Poets are those who love,--who feel great truths, And tell them.

Unfinished Business

by Anonymous

take me as i am or watch me as i go,
i will go,
and you will never hear from me again,
because i am not the kind who waits for you to play with me,
i care far too much about my heart
i thought you knew I would always be there for you

right from the start
so why do i feel like you're using me up ?
Why did you have to drain my flame?
I know you're too ignorant though
and it doesn’t help for me to put blame.
but whenever you feel your ready,

you can come to me, yup that’s right,
i never really left.
that’s the magic of a guarded heart.
the love is guarded and always kept.


  1. Hello, I am publishing a book of poetry compilations from different teenage writers and was wondering if you would be interested in submitting an entry?

    1. thank you so much although it took me a year to get this.

  2. I really enjoyed this poem. I can also tell you that it was so deeply written from the heart that I can relate and fully understand. I think you should continue to keep writing and as you do, many will come to you for advice through your power of writing.

  3. I like this a lot!
    By the way, why aren't there new submissions? I think I would welcome some Valentines Day Poems and I have submitted one entry myself!

  4. This is a great poem. Lots of emotion. 2 thumbs up
