Stupid, Stupid, Stupid

broken20heart11What happened to me? Why would I do something like that? I was weak, drank too much and spent the night with someone whose name I don’t remember. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. I have to tell you what I did and am nearly certain I’m about to lose you. C.W.

like love to hatred turned,
nor hell a fury
like a woman scorned.

Do It Myself

broken20heart11What a mess you left me in: emotionally unstable, pregnant and brokenhearted. Maybe I simply got to be too much or maybe you never loved me at all. Every step now is agony, but I’m going to make it. I’m going to be okay and I’m going to do it by myself. E.O.


…I felt like my heart had been so thoroughly
and irreparably broken that there could be
no real joy again, that at best there might
eventually be a little contentment.
Everyone wanted me to get help and rejoin life,
pick up the pieces and move on, and I tried to,
I wanted to, but I just had to lie in the mud
with my arms wrapped around myself, eyes closed,
grieving, until I didn’t have to anymore.
Anne Lamott

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

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

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.


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

Three Times!

broken20heart1Why do men run from women who try to make them happy and fight for the ones who make them sad? The biggest mistake a guy makes is thinking the girl who broke his heart once won’t do it again. You’ve broken mine three times! When will I learn?! D.C.

sendiriMust I go bound while you go free
Must I love a man who doesn’t love me
Must I be born with so little art
As to love a man who’ll break my Heart”
From “Clockwork Prince” by Cassandra Clare

It’s Your Fault

broken20heart1I don’t know which I would rather believe; that you never did care or that you eventually stopped. If you never actually loved me, it’s my fault for thinking you did. If you loved me and then stopped it’s your fault for making me think you’d always love me. H.S.


There were many ways of breaking a heart.
Stories were full of hearts being broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream,
whatever that dream might be.
Pearl Buck

Back When We Cared

broken20heart1Never 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.
Haruki Murakami

So Very Wrong

broken20heart1I didn’t really know what love truly was until you entered my heart. With all my being I gave myself to our marriage and believed we’d be together forever. I thought our love was extraordinary and you’ve never lie, cheat or hurt me. I was so very wrong.

Cheating on anyone
is deeper than people realize.
It destroys their outlook on love,
their future relationship
and peace within themselves.

My Heart Still Cries

Still I can’t fully understand why you became so mean. I did nothing give you my love and complete self. Once you had me, you suddenly seemed to not care any more. Was it I was not good enough for you, or more likely, you didn’t think you’re good enough for me? My heart still cries “why”. A.K.


Cruelty is a language
that the blind can see,
the deaf can hear,
and the heart feels forever.
Shannon L. Alder
