Healing Rain: A Sad Love Poem About Heartbreak

By Injete Chesoni

I thought my tears would make you love me again,
I thought my tears would fall on the roots of our love
and nourish it like rain.
I thought my tears would pierce your heart,
and help us to make a brand new start.

I thought my tears would make you feel my anguish and pain,
and draw you back into my arms again.
I thought my tears would flow with yours
and create for us a pool of love.
I thought my tears were heavenly showers
with magical healing powers.
A trickling sent from the heavens above,
That would fill our hearts with joy and love.

So I cried when you left me
To ease my pain,
I cried when you left me
To bring you back into my arms again,
I cried when you left me,
Because I thought that tears were healing rain.
But I found out that sometimes they are not,
They are just tears and searing pain.

3. Love can sometimes be magic. But magic can sometimes... just be an illusion. - Javan

"If he makes you cry, why don't you just leave him."
I paused and turned around...and i looked back to the moon and said,
"Why would you ever leave your sky?" - Anonymous

Hi Moyra, I'm a 16 year old girl, with far to many problems, my parents once told me it would be hard, but not this hard, see the problem is, there is this guy, we got to know each other, and we started dating, he was the first boy i gave everything to, it was hard but i did, then we broke up, because he tried to tell me that he didn't believe in love, i had no other choice but to cry, and cry and cry, him and i both have dated after that incident, and even when i dated, i still loved him more than anything. sometimes he even talks about how he kisses and shows efection with other girls, that tears me up, and he can't say that he doesn't relise it, because he does. Moyra, i know I'm asking a lot, but i need something to get him off my mind, i can't handle being in love like this, especially when he doesn't love me back, thanks a lot. - emotionally and internally depressed, [Danikka MacLean]"

Hi Danikka, I am so sorry to hear about the pain you are in. I know it sounds cliché but the pain will ease with time. Unfortunately, most of us will experience at least one heartbreak in our lifetime. And at the time that we go through it we think the pain will never end but believe me it does. So give yourself some time to heal and stay away from this guy it does not sound like he cares about you.

Hi "Ubani" thanks for the vote and encouraging comment :-) As a writer or artist one of the greatest achievements I believe is to succeed in evoking emotion in your audience. So I am honored my poem produced that effect. Perhaps because this particular poem was written from a place of authentic emotion.

Hi! I just stubble over this. I loved the quote, “I am tired of trying, I am tired of crying, I know I have been smiling but inside I am dying – Anonymous”. It describes me a lot right now. This is going to be a bit stupid, but, past five months, I have been abroad since I decided to take a year abroad in Israel of all countries. In the beginning I was happy because I was over heartbreak, but after meeting this guy everything went downhill. I feel used and lied to. One time I met him I told him that I have been a bit upset because of what he did to me, then he said no no, don’t be upset. That made me actually feel not good at all. I cried and I cried. After a while I felt better and met another boy. He was good to me. He talked to me almost every day and one time he said that he had missed me when we met. Then he stopped talking to me, and after I stupidly drunked texted him that I wanted to meet him again. I felt really stupid, so I wrote the next day that I am sorry and all that. He replied that he wants to meet and that he is going to find a day that fits. That gave me a bit of hope. That never happened, we kept talking, and I stupidly suggested to meet before I go back home for my two months break, he replied yeah sure. One week before I was going home I knew that I have been used again. Now I am crying every night and I really don’t want to go back to Israel. My friends told me to stop caring, and that I should stop crying and go on with my life. During daytime I smile and play happy, but drying nighttime I am heartbroken. That’s the reason why I can relate to the quote. I don’t cry over him, I am crying because I feel used and lied to. I feel that I am different person.

Hi Cathrine sorry for what you are going through right now.You may want to look at how you are relating to the boys in your life and when the next one comes along do things differently and don't let him use you. Also there is a famous saying "we have to kiss many frogs before we meet our prince." Keep these two things in mind and don't stop believing in love but also don't allow men to use and abuse you. By the way different is not bad as we grow older and life throws things our way we ultimately change sometimes for the better. With age we grow wiser and hopefully don't make the same mistakes.

“I saw your face but not your heart”

“I loved the way you made me smile but hate the way you made me cry. Because of you I learn to stay on the safe side so I won’t get hurt .You left me in this world so alone and afraid to trust not even me but every male around me .So sweet innocent and pure I was, then you came along making me into a woman . Every girl’s wedding dream but did it in a very wrong, hard and painful way before I can even say I do. My silent language of grief my tears were shown to you so many times for you to acknowledge what my heart and tongue cannot express pure sadness and pain which I felt inside but it did nothing to you for it was weakness in your eyes for all you had for me was care and no love. I wonder if I made a mistake and place our names in a heart when we first met instead of a circle since hearts are constantly broken or it was just life’s way of telling me it isn’t meant to be . Every day I questioned myself why didn’t you think of me? Instead of just thinking of no one else but yourself and made my heart cried so much only you and God can give me the answer. Daily I prayed for you to come back or to just let me learn to open my heart to another well love again but I don’t even know how or where to start from all because of you it’s like I gave you all of my love .I’m ashamed of my life now thus it’s so empty without you .What I have noticed is that everything I do whether its places I go, music I listen to it all gives a flash back of you but it isn’t the songs that made me sad when I hear them and the places I go aren’t what made me sad it’s the one behind the memories. I regret ever meeting you at times and giving you the satisfaction that I will always be here waiting on you .Waiting for you is like waiting for rain in a drought useless and disappointing. You made me think I had you when I never really did but my regrets and mistakes are and will always be my memories made. Mmmmm can’t believe you took everything I had and left me with a broken heart though you said I will never leave no matter what and you’ll come when I need you. Now I’m calling my heart out but you are no way to be seen. I have sent it to heaven my broken heart cause there is where it should be sent to heal since no one can fix a broken heart but can try to bandage the damage. I’m still waiting in the cold for my heart to return from heaven but at the end of the day I can’t stop loving you and I know deep down I will never find another like you and with you is where I rather be but we are both stuck where we are. Strange isn’t it how much you hurt me but still I have a place in my heart to love you’ instead of having pure hatred.Those were the finally word's i wrote to the one who broke my heart why wont he come back ?????? and i love ur poems moyra

Hi Moyra

Thank you so much for your help. I haven't cried for a while now. I feel so much better after reading what you wrote. I am so happy that I learn from my mistakes.

I talked to the guy I talked about and we both had an honest talk. I told him that he was a jerk and that I felt used and that he didn't have any respect for me. He told me that we met about 6 months ago and we still keep in touch, and that's called respect. He also said that he respect me and always will respect me. I feel better after having the talk with him because I got to say what I felt, but he still makes me a bit uncomfortable. He asked me if I wanted to meet him when I come back but I think that I am going to be really uncomfortable but on the other hand I want to meet him again. If I meet him again everything is going to be different and I am just going to take it as it comes. One of my friends actually forbade me to see him again.

Hi "Del," your pain comes through so clearly and having been there I know what it's like. Even if it does not seem like it is, the power to open yourself up to love again is in your hands not his, take back your power and give yourself another chance at love. Not all men are the same and hopefully you will find another man who will love you better and will be deserving of your love. Heartbreak is a part of life but it is up to us if we will allow it to define us and destroy all our chances at future love. Hard as it is, learn to love again and keep praying for God to heal you.

Hi Cathrine glad to help you and happy to hear you are feeling better. Good luck and when the time comes decide what you think is best for you in terms of meeting him. Sometimes what I use to help me decide is "what do I have to lose," by taking a specific path versus "what I may potentially gain." If the potential gain outweighs the loss then do it and be prepared to deal with the consequences. However, realize when it comes to matters of the heart we are often blinded and many times if those who care about you like friends and family warn you about a person (and where it is legitimate serious concerns) try and listen to them they can often see what you can't because you are blinded by love.
