Past Love Poems

Updated on May 2, 2013

High School Poetry Continued

This is Part 2 of 2 for the poems I had written back in High School. If you haven't read part one and enjoy reading darker poetry (as that is what it is), you can follow the link at the bottom of the page or do so here. The poems in Part 1 are much longer in length. I saved part 2 for the shorter poems which are for the most part "Lighter".

Searching for something more

I'll fight for my country,

I would take a bullet for any American,

That gives me one more reason to die for you.


I hear nothing more than my own heartbeat and the sound of my breath whispering in the night...


I'll save you from falling miserably,

Close your eyes and take my hand.

We'll fly into the night sky;

and light it up with our hearts,

We can re-define love.

Plotting our lives through our souls;

and patiently waiting for its effect.

Has what we thought ended;

or has it just begun?

You've always been there for me,

In return I'll always be here for you.

I will always love you.

I let you go for an instant,

and watched you soar away.

You have your own wings now,

So fly into the hearts of others.

As you did mine.

Im Looking out alone once again,

Changed by your touch.

Know this for as long as you breath,

I Live Because of you.


Taking my pain away with each drop.

Stealing everything I have ever felt,

Like a river eroding the base of a mountain.

My tears rip at my heart,

Leaving scars that penetrate its existence.

Those who have felt the weight of life have dangled without hope,

Endless falling could ravage any spirit.


The pavement struck us both as we collided with the realities of the world.

I watched the tears fall upon her delicate cheek.

As I held her close to me I whispered,

"I love you" into her ear.

I let go for an instant that happen to last an eternity,

I may never forgive myself for what I did to cause so much pain.

True beauty will always lie with her; she’s better than what any one will ever say,

I hope she never forgets that...


Seeing your smile will brighten my day, with you nothing can stand in the way.

A Ray of light that makes me feel alright like a blanket in the winter night.

I wish to wipe your tears and be the one who fights all your fears. I want to borrow your heart and keep it from breaking apart. This is my love so take it and hold it like a dove.
