Why I felt I’d never get my heart badly broken still confuses me. I suppose because I was so careful who I let get close to me created a false sense of security. I gave my heart only to one I thought deserved it: YOU. Blinded by love I made a bad choice. T.P.
The world breaks everyone
and afterwards many are strong
at the broken places.
Never will I never forget when you got so angry over almost nothing and ruined everything. You said horrible things, then took your engagement ring and threw it out the window of my moving car. We looked for it, but like the love we had shared, it was gone. R.B.
Anyone who falls in love is searching
for the missing pieces of themselves.
So anyone who’s in love gets sad
when they think of their lover.
It’s like stepping back inside a room
you have fond memories of,
one you haven’t seen in a long time.
Getting involved with an engaged woman was crazy. The months we secretly shared were wonderful with plenty of horrible moments mixed in. The night before your wedding you showed up at my front door. We spent the night together. I never saw you again. D.E.
It seemed so good when it started.
I gave my trust to you.
I came to you open-hearted,
Hoping it was true.
Now I’ve gotten smart.
Now I’ve learned some things.
Now I know that what once was a start,
Is just an ending.
The longest good-bye
I ever knew,
The longest good-bye
Was the day
I said hello to you.

I just realized I haven’t shed a tear over the end of “us” for over a year. I still think of you, but so very slowly, you are fading into memory. Letting you go is the hardest thing I have ever done in spite of how much you hurt me. I’ll never love again like I loved you. J.Y.
Yet nothing can to nothing fall,
Nor any place be empty quite;
Therefore I think my breast hath all
Those pieces still, though they be not unite;
And now, as broken glasses show
A hundred lesser faces, so
My rags of heart can like, wish, and adore,
But after one such love, can love no more.
You left me saying only “you needed space” and never came back. I hated you for a long time. You ignored every phone call, text and letter. As the months passed I began to realize you didn’t deserve the strong hold on me that hating you caused. So I let you go. S.P.
If you want to forget something or someone,
never hate it, or never hate him/her.
Everything and everyone that you hate
is engraved upon your heart;
if you want to let go of something,
if you want to forget, you cannot hate.

Usually missing you is only a dull ache in the back of my sub-conscious. But sometimes all the memories wake up and take me down for a day or two. I get through those times by remembering happy moments and feeling gratitude that you once loved me. M.P.
All the lonely nights
and all the crushing scenes
and all the pointless fights.
Someone tell me what it means.
Someone tell me why hearts break.
I’m giving up on happy endings.
You’ll find me in the desert of the broken-hearted. There is little to live for here. The days pass slowly and the weeks run together into one long torture. My feelings for you are melting me into nothing. I love you so much, but your love for me has vanished into the sun. V.M.
I miss the way it used to be,
Back when it was,
You and me.
I miss the way you held me tight,
I miss the way you’d call every night.
I miss the way you looked at me,
I miss everything we used to be.
I miss your touch,
I miss it so much.
I miss us so bad it hurts,
I miss it all.
Do you know what it is like to kill love? I do. After you broke my heart I prayed over and over to stop loving you and asked to die in the process. Eventually came freedom from the torment of you. I am still alive and my heart has finally dried out from the grief you left me in.
I thought when love for you died,
I should die.
Alone, most strangely, I live on.
A once new, now old chapter has closed in my book of love. Another has come and gone leaving my heart more dry than before. There remains fertile ground there, but it becomes more scarce with each who professes love and then forsakes me. E.H.
Love is the One who masters all things;
I am mastered totally by Love.
I am ground sweet as sugar.
O furious Wind, I am only a straw before you;
How could I know where I will be blown next?
What is any of us but a straw in a storm?
How could anyone make a pact with a hurricane?
In the hand of Love I am like a cat in a sack;
Sometimes Love hoists me into the air,
Sometimes Love flings me into the air,
Love swings me round and round His head;
I have no peace, in this world or any other.
The lovers of God have fallen in a furious river;
They have surrendered themselves to Love’s commands.
Like mill wheels they turn, day and night, day and night,
Constantly turning and turning, and crying out.
From “LOVE IS THE MASTER” by Rumi
Never will I regret our extraordinary romance. There were reasons we met, reasons for the good times and reasons for the bad times, and most importantly a reason to end. We have more to learn, more to experience and more loving to do in this lifetime. T.T.
Hold up… hold on…
don’t be scared;
You’ll never change
what’s been and gone.
May your smile…
Don’t be scared
Your destiny may keep you warm.
