You Won't Break My Heart Again - a Poem about Love and Heartbreak

Another A.M. Poem

This is another entry from my notebook of the "A.M. Poems," ramblings, rants, and sometimes scribbles. Yet in those wee hours, there sometimes comes clarity through the rush of thoughts. Clarity that things will be different this time.

Letting go....

Celebrate National Poetry Month in April!

I'm recycling an older poem for National Poetry Month, hoping to write more original stuff soon. Happy Poetry Month! Enjoy reading poems and writing some yourself! #21

Not This Time

Guess I’m kind of numb this time—done.

I might just sit and stare.

Maybe I’m a little dazed..

But my guts are intact.


My heart may feel a small void.

I may lie awake half the night.

Maybe my throat tightens up—

But my eyes remain dry.


That yo-yo thing wears thin.

I might still think of you,

Maybe even want to go to you,

but the tie is weakening.


I can put you way behind me.

I still reminisce,

Maybe watch for your return—

But I won’t mourn for you—


And I’ll never turn back..

Not this time.

Never, never, never.

Not this time.


This song has been breaking my heart for over 20 years.

Sooner or later, we finally let go.

Then we have to be careful not to pick another one just like the last one!

So true, WillStarr. Sometimes it's harder than it seems. Thanks for stopping by.

...well actually you are a master too of achieving satisfaction - resolution - and the perfection of a great last line - and I love how it sums everything up which preceded it - through the conception of your poetic narrative - hubbravo with Jeff Beck playing in the background and Mister Gabriel sitting contently on computer chair ........

Extinct soul--writing poems is always good....

Epi--always honored to have your comments to let me know what I'm doing right! Jeff Beck playing in your background--I'm familiar. And Mister Gabriel the cat, I presume....Again, honored by all your presences!

Bravo. Next is always best.

I find this sad, and far too true.

Victoria Lynn - I am in those wee hours right now, and your poem is truly sad. So sorry you have felt the pain for so long. The song ... it was so sad, hanging on, wanting to let go, not wanting to let go, afraid to let go, afraid not to let go... so many confusing emotions all jumbled together. Blessings

Happy New Years! I agree with willstar. at some point, once you let it go they all come back swarming like honeybees. Don't fall for the bait again.
