Long Distance Love

He sang for me last night
Just a whisper of a song but it shined so bright
I heard the longing in his voice
Like he wanted to love but it wasn't his choice

I thought that we could make this work
That distance doesn't matter just like love doesn't need to hurt
That a hundred miles apart isn't that far
But sitting alone in my room was too hard

But he will always have my heart tucked in the pocket in his shirt
And I can’t help falling for this lonely boy, though we never come face to face
With all his flaws and insecurities, I still want to feel his warm embrace
I want this lonely boy to see that I want to fix his hurt

My friends all told me, that he wasn't real and would hurt me, but I guess they haven't felt true love yet
When you know it's real, then that's love till the very end
I try to fix all my mistakes to get this lonely boy to see its real
But I guess I’ll just sit back and let my broken heart heal

I wrote this song about a boy that I write letters to. I got inspiration from the song Fingers crossed by Elijah woods

your title is okay, but not great, it could some more thought. is this "boy" an internet relationship? have you ever met him, seen him in person or heard his voice? I'm wondering if he is a real person and even a "he".

what I am saying is that there are a lot of phonies out there who like to play games with nice, sweet, innocent people such as yourself. also dangerous people, so be very careful.

your poem needs structural work, but it has potential.

I've thought it over... maybe removing (songs help] would make a better title.

I've been wondering when you would pop up again! You have a good poem here. I can see this as a school project.
That said, I should tell you that there are a couple of things that your teacher will call you out on.
1] it should be [shone on] instead of shined on.
2] pocket [of] his shirt.
3] I would use [can] instead of want for the end of the line: "I want this boy to see, that I [can] fix his hurt."

Go over your punctuation and make sure that you get the ones that you missed.
I think that you can get an A for this one!
Nice to see you, don't be such a stranger! ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?
