Requiem For A Broken Heart

Poem By Olivia Elise Braun

Hear the beat, the beating of my heart
I look at them at it starts, my heart beating faster and slower all at the same time
My mind couldn’t think of anything else but that their mine
Closing my eyes, thinking of their smile and just how wild they are
They make me feel so alive, the only thing I’d die for
Head against their chest, and listen to them breath, listen to their heart beat, beating for me
Taking in all they are,
How they look, how they sound, how they smell so sweet, how they feel, how they breath,
And how they fit so perfectly with me
Looking in their eyes, I find no lies…

Hear the beat, the beating of my breaking heart
I think of them and it beings, I lose my mind and fall to the floor
My heart beating faster and slower all at the same time
I listen for their beat but I hear nothing
The one thing that can, is killing me
Opening my eyes to all the lies, and how they pulled me down
I think of all they are…
A mask of who I thought, an angel with no wings, warm to the touch but dead inside,
Silent breathing not sure if their still alive…
Looking in their eyes, I find no life only lies…

Hear the beat; the beating of my broken heart
Once filled with love is now torn and scared
I look for a reason, something to believe in and find nothing
When I think of them it starts, It starts the stopping of my heart
Its empty and cold, it has no one to call its own
I think of all they are, all they where, And all I thought we could have been
And in the end they only thing they will be leaving me
Is a heart is a tattered heart that is no longer beating…

Drowning In The Past

Walking though the hallway of my mind
Looking at everything I’ve left behind
All The ghosts that refused to die
And the lingering question of Why?

Life That Was

Open your eyes to a world anew
This is the first day for a baby who never knew
That in false pretences was life explained, and that in this life the only love is pain
Those who should love you most are the ones breaking you down


Rip out my heart strings and play a bloody lullaby
Take me for all I am and tear me down inside
Let your claws shred my heart, It was already broken for the start
I gave you all I was, but it seems that it wasn’t good enough

Untitled And Unfinished

Breathing in and Breathing out, losing feeling and sight of the night
The cold air that hits my face as I look out to the fire dancing on the city
The ashes look like fireflies racing past the glass, burning out
Voices that can’t be distinguished, the words they say escape


Blood rushing down the pen, hitting the page it’s all a mistake
The story starts… with an innocent heart caught by a wicked eye
Lured with promises, the sweetest lies, building up to a bitter demise
The shadow lurking, found its pray…
