A Broken Heart

You broke my heart into a million pieces
With a blunt pick axe that never ceases
Like a stuck record jumps it’s groove
To repeat the blow to somehow prove
That you hold my heart for all our time
So I’m yours forever, what was my crime

The blow feels hard each time it falls
Each day goes by it’s meeting calls
It hits when I think of you and ill prepared
Please from this torment let me be spared
The only hope is for you to see
Our fate together we should be

I’m told that time will sort this out
My heart will hear another shout
I hear it all it’s Wisdom’s case
But I can’t give what’s held in place
You hold my red bit good and proper
Will I ever love another

UNBEALIABLE! I WISH I COULD WRITE THIS POEM! I AM REALLY STUNNED AND SPEECHLESS, …YOU ARE REALLY A TALENTED ONE, I LIKE THE WAY PUT THE THINGS TOGETHER, YOUR POEM IS A MIND STORMING ONE ……BUT VERY SOOTHING TO THE SOUL, I LIKE IT AND I LIKE TO YOU MY NEW POEMS, ESPECIALLY ‘’I WANT TO DIE’’
I love it, it short and sweet and to the point. I too wonder about the same thing and I think taht we who feel this way can do something about it, we can create a change. I was on my way to University and I was just thinking about what is going on in Somalia and I asked myself 'Are we really humans if we lack humanity, and how can I call myself a human when I am watching fellow humanking suffering before my very eyes. It would be nice if all the writers got together and started organising some form aid beyond words, I would like to think that it is possible. anyway your poems inspire great ideas
A short poem with such a conclusive idea about global comunities. As the great ideas, the strong essences lie in small bottles..Cristina Teodor
Short but effective..well said. SG
