A Love Unreturned

Visions of love
crushed by a heart
made of stone.

Heartache,
 caused by darkness
leaves you all alone.

Dreams of the future
can be shattered by the
breathe of a simple word

Hearts can crumble
under the weight of a love
that's unreturned

    Truth that hurts; sometimes even physically. This is beautiful Thomas. Though a hurtful memory to some; beautiful just the same.

    I love this one. Your third and last stanza are really good. It is so true - an unreturned love can crush a heart. Thanks for sharing..... Lucilla

    Yes, hearts can be crushed. Whenever I dwell on the times my heart was crushed, I think about the hearts that I broke. I don't think that I was sorry enough then, but I am now. Funny how time and age gives you a different perspective. I love this poem because it helps you to reflect. It's wonderful Thomas. P.S.---You gave me a great day!

    This poem was beautifully written, Tom. I loved the lines of your first verse! And, I liked the simplicity of this poem, and how it gets right to the point. I can also relate so well to this, I think we have all been there before! Fantastic poem!
