1. A Love That Is Not Mine By Bensan

You were so afraid that you unfriended me,
And I asked you why and you avoided me.
It seems you are so lost of your feelings for me,
That you doubted if you still loved me.

Would you think I would cry for you till I die,
If I have to lose you because I know you are not mine.
As I watch your lips lie,
I saw the love that is in your eye that is not mine.

I wish you the best and of happiness,
As I let your hand slip out of my hand.
I would not hold you back and fight,
Because it’s useless to fight for a love that is not mine.
If love was cruel and unjust,

I should not have let you walk away in my life.
But I believe love is an act of the Divine,
So I let go of you and save my heart and mind.

2. Am I Worthy By Siyabonnga Sathekge

Your beauty makes me scared,
Your beauty makes me doubt myself.
It makes me continue to lie to myself,
Am I worthy,
That question will last forever in me.

Am I worthy of being your friend,
I no longer know where I stand,
I hope you understand,
We can’t compare,
You are beautiful,
Look what I am.

Are we friends?
Or is it just my imagination,
I feel like I no longer get your attention,
Maybe to you, I’m just a distraction,
Am I worthy,
My sincere thoughts just destroyed my vision.

No matter how hard I try,
No matter how hard I try to make your face dry,
I’m the one who got to cry,
Because all I was created for,
Will be left in this dirty humanity.

3. Distant Lover By F. Hilton

“ Surprisingly, I have not heard your voice.
Just like you, I know it will be rare.
Deep inside your whispers, I want to hear.
Each time I want to you by my side,
I try to think hard about how you would sound like.

There is something I cannot fathom,
And it is in me.
It is the feeling I got for you.
Through my words, I try to let you know.
It is unmeasurable and undeniable.

I will always have your best interest at heart,
Even though we are far apart.
Sincerely, love is the only way you can pay,
But that is not possible, since you are far away.

I wish to hold you in my arms,
And let you hear my heart beating for you.
I know we will meet
No matter what it takes.
Just hold on; love me from far away.
I will do the same,
Hoping for that lucky day.”

4. Fight Love By Mary France Garcia

Wondering alone in a peaceful place,
Thinking about those memories,
At first, it was happiness,
Then, suddenly turned into sadness.

Our love is slowly fading,
Is it just me who’s now still loving?
My love gives me a clue for something,
If I’d still hold on or stop fighting.

We always have issues,
It leads our relationship in chaos.
Issues that make us hate each other,
That makes us not to be together.

What just happened to us?
Do you still want us to last?
Or do you want us to be just a past?
Now I want this to ask you,

Do I still have to fight for you?
Or is it time for me to let go?
Please, give me a clue.

5. Forever Love By JaK Jones

Forever and always I would love you,
I would hold you dear in my heart forever.
Keeping the box shut so I won’t lose you,
Forever and ever I would stay by you.

From your first sun rays,
To the last sunset, I would stand by you.
To make sure you are guided with intuition,
Forever and always I would kiss you cheeks,
Reassuring you of the times to come,
Letting you know that this world isn’t your home.
That you have a better one up above.

Don’t hate me if I leave for a day,
For I won’t be here forever.
Don’t shed a tear, for I’ll always be right by you,
In spirit and physical.

But always have in mind that one day,
On the day I finish my fight of faith.
I would go to see the maker,
Unless he wants me here till we all go.
Then I would hug you till the times are gone,
Forever and always, I would be in your heart.

6. Goodbye My Love By Benji B

Those days were days of happiness.
Days that will stay in our memoir,
But now this is the days of calamity,
Wheres happiness has faded away.

A pain that surrenders a healthy heart.
Days where it’s hard to tackle this pain,
A time where to say Goodbye.

Days where tantrums are nor longer short but lengthy.
Indeed those days were the best, but now tearful.
It’s hard to let you go.
It’s hard for me when seeing you vanishing in my heart.
It’s hard to say Goodbye,
And it will be hard for me not seeing you around.

The journey that we have was exciting,
but this one will be tedious,
because I will be alone by myself.
I still remember those days.
Days of a happy couple, but nowadays of tears.

Days of anger.
Days of anxiety.
And days of anxious.
I still remember those thousands smiles and kisses,
but now I am left with memories.
Goodbye, My Love.

7. Waiting Love By G. Berlin

I’ve been having a hard time lately.
But thankfully, l made it through.
I know, I haven’t been fun to be around,
I’m so sorry that I’ve been neglecting you.

So, I’m going to take this moment,
to make something clear,
I don’t know what I’d do if,
for whatever reason, you weren’t here.

I know I can be difficult at times,
I know, I’m no walk in the park.
I’m so grateful for all your love and support,
You are forever inside my heart.

It is all too obvious,
any fool could see.
I need you,
More than you need me,
You are my soulmate,
We were meant for one another.

In my heart and my life,
There shall be no other.
I’m grateful for you, baby.
And the memories we’ve made,
You could’ve walked away long ago,
I’m so thankful that you stayed.

Nothing has ever felt so good,
nothings ever felt so right.
Oh, baby, don’t you know.
I’ve waited for you all my life.

8. Dear Love By Stiff Bowman

How powerful are you?
It’s up to you,
To tell me the truth,
For you, don’t care about growth.

Young men in despair to die,
Due to untrue love and lie,
Their love elongate,
But difficult to forget,
When their love was in blossom,
It is mushrooming from the bottom.

You force youths to misbehave,
Indulging in things that are not of their level,
Unfortunately, they discover,
That they’ve started to suffer,
From unknown diseases,
Their immunity starts to decrease.

How powerful are you?
It’s up to you to tell,
To person boy or girl,
What makes them share ideas,
Making them love dears.

9. Broken Love By Donlucid

I can’t brag about love,
This thing hurt dearly.
You’d think you’re loved deadly,
While feelings ain’t mutual.

Convincing heart to be suicidal.
I can’t brag about being loved.
It makes no sense any more,
Exchanging people like treasure.

Soaking pillow with tears every night,
Yet them sleeping with no fright.
Waking up with mammoth vibe,
Whist you having cold vibe.

Showing no sign of caring,
Yet saying “I love you”.
What’s love without care?
Or am I nut love needs no care?
Then tell me what love is?
When tears are what you receive.

Pouring you with depression,
Then send you to a health institution.
What a funny way of expressing love.

I can’t brag about love.
While wasting my time crying,
Crying for the non-caring soul.
In public cheering you like they care.
Privately treating you as stature.

I can’t brag about love,
Had to go to shrink.
As my heart was starting to shrink,
I am slimming like I’m on substance.

I can’t brag about love,
Got myself typing a suicidal letter,
The motive behind it one word “Her”.

I can’t brag about love,
I almost stole my life,
For someone who ain’t my wife.
Ouch! Well, you won’t hear it, but I am broken!
I can’t brag about love!

10. Missing Days By De Jones

I’ll never forget that summer
we spent up on my grandfather’s farm.
I don’t think I’ll ever forget
those nights we spent in each other’s arms.
Laying in the bed of my Chevy.
Counting stars and sharing a kiss.

It would take you hours to pick just one,
We would hold hands and make a wish.
You’d wish for the summer to never end,
I admit I’d want for the same thing too.
Only one made that summer special.
And that particular thing could only be you.
Staring at all those stars, I knew,
That you and I were meant to be.

You were the only one I trusted,
I knew you’d always be there for me.
I will never forget our very first night,
We made love to the sound of pouring rain.
I remember staring into your eyes.
knowing my love for you would never change

I can’t help miss those summer days
whenever I visit my grandfather’s farm.
I don’t miss the day we said goodbye,
and you there, softly crying in my arms.
The summer was officially over,
And it was time for you to get on home.
We held each other extra tight.

We promised to write, promised to phone.
I’ll never forget that one summer.
No matter how much time passes by.
I’ll never stop searching for you.
I will keep searching until the day I die.

11. The Silence of the Night

In the silence of the night,
I hear the echoes of our fight.
The stars, dim with sorrow’s light,
Reflect the void you left in flight.

Whispers of what was so bright,
Now shadows, out of sight.
Tears mingle with the lunar glow,
A sorrow only the night will know.

12. Autumn’s Farewell

Leaves fall, a slow, sad ballet,
Colors of joy now fading away.
Each one, a memory, a part of us,
Drifting to the ground without fuss.

Autumn whispers a chilling goodbye,
Under the sorrowful, grey sky.
In every leaf, a story untold,
A piece of warmth lost to the cold.

13. Unspoken Echoes

Words left unspoken, a heavy heart’s token,
Lies in the silence, profound and unbroken.
The space between us grows ever so wide,
With each unsaid word, a piece of us died.

Echoes of laughter, now ghosts in the air,
Haunt the empty spaces of despair.
A chasm of words, never to be heard,
In the quiet, our love became blurred.

14. Shadow’s Embrace

Long shadows cast by the setting sun,
Mark the end of what had begun.
In their length, I find my solitude,
Embracing the dusk, my heart subdued.

Every shadow, a story untold,
Of dreams young and passions old.
As darkness embraces the light of day,
In the shadows, my hopes fray.

15. Rain’s Sorrow

Rain against the window, a steady, mournful tune,
Each drop carries a memory, under the waning moon.
They speak of days filled with laughter, now so aloof,
Echoing the silent truth, our love’s disproof.

With every droplet that falls, a piece of us washes away,
Leaving behind the remnants of a brighter day.
Yet in this sorrowful melody, there’s a strange kind of peace,
A cleansing of the soul, a quiet release.

16. The Fading Light

As the candle flickers, its final, desperate fight,
The room grows darker, surrendering to the night.
The wax, once so sturdy, now puddles in despair,
Reflecting how our love melted into the air.

What was once a beacon of hope, bright and bold,
Is now just a memory, in the dark and cold.
As the last flame dances, then quietly dies,
So too, the light of our love fades from our eyes.

17. Torn Pages

Our story, once written on pages so fair,
Now torn and scattered, lost in despair.
Each word we wrote with love’s tender care,
Now lies forgotten, stripped bare.

The chapters we dreamed, now never to be,
Leaving our book an incomplete symphony.
As ink fades from the page, so does our tale,
A love once vibrant, now painfully stale.

18. Echoes of Goodbye

The echo of your goodbye, reverberates through the night,
A soundless chasm, where once was light.
Each memory, a sharp, relentless sting,
Of what was once an unbreakable ring.

The void you left, vast and deep,
In its darkness, my heart weeps.
Goodbyes linger in the air, a cruel, unfading cry,
Leaving behind echoes of a love that had to die.

19. Winter’s Grip

In winter’s grip, the world turns cold and gray,
The vibrant hues of life fade away.
So too did the warmth of your embrace,
Leaving behind an empty space.

Frost covers the ground like a shroud,
Silencing the laughter that once was loud.
Each snowflake, a tear from the sky,
Mourning the love that had to die.

20. Whispered Regrets

Regrets whispered to the midnight air,
Carrying the weight of a love now rare.
Words unspoken, a heavy chain,
Binding the heart to a lingering pain.

The echoes of our past, hauntingly near,
A symphony of sorrow, only I can hear.
In the silence of the night, I find,
The whispered regrets of a love left behind.

21. Shadows of Our Dance

We danced in the shadows, away from the light,
Our steps in harmony, our hearts taking flight.
But shadows grow longer as the day turns to night,
And in their darkness, we lost our sight.

Now, where once we danced, only shadows remain,
A memory of rhythm, a phantom pain.
The music has faded, the dance floor bare,
Leaving only the shadows of a love we once shared.

22. The Last Bloom

The last bloom withers in the fall’s chill grasp,
A symbol of our love’s final gasp.
Once radiant, with colors so bright,
Now faded, under the weight of night.

Each petal that falls, a tear shed,
For words of love left unsaid.
As the last bloom bows its head in defeat,
Our love’s cycle is finally complete.

23. The Silent Sea

Our love, a silent sea, once filled with song,
Now quiet, the melodies long gone.
Waves of emotion that once crashed ashore,
Have receded, leaving an empty core.

The tides of affection that once rose so high,
Now ebb away, under a somber sky.
In the stillness of the sea, I find,
A reflection of the love we left behind.

24. Echoes in the Hall

Echoes in the hall, footsteps of the past,
A love that we thought would forever last.
Each echo, a reminder of what has been,
A haunting melody, unseen.

The laughter that once filled the air,
Now silent, a testament to the care
That once bound us, heart to heart,
Before our worlds drifted apart.

25. Beneath the Willow

Beneath the willow, we whispered dreams,
In the shade, the world unseen.
But dreams, like leaves, fall to the ground,
Scattered, in silence, they’re bound.

The willow weeps, its tears unseen,
Mourning the love that could have been.
Beneath its boughs, I stand alone,
Dreams whispered, now fully grown.

26. The Stars’ Sigh

The stars sigh in the night, a celestial frown,
Witness to the love that we’ve torn down.
Each twinkle, a memory of nights spent,
Under their gaze, where our promises went.

Now, their light seems distant, cold,
A reflection of a story old.
In their sigh, I hear a song,
Of a love that once was strong.

27. Veil of Mist

A veil of mist, the morning wears,
Hiding the depth of my despair.
Just as the sun fails to break through,
Your warmth fades, in the dew.

Each droplet, a memory slipping away,
Trying to hold on, yet unable to stay.
In the mist, our love’s silhouette,
A reminder of the sun that has set.

28. The Garden of Yesterday

In the garden of yesterday, we stroll no more,
Paths now overgrown, our love the lore.
Flowers of passion, wilted, lay at our feet,
Petals of promises, once oh so sweet.

The fragrance of memories still lingers in air,
A testament to a love that was rare.
But gardens untended, succumb to decay,
Echoing the love that has faded away.

29. Rivers of Time

Rivers of time, relentless in flow,
Carry away the love we used to know.
Waters once clear, now muddied with pain,
Echoing the tears, like endless rain.

On its banks, I stand, watching love’s demise,
As what once was, before me lies.
The current strong, with force it takes,
Our castle of dreams, now in its wakes.

30. Constellations of the Heart

In the night sky, our constellations drift apart,
Once aligned, now maps of a broken heart.
Stars that guided us, now lost in space,
Each a memory, a vanished trace.

Though apart, their light still reaches me,
Across the void, your face I see.
In the constellations of the heart,
Our love’s story, a celestial art.

5 Famous Short Sad Poems

1. “Alone” by Edgar Allan Poe

From childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were—I have not seen
As others saw—I could not bring
My passions from a common spring—
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow—I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone—
And all I lov’d—I lov’d alone.

2. “Nothing Gold Can Stay” by Robert Frost

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

3. “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T.S. Eliot

I have seen the moment of my greatness flicker,
And I have seen the eternal Footman hold my coat, and snicker,
And in short, I was afraid.

4. “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe

But we loved with a love that was more than love—
I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven
Coveted her and me.

5. “She Walks in Beauty” by Lord Byron

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
