand by your side, forevermore.

Such truth in your words. Love can be painful until you meet the right one. Great writing.

One person can have such a powerful emotional hold on those who have loved them that letting go becomes a long and draining ordeal.I hope you find true peace and happiness

So true Escribir... Sometimes the bond we share with that one person is more powerful than anyother pull we've ever felt.. When the gravitational pull seems to be emitting from that one person, letting go n moving on is certainly an excruciating process..

Thanks for reading :)

That's such a sad situation to be in. I really felt like I understood the feelings involved. A very good sad love poem.
