Take my Heart and Break It

October 11, 2009
Take my broken heart,
and rip it from my chest.
Steal away my soul,
and finally put me to rest.

I dreamt about you day and night,
and I wanted you to be mine.
You watched me in my hardest days,
and sometimes you watched me shine.

Every time I saw you,
my heart would skip a beat.
Every time you said my name,
I would spring out of my seat.

I loved you with my heart and soul.
I loved you year after year.
But something always kept us apart:
our confusion, our chances, our fear.

But now there is no hope for us,
we are doomed to be apart.
Maybe I won't feel the pain
if you completely break my heart.

I really loved this. The rhyming was perfectly and the rhythm was never skewed. Great job!

Wow, this was very moving.  The feelings you describe are so real and honest.  "Maybe I won't feel the pain if you completely break my heart" hit me the hardest of all.  You write incredibly gripping poetry. Keep it up! :)

It was very dramatic, maybe a little too much but I still liked it. It would have been better if you just made it a little more realistic. It was really beautiful and the first sentence is what caught my attention. It really pulled me in. It was very well written and hopefully you‘ll keep writing in the future! :)
