Pain, Pain Go Away

broken20heart1When I thought you loved me were the happiest days of my life. Now that you don’t places me in the darkest time I have ever endured. Without you days feel like they are a thousand hours long. Each sleepless night passes with no rest for my broken heart. L.L.


Pain, pain go away!
Please do not come back another day.
Tears falling down my face
oh how I wish for his warm embrace.
Pain, pain go away
bring me back to another day
where he loved me and
we thought we were meant to be.
Pain, pain go away
leave me alone and do not stay.
How can he stand there and break my heart
How did we allow us to grow so far apart?

Give Me a Chance

broken20heart1At least you take my calls now and talk to me. I don’t deserve forgiveness, but I hope for it anyway. Living without you taught there is no one else I want to spend my life with. Please give me a chance and I’ll spend my life showing you the depth of my love for you. A.H.

Sometimes you love something so much
that it hurts to leave it, but you must.
Sometimes it hurts too much to hold on
to that thing you love. And sometimes
you let go of what you love because it hurts,
but then just sometimes you get it back
and live happily ever after.

All Cried Out

broken20heart1When you left I learned someone could actually die of a broken heart. I denied you were gone. I got angry. I tried bargaining to get you to come home and was depressed for months when you wouldn’t. Now I accept you’re never coming back. Goodbye my love. C.S.


I gave you all of me…
How was I to know
You would weaken so easily.
… I gave you my love in vain.
My body never knew such pleasure
My heart never knew such pain
And you…you leave me so confused
Now I’m all cried out over you.
From the song
“All Cried Out” by Allure

Can’t Forgive Myself

broken20heart1There are still moments when I have to take a deep breath before speaking to keep from crying. I’ve learned to hide my sadness so well that everyone thinks I’m fine. It’s only me that knows how tortured I am on the inside. I hurt you and I can’t forgive myself for it. D.L.


I never guessed
I could cry so hard
my face hurt.
Vernor Vinge

Stronger But More Fragile

broken20heart1Every time you hurt me, every time I felt pain, every lie that you told me made me who I am today: stronger, but more fragile. Now I realize within is strength to survive the lost of great love. But also there are fractures in my heart that make it easier to be broken. R.Y.


I believe that everything happens for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
Marilyn Monroe


broken20heart1There was a reason for why you broke my heart. There’s a reason for why you laughed when I cried, but there is no reason for why I still love you after all that pain and heartbreak. Feeling like a fool just makes the grief worse. I was so stupid to believe in you. M.H.


Do you hear that sound?
Do you know what it is?
It’s my broken heart raining
the thousand pieces you broke it into.
I played your game. You won.
Congratulations. Hope you had fun.

A Second Chance

broken20heart1There’s no way to explain my behavior except male ego and stupidity; no logic in letting a moments pleasure come before us. It was only lust with nothing meaningful in it. You own my heart; always will. I don’t deserve it, but please forgive me; take me back. J.M.


Forgive me for being so careless
with the heart that loves me so well.
I love you. You may not believe it now,
but time will certainly tell.
I made a mistake. I have made you cry.
I broke your heart, there is not one reason why,
But I am truly sorry and I want you to know
That all the love I feel for you
I want a second chance to let it show.
I am sorry, Please forgive me and
I promise if you do you will never be sorry.
Forgive Me” by Frederickia Wallace

Will Always Remain

broken20heart1No matter what, I will always forget to forget about you. The more I try making what we shared a thing of my past, the more regret grows. I miss your smile; the way you kissed me; your laugh; feeling you against me and a thousand other things. I wish I didn’t. T.M.


I can’t completely let go of you,
Let go of us…
All I can say is I love you.
I know you don’t want to hear it,
But it makes no sense to pretend I don’t.
I miss you with all of me.
Things get easier,
but will never with you.
I’ll cry less,
But the pain will still be there.
The love we shared and gave to each other
Will always remain in my heart forever.

The Reminders I Find

broken20heart1After we broke up I found traces of you for months. I’ve always since wondered how could someone lose so many bobby pins? Did you leave them all over on purpose for me to find? My wounds have healed and the reminders I find bring up good memories now. K.D.


The things
that mattered
Were broken
and shattered
One by one.
From the song “Walking Away” by Jonny Lang

Love Me Full Out

broken20heart1What you did broke my heart into a thousand pieces and getting past that took a long time. Eventually I realized it was okay to love with all my heart and soul. However, the next time I won’t waste my love on someone unworthy who can’t love me full out in return. L.L.


What is love,
if not the
of all sanity,
all dignity?
