My passive ugly truth

I created this poem to teach passive voice in an ESL class in Chile  (English as a foreign 
language)

**************************************************************************
My heart was broken,
By the sound of your eyes
No words will be spoken,
I will be wise.

Your expressions destroyed my hopes,
My trust is vanished, 
You have put me against the ropes
by the end of the day, I will be banished.

Give me one moment to believe
Now my thoughts are awaken
I know you have to leave,
I will be forsaken.
