You Told Me You Were Different

broken20heart11What has become of us? Well, I know what has become of you: an old lover pulled you back and you gave in for one night. No matter how much I love you, I can’t be with you any more. I feel violated and where trust once was is only suspicion. H.M.

I knew that this would happen
that you would break my heart.
It was stupid of me not to listen;
I was stupid from the start.
You told me you were different…

The Life that Is Waiting

broken20heart11You’re just someone, not my only one. It took a while for me to mellow into to that frame of mind. I will always be grateful for what we shared and the memories I have of us. For a time we were special together. Finally that is enough. K.E.

We must be willing to let go
of the life we have planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

Grow Up

broken20heart11Your job kept you on the road so much I lost track of who you are and you seemed like stranger. Even when you were in town you spent most of your time hanging out with your buddies. Now you’re surprised I am breaking up with you? Grow up! K.L.

In the Night I Pray

broken20heart11With a depth I’ve not felt never before or since, I loved you. Our time brought highs and joy when we were new then crushed and tore me as we fell apart. We damaged each other so much. Love could not survive. I wonder if feelings so deep will ever come again.  W.L.

Love entered in my heart one day
A sad, unwelcome guest.
But when it begged that it might stay
I let it stay and rest.
It broke my nights with sorrowing
It filled my heart with fears
And, when my soul was prone to sing
It filled my eyes with tears.
But…now that it has gone its way
I miss the dear ole pain.
And, sometimes, in the night I pray
That love might come again.

Your Future Partner’s Prayer

broken20heart11A friend made me feel better when he said, “Even though you failed in love and don’t have a special “someone” now, don’t worry! It’s nothing but your future partner’s prayer to keep you single until the two of you meet”. E.O.

Love is blind and love can be foolish.
Our heart doesn’t always love
the right people at the right time.
Sometimes we hurt the ones
that love us the most
and sometimes we love the ones
who don’t deserve our love at all.

Never Be the Same Again

broken20heart11Each day it feels like another piece of me dies. I am becoming numb. I’m just not right without you. It feels as if a necessary part of my body and soul has been removed, and while I am still breathing and alive, I will never be the same again. M.E.

I see what you did,
you ripped apart a heart
that was wanting to love you.
You tore a man who was so adamant
in his pursuit to love you.
Now he will never be the same,
he will always shy away from
fully trusting a woman with all of his heart.
Travis Martin

If Life Was a Circus

broken20heart11If loving you with all my heart was enough to change you, we’d be living happily together. Things don’t work that way though. No matter how much I wish you’d behave differently and be faithful, I don’t think you ever will. I’ve had enough of this carnival side-show. F.L.

Crying_like_Pierrot_the_Clown_by_specu_loosIf life was a circus
I’d be your clown,
I’d get on your pony,
ride your merry-go-round.
If life was a circus
under your big tent,
make love with you forever
we’d be heaven spent.
If life was a circus
in your arena we would play,
with each other
forever, and a day.
But life is not a circus
I am not a clown,
all I can ever do
is watch your merry-go-round.
Heather Burns

Too Often

broken20heart11My pride got the best of me. Anger blinded me over something near meaningless. You said you were tired of me beating you up emotionally over the smallest things and left. I thought you’d come back. It’s been weeks now and I don’t know where you are. L.S.

Too often we don’t realize what we have until it’s gone.
Too often we’re too stubborn to say “I’m sorry, I was wrong.”
Too often It seems we hurt the ones closest to our hearts.
And we let the most foolish things tear us apart.

Like a Puzzle

broken20heart11When you love someone, they become part of you. Maybe that’s why it hurts so much that you’re gone and there’s hole where my feelings for you are stored. I’m in no big hurry to try to fill that space because I know it will take a long time to stop loving you. B.E.

Heart-puzzle

Love is like a puzzle.
When you’re in love, all the pieces fit
but when your heart gets broken,
it takes a while to get everything back together.

Living Separate Lives

broken20heart11We fell in love and married a year later. The first two years were wonderful. Then the kids came. I know we both love them deeply, but that’s when the disconnect began. Now a few years after meeting, we’re living separate lives divorced. What happened? D.S.
