love lost

quotations about lost love, unrequited love, breaking up



Music I heard with you was more than music,
And bread I broke with you was more than bread.
Now that I am without you, all is so desolate;
And all that once was so beautiful is dead.
- - - - Conrad Aiken "Bread and Music"

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.
- - - - W. H. Auden

The night has a thousand eyes,
And the day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies,
With the dying sun.

The mind has a thousand eyes,
And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies,
When love is done.
- - - - Francis W. Bourdillon "Light"

Had we never loved so kindly,
Had we never loved so blindly,
Never met - or never parted,
We had never been broken-hearted.
- - - - Robert Burns "Ae Fond Kiss"

In secret we met -
In silence I grieve,
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee? -
With silence and tears.
- - - - George Gordon, Lord Byron "When We Two Parted"

When you're away, I'm restless, lonely,
Wretched, bored, dejected; only
Here's the rub, my darling dear,
I feel the same when you are here.
- - - - Samuel Hoffenstein

I shall go the way of the open sea,
To the lands I knew before you came,
And the cool ocean breezes shall blow from me
The memory of your name.
- - - - Laurence Hope (Adela Florence Nicolson)

If you said good-bye to me tonight,
There would still be music left to write.
- - - - Billy Joel "The Longest Time"

The adoration of his heart had been to her only as the perfume of a wild flower, which she had carelessly crushed with her foot in passing.
- - - - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The greatest tragedy of life is not that men perish, but that they cease to love.
- - - - W. Somerset Maugham

After all my erstwhile dear, my no longer cherished;
Need we say it was not love, just because it perished?
- - - - Edna St. Vincent Millay

It's not love's going hurts my days,
But that it went in little ways.
- - - - Edna St. Vincent Millay

Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!
I miss him in the weeping of the rain;
I want him at the shrinking of the tide;
The old snows melt from every mountain-side,
And last year's leaves are smoke in every lane;
But last year's bitter loving must remain
Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide.
There are a hundred places where I fear
To go, -- so with his memory they brim.
And entering with relief some quiet place
Where never fell his boot or shone his face
I say, "There is no memory of him here!"
And so stand stricken, so remembering him.
- - - - Edna St. Vincent Millay "Time Does Not Bring Relief" 1917

Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling into at night. I miss you like hell.
- - - - Edna St. Vincent Millay

I don't wish to imply
that there aren't good
things about you
or that you're not
an extraordinary person
but I'd rather
let other people
enjoy the surprise
- - - - George Tsargas "now that it's over"

Once, when I was young and true,
Someone left me sad -
Broke my brittle heart in two;
And that was very bad.

Love is for unlucky folk,
Love is but a curse.
Once there was a heart I broke;
And that, I think, is worse.
- - - - Dorothy Parker "A Very Short Song"

Little drops of rain
Whisper of the pain
Tears of love
Lost in the days gone by.
- - - - Robert Plant "Thank You"

Laurel is green for a season, and love is sweet
For a day.
And love grown bitter with treason, and laurel
Outlives not May.
- - - - Algernon Charles Swinburne "Hymn to Proserpine"
