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.

Well written but a truly great poet can be strong and vulnerable. Poetry is not always about ryhming but the truth of one's heart.

This is such a great poem. Not only does it apply to something that everyday teens can have, but it kind of puts a whole perspective on life in a nutshell. Things like this, love or not, are always going to happen in life and our feelings are really effected along the way. I'm sure a lot of people can relate to the feeling you perfectly capture. Awesome job!

You did great personaly i'm not old enough to date let alone BF/GF so i don't know quite what your talking about, I'm just a shadow. Quick thought shouldn't  sonnets be in Iambic Pentamater, its a pain but it's worth it. Again brillant emotion but make sure you keep the mechanics :)
