You ripped out my heart!

A heart in the dark, full of pain.

Dark and abandoned to wilt in it's hurt. Love lies dying!
Dark and abandoned to wilt in it's hurt. Love lies dying! | Source

A heart unwilling

Is it my eyes that betray me? I shall burn them out,

or is it my tongue, that truth it does spout?

I hold my heart upon my sleeve,

when your there I can hardly breathe.


I need not say them, but the words they betray,

the very being of my heart, oh why did I say?

I love you with all of my heart it is true,

but love is something that you have not a clue.



You stamp on my heart with your words and your lies,

my heart wants to stay but my head says, " Say your goodbyes!".

Honour is dead amongth thieves and liars,

you stole my heart and left it in the briars.


So I ignore my heart, for it also betrayed,

it led me to you, and left me enslaved.

One day I will dare once again to dream,

avoiding love like yours, that just makes me scream.

Those young unrestricted emotions seem to be hard when we are going through it don't they?

Thank you for your comment Marsei. x

Nice poem. Brought back memories of my youth! How can they not love you when you love them so much? Never understood it.

Voted up.

Bless you Mike, thank you very kindly. It is a great compliment when it comes from a writer that writes so heart felt as you do.

I will take that as a sweet meaning good, rather than a sweet poem? Seeing as the poem is anything but sweet.

Thank you very much for reading and commenting.x

True love is hard to find, and false love is all around it seems, awesome poem that expresses such a true reality, and some folks unfortunately fall for the wrong type at times for sure.

Voted up, thumbs up, and out thanks for the connect here, and when I get time I'll be following you and checking out more hubs of yours as well. Thanks Emma

It's NOT easy to ignore as you say:

"So I ignore my heart, for it also betrayed,

it led me to you, and left me enslaved."

isn't it?

By the way, beautiful poem and powerful!

SueSwan, thank you so much for reading and commenting. Good to see you and others as I feel I rarely get to spend the time I would like to, here at Hubpages.

It is a very familiar feeling for a lo of people and one that I see seems to increase.

Ddraigcoch 4 years ago from UK Author

That is extremely kind of you to say so, and I appreciate the share, thank you.

Hi Ddraigcoch

Good to see you.

"You stamp on my heart with your words and your lies,

my heart wants to stay but my head says, " Say your goodbyes!".

Words that I am sure many can relate too.

Voted up and away.

Have a good day.

I really like this. This poem really captures the trauma and raw emotions of a one-way relationship.

If your other poetry is of this calibre, you shouldn't be nervous about publishing them.

Voted Up and Beautiful. Also shared on Twitter & FB.

Thank you for even more kind words Dream On. I have many people around me who have these emotions right now, and even though these feelings are just a memory for me, I do certainly remember them.

Aww Poshcoffeeco, that is really kind of you. Wearing our heart on our sleeve can bring heart ache, but it brings happy things also, which is just as well as I can seem to do no other. Oversensitive is an understatement when concerning me!

Thank you kindly for the compliment, although I do hope it did not make you cry. I am so glad that the emotion has been conveyed well.

Wow Deni, no I really did not check out the adverts, that is very dim of Google.

I tend to write poetry very infrequently, as I get embarrassed, I have no idea why.

I appreciate your feedback as your opinion holds credit with myself. So thank you for taking the time to read this poem and commenting.

My hub Witch or Wiccan, is also a poem.x

Well this is a pleasant surprise from you. I didn't know you wrote poetry, and this piece is really nice! There are some stanzas in this that are, quite honestly, great!

Slightly off topic, do you know that there is an advertisement on this page that says: Why men pull away--10 ugly mistakes women make that ruins any chances of a relationship

What!?

What does Google not understand about this poem that says this guy was a liar and hurtful and this relationship, because of him, went to the dogs?

Nice one, here, Ddraig!

Quite the opposite now thank you Frog Prince. I am happily married,but I had to be in this position many times before I became so. Love hurts is a truly exact quote.

WOW! Something traumatic must have brought that on. What a beautiful, yet sorrowful, piece of writing. I've been in that space myself before and understand anguish.
