Second-hand Love


"the truth is, i gave my heart a long time ago, my whole heart. and i never really got it back."


When he left,
he took away with him
some young girl's
heart and dreams.


She hold on to a promise
that he'll be back
some years later
and no such luck.


Her world turns into a whirlwind
with no direction to go
she lost her heart
and the man she used to know.


She loved another man
and promised to be with him
but did not expect
the man who took her heart came.


He begged another chance
to start anew
but the girl just took his heart
and let it go.

Sometimes that is the only way to find peace. We have to let go in order to find happiness. Bless you my dear and well done as always.

Good for you, unknown! You'll find in life you'll have to let go over and over again. You've picked yourself up by the bootstraps and are moving on. Eventually you'll find what you seek. Just don't compromise yourself. I have a motto I live by, "if it feels good, do it. If it doesn't, don't. And when it stops, quit."

Be true to yourself. You have so much to offer! Don't waste it on those who don't see or want to squash your heart and soul!

You can never really go back to the person you once were, and your heart can never be exactly the same again. But you do evolve, as does your heart, and so that sense of loss becomes a new part of a new you. And hopefully the new you can be a better you than the old you:-)

Voted up and beautiful:-)

Bravewarrior, thank you reading and leaving this message. finding and loving another when your heart still belongs to someone else is very hard..

but if your heart is always crushed, then it's time; and always love yourself.

Have a nice day :)

We can never go back, it would not be the same and a part of you would always hurt and resent the way he broke your heart. Time to move on and find love with someone who truly loves you.

Excellent poem that expressed your feelings well.

Voted up and beautiful. Sometimes letting go is the hardest thing but best if we do it so another love can find us and give us what we need.

Oh, so beautiful! Smart girl!

"If you love something, set it free- if it comes back to you, it was meant to be."...I don't really believe in this quote because it could just be too late when there is the new someone worth keeping.

yeah.. if you love one another, dont let go, but rather hold on. because some things fade away in time, even love. a person cannot wait forever for something that you are not sure of.

i have read a quote before, it says: absence makes the heart grow fonder but too much of it makes the heart find another. hehehe

thanks for the comment Coffee :)
