The Two Words

Heaven knows
how my life had changed
since you came into my life


Yesterday was a nightmare
full of regrets and tears
with dark shadows
like hell


You are the reason
Why I smile
Why I hope
Why I love
Why I trust


Despite my past.


You always hold my hand
this promises security
in your arms
i’m always free


But these were all lies
as you say
“We’re through!”
to me.


I want to prove to all
Even without you
i can stand on my own
you see, I’m brave now, it’s true!


i know I’ll never be happy again
without you by my side
the things I love to do
will never be the same again.


But I could never insist you
to stay by my side
when your heart
doesn’t belong to me
anymore...


I smile even though I’m sad
i laugh even though my heart is breaking
just to hide
what I really feel inside


My tears won’t stop falling
as I say these
two painful words to you,


“YOU’RE FREE...”



...just because I know he's not worth my tears, doesn't mean I'm going to stop crying.

Ouch! that hurts. Losing someone you love can throw you into a phase of hopelessness. Words like move on, be strong become hollow. Only time can heal and even in such a case the scars remain. Will one become stronger or colder can't be said. Strong emotions are captured here. I could relate to it. Great poem. All the best.

I think many times we mourn the loss of what could have been, so that even though the person is gone there is still incredible pain for the future that never will be. You have captured this beautifully my dear; I feel your pain, have felt it in the past, and I send you a hug and well-wishes.

Thank you Billy.. so I did really captured his feelings. I wrote this one by a request of a friend to pen his feelings when his girlfriend broke up with him. (for he can't describe it, he said.)

Sad. If this about you, then One day someone who is deserving will be there and no longer will you have the need for any of those tears. You'll look back and laugh at what they lost. But breakups are like reopening a wound that was healed by the person that reopened it.. making for a very bitter taste, it's also like the grief of someone (including ourselves) dying, and we go through a period of just such feelings however long we need, or till that someone comes that was truly meant for us with whom to be.

Another poem that can actually bring emotion into the readers heart. Many poems cannot do this. That makes a huge difference between the people who write poems. You are one of the people who can write poems that give people emotions. That is a wonderful thing. Voted up.

When you lose someone you love, you never get over it. You just get used to it. Can I first just say, wonderful sub-title, so very true about getting used to it. i had a moment like this in my life, and for the longest time imagined how things could of been. You do a great job conveying themes that are relevant to your readers, and that will get you very far! :)

Voted up, awesome, beautiful and a share as well :)

Hi M. sometimes you have to let that someone you love go free, and if they come back to you than it was true love, and if they don't than you have lost nothing .

One day you will need to let all those feelings go,and move on because that someone is not coming back for you, but that's his lost not your's .

Beautifully written. Even though we love someone we know when its time to let go and set them free. Your friend will meet someone else one day who will love him truly and the pain of this love he has lost will just be a distant sad memory.

Would I be standing at the altar by her side?

Would her child be mine?

And I think that I've just seen

the life that could have been...

The life that should have been"

Bravo! You can make something truly beautiful with your pain. I, on the other hand, would have written a heavy metal song very much like the one Adam Sandler wrote for his ex in the movie The Wedding Singer. If you haven't watched that one, you should!

This happens to all of us. We all walk down that path sooner or later, and you're right, we cry even though we know that person doesn't deserve our tears.

"When you lose someone you love, you never get over it. You just get used to it". Very true, spy.

But all the same true love knows to let go too. The pain, the memories may dull but never go away.

Beautiful poem.

This is a powerful poem, Unknown. I really felt for you in this one and your emotions were clear as day and your tone was not a mystery. I really loved the quote at the bottom, well done. It's kinda say, but in a way it's uplifting. I got the impression you were going to recover from this. Always a pleasure reading your work. :)

bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 4 years ago from Central Florida

Spy, this poem is sadly beautiful. Your pain comes forth in each word. But, please my lady, don't say you'll never be happy again - you will! There is no "other" person on this earth who controls your happiness. You are such a beautiful woman, such a beautiful soul! Happiness must come from within and, when in doubt, remember God made you in His image. God is Love. If you never find a human mate who appreciates and loves you for who you are, you have not lost. Be who you are. Be proud. Love yourself. If there is someone out there worthy of you, God will bring you together.

I so love your soul. I so feel your pain. I so want to see your smile!

Your poems are filled with a great deal of passionate words for that good ole love connection, and that's what I like about them the most.

Love is a powerful compelling force field of attraction, and may even be that of repulsion at times.

I tend to think of it as a sort of bodily magnetic field, and you know you just inspired me to create a new hub that draws such a simile or analogy.

Thanks for the inspiration, you love is poring out onto the pages here. Awesome stuff!

Voted up up and away once again.

Fabulously expressed and very moving. Relationships are hard to develop, harder to master and hardest to relinquish. The emotional bond between two people can be intoxicating when balanced and heartbreaking when they're not!

I really liked how you put this together for someone else.

Well done!

I'd like for someone to give me the key. I've not yet found it necessary. I've tried hundreds of times, but I'm to the point in my life where I need to love myself. Aside from my son, no one seems to fit the bill and frankly, it no longer matters....

This beautiful poem applies to so many loving people who waste time on those people who just don't get it. Over the years I've discovered life is too short to waste on those who don't deserve all you have to offer. As life goes on and the pain lessens remember to look in the mirror and see the gift that you will give someone special someday. Remember YOU'RE FREE !!!

Born2Care, thank you so much. I did work out to capture his feelings, i've been there, witnessing every pain. that time, i am not yet inlove, not yet feel the ups and down of relationship..

Brave, thank you again..maybe the two words really did set him free afterall.

Jazzy, yeah..it hurts to be hurt but it really lessens the pain if you try to move on and just embrace whaetever the future holds for us. life is not permanent..
