1. And The World Carries On

       by Amy O Connor

The plates will still shift
and the clouds will still spew.
The sun will slowly rise
and the moon will follow too.

Life’s beauty will continue
to flourish all around,
but now you are gone,
these birds have no sound.

And my heart does not beat.
It is still inside my chest.
My tears keep on falling
and my head will not rest.

But I have no choice only
to move through this life.
Endlessly attempting
to fill this longing that is rife.

2. The Good Times Are Over

       by Luke A. Wilks

I was happiest with you
I thought you were happy too
Now that you left, only sadness does remain
I can’t get the thought of you out of my brain

They say all wounds heal in time
But it’s been a while, and I’m still not fine
If I could turn back time and have one more day
I would go to when we were together, and there I’d stay

But I can’t change the past
And good times never seem to last
I’m grateful for the time we had
I hope one day I can stop being so sad

3. A Broken Heart

       by Jenna

How do I mend a broken heart?
My entire world has fallen apart.
How do I find hope in a brand new day,
when the one I love has gone away?
My mind overflows with memories of you,
of all that we’ve shared, all that we knew.
I long for your touch and your warm embrace,
the look in your eyes, the smile on your face.
My dreams are filled with your soft gentle kiss.
I wake and cry for all that I miss.
How do I mend a broken heart,
when my one true love and I are apart?
My heart knows to love only you, it won’t let go, what do I do?
Our moments together were precious and few,
but I cherished them all more than you knew.
I love you, my angel, and always will.
I loved you then and I love you still.

4. Hole In My Heart

       by Georgina F.

There is a hole in my heart, what can I do?
Please someone help me, I’m in pain too.
I’m hurting so bad, can’t shake this pain.
I have this hole in my heart, my love was in vain.
Countless nights I spent in tears.
Sleepless nights, can’t get rid of my fears.
I’m afraid I can’t love with this hole in my heart.
I’m afraid I can’t love; it’s tearing me apart.
I’m afraid I’ll never, never feel love so pure.
This hole in my heart, will it ever be cured?
Please, someone, help me to heal this pain.
I have this hole in my heart, so hard to sustain.
What can I do? I ask once more.
With this hole in my heart, not there before.

5. Do You Know

       by Michelle Boyd

Do you know a life of loneliness and one filled with pain,
living a life with nothing to gain,
Surrounded by darkness, overwhelmed with shame.
A life without peace with no one to blame.

Do you know of a place unseen,
A place that holds only shattered dreams,
A place filled with sorrow with no end in sight,
I am given this gift each and every night.

Do you know of a place so cold,
This is the place I call my soul,
A place without hope or comforting dreams,
A life not worth living wouldn’t it seem.

Do you know of a life that should have never been,
And the feeling that today this life has to end.
One more day of sadness is much too hard to bear,
I am tired of living a life of heartache and despair.

Do you know a person with so much pain inside,
Or the feeling of loneliness when no one hears your cries,
Maybe when the tears are gone and I can clearly see,
The only question left will be…

6. In The Shadows

       by Holly A. Blackwell

You left me in the shadows, alone in the dark.
I was left crying and upset the day you broke my heart.
I tried to move on and meet someone new,
But when I was in their arms, I wished it was you.
I tried and tried to push my feelings aside,
But my feelings for you I couldn’t hide.
Time passed, and I changed and grew.
I matured and moved on from the person you knew.
I started to pick myself up, I saw the light,
Until I saw you that Saturday night.
For you played with heart like you did before,
Made me feel like we could be more,
But you left my life, like you did before.
No cares in the world when you walked through that door,
So now I’m in the shadows, alone in the dark,
Now crying and upset as you’ve broken my heart.

7. Never Give All the Heart

       by W. B. Yeats

Never give all the heart, for love
Will hardly seem worth thinking of
To passionate women if it seem
Certain, and they never dream
That it fades out from kiss to kiss;
For everything that’s lovely is
But a brief, dreamy, kind delight …

8. My Baby Is Worth It

       by Anonymous

With tears in my eyes, I’m going to write this
It’s not easy but I will try
This is my life till I die
I can’t change it
Even if I wanted
Cause my baby is all that matters
I’ll pretend if I have to
I’ll give in to whatever I need to
But seeing my baby happy is worth it
Her smile and laughter will be my heart
Her hugs will be my beat
And her love will be my goal
To achieve this ill have to keep being myself
Someone fake and unhappy
Willing to give her life
With tears and heartache, I will keep living
Even if reality sinks in like nails that on my skin are digging

Famous Broken Heart Poems

Whether you’ve been dating for years or just a few weeks, breaking up might seem like the world is collapsing around you. But I’m here to tell you that there is one thing that may be able to help you get over a breakup: heart break poetry. Here are some famous broken heart poems for you. ‎

1. I Tried So Hard

       by Whitney Barton

I tried so hard.
I tried my best.
I gave you my all,
And now there’s nothing left.

You stole my heart
Then tore it in two.
Now I’m falling apart
And don’t know what to do.

Divided by decisions,
Burned by the fire,
Confused by your words,
Tempted by desire.

I’m living in the present.
My mind is on the past.
Not knowing what I’ll lose,
Not knowing what will last.

Blinded by fear,
Drowning in doubt,
Struggling to be free,
Looking for a way out.

2. Broken Hearted Lover

       by Gina Petersen

I loved you,
But you broke my heart.
I should have known
That was your goal from the start.

You told me you loved me,
And you seemed upset
When I didn’t say it back,
And that’s my biggest regret.

You talked of the future
And put it in my head
That you wanted me for longer,
But you dropped me instead.

I would do anything for you,
But you couldn’t even wait.
I wanted you in my life;
I knew this on our first date.

I love you still,
But it doesn’t matter,
For the heart I gave you,
You have shattered.

So I am left broken
And picking up the pieces,
While you are smiling
And your care decreases.

You knew I was fragile,
Even though I acted tough.
You told me not to pretend,
That you could see past my bluff.

I still love you,
And I don’t think I will ever stop.
Just know if you need me,
Your heart I will never drop

3. What’s Next?

       by Amanda

I lie awake tonight,
Wishing of things I can change.
I try to convince myself,
But it’s all so strange.

Is it me,
Or is it you?
Do I try,
Or are we through?

So long we’ve shared
Just to walk away.
But so much hurt
To want to stay.

Why do we do this,
Try to hurt the other more,
Only to watch one
Walk right out the door?

I love you so much,
Yet I push you to the point of breaking,
But why do you play with my heart
And never stop taking?

Is this the end
Or a new beginning?
Only one can guide me
When my head is spinning.

Don’t push,
Don’t try,
Don’t stress,
Don’t cry.

That is what plays
Over in my head
As I try to close my eyes
And just go to bed.

4. Hoping

       by Tara Ong

I write this poem for you to read,
with heartache that will forever bleed.
I wish things were so different.
Sadly, this is what you’ve made of me.
I sit here alone day by day,
realizing my life is better off this way.
I admit I still hurt from all your lies,
yet you’ll never hear my cries.
You once made my world stand tall and proud.
Now what’s left has crumbled down.
Something good has come of this,
One more chance to find true happiness.
I guess this is goodbye, and so it shall be,
wishing for your love was foolish of me.
I will move on, which was too easy for you.
I wrote this poem hoping you’d feel heartache too.

5. Irony

       by Tiana

I wanted to forget you
So I stopped talking to you
But then you made it worse
By coming in my dreams everyday.
You touched me.
You missed me.
You hugged me.
Your presence lingers around me.
It’s like you are in my blood.
I breathe you.
But ironic fact I still haven’t touched you in reality even once.

6. After Love

       by Sara Teasdale

There is no magic any more,
We meet as other people do,
You work no miracle for me
Nor I for you.

You were the wind and I the sea—
There is no splendor any more,
I have grown listless as the pool
Beside the shore.

But though the pool is safe from storm
And from the tide has found surcease,
It grows more bitter than the sea,
For all its peace.

7. One Art

       by Elizabeth Bishop

The art of losing isn’t hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother’s watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn’t a disaster.

—Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan’t have lied. It’s evident
the art of losing’s not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

       by Timothy Johnson

I feel all alone
no one to call my own
I felt love once
could feel it in my soul
made me feel so whole
but my selfish desires took their toll
so now I walk alone

2. My Love Is Gone

       by Ralph P Quinonez

Lord, hear my prayer oh so dear.
My heart is aching; my mind isn’t clear.
My love has left me; it hurts my soul.
Without that love, I don’t feel whole.

3. Put Heartbreak To Rest

       by Harpreet M. Dayal

Put heartbreak to rest.
Untangle your soul
from its tight grip.
Say goodbye to the
parts holding on.
Move forward in peace
and discover the new,
evolved you.

4. A Triolet Of Heartbreak

       by Ann D. Stevenson

Why did you have to go away
and leave me with a broken heart.
I prayed and prayed that you would stay,
why did you have to go away.
Now every day is dark and grey,
I never thought we’d be apart.
Why did you have to go away
and leave me with a broken heart.

5. My Empty, Broken Heart

       by Teresa Forbes

My empty, broken heart is left in the pouring rain to soak up my tears.
I lay all night all by myself dying with tears running down my wet face,
’cause the person I loved ripped out my heart waiting for me to die.
Dying, bleeding with no one to love because no one acts as if they care for me.
Each time I try to talk to someone,
they always act as if I don’t exist.
Hesitating to talk to the person I loved at one point kills me more and more each day.

6. Ebb

       by Edna St. Vincent Millay

I know what my heart is like
Since your love died:
It is like a hollow ledge
Holding a little pool
Left there by the tide,
A little tepid pool,
Drying inward from the edge.

1. Fixing A Broken Heart

       by Blake Auden

I can’t tell you
how to fix
a broken heart,
but I can tell you
the importance
of keeping moving.
I can tell you
that even when
you have no idea
which direction to go,
bravery is putting
one foot in front
of the other
anyway.

2. Broken When You Left

       by Caitlin

Baby, I guess it was never meant to be.
I miss what we used to be,
but baby, can’t you see that I’m dying?
I’ve spent all of my lonely nights crying,
making myself believe it’s not true
and end up waking in the morning without you.
My heart seems to shatter every time I hear your voice,
reminding me of what we had, and your stupid choice.
I wish I had never made that stupid decision,
the one that changed my life forever.
I wish I could still make you see
how much you meant to me.
It’s too late for me to say I love you,
you’ve already moved on.
I was just an innocent girl looking for love,
you were just a boy looking for a sign,
to go back to what you had before,
and I was what made you realize,
that you needed her more.

3. The Siren

       by YoungPoet

He wrote her a song, but it never got finished
They both fell in love, but it was soon diminished
She sits on his bed and cries in his lap
He cries back at her, knowing they can’t go back.

Hours go by and neither one can accept
That by letting go they are doing what’s best
At the end of the day, comes the part which he fears
To let her go without shedding a tear

Never again will he kiss her goodbye
And just that thought makes him start to cry
Now he’ll finish that song, and he’ll write it today
This is the start and here’s what it says

“You are my siren, you drew me in
With a voice like an angel and the softest skin
Your eyes shine like diamonds and your smile melts my heart
I know that nothing could tear us apart”

That’s what he wrote and let me just say
That he’d never do anything to throw that away
But that’s not how it works; this world’s bitter and harsh
And then something happened, which drew them apart

An old boyfriend showed up and that’s when he knew
That her feelings for him were not shiny and new
This person left her and crushed her heart
But she had loved him since the very start.

When our boy came along she saw a way
To end her pain and make it all go away
But by loving this person through thick and through thin
She looked at our boy and wished it was him

Now this is where the second verse starts
It’s about how she seemed to break his heart
He found out her feelings, it went straight to his head
So he carried on writing and here’s what he said

“You make me smile when no one else can
It just makes me happy to be your man
But it hurts me deeply that you long for his heart
I thought we would last, but this breaks us apart”

He sat in his room and just wished he
Could be just like her ex so that they could be
But as long as he was there they could never be true
So he’d sit in his room feeling sad and blue

Now comes the part where she’s crying in his lap
They both just decided to never go back
The pain is immense but it’s saving his heart
Because staying with her would rip him apart

Here’s where he decides to finish the song
The story of how it all went wrong
He starts the last verse with tears dripping off his nose
The papers all wet but here’s how it goes.

“You were my siren, you drew me in
You taught me to love and you taught me to sin
I never thought you could break my heart
But I guess we were wrong right from the start”

“You were my siren, now I’m dead at sea
You drew me in, but you didn’t want me
I just wish I knew where it all went wrong
But now another lost sailor can hear your song”

4. Bottom Of My Heart

       by Efi

Don’t talk anymore, my love
Just look at me
and you will understand
how I feel.
Look deep in my eyes
and you’ll see your name,
my soul’s broken mirror.
I love you more than you believe,
like you are my life,
my other half,
my subconscious guardian angel.
Look around you,
has anyone loved you more than I do?
Never cry, my love
’cause you’ll make me bleed.
Always be happy
’cause your smile is a source of life for me.
I breathe when you breathe.
But forgive me
for what I say.
I know you feel nothing.
For you, I’m just a silly game
that you played with once
and now you hate
even to look at.
I’m sorry for my feelings
I know they drown you,
they don’t set you free.
Come and tell me you hate me,
that there’s no other chance,
no fake hope.
Don’t show me, but tell me.
And then I will leave
I swear I will leave you,
my endless pain.
It’s not your fault,
I can’t blame you;
it’s me who loves you.
Tell me your truth
and you’ll never see your name in my eyes again,
’cause I’ll keep our past and my love
in the bottom of my heart
and I’ll be gone…

5. Shattered Soul

       by Shianne

Heartbeat falls upon deaf ears,
Slowly take away all my fears.
Coldness closes in all around
As your shattered soul falls to the ground.
Teardrops fall from the skies,
Raindrops form in your eyes.
The hurting goes so deep.
Starlit sky burns out as you weep
Tears of fury, cries of hate,
As you curse your destined fate.
Your wall breaks down, exposes the world outside
And reminds you of every time you tried
To be perfect for the one you love,
To be like an angel sent from above.
Reminding you of all you couldn’t be,
You chose this lie, wove this fantasy.
You wanted happiness for a while, at least,
And by doing so you unleashed a beast
That took the happiness, left only pain,
Turned your world black, your dreams now slain.
As you know, he broke your heart,
But your soul was shattered from the very start.

6. Footprint on Your Heart

       by Gary Lenhart

Someone will walk into your life,
Leave a footprint on your heart,
Turn it into a mudroom cluttered
With encrusted boots, children’s mittens,
Scratchy scarves—
Where you linger to unwrap
Or ready yourself for rough exits
Into howling gales or onto
Frozen car seats, expulsions
Into the great outdoors where touch
Is muffled, noses glisten,
And breaths stab,
So that when you meet someone
Who is leaving your life
You will be able to wave stiff
Icy mitts and look forward
To an evening in spring
When you can fold winter away
Until your next encounter with
A chill so numbing you strew
The heart’s antechamber
With layers of rural garble.

1. It Feels Like A Lifetime Ago

       by Raquel Franco

Feels like a lifetime ago
that I loved like that.
Wanting more
and more and more.
There are no photographs.
No forgotten sweatshirts.
No saved brunch receipts
or concert tickets.
No proof that I was madly
in love with you.
We carved our names
into nothing.
My skin aches knowing
all I have left
is a fading film reel
of your smile.

2. I Don’t Miss It

       by Tracy K. Smith

But sometimes I forget where I am,
Imagine myself inside that life again.
 
Recalcitrant mornings. Sun perhaps,
Or more likely colorless light
 
Filtering its way through shapeless cloud.
 
And when I begin to believe I haven’t left,
The rest comes back. Our couch. My smoke
 
Climbing the walls while the hours fall.
Straining against the noise of traffic, music,
 
Anything alive, to catch your key in the door.
And that scamper of feeling in my chest,
 
As if the day, the night, wherever it is
I am by then, has been only a whir
 
Of something other than waiting.
 
We hear so much about what love feels like.
Right now, today, with the rain outside,
 
And leaves that want as much as I do to believe
In May, in seasons that come when called,
 
It’s impossible not to want
To walk into the next room and let you
 
Run your hands down the sides of my legs,
Knowing perfectly well what they know.

3. How?

       by Anna-Marie

We talked for hours about nothing at all
as the music played on
and the day turned to night.
We walked side by side in endless circles under the light of the moon.
Now you say our time was wasted and my love is pointless.
How can you say such a thing without a hint of pain in your voice
and no tears in your eyes…are you that cold inside?
To you, life is just a game that you think you cannot beat.
And we are all just players you believe you must defeat.

4. Hearts Incomplete

       by Anela Arif

I made a mistake. I wanted someone more than my own heartbeat.
I gave my love, my life, my soul to hear that one’s heartbeat.

I thought we’d be forever.
My mistake, I wasn’t allowed to love, to be loved, to live, to laugh.
      
The world saw me as forsaken, my life grew to fall apart.
Years go by, my heart still broken, my grief still struck-en.

My sorrow walks parallel with my steps.
Lost, confused, hopelessly lingers my soul.

Clueless, innocent, my heart listens to others till it’s lead astray.
Still my heart lingers, not yet complete, ponders if it’s ever to meet.

Now entered another’s heart beat, but still does not meet.
I wonder if this heart is ever to meet, or must it always be incomplete?

5. Restored

       by Kelsey Brock

One. Two. Five. Ten.
I am counting it over and over again.
Twenty. Fifty. One-hundred and two?
How many times you said you loved me true.
One thousand, six hundred and five.
How many times you stood there and lied.
Four billion, nine thousand, six hundred and ten
How many chances I gave you over again
Eleven zillion, six billion, five million, then some
How many feelings you have torn and undone.
But one, just one, poor little heart you destroyed.
Although it was not whole before,
Now it can never be restored.

6. Love Lost

       by Lexi

Dawn breaks, the sun rises,
Cars rush down the road,
People walk the streets,
Shops open, newspapers outside.

The alarm sounds,
My body moves on autopilot.
I shower and change,
Key in the ignition, I drive to work.

The present surrounds me,
But everything feels numb,
A world so surreal,
As if I’m not really here.

My mind’s lost in the past,
Full of mistakes and regret,
But time heals the hurt,
So they say.

I wait for dusk to fall,
When reality drifts away.
Sleep dispels the pain,
And another day fades.

Loss
Is an empty place to be,
An unimaginable torment,
An indescribable word.

With a hole in my heart,
I am forced to make a new start,
But if I could turn back the clock,
I would never visit this place again.

7. Wait

       by Galway Kinnell

Wait, for now.
Distrust everything, if you have to.
But trust the hours. Haven’t they
carried you everywhere, up to now?
Personal events will become interesting again.
Hair will become interesting.
Pain will become interesting.
Buds that open out of season will become lovely again.
Second-hand gloves will become lovely again,
their memories are what give them
the need for other hands. And the desolation
of lovers is the same: that enormous emptiness
carved out of such tiny beings as we are
asks to be filled; the need
for the new love is faithfulness to the old.

Wait.
Don’t go too early.
You’re tired. But everyone’s tired.
But no one is tired enough.
Only wait a while and listen.
Music of hair,
Music of pain,
music of looms weaving all our loves again.
Be there to hear it, it will be the only time,
most of all to hear,
the flute of your whole existence,
rehearsed by the sorrows, play itself into total exhaustion.

Relationship Broken Heart Poems

Sometimes a relationship ends quietly, which may be much more traumatic than a dramatic breakup. If you’re going through anything similar, you could identify with these broken love poems. ‎

1. The More Loving One

       by W. H. Auden

Looking up at the stars, I know quite well
That, for all they care, I can go to hell,
But on earth indifference is the least
We have to dread from man or beast.

How should we like it were stars to burn
With a passion for us we could not return?
If equal affection cannot be,
Let the more loving one be me.

Admirer as I think I am
Of stars that do not give a damn,
I cannot, now I see them, say
I missed one terribly all day.

Were all stars to disappear or die,
I should learn to look at an empty sky
And feel its total dark sublime,
Though this might take me a little time.

2. Power Of Words

       by Nick Grasso

was it the first time I saw your face
or when I first saw you smile
when I was settled in my place
hope you’d stay for a while

when I thought that my life
couldn’t get any better
I knew you were right
we weren’t meant to be together

was I too caught up
in the time I spent with you
or was it that I wasn’t tough
because of something that I knew

I can’t believe I didn’t know
that you were slowly letting go
that we were drifting apart
with a hole in my heart

when I see you every day
I know I made a mistake
but with no effort in your tries
I found out all your lies

so now we go our separate ways
and say our goodbyes
you’ve driven me to my grave
with me drowning in your lies

3. Flower That Bloomed In The Dead Of Winter Died Of Loneliness

       by Judii

I believe at the end of my life
the credits will read tragedy,
that with the last blink of my eye your face will cross my mind,
and I’ll go back to that day
in the dead of winter,
when I was warm,
because I had your arms,
but for that moment they were mine.
That night, all you wanted was me,
and my last breath will be taken away at the realization
that all I’ve ever wanted was you…

4. I Fell In Love With You

       by Kristin

I just wish you would come back to me,
tell me it’s gonna be alright,
the way things were supposed to be,
you holding me so tight.

You kiss me on the lips,
and tell me this is love.
Your arms wrapped around,
and for me that’s enough.

Tell me that you’re sorry,
for all that I’ve been through,
that I don’t deserve this,
I could do much better than you.

But I just stand there,
and I hold my breath.
I know there is no one better,
I will love you until death.

Too bad this is all a dream,
all so unreal.
Baby, it’s so hard to explain
the way you made me feel.

5. The Hunter’s Call

       by Hardison

My heart pounding as I hear his hunter’s call.
I follow the trail of crumbs full
of broken promises, lies, and pain,
Knowing he has the power to hurt me
over and over again.
Standing before him at his mercy.
Exposed in the light of another day.
Trusting the declaration of his undying
Love for me once more.
I watch in disbelief as he pulls back
into the shadows without one word
Knowing he has taken aim.
I stand silent, weak and trembling
as I listen to the beating of my own heart.
Numb in that split second to the piercing
of his arrow straight through my heart.
I quickly fade into the darkness without a word.
Crawling back into my place of shame.
With every beat of my heart, I bleed.
With every tear from my face, I feel
Cold and so alone.
The life drains from my body with every breath.
In my final moment, I wonder if he will feel remorse
And search for me to bury my remains.

6. This Was Once a Love Poem

       by Jane Hirshfield

This was once a love poem,
before its haunches thickened, its breath grew short,
before it found itself sitting,
perplexed and a little embarrassed,
on the fender of a parked car,
while many people passed by without turning their heads.

It remembers itself dressing as if for a great engagement.
It remembers choosing these shoes,
this scarf or tie.

Once, it drank beer for breakfast,
drifted its feet
in a river side by side with the feet of another.

Once it pretended shyness, then grew truly shy,
dropping its head so the hair would fall forward,
so the eyes would not be seen.

IT spoke with passion of history, of art.
It was lovely then, this poem.
Under its chin, no fold of skin softened.
Behind the knees, no pad of yellow fat.
What it knew in the morning it still believed at nightfall.
An unconjured confidence lifted its eyebrows, its cheeks.

The longing has not diminished.
Still it understands. It is time to consider a cat,
the cultivation of African violets or flowering cactus.

Yes, it decides:
Many miniature cacti, in blue and red painted pots.
When it finds itself disquieted
by the pure and unfamiliar silence of its new life,
it will touch them—one, then another—
with a single finger outstretched like a tiny flame.

1. Love, I’m Done with You

       by Ross Gay

You ever wake up with your footie PJs warming
your neck like a noose? Ever upchuck
after a home-cooked meal? Or notice
how the blood on the bottoms of your feet
just won’t seem to go away? Love, it used to be
you could retire your toothbrush for like two or three days and still
I’d push my downy face into your neck. Used to be
I hung on your every word. (Sing! you’d say: and I was a bird.
Freedom! you’d say: and I never really knew what that meant,
but liked the way it rang like a rusty bell.) Used to be. But now
I can tell you your breath stinks and you’re full of shit.
You have more lies about yourself than bodies
beneath your bed. Rooting
for the underdog. Team player. Hook,
line and sinker. Love, you helped design the brick
that built the walls around the castle
in the basement of which is a vault
inside of which is another vault
inside of which . . . you get my point. Your tongue
is made of honey but flicks like a snake’s. Voice
like a bird but everyone’s ears are bleeding.
From the inside your house shines
and shines, but from outside you can see
it’s built from bones. From out here it looks
like a graveyard, and the garden’s
all ash. And besides,
your breath stinks. We’re through

2. Rebirth

       by Brett W. Jansen

The rain falls upon the stone.
No longer is it of use,
For a crack has ruined its purpose.
It is now only a tool for abuse.

A careless heart created the crack,
Allowing the rain to increase the ravine,
So now the rock only crumbles,
Creating a depressing scene.

Yet alas, a blossom rises from the shards.
The unforgiving rain drowns the bud,
Causing it to wilt,
Falling back to the mud

Until a careful hand
Led with patience and care
Saves the dying flower
From all its darkness and despair.

3. Can’t Let Go Of You, Don’t Want To

       by Amy Lorraine Bridges

Today doesn’t seem real,
That might be because today I can’t feel.
I can’t feel the sun, moon, or stars,
I miss the love that used to be ours.
I wish you were here,
‘Cause now in my mind your face is no longer clear,
The memories of you are almost lost.
My love and trust I have already tossed,
So when you leave,
Please promise me this time you will just let me be.
Let me be me and only me.
You always come back to haunt me, follow me everywhere,
But this time, my life no longer will I share.
Forgetting you is something I will never be able to do.
Even though I say I hate you, you know it’s because I love you.
Let me know you can’t forget me either,
When you do, I’ll know it’s true because you’re not a people pleaser.
I pray and pray to be able to let you go,
But there’s just something about you,
What? I don’t know.
When I’m with you I feel like I’m flying,
Now all I’m doing is crying.
I’m hurt and numb.
Without you now I feel so lost and dumb,
What you did to me and put me through hurt so bad.
Your love used to make me happy,
Now it makes me cold, hurt, and sad.
Every night I go to bed clutching my pillow pretending someone loves me.
I’m stuck; there’s nowhere I can run to or flee.
I have no choice; I have to keep walking on,
Like new legs on a baby fawn.
One day, someday, I’ll be free,
Free to run and walk and be fine being a lonely me.

4. Open Wounds

       by Amanda

We take turns being selfish
The painful tug-of-war we play
Back-and-forth pull our relationship
But love is not a game

Around you feel vulnerable
Chest is ripped open wide
Hands hold eachothers hearts
And full
Bodies unbalance and collide

We make love
Walls come crashing down
Hearts are relit with fire
In the intensity I drown
Consumed by desire

You wrap arms around me
In front of guys
As if they’ll catch my beauty
Try to steal your prize

When we are alone I feel so small
Demeanor reminding I’m insignificant
How is the one who causes my self-worth to fall
The same person who made me feel magnificent?

The distance between grows more every day
So sick of being used
The lies that push me further away
The reason my heart is bruised

Baby I know I am awful to you as well
Do not want to break your heart
Make your life a living hell
I’ve become a master of the art

Way too many mistakes tossed aside
Neither of us can truly amend
You remember how many incidents I let slide
Suppose my forgiveness was only pretend

Because resentment slowly built
Time passed
I couldn’t see it til it was too late
I could never quite let go of the past
Start over with a blank slate

It is not so simple to forget what we had
Every day to memories am exposed
How do you heal and stop being sad
When wounds never fully closed?

5. Non-Existent Promise

       by Michelle

That night we spent together, I wished it
would have lasted forever, I always thought
we would be together, now I’m sitting here
alone thinking my forever will never be

Every day I just sit and cry
thinking about that night we spent together
and you promised we’d be
together forever

Now with a broken heart, a promise that’s
non-existent, I think of what my future
will be like, and if one day you will be my
forever

Scared of ending up alone, just ’cause the
fear I’d never want to forget about forever
and how it would have been

This night thinking about you, how I always
had you on my mind, made me realize
I don’t want this to last forever

That night we spent together, I wished
it would have lasted forever, now I’m
sitting here making my own forever;
what I want it to be instead of crying
alone hoping you will still be my forever
and we’d last together

My forever is just beginning, I do wish you
will finally find your forever and
never promise you’d last together
forever if your forever will never matter

I know my life and happiness I have every day
and night will last forever, now you are
finally my non-existent
FOREVER

6. You Thought

       by Dorothea Lasky

You thought I’d flipped the switch and I hadn’t
You thought I’d left the window open
And I wouldn’t
You thought I’d turn the dial up
But I didn’t
You thought I’d ring the sun the super
But I shouldn’t
You thought I’d unlock the beehive
But I wouldn’t
You thought I’d sing the dirge
But I couldn’t
You thought I’d cook the rabbit
And I hadn’t
You thought I’d come back that day
And I didn’t
You thought I’d tend the flowers
But I couldn’t
You thought I’d turn the lock
But I hadn’t
You thought I’d open the door
See you
But I couldn’t
You thought I’d lay down
But I couldn’t
It kills me still
I couldn’t
I couldn’t

Broken Heart Poems for Healing

Let us now go through some heal a broken heart poems. Things break in order to heal. Always keep that in mind! It simply takes some time for things to heal. With that stated, here are some healing poems for heartbreak that can help you recover quickly. ‎

1. Snowdrops

       by Louise Gluck

Do you know what I was, how I lived? You know
what despair is; then
winter should have meaning for you.
I did not expect to survive,
earth suppressing me. I didn’t expect
to waken again, to feel
in damp earth my body
able to respond again, remembering
after so long how to open again
in the cold light
of earliest spring —
afraid, yes, but among you again
crying yes risk joy
in the raw wind of the new world.

2. Accepting Heartache

       by Tania

I used to know you
I used to care for you
Even though you weren’t true
I saw something in you
That made me to want to stay.

It was a learning curve
Because your mistakes, your heartache
Gave me a breakthrough
To escape the misery you put me through.

What you did
Made me doubt my beliefs
In something I thought was so great
But even so, I know the hole you dug inside my heart
Is slowly but surely closing up

They say what doesn’t kill you makes you strong
I say I know what you did was wrong
When I look at my life I realize
Experience is the best teacher
I found strength in my weakness.

I’ve done enough crying caused by your deceit and lying
It took me a while, I ain’t going to lie
But now that I have accepted and accommodated your deceitfulness
And learned to take a step forward without feeling any weakness

I have my life ahead of me
Even though sometimes it feels like I can’t go on
I know accepting what you did and forgiving you
Was what I had to do to make my life right.

3. Waiting for This Story to End Before I Begin Another

       by Jan Heller Levi

All my stories are about being left,
all yours about leaving. So we should have known.
Should have known to leave well enough alone;
we knew, and we didn’t. You said let’s put
our cards on the table, your card
was your body, the table my bed, where we didn’t
get till 4 am, so tired from wanting
what we shouldn’t that when we finally found our heads,
we’d lost our minds. Love, I wanted to call you
so fast. But so slow you could taste each
letter licked into your particular and rose-like ear.
L, love, for let’s wait. O, for oh no, let’s not. V
for the precious v between your deep breasts
(and the virtue of your fingers
in the voluptuous center of me.)
 
Okay, E for enough.
 
Dawn broke, or shattered. Once we’ve made
the promises, it’s hard to add the prefix if. . . .
But not so wrong to try.
That means taking a lot of walks,
which neither of us is good at,
for different reasons, and nights up till 2
arguing whose reasons are better.
Time and numbers count a lot in this. 13
years my marriage. 5 years you my friend.
4th of July weekend when something that begins
in mist, by mistake (whose?), means too much
has to end. I think we need an abacus to get our love
on course, and one of us to oil the shining rods
so we can keep the crazy beads clicking,
clicking. It wasn’t a question
of a perfect fit. Theoretically,
it should be enough to say I left a man
for a woman (90% of the world is content
to leave it at that. Oh, lazy world) and when the woman
lost her nerve, I left
for greater concerns: when words like autonomy
were useful, I used them, I confess. So I get
what I deserve: a studio apartment he paid the rent on;
bookshelves up to the ceiling she drove
the screws for. And a skylight I sleep alone
beneath, and two shiny quarters in my pocket
to call one, then the other, or to call one
 
twice. Once, twice, I threatened to leave him—
remember? Now that I’ve done it, he says
he doesn’t. I’m in a phonebooth at the corner of Bank
and Greenwich; not a booth, exactly,
but two sheets of glass to shiver between.
This is called being street-smart: dialing
a number that you know won’t be answered,
but the message you leave leaves proof that you tried.
And this, my two dearly beloveds, is this called
hedging your bets? I fish out my other
coin, turn it over in my fingers, press
it into the slot. Hold it there. Let it drop.

4. I’ll Lie To Myself

       by Hilary Wong

There’s nothing left of me
Nothing more to take
I’m nothing more than just another story
Just give me a break

I’m nothing anymore
Are you happy?
Does it make you happy
To know that I’ll live the rest of my life miserably

Does it make you feel better
To make me feel bad
To make me realize
All we ever had

I’ll do anything to forget
The horrid memories
All the time spent
In such misery

I’ll lie to myself
I’ll lie to everyone else
What is there to lose?
The one closest to me has already said farewell

5. Dear Broken Heart

       by Sarah N. Hilliard

Dear broken heart, why can’t you fix me?
And dear broken heart, are you still with me?
And when I lay my head down and
Think of the things that I’ll never do,
Dear broken heart, know I’m thinking of you.
Dear restless past, I remembered you
And the way you make things wrong.
Do you want my tears to fall?
So I’m standing all alone,
All by myself, cold to the bone.
Do you still want me there, just to take the fall?
Dear broken heart, will you want me after all?
Dear desperate soul, are you still searching for the one?
The one who made me what I am,
The one who broke this heart and made me who I am,
Ripped from his hands.
And dear broken heart, this letter is for you.
I hope you get it in time.
And please dear broken heart, promise me you won’t cry, cry ,cry.
Please don’t cry for me.

6. Our Many Never Endings

       by Courtney Queeney

You entered the bedroom and fell to your knees.
I wait the rest of my life to hear you say, I made a mistake.

Inside my chest, a mangle.
Inside yours, a deflating balloon.

You took the vacuum cleaner, the ironing board, the dish rack
and left me some lint, an iron to scorch shirts, one chipped plate.

I would like to say at least we perfected
entrances and exits, like professional stage actors

honing their craft, but even that’s a fantasy.
Mostly on TV the lions ate the hyenas

but sometimes the hyenas
formed a posse, and tore a lion up.

Occasionally you came in out of the rain
and I was glad to have you.

Broken Heart Poems for Him

Heartbreak is a pain. No matter what you do or how you keep yourself occupied, there comes a point when you can’t take it longer and collapse. And that’s just OK. We’ve all been through it, some more than once. Here are some broken heart poems for him to help you get through those difficult moments. Please feel free to share them with your loved ones as well. ‎

1. Look Me In The Eyes

       by Jenny

Look me in the eyes
And tell me what you see.
My hopes and dreams are shattered.
Is there no future for you and me?
I love you more than I ever thought I could.
Someday I thought we would find happiness,
Like every couple should.

Look me in the eyes.
For once tell me the truth.
Did you ever love me?
Please don’t make any excuse.

Look me in the eyes.
Can’t you see my pain?
My heart is breaking;
I have no one else to blame.

Look me in the eyes.
Can’t you see my fear?
If I’m losing you,
God take me away from here.

Look me in the eyes.
You’ll see how much I care.
The tears roll slowly down
Then vanish in thin air.

Look me in the eyes.
Can’t you see my hurt?
If not when I’m awake,
Then do it while I sleep.

Look me in the eyes
At least once before I die.
You will see the memories
That we shared through our
children. So…

Look them in the eyes,
Let them know you care.
Let them know you love them
And that you will always be there.

Look them in the eyes.
Please don’t wait until it’s too late.
Look them in the eyes,
Only speak the truth.
Lies can hurt forever
Some hearts get too torn to mend.

Look them in the eyes.
They will always need a friend.
Look them in the eyes,
Never let it end.
Then do it while I sleep

2. He’ll Never Know

       by Jennifer

I want to run, I want to hide
From all the pain he caused inside.
I want to scream, I want to cry.
Why can’t I tell him goodbye?

I want to move on; I just can’t let go.
I love him more than he will ever know.
I want to start over, I want to feel free!
But this pain will never leave me be.

He hurt me bad; the pain is deep
From all the promises he couldn’t keep.
All the lies I heard him say
Are in my head and just won’t fade.

How can I forget him, leave him behind?
Erase the memories from my mind?
He doesn’t love me, and he never will.
He will never care how I feel.

3. I Don’t Sleep Because Of You

       by Carlie

I don’t go to sleep at night
because you haunt my dreams,
and waking up to find you’re not here
is harder than it seems.
See, I’d rather stay awake at night
because one thing I know is true,
that without my dreams of us,
I’ll never be with you.
So I don’t close my eyes at night,
and I don’t go to sleep,
because if I do,
I’d have to admit defeat.
So why don’t you try living
where you can’t face your dreams,
where every minute gets harder?
well, that’s the way it feels,
and it’s not that I can’t sleep,
because that I can do,
but if I close my eyes at night
then I am with you,
and you may think that’s what I want.
And to point you would be true,
but the reason I don’t sleep at night
is all down to you.
I’d happily dream about you all day long
Because in my dreams you care.
It’s the waking up without you
That I cannot bear.

4. I Fall Back

       by Erin L. Kampen

The hardest thing I’ve ever done is let you slip away
The cut got even deeper when you had nothing to say
The ice within your veins I thought I could defrost
But somehow, I got swept up and my heart would be the cost
The things I never told you still burning in my head
A million words couldn’t reach my mouth, they will be left unsaid
A story left unfinished, no happy ending here
I fall back into darkness, my light will disappear

5. My Last Love

       by Mtarandfeather

Her hair of black and eyes of brown,
so very sweet and pretty she was.
From another country way on down,
fascinated by what she says and does.

Years went by and we fell in love
perhaps it was due to circumstance.
We seemed to fit together like a glove
but knew we were taking a chance.

She opened up to me of long pain
’cause she felt comfortable, you see.
She relayed her past and the strain
about a mother, father, brother and me.

She said I was her soul mate found
circumstances brought us together.
We felt love actually knew no bound
flocked together like birds of a feather.
 
I felt inside that she may be lost
what she needed I could provide.
My heart I felt prepared for the cost
just in the event that we may divide.

Raised without love she never felt
said she knew no other way but use.
These were the cards she was dealt
but still that is certainly no excuse.

It felt real in my heart, that’s true
and I also knew it in my head
‘Cause of time together as two
and never ever going to bed.

I felt she used me against myself
as I had a soft and open heart.
My love she used put on a shelf
took it down again and tore it apart.

Perhaps it was simply my own fault
but I believed in love and the power.
The wound hurts like filled with salt
any prospects of love again are sour.

I have fallen in love just twice in my life,
when I was young and again much older.
There’s been other love and even strife,
my heart has grown wise but now colder.

I know it’s sad to say that and I do fret
and feel I may be missing out on such.
Looking back through life with regret
to hope or love any more hurts too much.

6. You Used Me

       by Ellia Keil

You used me.
I thought you were the key,
But the truth is that you used me,
So now I will never be free.

I thought you loved me,
But I was totally wrong,
I thought you were my forever,
I thought you were my song.

Now I lay here in a crumpled mess,
Now feeling totally -less.
You used me,
And used is all I’ll ever be.

7. The Dice

       by Vinolin D

God created me as a human being in the world
By the blood and the flesh
With the loads of love.
But, you played me like a dice in the world
By your fake emotions and the fake love
With the loads of acting.

8. I Didn’t Need You

       by Hannah

I’ve never had a boyfriend.
Not even close.
But that has never stopped me from wanting one.
I use to think I needed one.
Like how could I possibly go through life without a guy by my side?
But here I am at 24 (almost 25) and still no one is around.
But now I realize that I never needed one.
I didn’t need one to make good grades or get my degree.
No that was all me.
I didn’t need one to go to prom.
And that’s because I didn’t want to go.
I didn’t need one to break heart.
No. I could do that all on my own.
I wish I could fix my broken heart myself but I can’t.
But I still don’t need one to fix my brokenness.
God is fixing my broken heart.
I’ll let you know when He’s finished.

1. Truth Lies (Broken Heart)

       by Alison

If love is great, if it is true,
Then how can you explain this thing I’m going through?
‘Cause after all those years that were together,
You decided to tell me the truth — that you’ve found someone better.

The truth that you don’t love me anymore
Is killing me to my core.
And the truth that you are the only one I adore
Is a kind of pain that I can’t take anymore.

I thought you loved me more than anything.
Then one day you just left me with nothing.
And now I’m all alone in this room where you used to lie.
Sometimes the truth makes everything seems like a lie.

2. Ode To You

       by Carl Sinclair

Every morning I see your face,
And for that fleeting second I’m in a different place,
A place where we smiled, laughed, and talked,
A place where we could hold hands wherever we walked,
I’m reminded of this each and every day.
Then the sleep clears and it’s all blown away.

Realization sets in and I’m all alone.
I quickly have to check my phone
In case you’ve called or sent me a text.
Then it hits harder as what come next
Is the empty screen with your smiling face
And the emptiness of this forsaken place.

I wither up inside as all my hopes disappear
And the burn in my heart really starts to sear.
I sink back in my bed and think of you
And wonder if there’s anything I can do.
I’m knocked back every time I try to get through,
And now the decision is up to you.

Leave me out here in the cold and the rain,
Leave me to choke on the tears and the pain,
Missing you every minute of every day,
Loving you more and more in my way.
One day, my love, this will all be like a dream.
I just hope we can dream it together in our place so serene.

3. Mad Girl’s Love Song

       by Sylvia Plath

I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,
And arbitrary blackness gallops in:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed
And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

God topples from the sky, hell’s fires fade:
Exit seraphim and Satan’s men:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I fancied you’d return the way you said,
But I grow old and I forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

I should have loved a thunderbird instead;
At least when spring comes they roar back again.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

4. The Weeping Willow

       by Azania Willson

Last night I woke up and you weren’t there.
I told myself that I shouldn’t care.
I wrapped my arms around a pillow,
Staring out the window at the weeping willow.

Why does it weep? Why all the tears?
Is it also weak and filled with fears?
Has it lost its love, like I lost mine?
Don’t worry, everything heals with time.

Last night I woke up, again all alone.
I told myself that you would never again phone.
I hugged my blanket and tried to sleep.
Again I looked at the tree. Why does it weep?

Why does it hang its head? Is it also trying to forget?
Has it given up? Is it filled with regret?
Why does the willow weep? Does it feel remorse?
Does the willow also wait for time to take its course?

Last night I woke up. The bed again was empty.
I held back all my tears because I’ve already wasted plenty.
Again I looked out the window, and there was the willow across the street.
I thought about our time together, and with the willow I began to weep.

5. To A Young Girl

       by William Butler Yeats

My dear, my dear, I know
More than another
What makes your heart beat so;
Not even your own mother
Can know it as I know,
Who broke my heart for her
When the wild thought,
That she denies
And has forgot,
Set all her blood astir
And glittered in her eyes.

6. Hollow

       by Fathimath L. Ahmed

Emotions.
Do you feel them?
She was numb and frozen,
Yet it dimly sparkled like a dying gem.

Broken.
Do you know what that feels like?
Piercing explosions,
Burning afflictions,
Hollers of agonizing cries.
She had nothing left inside.

Eyes closed,
Heartbeat stopped,
Barely alive.

She was a hollow shell.
Into an endless oblivion she fell,
Pitch black and nearly brain dead.
There was nothing in her life ahead.

Passion.
Why is it so strong?
She was deprived from it.
Devils had done her heart way too many wrongs.
Killed was the lust,
Lost was the temptation.

Love.
Why is it so painful?
Once crystal clear and beautiful,
Now a turned poison from what was as pure as golden dust.

She wanted nothing to do with it.
Not long ago it had made her bleed.

Hidden thorns
On her skin that burned.

She was a hollow shell.
Into an endless oblivion she fell.
Pitch black and nearly brain dead.
There was nothing in her life ahead.

Eyes opened,
Tears flowed,
Standing in front of a mirror,
Watching as she wholly became hollow.

7. She Waits…!

       by Elizabeth Shears

She loves him, he loves her not.
He refuses to give her just one shot.
She’s falling apart. He has no clue.
Things would be easy if only he knew.
He has her waiting for the day
He chooses her and she gets her way.
She cries herself to sleep at night.
She’s waited forever. It’s just not right.
He tells her that she’s next in line.
She’s waiting for her time to shine.
She wants to prove that she can be
More than what his eyes can see.
Every time he’s hers to take,
He proves to her their deal was fake.
His promise brings tears to her face
When others continue to take her place.
She tries to believe he’s worth the pain.
Her heart keeps reality from her brain.
She gives him everything he’s got.
She loves him; he loves her not.

8. The Dark Road To Love

       by Fathimath L. Ahmed

Destruction and ruination,
Confusion and complication.
That was all she ever was.

Mistakes and insecurities,
Culpabilities and apologies.
The world let her down just like it always does.

She walked on broken glass,
Bleeding herself out,
Numb to all the pain,
Body pale with colorless veins.

She watched as his life was intact,
Tranquil and content.
She tried to let him go,
She really did,
But everything about him pulled her to him like a magnet.

All his flaws in her eyes were like crystals,
Shining radiantly with acceptance.
No matter who he was, who he will be,
Her heart belongs to him, his truly.

Wildfires and cyclones,
Tsunamis and tornadoes.
They both went through those just to survive,
Came out stronger and more than alive.

Rejection and distances,
Resistances and broken promises.
They burned themselves for each other,
Afraid that they would perish if they came closer.

So they stayed where they were,
Carried on with their lives.
Life passed by her eyes in a blur,
As she hoped for the flames to die altogether inside,
For he had moved on.
