Feeling Broken


When I first looked into your eyes

I saw two hearts take flight into the sky

When you spoke I caught your breathe within mine

Knowing I had you by my side everything would be fine

I expressed myself with clarity and devotion

Hoping everything would glide in love motion

I guarded my heart with a wall made of metal

And you peeled it back like a flower petal by petal

Uncovered a feeling that I lost along the way

But only your hands had me floating with sway

I gave you my all in such little time

You had me all twisted and spitting love rhyme

I told you I loved you and you felt the same

You gave my life a new meaning and a beautiful name

I wanted to tell you everything in good or bad

Not ever thinking it would make me so sad

I told you because I never wanted to give you a reason

To doubt my loyalty or trust, and place with treason

My words of truth took you for granted

Never thinking that a sour taste would be planted

You say things are better off outta sight outta mind

But my heart doesn’t play or settle with that kind

The truth will set you free from any obscurity

When I defined myself worth with love and purity  

You took it to heart and fled away from me

Not knowing if you will come back and see what I see

You say we don’t see eye to eye

I laid on my couch as I heard the other line die

Hello sadness I said weeping and groaning

So here I am all alone with my heart zoning

As I closed my eyes and my conscious slipped away

Slumber took hold and led the way

That's the thing about you and me - the world is liquid under our feet.

Someone told me once "to follow your heart is wrong," and in a way, I can see why so many do not. At times, the pain is unbearable, but the thing is. the few moments when things do go our way, when we say or do something that changes either our own lives or someone else's, that is a gift beyond all else.

I know all this seems fruitless, our words, when you stomach aches, your mind cannot keep saying "what if" and perhaps, if we were someone else, perhaps more stable, perhaps more ... something...anything, to make this pain go away, but you and I have to know, much like the few in life that have made big changes, we have to be who we are - it makes us incredibly strong, my dearest friend. And just so you know, you're not alone...

I hope you know how deeply you've touched my life, and just so you know, the few people that I cherished that were the ones that once called me Billy, are all passed on to heaven now, and you've just made me cry...

We sure risk all for love. Sometimes it is glorious and sometimes it is agony. But we seem to always go back for more. Love is love and we need it. I pray your next love is true and gentle and loyal.

Great poem. You have to make note of the size of the cup before pouring your heart out. Or else you spill.

Mc, I have only been in one relationship so I forgot how to love and the size of this love cup thing so yes it did spill unfortunately. But it is all better now thank you!!

Voted up and awesome. I even shared this on my facebook page. Very touching. How brave of you to expose your raw feelings and be so transparent. Love can hurt but it can also be the most wonderful thing in this world.

something so beautiful about the pain coming to the light in our hearts. It is a journey worthy of love destined to know pain. Beautiful Bella, thank you.

It is a true gift when we can express our betrayl of our deepest emotions in poetic prose or rhyme. Your aching heart is so obvious in this piece but, I see from your comment replies to people that you feel a bit better about it now. I think all poets are either blissfully happy, or dying from a broken heart, maybe it's the only way we poets can write such deep emotions?

Good writing, and thank you for adding me and wishing you a whole lot of luck with your career.

There's nothing like a solid kick in the gut to take the wind right out of you. The cards of love are hard to read and some get played at the most inopportune time. Funny how love brings the honesty out in one person only to bring out the fear in the other. I guess our human differences cannot be explained. Nice verse, thanks for sharing and making me think. WB

Ic, thanks for the share :)I did and it kinda took me by surprise that he rather not be told but to each its own. He came back with understanding and realised that is me and accepted it!!

Ace, Yes feeling with our heart I think is better then feeling with our gut. I think??? thanks for stopping by as always sweet femme!!

Jaded??? Johnny Love??? Different pen name same person??? Any who thatnk your for always supporting my writing and my outpours its just my way of coping!!!

Daydreamer, Thank you hearts ache head aches stomach aches thats when I write my best pieces I feel!! ;)

Wayne, lol yes indeed it is eye opening as to what people would prefer than to realise but the ball is handed off and they can dribble how they please. If they cant make the free throw then Idk what to tell ya but keep practicing they'll get it one day ;)

Ahert once broen is the only way to be healed. I love this Bella, beautifully done. Touched my heart to say the least, almost sad to say you have to have been there to understand the pain, thankfully there is a way out of it all.

Most people have been down that road at some point and it's not a pleasant one, but the journey gets less bumpy by the day. Cheers

Yes, go to sleep

Then, awake a new

Stress free, is what

Your mind, needs

Forget yesterday

It's now, in

The past, don't

Let it, bring

You down, don't

Let it, make

You crash.

Yeah, interesting read...
