Better to Have Loved

Better to Have Loved

A Poem by Lydia Jamison

They say it is better to have loved,
Than never to have loved at all.
Well, I will take the path less traveled,
And not allow myself to fall.
My trust is broken,
My words remain unspoken,
And I can't help but to want to keep them that way.
My door is closed,
But I left the lock wide open.
I've never let anyone in,
And anyone is yet to ring.

Better to have loved,
Though I have never loved
And I feel fine.
Even though I love myself,
I can never say I've ever felt,
What people say will always be mine.
I don't need a man to keep me strong.
I promised myself I would fight on my own,
And while other girls
Insist on broken hearts,
I prefer to never go that far.
Better to have loved,
And be broken,
Than to never love at all.

So what if I'm impossible,
Why should you even care?
Don't make such assumptions
If I know you won't be there.
Abuse me with 'I love you',
Then say that I'm a fool,
When I choose not to follow,
Or become victim to you.
I've realized that I'm perfect,
And no thanks to affection.
I think I'm heading south of nowhere,
But maybe it's the right direction.

Better to have loved,
Though I have never loved
And I feel fine.
Even though I love myself,
I can never say I've ever felt,
What people say will always be mine.
I don't need a man to keep me strong.
I promised myself I would fight on my own,
And while other girls
Insist on broken hearts,
I prefer to never go that far.
Better to have loved,
And be broken,
Than to never love at all.

These people, they are talking,
To loud for me to hear.
They say that I'll be falling
If I don't love sometime this year.
Well, you see the leaves are coming down,
And I still stand on solid ground.
So go ahead and hurt yourself,
Throw yourself and run through hell,
I'll be alright.
Oh, I promise myself, I will be fine.

Better to have loved,
Though I have never loved
And I feel fine.
Even though I love myself,
I can never say I've ever felt,
What people say will always be mine.
I don't need a man to keep me strong.
I promised myself I would fight on my own,
And while other girls
Insist on broken hearts,
I prefer to never go that far.
Better to have loved,
Oh...

Better to have loved,
Though I have never loved
And I feel fine.
Even though I love myself,
I can never say I've ever felt,
What people say will always be mine.
I don't need a man to keep me strong.
I promised myself I would fight on my own,
And while other girls
Insist on broken hearts,
I prefer to never go that far.
Better to have loved,
And be broken,
Than to never love at all.

It's all a lie!
I'd rather die!
I will not cry!
Believe me!

Better to have loved,
And watch yourself fall.
Better to have loved,
And let go of it all.
Better to have loved,
And be broken...

This is a very building poem. Starts out kind of simple and sure of yourself and confident and stays that way through most of it untill the end, which sort of explodes. I love it. It is a BEAUTIFULLY well written poem, and i thank you for writing it. :) But love is worth it I promise. I know it doesn't look like it, and I'm not the one to talk, but love is one of the beost beuitful things you could ever imagine, and I'm not just saying that. It actuall is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.
