Turquoise eyes shed tears

Salty drops blend in blue sea

Tiny ripples spread

Sunset casts lone silhouette

One woman, heartbroken, blue

Short Heartbroken poem by Kellen Davis| Details |

sick circle

man is a question 
that only death can answer
love is a suggestion 
that heartbreak can follow
the soul is an idea 
that is only man's love understands

love dies in heartbroken souls
nothing follows

Come to Me

I am still shattered
you left me in shambles again
and still I hold on to hope that you will come back
I see a future where we are still together I see you running back to me dear

Friend no more deceiver your betrayal like a sharp dagger thrust through my tender skin you were the rope that saved me when tidal waves crashed on my shore now, heartbroken, will I trust again?

Short Heartbroken poem by Larry Belt| Details |

Broken Hearts

Forgotten soul
That's lost in the dark
Cannot find their way back
Without they first learn to heal
The promises that were broken
And discarded like yesterday's trash
Then and only then can they love again

Short Heartbroken poem by romeo naces| Details |

Trustworthy Anew

who I was, 
you remember, you feel it;

you touch
my heartbroken heart, you soothe it;

every time 
upon me your hands you lay,

my darkness
deep in me you cast away;

and it's you
who light my path now and then,

me I'm worth your love again!

The Heartbroken Dead


Bring flowers and lay them on all the scattered graves
The dead, O, the heartbroken dead are so sorrowful
Winds blow melancholy in the oddly twisted trees
And whispering, sigh, amongst the cold tombs
Visit respectfully then for life be grateful

Short Heartbroken poem by Megan Justus| Details |


Without him I'm nothing,
Only sad thoughts are left,
Really needing and wanting his love,
Tired of being apart when we are meant to be,
Heartbroken by Daniel,
Left so hurt,
Empty is the only feeling I have,
Soulmates now apart,
Something so amazing has ended..

Short Heartbroken poem by Ph.d Volo Von Wolfenstein| Details |

The Remaing Chapters

I fall-
tumbling silent,
as water cascading the drain,
acid rain pounding the dark 
Toronto welcome me home.
Heartbroken and raw;
the vapid shell and carcass,    
a scrap of paper, empty,
white, incomplete,
drifting silent through the 

With chapters still unwritten.

Short Heartbroken poem by Robin Maughan| Details |

Mr. Gator

Olive glitter skin sparkles below Carolina rays,
Mud Leather carefully placed as evening attire,
Mr.Gator whips his jeweled tail frantically,
Beckoning his lover to immerge.
No response.
Heartbroken, he crawls silently towards another pond.
Mating season minus a mate is not much fun!

Silken Quilt

Lugubriosity pervades Heartbroken expression 'pon maid War ready her armor clad knight The hem of silken quilt cascades Grieved like the maid who weighted prayed Doldrums linger 'til love's in sight

Short Heartbroken poem by bulinya martins| Details |

In the corridors of power

In the corridors of power
Even rats and flies have power
Every whisper, every murmur 
Carries a weighty and meaningful implications
Ladies and gentle men walk but betray
In dark corners they whisper
Busy bees after the scented flowers
Heartbroken, they slide and slip out in quietude
Like serpents driven by venom
They sit and wait for their victims

Short Heartbroken poem by Richard Tarr| Details |


You named me honey 
I called you baby 
it was love at first sight 
he thought she was impressed 
by his confident ways 
he stole her gum 
because she wouldn't pay him 
any attention from that day 
at a wrestling match 
they were destined for happiness 
5 years later he's left heartbroken 
because he couldn't keep his lips 
from a bottle and she found someone new

Little black widow

innocent i look .. 

as i strike .. venom will kill 

little black widow 


sometimes a lady can kill a part within you with just a few words 
these words strike with the power of the venom from the black widow 
leaving you heartbroken .. with alot of pain

Short Heartbroken poem by Karissa Kelley| Details |

Sepia stained tears

Sunglass water pails
The cover up, never fails
Draining water from her 
Heartbroken pools
A screaming silence
Blocked behind her 
Tinted view
With a blink, rivers flow
She is lost and all alone
Who is there ?
When there is nobody else
Beside her.

She feels
As separated as her tears
As they are falling
Hope disappears
Collecting pain
Where the hazel pools drain
In her
Sunglass water pails..

Short Heartbroken poem by Nicole Signorelli| Details |

Love Spell

A love so zealous
Can defy a thousand men

But to whom shall I give my love
If no one wants, what I have to offer him

I lay awake at night
And cry a million tears
My pillow cries back at me
Because it hears my fears

At daybreak, I lay awake
Heartbroken, yet I persevere
For I will never give up on finding him
Not for a hundred years

Today, I passed a man, who gave me a wink
I think …

Short Heartbroken poem by diane christian| Details |

Let's love one another.

do they think it's all a game
causing so much heartache and so much pain
leaving people heartbroken which may never mend
when will all this fighting ever end
we all cry the same tears
we all shed the same blood
so let's try love one another in the way that we should.

John 13:34   A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have 
loved you, that you  also love one another.

Short Heartbroken poem by chamonique knowles| Details |

the worlds symphony

plug headphones into the outlet of the planet
and what you hear is 
the heartbroken tears hitting flush cheeks
lost souls screaming from the despair and confusion
tormenting their tired hearts
you hear dreams shatter on the floor of destiny
the wishes of the unfortunate
the footsteps of those trying
and silence from those who have given up
just listen to the worlds symphony
listen to the music

Short Heartbroken poem by albert noel| Details |

Forever Broken

Drifting through the world alone,
Feeling heartbroken, feeling cold,
From afar i see a soul,
A soul like me, A soul to hold,

Time passes by I start to glow,
Your Presence warms me, I forget the cold,
My heart begins to move, to and fro,
A sense of hope begins to flow,

*But here i stand once again,
My body numb without a friend,
Ive lost you now,
And in the end,
I never had you,
Brokenhearted till journeys end.

Short Heartbroken poem by George Kidd| Details |

A River Made in Two Years

it starts off as a trickle slowly flowing
like a tear down the cheek and the pain is slowly growing

the trickle soon grows but not yet a stream
as the pain grows and the love was just a dream

a stream slowly forms and travels down the path
a path traveled by the heartbroken whose love is in the past

the stream slowly builds into a river finally flowing free
jus like the flowing river the heart is free to breath

Short Heartbroken poem by Brittany Amsden| Details |


where did you go
we were so happy
at least i thought
we texted so much
you made me smile
everyday a lot
you said you loved me
you were so happy
and that was from me
but now were not
you left me heartbroken
and emty
everything you said was a lie
its been months now
and youve moved on
but i still cant get over you
its like a sad song
and it keeps replaying
over and over again
in my head

~Brittany Amsden~

Short Heartbroken poem by Wes Cox| Details |


Everyone loves.

When love ends, we’re heartbroken.

When we work up the courage to love again,

The same thing happens, heartbroken.

We give people our trust,

Just so we end up heartbroken.

But if we don’t trust, no one trusts back.

Meaning no one cares, leaving us heartbroken.

The scars always reminding you,

Of who left you heartbroken.

One day we will know what it’s like,

To be nevermore heartbroken.

Short Heartbroken poem by Kevin Elmore| Details |


i feel down
unloved and heartbroken
false hoped and lied to
not purposfully
but none the less lied to
suicid may have crossed my mind
a few times
but never will i take actions on this
at the moment i would rather have never been 
loved at all
then to love someone who will never love you
i feel sick
sick of the way i'm being treated
i've been pushed off the edge 
shoved to the egde of the street
all because i've been unloved

Short Heartbroken poem by Joy Wellington| Details |

When Fate Decides

When fate decides to bring you love
Clouds moved to show the stars above

You the crowning jewel of the stratosphere
Your breath of incense pervade the atmosphere 

None to compare at such radiant comeliness 
If I should fail you I crave your forgiveness

I’d be heartbroken if I should ever lose you
Because I feel I am wearing the luckiest shoe

I thank fate that of all I was the chosen one
To reciprocate the love of one second to none


Short Heartbroken poem by Taquoiya Mayo| Details |


when you get your heartbroken 
it feels like you're drowning............
it's so hard to breathe
your eyes start to water and you can't think
your face is so pale and your heart is slowly but surely stopping
it's so hard for you to move
you're sinking
your last thought is he/she told me he/she loved me
you've now hit rock bottom
then right when you're at your end
someone pulls you out to tell you that you were

Short Heartbroken poem by raymond hamilton| Details |

What is love

What is love but a state of mind,
 a wish the heart makes?
Why is that  in a moment of time,
 a person's heart can break,
A passion like no other,
 a pain deeper then the ocean,
A feeling that takes another,
 to embrace such an emotion,

What is love but a false promise
 a painful demise?
In a blink of the eye,
 we fall into its disguise
Heartbroken and alone
 we all seek what the heart desires,
we seek a true love
and spark to light the soul’s fire,

Short Heartbroken poem by Renee Garrick| Details |

Heartbroken, Heartbreaking

Acid, flowing rapidly
a Niagara down my cheeks
brushed away quickly.
The clock on the wall un-moving
reading four fifty- two
stopped there to keep the fall flowing
to keep me from forgetting
since forgeting would hurt more than the memories.
April 5, 2002, 4/5/02, 4:52
The clock stopped ticking, stopped ticking away,
the ticking stopped, it had to, it sounded so much like...

April 5, 2002, heartbroken, heartbreaking
but faithfully
I will wait for you.

Night swimming

Night swimming

Deep heavy tears fall down cheeks
 Heartbroken but still beats
 Capsized in ocean cruel deceit 
 Black day as the drugs shield the suns heat
 Lonely feel  emptiness defeat
 Swim from the wreckage and I think I can sleep
Awake in darkness the sharks waiting to eat
 Survive conflict of mind over evil which smells and reeks
A hand stretched out she smiled at me so gentle and sweet
Love was also friendship from a girl’s heart bigger than I ever hoped to meet

Short Heartbroken poem by Susan O'Reilly| Details |

A Precious Glimpse

Rambling rants of a disturbed mind
genius in his day, one of a kind
fighting against some archenemy
flailing and arguing continuously
family visit heartbroken
in their eyes, no need to be spoken
on a good day he just ignores
their presence, one of his chores
on a bad day swearing and cursing
a painted smile they've been rehearsing
the man they knew is long gone
but in their soul, his memory shone
they keep hoping for a breakthrough
a precious glimpse of the person they knew

Short Heartbroken poem by Khaleel Graham| Details |

The Story Of Love

He liked her,
She liked him
He looked back,
She looked back,
But she wanted a different him,
So he looked away, sadly,
Wanting to talk to her,
But never worked up the nerve,
Never stopped thinking about her,
She kept making fun of him,
He still wanted her,
But she got the other him,
But the other he got a new her, 
She, heartbroken, looked for him,
He comforted her,
They fell in love,
He got her,
She got him,
Now they live happily ever after,
Never letting go of their love

Short Heartbroken poem by jasmine murphy| Details |

Missing your love

Burned by your heart, 
but cooled by the sun.
Looking with my eyes, 
but crying with my heart. 
Heartbreaker, yet heartbroken.
The breath taken from my lungs, 
leaves words unspoken.
Hyper off your voice,
 but calmed by your eyes. 
My love for you is like gravity, 
it cannot be defied. 
All the truth that I speak, I still feel weak...
I listened to my heart,
 and  but then heard with my ears...
Now I maybe smiling, but I'm close to tears.
Because of I'm fighting off all of these fears.

Emily's Poetic Flare

There are few people I know
Who touch me like Emily
When I read her, my tears flow
‘Cause we were both so lonely

Only two lovers had she
Both had left her heartbroken
Would she find beau number three?
Fears in poetry spoken

She called herself “Nobody”
And had scant success in life
Surely she was somebody
Her sad words cut like a knife

Ms. Dickinson achieved fame
After death had doused her flame

*Written on June 19, 2012 for Emily Dickinson
