What Happened?

broken20heart11I’m over our breakup and have moved on, but still don’t understand how could you be so kind and loving and then be the exact opposite? I thought you loved me. Then you hated me. Did I do something to deserve that? What happened? What went wrong?

I don’t know what it was
that made me love you.
Or what it was that made you
hate me the way you do.
I remember what you said
And I remember what you did
And it never made sense.
You were there
And then you weren’t.
You had my heart
And I had yours
You said it was love
So I stayed.
Maybe it was too much;
Maybe it wasn’t enough.
But I will never forget
The way you made me feel;
Like I was everything,
And I will never forget
The way you made me feel
Like I was nothing
Antonio M. Arce

Never Again

broken20heart11It was this time of year when we met. Those months were the happiest days of my life. I have stopped believing we will get back together, but can’t seem to stop my heart from wishing it would happen. Never again will I be able to give as much as I gave you. L.L.

You’re the one who broke my heart,
you’re the reason my world fell apart.
You’re the one who made me cry,
yet I still love you and I don’t know why.

Once In a Lifetime

broken20heart11Being with you was not the first time I have fallen in love, but it was the deepest plunge my heart has ever made. I’ll never again be able to give as much again as I gave you. Once in a life time only comes one time. E.W.

She’d cried over a broken heart before.
She knew what that felt like,
and it didn’t feel like this.
Her heart felt
not so much broken
as just …
empty…

Won’t Be the Same

broken20heart1I was blind and didn’t see it coming. Saying you were leaving to be with someone else was like being punched in the stomach. Stunned and feeling like I wanted to throw up, I watched you leave. Now comes the pain. I won’t be the same for a long time. L.H.

Looking For a Way Out

broken20heart1In front of me you often flirt with other guys. Sometimes you go on and on. In some twisted way, my jealousy seems to make you feel better about yourself. Keep on hurting me like this and one day soon I won’t get jealous. I’ll just leave… permanently. R.Y.

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.

A Pitiful Apology

broken20heart1I fell in love with you. You broke my heart. You said you were sorry and I took you back. Then you broke my heart again and I forgave you again. Now you’ve deeply hurt me a third time and made a pitiful apology. I don’t believe you anymore. Leave me alone.

Break my heart one,
Same on you
Break my heart twice,
Shame on me.
Break my heart a third time,
I will forget about you.

Slayer of the Love

broken20heart1Everyone thinks I’m fine. I’m the only one that knows something is slowly dying inside me. Every day it decays a little more, festering into an unrecognizable form. You left me behind and alone to be the slayer of the love  that once lived in my heart for you. E.L.

Love is a great poet,
its resources are inexhaustible,
but if the end it has in view
is not obtained,
it feels weary and remains silent.
Giacomo Casanov

The Pain Still Lingers

broken20heart1The pain of having a broken heart isn’t enough to kill me, but is enough to keep me from living again. I’m stuck between a broken heart and one that doesn’t feel. Alternating between is agony. I want to get over you and I don’t at the same time. T.P.

People have scars in all sorts of place;
like secret road maps of their personal histories;
diagrams of their old wounds.
Most of our wounds heal,
leaving nothing behind but a scar.
But some of them don’t.
Some wounds we carry with us
everywhere and through
the cut’s long gone,
the pain still lingers.
Meredith Grey

This Wound in My Heart

broken20heart1Loving you devastated me. Everything you said was lies to get what you wanted. Now it’s clear to see you used me to climb the corporate ladder. As good as I am at spotting ‘users’, you fooled me. The only thing I’m left with is this wound in my heart. D.D.

Sad-woman

In life we don’t always get what we want;
hopes and dreams get washed away so easily,
hearts are broken, chances are missed,
and we always seem to end up
right back where we started.
From “Colliding Worlds”
By Rebecah McManus

How Can I?

broken20heart1It hurts most when the person who made you feel special yesterday makes you feel unwanted today. One of the worst feelings in the world is having to doubt something you thought was unquestionable. I’m lost and don’t know what to do. R.P.

What do you do when the one person
you want comfort from the most
is the one who caused your pain?
How can I want so desperately for him
to wrap me up in his arms but also
want so much for him to leave me alone?
