A broken heart
Is like a cracked vase
Affection can't stay
Love left without a trace

Hurt runs deep
It needs healing & space
But true love prevails!
So powerful, you embrace

Only You Can Make Me Happy
Only you can make me happy
When I am sad, drowning in tears; 
My eyes just glow, sparkle, and smile, 
As loneliness just disappears.

During distress and life's anguish; 
My mind has just been comforted,...Read More

What can I say to ease your sorrow? In a lifetime of words I’ve spoken…how do I find the right ones…
to ease a heart that’s broken?

To loathe is to commit a passion with
your nightmare, your nemesis, your own Hyde.
To dance the dance of hate, each side by side.
It is then, dear, perhaps the greatest myth
that they are free, the ones who plead the...Read More

Far away
Beyond the Sun
I hear the aching beats
Of a broken heart
The umbilical cord has ripped apart
Scattered through the desert
the milky drops are glittering
In your trail your abandoned „baby “
is crawling and howling
Remained but an empty

hate love

Broken heart,
Tears dripping,
Red eyes,
Wet handkerchief
Lost love

Rhetorical questions
Sweet sad memories
Broken promises
Can bare the pain

Unfulfilled wishes
Cursing all day
Wishing 4 amnesia
I hate love

No reason to live
Lord take my breath away
She was my purpose

It’s sad that, sometimes, when love happens
It happens to one and not two
One falls madly into the joyful passion
While the other is merely amused

When this happens, hearts are broken
Though they will likely heal
It’s no stretch of the imagination to say

When the storm of sorrow surges with dark rain,
the banks of mind breaks, eroded by dense despair,
the river of affliction in full flood doesn’t spare
the broken heart drowning in the dungeon of pain.

"White the Lowest Sky"

Cries the Lowest Sky 
tear drops fed as manna

face raised to ultra Light

The 3

there cries the lowest Sky
the voice that ever hears you

Broken is worth fixing
She seems a bit uneasy, she would rather be alone.
Not because she's shy,
But because the right attention hasn't been shown.

She's hungry for good company, but fears what they'll think.
She is broken, but broken is worth fixing.

She's aware the life she's...Read More

Of lilac scented afternoons
Spent sitting on the front porch swing

Just between mercy and amazing grace
She listened intently to my every thought

While the dislodged pain flows on tear
I stand in the raging river,
dragging sands of grief in wafer
that seems to not lie still ever,
raked from river bed like sliver
of broken heart when it quivers.

A new start for a broken heart
No clouds only bluish skies
Since the day you caught my eyes
Making my heart flutter fast
Forgetting my painful past
Of the men before you who
Left me alone, sad and blue
Lying, cheating and much more
But you evened up the score
Erasing all the memories
