Heartbreak sucks. No matter what you do or how you keep yourself busy, there comes a time when you just cannot take it anymore and break down. And that is totally okay. We all have gone through it, some more than once.
For those times, here are some sad poems for the broken heart that may make you feel a little better.
I feel nothing any more
I everything all the time
I hate the people who crushed my very being
I love the people who destroyed my soul
I am hollow from the hole in my chest
Yet I have a heart which can be broken
The pain kills me from the inside
Yet it comforts me
I know I am lost
But I feel at home
What hurts the most is the lie that I believe
The lie that I wish was real
So I could truly feel again
To sleep forever and forget the pain,
that once was felt with no gain;
He tried his best to no avail,
his heart could stand no more hell;
So he ran away to be forgotten,
so that he could die alone and rotten;
For his heart was gone shattered to bits,
forever lost in the deepest pits;
If you wish to find him look into the shadows of every hole,
if only to remember what you left in his chest that is now not whole.
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.
Things get broken, only to heal. Always remember that! With that being said, here are some poems for broken heart that’ll help you heal in no time.
With tears in my eyes, I’m going to write this
It’s not easy but I will try
This is my life till I die
I can’t change it
Even if I wanted
Cause my baby is all that matters
I’ll pretend if I have to
I’ll give in to whatever I need to
But seeing my baby happy is worth it
Her smile and laughter will be my heart
Her hugs will be my beat
And her love will be my goal
To achieve this ill have to keep being myself
Someone fake and unhappy
Willing to give her life
With tears and heartache, I will keep living
Even if reality sinks in like nails that on my skin are digging
You entered the bedroom and fell to your knees.
I wait the rest of my life to hear you say, I made a mistake.
Inside my chest, a mangle.
Inside yours, a deflating balloon.
You took the vacuum cleaner, the ironing board, the dish rack
and left me some lint, an iron to scorch shirts, one chipped plate.
I would like to say at least we perfected
entrances and exits, like professional stage actors
honing their craft, but even that’s a fantasy.
Mostly on TV the lions ate the hyenas
but sometimes the hyenas
formed a posse, and tore a lion up.
Occasionally you came in out of the rain
and I was glad to have you.
It’s okay to cry, let all your feeling out. Read these beautiful sad heart break poems that will make you cry and eventually, help you heal.
You dream in the language of dodging bullets and artillery fire.
New, sexy diagnoses have been added to the lexicon on your behalf.
(“charlie don't surf,” has also been added to the lexicon on your behalf).
In this home that is not our home, we have mutually exiled each other.
I walk down your street in the rain, and I do not call you.
I walk in the opposite direction of where I know to find you.
That we do not speak is louder than bombs.
There are times that missing you is a matter of procedure.
Now is not one of those times. There are times when missing you hurts.
So it comes to this, vying for geography. There is a prayer stuck in my
Douse me in gasoline, my love, and strike a match.
Let’s see this prayer ignite to high heaven.
My heart is now in so much pain.
My tears are falling like pouring rain.
I can no longer sleep a full night.
I can no longer fight.
We broke each other's hearts.
We were torn apart.
We are no longer together.
What happened to forever?
No one can save me from the dark's might.
This time there will be no light.
I'm not going to fight.
There's no reason to.
When I did fight, it was for you.
I know I never did show how I felt.
Just believe me,
every time I saw you,
my heart would melt.
I loved you then,
I love you still.
I always will.
I don't know why
we had to say our goodbyes...
but I'll love you till the day I die.
My heart is broken,
but I still have hope.
we might get back together.
Maybe next time will be forever.
If I'd never met you,
I wouldn't feel the pain
Of losing your sweet love;
I wouldn't feel insane.
But if I'd never met you,
I wouldn't know the pleasure
Of ecstasy's warm gifts
And memories to treasure.
Now moving on with life,
I force a wistful grin,
Questioning what went wrong
And wondering what might have been.
We get it, heartbreak is extremely painful. But these poems are actually too beautiful. Read these heart-touching short poems on a broken heart.
Watching you standing over there
While I'm Sitting in the middle of nowhere
What Should I Do??
Somewhere through the time
I forgot to how to make you feel safe and fine
I forgot how to Hold your Heart close to mine
Watching my memories flying away
as it all about you
So What Should I Do??
Feeling You slipping away
Outside my day
Somehow I lost my way back home
In my empty soul I stand alone
Tell Me What Should I Do??
You Screamed For me But I could hear your Sound
Yes I Guess I Let You Down
Now I Lost myself with you, and will never be found
I Let You Go
Never Knew How Much You Mean To Me
I Was Too Blind to See
I Never Knew till I Lost You
Please Tell Me What Should I Do??
To Be With You
I wish I never see you again,
I wish you will never come back,
I wish I will be much more stronger if I will ever see you again,
I wish I could kill my heart for loving you like crazy,
I wish I just knew you will leave me alone,
I wish you just stayed with me forever,
I wish all the words you said to me were true,
I wish I would have never ever wished to be with you,
I wish the first time I saw you, I could turn my back and walk away!
Your thighs off my hips.
As far as I'm concerned
They are all surgeons. All of them.
They dismantle us
Each from the other.
As far as I'm concerned
They are all engineers. All of them.
A pity. We were such a good
And loving invention.
An aeroplane made from a man and wife.
Wings and everything.
We hovered a little above the earth.
We even flew a little
If you want to ‘celebrate’ your heart getting broken, then read these famous poems for the broken heart right away.
Love is not all: it is not meat nor drink
Nor slumber nor a roof against the rain;
Nor yet a floating spar to men that sink
And rise and sink and rise and sink again;
Love can not fill the thickened lung with breath,
Nor clean the blood, nor set the fractured bone;
Yet many a man is making friends with death
Even as I speak, for lack of love alone.
It well may be that in a difficult hour,
Pinned down by pain and moaning for release,
Or nagged by want past resolution’s power,
I might be driven to sell your love for peace,
Or trade the memory of this night for food.
It well may be. I do not think I would.
When I die I want your hands on my eyes:
I want the light and the wheat of your beloved hands
to pass their freshness over me one more time
to feel the smoothness that changed my destiny.
I want you to live while I wait for you, asleep,
I want for your ears to go on hearing the wind,
for you to smell the sea that we loved together
and for you to go on walking the sand where we walked.
I want for what I love to go on living
and as for you I loved you and sang you above everything,
for that, go on flowering, flowery one,
So that you reach all that my love orders for you,
So that my shadow passes through your hair,
So that they know by this the reason for my song.
Never give all the heart, for love
Will hardly seem worth thinking of
To passionate women if it seem
Certain, and they never dream
That it fades out from kiss to kiss;
For everything that's lovely is
But a brief, dreamy, kind delight.
O never give the heart outright,
For they, for all smooth lips can say,
Have given their hearts up to the play.
And who could play it well enough
If deaf and dumb and blind with love?
He that made this knows all the cost,
For he gave all his heart and lost.
I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candlelit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.
You love me, and I find you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.
Oh plunge me deep in love—put out
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.
