Take my Heart and Break It

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 enjoyed the truth in this.  It's always great when someone writes about a topic most can relate too.  Keep it up!

As awesome as this poem is, it does not have the rhyme scheme of a sonnet. It is a great free-verse, though.

THIS WAS AMAZING!! Although I thought sonnets were 4 stanzas of 4 and a couplet summarizing? I also believe "dreamt" is incorrect spelling. Dreampt is correct. Other than that; WELL DONE!!
