Broken Hearts Lie in Your Wake

Broken hearts lie in your wake
From the conquests that you make
From the promises you fake
Broken hearts lie in your wake

Broken love lies at your feet
You entice with tasty treat
Make impossible retreat
Broken love lies at your feet

Broken needs lie at your door
Faces of those wanting more
Those who thought love was in store
Broken needs lie at your door

Broken dreams lie in your hand
Your love trickled through like sand
Every wish seemed noble, grand
Broken dreams lie in your hand

Forgiveness anoints your head
For parts of you that lie dead
For your twisted heart has bled
Forgiveness anoints your head

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    Excellent write....I been broken many times, but somehow I always put myself back together, I believe you do the same. I see Betty Boop is also your alter-ego...take a peek at "Nun Betty on Trial....will make you smile. Hugs

    ;) Will head there right now, my dear. Yes...we all are broken at times, but we get back together...the cracks show, but hey....no one is complete. Hugs!

    It's sad when someone hurts people with their indifference. I like how you added the last stanza ... it was an unexpected ending to your poem. Yes, there's always forgiveness. Hope you're back on top of the world again soon.

    Thank you, Becca. We are all broken....some of us just don't realize it, and some of us do. That is the sad part. I've never claimed to be whole.....At least I have that to my credit. Not there yet.....but hopefully soon

    Thanks, Gail....All we do in life that is harmful to others flows out of our own brokenness....We need to extend grace where possible. Thanks for the visit.
