    Sad Broken Heart Poem

    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.

    Black And White - Broken Heart Poem

    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


    Forever Sleep - Poem About Broken Heart

    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 - Sad Broken Heart Poem

    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.

    My Baby Is Worth It - Poem For Broken Heart

    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


    Our Many Never Endings - Broken Heart Poetry in English

    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.


    Love, I'm Done With You - Broken Heart Poem

    You ever wake up with your footie PJs warming
    your neck like a noose? Ever upchuck
    after a home-cooked meal? Or notice
    how the blood on the bottoms of your feet
    just won’t seem to go away? Love, it used to be
    you could retire your toothbrush for like two or three days and still
    I’d push my downy face into your neck. Used to be
    I hung on your every word. (Sing! you’d say: and I was a bird.
    Freedom! you’d say: and I never really knew what that meant,
    but liked the way it rang like a rusty bell.) Used to be. But now
    I can tell you your breath stinks and you’re full of shit.
    You have more lies about yourself than bodies
    beneath your bed. Rooting
    for the underdog. Team player. Hook,
    line and sinker. Love, you helped design the brick
    that built the walls around the castle
    in the basement of which is a vault
    inside of which is another vault
    inside of which . . . you get my point. Your tongue
    is made of honey but flicks like a snake’s. Voice
    like a bird but everyone’s ears are bleeding.
    From the inside your house shines
    and shines, but from outside you can see
    it’s built from bones. From out here it looks
    like a graveyard, and the garden’s
    all ash. And besides,
    your breath stinks. We’re through.

    Dear Love - Poem for Heart Break

    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.


    Forever - Heart Break Poetry

    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.

    Just know...

    I loved you then,

    I love you still.

    I promise

    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.

    One day

    we might get back together.

    Maybe next time will be forever.


    If I'd Never Met You - Poetry for Broken Heart

    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.

    And What Should I Do - Poetry for Heart Broken

    Watching you standing over there

    While I'm Sitting in the middle of nowhere

    Without You...

    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??

    Outside my day

    Somehow I lost my way back home

    In my empty soul I stand alone

    Without You...

    Tell Me What Should I Do??

    I Never Knew till I Lost You

    Please Tell Me What Should I Do??

    To Be With You


    I Wish - Short Poetry on Broken Heart

    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!


    A Pity, We Were Such a Good Invention - Poem about Heart Break

    They amputated

    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

    Love Is Not All - Poem About Broken Heart

    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

    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 - Broken Heart Poem

    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 - Poetry for Heart Break

    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.
