Broken

I am broken.
Irreversibly so
My pieces
barely stay together.
I am shattered
like glass,
thrown to the floor
and left there.
I am lost,
trying to fight
he left me here
all alone.
I am dying,
my heart torn out
It was in his hands
he dropped it.
I am destroyed
by something new
that was once so sweet
now seeks my demise.
I am in love
Even though
he abandoned me
Broke me.
I am broken.
It’s all his fault.
He said “Love”
He lied.
I am a stranger.
Lost to myself.
Slowly slipping.
Losing ground.
I am dead.
Nothing inside.
Demons devoured
My soul.

Beautiful poem, especially the style in which it's written (short lines and powerful statements)
