Have you ever been in love?

Recently while on Facebook I came across a poem written by Natalie Anguine. It dealt with the matter of being in love and how it can hurt. Give it a  read and share your feedback…

Natalie Anguine - poet

Have you ever fallen in love, but know they didn’t care?
Have you ever felt like crying, but knew it would get you nowhere?
Have you ever watched them walk away, not wanting them to go?
And whispered, “I love you” softly… not wanting them to know?
You cried all night in misery and almost went insane,
There’s nothing in this world that causes so much pain.
If I could choose between death and love, I think I’d rather die.
Love is fun, it hurts too much and the price you pay is high.
So, I say, don’t fall in love, you’ll be hurt before it’s through.
You see my friend, I ought to know, I fell in love too.

  1. This poem is the truth. Been there, and know I will be there again, but I can’t let it scare me away from never trying love again.


  2. I can relate to this poem. But at this same time, i don’t think one should give up on love. Each relationship is a lesson, ‘what does not kill you, makes you stronger’.
