|) Imperfectly beating
In your perfect chest
Is the body of
Your broken heart

||) Screaming

With hundreds of emotions

Pain and Sorrow

Remorse and regret

Lies a half of your broken heart

|||) The other half

Filled with desires

Desires of revenge

Not wanting to shed mercy

On the dame that made

Your broken heart

|V) Off beat in pain

With the sound

So similar to

The shattering of glass

With shards flying to and fro

Crash Bash, Crash Bash, Crash Bash

This is the sound, of your broken heart

Lying in bed wondering the same

Thoughts, over and over

“Why did she do it?”

“Will she take me back?”

“Does she still love me?”

This is the curious side

To your aching broken heart
V|) Acting all indecisive

In what to do in life

Move on happily

Or ignore all creatures

Is the difficult choice

Following your broken heart

V||) Grades are slipping

Coaches are questioning

Parents are asking

These are the things

That don’t really matter

School, sports, family

When your dealing with

Your swollen broken heart

V|||) You know she doesn’t matter

But now what do you know?

Certainly not where to go,

Or even what to do

These are the still indecisive

Choices you have to make

While dealing with

The pain of your broken heart

|X) When you call

When she doesn’t answer

When you leave a message

When she doesn’t call back

These are your hopes

Being destroyed in your broken heart

At the sight

Of her as she struts by

Leaves you feeling full of sorrow

Also full of rage

So you continue by

As she feeds

Your already full Broken Heart

X|) Your best friend warned you

She said your heart would break

Acting stupid, you didn’t listen

So now all she says, over and over

Is I told you so

You should have listened to me

You were foretold

About your broken heart

X||) Your heart is still aching

She’s still ignoring you

Your heart is still broken

X|||) It has been days

She hasn’t called

It must really be over

Your gonna have to be a man

Your gonna have to live

With what you have

What you have

Is your healing, broken heart

I actually know the writer of this poem personally, and it is a girl. She was writing about her best friend, which is a guy, who just had his heart broken and she decided to use that as an inspiration.

I totally love you (as a writer)! That was awesome! And so heartfelt. I've been going through the same thing, except from a girl's perspective and I haven't quite been able to describe it, but you did it and I love you for that! I'll remember you when you get all your poems published in a book and I'll be the first to buy it!
