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.

Really great poem! It's very relatable. If you have time, could you please comment on my poem called Struggle?

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!!

I have just gone through something like this, and it is extremely painful. Your poem is so forlorn and beautiful.

I can definately sympathize with this poem. I have just been through an experience like this, and it is extremely painful. Your poem is beautiful and moving.
