It's not about success; it's about significance.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

When I’m about to break, I run to you
When I’ve made a mistake, I confide in you

When I’m sick of the world, I let you know
When I’ve fallen apart, you make me whole

When I see your face, my heart skips a beat
When I’m in your embrace, I feel so complete

When I hear your voice, I lose my focus
Forget the other boys; you’re the only one I notice

When my days are dark, I look at you
When my nights are cold, I dream of you

When I hurt inside, you remove the pain
There’s just something about you that keeps me sane

When I dance with you, I’m filled with smite
When I’m kissing you, I know I’ve got it right

When I’m all alone, I think of you
When we’re on the phone, I laugh with you

When I want to cry, you wipe away my tears
When I’m afraid to try, you take away my fears

When I just can’t breathe, I long for you
When I feel so weak, I find strength in you

When you say my name, I feel so secure
I’m in love with you, babe; of this, I’m sure

When I’m close to you, the stars are aligned
You’re the greatest thing I’ve ever had to call mine

The author's comments:
I WAS writing this in honor of my one-year anniversary with my boyfriend, which would have been August 25th, 2010. Unfortunately, he broke up with me 6 days prior to. Despite my broken heart, I finished the poem, because he deserves some recognition for being so amazing to me.

Quotations Form the beginning,
to the end,
My heart will beat for you.
And when it stops,
The pain will stop,
...The sorrow will stop,
The love will stop,
But the hurting will begin,

This is an amazing poem. I admire the fact that you finished it even in a time where it was probably the hardest. When i read it i felt like i knew exactly what you were feelings. Great poem :)

I'm short on time, so I'll quickly say this: this is a very touching poem and I admire you for not feeling resentment toward you boyfriend for breaking up with you. It's very well written.
