Oh Jenni...these feelings are the worst..leaving us to hide our sadness, feeling like we got punched in the stomach, hard to move past these memories and this craving for this person...I've been there..Boy have I been there.
It almost makes me mad to read he said you have nothing in common, then its like "then what do you call what we had? This addiction to one another? that was nothing?"..I've asked all those questions before as well and its pathetic of the other person....The song I wrote and recorded called "mislead heart" was about this exact feeling...so I get it.
I've also come to find that people like this are just not worth it...Starting over, again and again, its just not how it should work.
I don't think this poem is as bad as you thought. I really quite enjoyed it.

Bad or Mindblowing?
I'm inclined to think the latter :)
This is all too easy to empathize with,
I'm sorry :(
You applied a certain grace and sense of longing to your poem which I found that much more beautiful.
