A Broken Heart

A Broken Heart For a heart to break Love must be at the stake If there is no love in the heart It will not break when you part In any previous separation It was easy to handle the situation The heart held no love to be lost With no fuss, muss or pain to cost It was different this time I fell, hook, sinker and line I really did not know It would be so hard to let go It was not like it was before After the closing of the door My heart was breaking deep inside Filling me with pain I could not hide I had fallen in love and didn’t realize Until the tears filled my eyes Now what am I to do As we are now through All that is left is to be strong Just go on living and move along My heart is bound to someday mend And I’ll try to not let it happen again Even though the love felt so good Enjoying it more than I should No more will I let love ever start To experience another Broken Heart

    Florence, I love your poem because it speaks to me deeply. And I have said the same thing, I won't let this happen again, but it did and it hurt worse the next time. I also love your poem because it flows o smoothly and the cadence just locks the reader in. Really nicely done.
