You Broke My Heart Not Hardly

You thought, you broke my heart when you walked out
Well old friend, have I got some news for you?
It stung a bit, of that there is no doubt
But honey, I was anything but blue

The day you left, I bought a Cadillac
I bought myself some diamonds for some bling
My love train kept on rollin' down the track
And all I left behind was big smoke rings

See, girls like you, give women a bad name
And guys like me, look out, for girls like you
The only thing you got from me was shame
Now, you're the one who's left singing the blues

You were a pane of glass right from the start
And by the way, I never had a heart

Very true. We can only accept what is and move on. And of course you'll always see my smiling face because I'm probably your biggest fan Danny :) xoxo

Thank you, Joseph for your vote of confidence. I have my doubts it will place at all. Lol

Oh, Daniel, some men seem to overcome loss of a relationship more quickly than women. Now I think I understand why: they are kind to themselves and not wrapped in the pain of the past. You do have a heart, Daniel. I've seen it in your poetry. Hugs, Carolyn

Thank you, Mrs Carolyn:) I think it affects each one differently, men and women. I suppose it all depends on how much one has invested. Unfortunately, some put in more than others, they are the ones who suffer.

There is always pain in breakups, Mrs Eve. We should accept it and move on. Each day is a new day:)

Hey Danny boy, you're right this has got country lyrics written all over it. I would say use this as a base, it needs obviously a chorus, and another verse, but man! you've got some great bones to work with here to make a hit song.

I was thinking more along the lines of a blues song. I could whip up a chorus in a minute. Thanks John:)

That was ice cold at the end, Daniel. But, this poem told it like it is. Straight truth for real. Powerful and gritty poem, my friend. Love always.

Freddie, I never understood why people want to be with someone who doesn't want to be with them. Nothing lasts forever! Thanks for the visit my friend:)

This is perfect! I can't stand people who are "a pane of glass"! lol All, I can say is "she must have been beautiful"... on the outside. So, good for you...even though I know you are definitely "a nice guy". Know what I mean, Jellybean?

No sir. I haven't been on a date since my divorce 5 years ago. Thank you for the chuckle, Wingman:)

Good one Daniel. This made me smile. It reminds me of the old saying Never let them see you cry. It hurts a lot less if you just let them go. Great job. Love it. God Bless, JB
