My Boyfriend Left Me for a Younger Woman - a Poem About Break Up


I am always fascinated on the power of lyricism and poetry. This poem is inspired by stories about experiences at Silliman Bea

my boyfriend left me for a younger woman

my boyfriend left me for a younger woman

He loved me so much
But then, he suddenly left

We had an argument about her
But he insisted
She was just her friend
That Instagram photo meant nothing
He told me
I was just overreacting
I don’t need to be jealous
I was irrational on our arguments
But I was in love
I believed him

Our anniversary came
He was sweet
He bought me a nice ring
Take me to a restaurant to eat
The dinner was lovely
I told him that
Then we head home
And we made love

I felt his power inside me
He was so passionate
Like an angry beast
He lit my fire
In all the right places

I can still remember his face
I was on my back
His hands
Ran through my thighs
And I gave him
Everything I had

And now
I cry
I missed him
He did not even say goodbye
Because that night
When we made love
When he shook my stars
When he closed all scars
It was our last
Our last night together
Together as lovers

Because after that night
He was no longer the man I knew
He suddenly changed
He suddenly did not needed me

But at least he was brave enough
Brave enough to say it straight to my face
That we are over
That he lost his love for me
That he is in love with somebody else
Someone younger than me

She is 25
The youth is on her side
I’m 33
And I feel pretty
And I think I’m pretty
And my friends say I’m pretty
But my beauty is not what he needed

I do not understand why
He left without goodbye
I am kind
I am loving
I am caring
And I was taking good care of him

She doesn't even know how to cook
I saw it on her IG story
She is so clumsy and messy
I learned how to cook when I was 14
How could he left me for her

If you have seen him
My ex-boyfriend
Can you ask him why he left?
Can you ask him
Was it because I am over 30?
Is 33 too old for him
And he preferred someone younger
Someone named Jennifer?

Please tell him that I was ready
Ready for our commitment
I have prepared my I do
I have even rehearsed my walk
I was ready, I am ready

And now all I can do is cry

Because my boyfriend
My one true love
Left me
For a younger woman, and he is no longer at my side

Thank you Brenda for reading my poem.

It such a nice feeling when somebody leaves a comment on your work.

But I hope you will not be annoyed at me, I am actually a guy hehe. I am just trying out some new approaches to writing a poem.

We have this YouTube channel in the Philippines, called Raffy Tulfo in Action. I got the idea there.

Thanks again for reading my poem and have a great day.

Thank you so much for your comment Pam.

I am just writing all sorts of stuff here on Hubpages, and this type of poetry is not my usual form of writing, but I am thankful that you're able to feel the emotion behind the words.

And I am actually a guy hehe, I have never cheated on someone though, and writing this poem was also a bit of a challenge. Hopefully, you'd also appreciate my next poem about break up.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on November 27, 2020:

I feel your pain and heartbreak.

Most often it is when one does too much for a man. He feels pushed into a corner not able to decide what he wants...only seeing your desires which overwhelm him.

One day he will grow up and realize he lost the best woman.

Take care.

A lovely poem, but it is his loss. You sound like a loyal person who should be with someone who gives you the same. You deserve better and you will meet the right man to mend your broken heart.
