You Broke My Heart Contest- Finalized

Blog Posted:2/13/2017 3:40:00 PM

Results for this one are now in... 


Thank you so much to all who entered. It was an absolute pleasure to read these wonderful poems. I hope you all had fun. There were some heartbreakers in there. One made me cry, one even made me laugh and others made me feel the pain of a broken heart.

The quality of these poems was amazing and I felt a lot of effort went into them.  So well done to you all on this challenge. 

Now how's about a happy one next time round? :D
