I Love You From Afar

Make my heart ache …

Poetry cycle – My Teenage Years

Poetry I wrote in high school

I see you each day,

I smile at you

and your eyes looking at me,

make my heart ache,

knowing that I can only –

love you from afar.

 

I touched your hand the other day,

my foolish heart burst in happiness.

I smiled at you and you smiled back.

How do I tell you –

I love you from afar?

 

Today I foolishly waited for you by the door,

you passed by holding hands with another girl.

I saw the love in your eyes,

my heart broke from –

loving you afar.

      Glad it brought back memories. That was me always carrying my heart on my sleeve and a pen and notepad jotting down all of my joys and heartaches.

    Memories of high school loves … often heart breaking. This is such a sweet and melancholy poem, Rasma. Nice work.

      Thank you Phyllis. It even amazed me at how deep my emotions ran at that time. I will post some more teen poems.

    Like Phyllis and Tony mentioned, this reminded me of a sad high school romance, when those feelings start to become real and you can feel your heart slightly break. I wish i knew then what i know now. Good piece Rasma.~Paul

    Thank you Paul. It was my way of getting through the emotions and heartbreaks of my teen years. Better in poetry than bottling it all up.
