Can a Broken Heart be Healed?

Updated on June 17, 2017
Faith Reaper profile image

When Theresa writes poetry, the inspiration comes from her or her family's true life experiences, which results in dramatic poetry.


"There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love." (1 John 4:18)

A Dedication from My Heart to Your Heart


This is dedicated to all those very lovely friends here in HP Town whose loving hearts have been stomped on by those who are just out to collect as many hearts as they are able, despite the pain inflicted and left behind. I have read the most heartrending poetry about how true hearts have been broken into pieces. All of these lovely persons (both men and women) are such caring and loving persons who deserve to be treated better and know of that true love from another.



Enjoy this very dramatic video! "Who do you think you are?"

That Emotional Aching Inside Your Chest


One can experience a “broken heart” when one is deeply disappointed or grieved over a life circumstance when we lose a loved one, whether a spouse, child or even a beloved pet.


Then there is the other matter of when one’s heart is completely shattered to pieces by someone we thought truly loved us, but it was just a big lie. And to further the agony that person attempts to come back into our lives and continue to further damage our already broken hearts.


Not a Pretty Sight

What does Your Picture of Love Look Like?


Does your picture of love look like this?

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

If your picture of love looks a lot different than that of the above-quoted scripture of what true love really looks like, then there may be cause for concern.


Let's Peek Inside Your Heart and See What is Going On . . . Well Maybe not too much Peeking : )

After my morning devotion and time spent with Him, these words were burned into my heart, and so I share them with you . . .


Stabbed in the heart
Stabbed in the heart

Poem ~ Anguish of Heart


Oh, my lovely darlings,


Your hearts wrench within you


With emotional flooding


Mourning in complaint


Weary from the treachery and ingratitude of men


Longing to hide


Needing rest, so that you may know of that quietness


Without contortion from your sorrowful soul


Exceeding in pain


When your heart like wax, melts


You are utterly crushed


Sighing is your daily consumption


And your groans pour out of you


You are numb


You shake and are very saddened


You are completely devastated


Crying out loudly for your heart is in turmoil


You are broken beyond measure


For that net was spread for your feet


And made you desolate


Your eyes fail from weeping


Because of this, your hearts are faint


And your eyes grow dim


As you were smitten unto excess


So much pain, no words to describe the feeling


Your distress and hurting seem too great to bear


Grasping for words to describe the depth of the pain


You are paralyzed, suffering acutely


Unable to think clearly


Allow Your Hearts to Fly free on the Wings of a Dove

“The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit (Psalms 34:18).”


“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalms 147:3)”


Poem ~ Hope for the Heart ~


Oh, my lovely darlings,


I desire to bring hope to your hurting hearts


My hope is that my prayer is a salve for every sore,


And a relief to the spirit under every burden


That you change your focus


Away from your own pain


To the Lord’s love,


Thereby, reminding of God’s faithfulness


May the men and women in your lives be the wisest and best


Those who covet peace and quietness


Oh, my lovely darlings,


Fly away and be at rest as on the wings of a dove!

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied." (Matthew 5:6)


"You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book." (Psalm 56:8)



There Will Always be Something Missing . . .


Even when we are in a good relationship and all is going well in our lives . . . in love, family, friends, finances, etc., there will always be that hole inside of us that, no matter what, seems to never be satisfied . . . and, as for me, that hole was filled with having that personal and intimate relationship with Him, who is truly the only One who can satisfy in this life. This has just been my experience.


He places your tears in a bottle. Now, what does that mean? God knows your sorrows and struggles. He knows every tear that you shed. If your God knows and cares for the birds of the air and all other living creatures, He certainly knows and cares about your situation.


I love you all and my heart aches terribly when I know your heart is broken.

      Hi Faith, wow, I love this hub. You're so right! God is the missing piece of the puzzle. I like the scripture passages you cited on the broken hearted. The song is very appropriate too. Don't hate the player, hate the game! Let's see what's going on inside my heart? Last time I checked it was still beating. Lol. I take after my mother who raised me to be a strong woman. Don't make someone a priority when you're only an option in theirs. voted up+++ hugs and blessings my sweet friend.

      Dear Faith, as usual I admire your heartfelt devotion to your faith, and am so happy for you that it brings you so much joy each day. I think we all try for happiness, in spite of the trials that life can bring, and it is a great reminder that we can carry on and find true delight in life by appreciating a Higher Power every day. In this way the nasty deeds of others can be reduced to just that - nasty deeds instead of heart breakers.

      Hi Dearest Vicki,

      Always a pleasure when you visit! Thank you so much for your insight and wonderful comments which add much to the subject matter of this hub.

      Yes, we must know who we are and not allow others to continually attempt to come back to harm us.

      My heart aches for all those I know who are suffering from a broken heart at the hands of another who is really clueless as to the harm he or she is causing by being so selfish and uncaring along their pathways in this life.

      I wanted to attempt to convey a little hope for those whose hearts are broken, as it is truly a painful ordeal to have to endure.

      Blessings, Faith Reaper

      Oh dear, Mh,

      I thought you were away again, but now I see you have written some hubs!!! I have not seen any of your notifications, but I remember last week that I was having a problem of about half of my hub email going to spam. Once I checked it, there were hundred in my spam email that were not spam! So, I had reset my email setting to fix it, which I thought it did, but I just checked it again, and there are HP emals in it again!

      I will catch up to your writings, and I am actually glad that is all it is in lieu of you being so sick once again and having to go to the hospital : )

      Hugs and love, Faith Reaper

      Hi Dearest Bill,

      Always a blessing when you stop by to read! Thank you so much for your kind comments.

      Actually, I have been fortunate to not have a broken heart in the love area, as I was married at the young age of 19 and still married. However, it is through my relationship with my Lord that I am able to feel compassion and relate to those whose hearts have been shattered. When I read the heartrending poetry here of my friends who hearts continue to be shattered by those unworthy of their love, my heart breaks into a million pieces for them.

      Now, I have had other relationships in my life that did cause some pangs to my heart in the areas of where friends have betrayed me, and so, of course, that is a painful thing to have to endure no doubt.

      Blessings to you this lovely day, Faith Reaper

      Faith, you are always on top with your beautiful hubs of forgiveness and love . beautiful images.. awesome words of inspiration and as always never give up hope for finding true love . When it is meant to be... it will happen. Most people do jump at the first sign of love not realizing that it is lust and when it fades... they only then realize that it was not love and begin to search again.

      Love and hugs for this awesome hub.. my sweet.

      Thank you so much for your wonderful comments here this day.

      My heart really breaks for those whose hearts are broken into pieces by those who really do not care whether they break hearts. I know of so many loving and beautiful persons right here in HP Town, who deserve to be loved and respected they way they should be, and I pray that God places the right person in their lives who will do just that, love them unconditionally and true.

      Hugs and love to you from southern USA, Faith Reaper

      Faith Reaper,

      You have one of the most beautiful hearts! I'm never disappointed in reading your hubs. 1 Corinthians is my utmost favorite description of what unconditional love really is because it applies straight across the board from romantic love to platonic love.

      I will also say that I am glad I am not feeling emotional today or listening to that dramatic first song might've made me cry!

      Probably most of us have been hurt by love sometime and it is something we never forget but at least we can tap into that memory for a few good poems. lol Or a few hundred!

      You are so lucky to have such a wonderful husband to never cause you heartache. God has blessed you indeed.

      Beautiful hub! ^

      Hi Dearest shanmarie,

      Aw, thank you so much for such lovely words here this day! You have a precious heart to leave such wonderful comments. Yes, 1 Corinthians just about covers it all, as God is certainly in the love business, as He is divine love, that true agape love no doubt!

      This first song is so very dramatic. Chrintina Perri is my new favorite artist, well, she is pretty new to me, and I just love all of her songs. There is just something about her voice.

      I am glad you are not in one of those places today where you would cry, so that is a good thing. However, crying is good to0, to let it out. If one were in an emotional state, that song will bring on the tears or either get one fired up to not take any mess from any of those collectors of hearts!

      Hugs and love to you always, Faith Reaper

      Hi dearest Jackie,

      Yes, most of us have, in some form or fashion, and maybe not by a lover, experience some type of heartache. Well, I would not go as far to say, just because I have been married my whole life :) there hasn't been any heartaches or maybe I should say headaches : ), which is normal in any marriage, but we just work through it and go on.

      Yes, I believe there are probably a couple of thousand or more brokenhearted poems out there in this world that have been written by those with broken hearts no doubt!

      I am glad you think this is a beautiful hub.

      Hugs, Faith Reaper

      Hi My Dearest Colin,

      I always feel good when you arrive at my humble hubspace because you have that special way about you when you comment and make each one feel very special : )

      Thank you for leaving such lovely comments as always. You're the best!

      Well, I know Miss Tiffy and Gabriel would not have it any other way . . . to not be sleeping to your excellent taste in music playing while they sleep, so long as you are there . . . yes, must be love : ) that unconditional kind!

      Sounds so lovely up there up on the lake with the full moon, with the sound of the rain (it you turn down your music just a tad) and your lovely little furry family right there next to you!

      I hope you have a very lovely Sunday too . . . I will keep your heart for just a bit and return it safe and sound . . .

      It is 11:09 p.m. here.

      Hugs and love to you, Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel from southern USA, Faith Reaper

      Hi Faith

      What a beautiful hub. Full of genuine sentiment and love. We should all take a lesson from this and be thankful for the very good things that we have in our lives.

      It is all too easy to forget the good when we are struggling but we never have to look to far to find it.

      Thanks for writing and sharing. Voted up and shared.

      It is always so sad and wrenching to see someone suffer at the hands of another. Though our hearts are not fragile they can be broken so easily. Your poem, your words, the photos, simply touching and compassionate. You show the love of the Lord in all you do dear one.

      My father used to say every relationship should have three people, in his words, "you, me and God".

      God bless.

      Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

      Beautiful, by all definitions, Faith Reaper,

      Oh my goodness, for one, I had to scroll for ten minutes to get down here, I kid you not! :D Obviously your loving and compassionate heart draws people here anyway, but I believe you really struck a chord with so many with this one. Not only have most people probably experienced heartache, but we all want to know what someone cares and loves us; that is what you do. I've never seen anyone so uplifting and caring for others as you. The things you say come from your heart and it is obvious, you're not offering just words but your heart with them. This is just simply an amazing gesture and my emotions are all over the place with it; so touching and so needed!

      That was the first time I'd ever heard that Christina Perri song and I loved everything about it... I'm so glad you brought that to my attention!

      The poetry itself was beautiful and enough to bring a tear to my eye. I really believe you have the whole concept of love down, from your love of other people, your Faith, your loved ones, and honestly, love for yourself, which I'm learning to realize is necessary for all other love to truly exist and thrive.

      You are such a wonderful example of how to live!

      Up and sharing of course!

      Hugs and love, Cat

      Hi Dearest Cat,

      Always a good day when you grace my hub space with your presence!

      Thank you so much for the lovely comments. You are always so kind and genuine.

      I have just recently discovered Christina Perri myself. I just really love all of her songs so far that I have heard. She has a unique voice and her videos are always dramatic.

      Yes, to truly love another, one must have that love inside of oneself and be able to love oneself too, which is not an easy thing to do, until we look at ourselves at our sweet Lord God does, then we realize just how beautiful we are in His eyes. Always remember, just how beautiful you are in His eyes. You are more valuable than any of the rarest gems on this planet. You truly are, so you should never settle, as you truly deserve one who will love you for you, just as you are, just as He does!

      I am blessed to have met you via HP and to know you as a writer too!

      I appreciate the vote up and share.

      Oh, wow, thank you so much for leaving such lovely comments.

      Yes, good hearts are hard to find these days it seems, but they are out there no doubt! My heart just breaks for all of the lovely persons here who have suffered the pain of a broken heart at the hands of one who does not seem to care about such broken hearts.

      All of us deserve to know of that true love, agape love.

      I can tell just by your comment that you are a wonderful writer no doubt.

      Oh yes, I remember that horrible pain caused by someone you thought would never-ever hurt you. Sadly, or maybe fortunately, a healed heart is harder and tougher. So true: Even in the happiest relationships something is not perfect. But only because of our own egoistic expectations. The more we have, the more we want. Humans are inherent greedy, and so often arrogant, believing that others, including God, should realize all their hopes and dreams.

      Beautiful message. Thank you, Faith :)

      Hi Dearest Martie,

      Yes, you may be right on that "fortunately" part, being our hearts do heal and get tougher for sure!!!

      So true, once again, there is no such "perfect" relationship and being married my whole life, I know that fact : ) he he he

      As marriage, even to the right person, is not always a picnic no doubt, but we just have to work things out through communication, which is key!

      Thank you for your lovely words here and those that add much to the subject of this hub too.

      Dearest Faith, How beautiful is this hub! There is a hole .. a God shaped void which only He can fill. So many chase after finding their soul mate and are crushed and pained in the process - never understanding that God completes and makes one whole.

      I love your heart sweet friend and it shines as you pour out compassion and it is life giving.

      I liked this so much "May the men and women in your lives be the wisest and best. Those who covet peace and quietness." Surrounding our lives with those who are wise and covet peace and quietness is to protect our hearts from use and abuse.

      Thanks for a beautiful beautiful hub.

      So glad to see you here this day. You are a really busy lady no doubt and I am proud that you are working on your new book and website, how exciting!

      Yes, He can heal the brokenhearted indeed!

      What a lovely gesture and I am very humbled that you would even think of me and using my poems on your website. The only thing is that HP will say that it is duplicate material if you do it in that manner, and your HP friend's poems will get unpublished by HP, as they will see it on another site. However, you are certainly welcome to use a link to a poem that is located at the very bottom of hubs down in the gray area where it states HubPages . . . about us . . . link, and if you click on that link and copy the link you may do so on your site, then all people will have to do is click on the link and it will take one to the hubber's poem on HubPages. You can write something on your website like "Sharing poetry by so-and-so on HubPages and then link it, just like when we share to Facebook, it is the link that shows up then people can click on the link and read their poetry if they so choose to do so.

      God bless you and I will pray for you much success with your book and website. As He tells us in His Word, "Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart."

Both of us prayed for the same things, a true love, children, ect. Every one has been answered. We've been together for 12 years now and we still act like we just met yesterday. If you mean it from the heart and soul, it shall be answered. When you find that special someone, you'll know it. I've been very blessed, sometimes blind, but I am human.

      Hello Faith,

      What a beautiful and touching hub, both sad and inspiring. It could have also been called "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted".

      I saw one of your comments on a hub by the wonderful Nellieanna and had to check your profile. Glad I did. 1 Corithians 13: 4-7 is one of my favorite Biblical quotes. To write things so touching as you have only comes from someone who has experienced heartbreak themselves. keep up the good work. Now I have to check out more of your hubs, and please if you have the time take a peak at mine 'Love and Other Muses".

      Hello Jodah,

      So nice to meet you. Oh, yes, Nellieanna is a rare gem on this planet, actually she is more beautiful than the rarest of gems on this planet, as is her poetry.

      Yes, that would have been a good title indeed too. 1 Corinthians 13 : 4-7 is one of my favorites as well.

      Thank you for taking the time to read and leave such generous comments. I do look forward to reading some of your work. During the week, I work in the city, so I have an hour commute to and fro and am away from my home over 10 hours in the day; however, I will love to read some of your work when I arrive back home in the evening after 6:00 p.m. or later.

      Have a lovely week.

      Aw, Dear Jo,

      I am sorry that I just now saw your lovely comment here from two days ago! Thank you so much for reading. I know you are hurting now and I pray the Lord comforts you during this time of transition in your life.

      The Lord is One who we can count on during our times of distress. When we call out to Him, He hears and will relieve us of such distress.

      He is so very close to the brokenhearted.

      Hugs and love to you, sweet friend.

      Love gone wrong can be heart wrenching but for me when it did it turned to be one of the best things that ever happened in my life .

      I found a new love who made me feel loved and made me find the me that I had lost.

      Beautifully shared Faith... You are a precious soul and I am blessed to have 'met' you.

      Love and blessings and hugs on the way via those precious Angels.

      Hi Patricia, I am so glad you found the one who made you feel loved, and I understand that initial heartbreak actually being the best thing to happen so you were able to know of that true love. Thank for your kind words. You are a precious friend and a blessing to me and to many. Love, blessings, hugs and many Angels your way.

      Hello Svea,

      I am glad this was helpful to you in getting over your relationship. I appreciate the links, but HubPages does not like links in comments on hubs, so I cannot approve. However, I am so glad you did stop by to read and this article is helpful.

      Bless you

      Hi Faith, I just read your lovely comment on my new poem, "Finding Freedom," and I decided to pay your page a visit. To my surprise, I saw this article staring me right in the face. I think it was fate.

      This was a great article to encourage others who have experienced heartbreak. You are such a caring and loving person. I loved the poems you added as well. How funny is it that we picked the same song for our heartbreak hubs...."Jar of Hearts"

      Hi Lovely Missy,

      I am so happy to see you popping over to my side of HP Town to brighten my space. I am glad you found this article encouraging, especially for those who have experienced heartbreak. I am no true poet as you are, but I do appreciate your generous comment.

      Yes, as far as the "Jar of Hearts" song! I love Christina Perri's music. She is very dramatic.

      I am a late night/early evening commenter, being I work in the city during the week with an hour commute ...but I always will make my rounds in support of those I follow.

      My prayer is that those whose hearts have been broken, that they will allow healing and be open to being loved again. We must always be open to loving and allowing ourselves to be loved, although there is the risk of having our hearts broken over and over. I believe that is why we are still here, is to love and be loved.

      Hugs

      Hi dear stick : ) ...oh, no shame necessary. I am happy though to see you here on my pages again. I have been remiss in publishing anything here of late. I am well, dear heart, and thank you for asking.

      You are still the real deal of a poet as I have been reading on G+.

      Thank you for telling me you miss me and miss conversing with me ...that is sweet, Michael. I miss you too being here on HP and reading your amazing poetry in HP Town.

      Well, please don't be a stranger for too long again.

      Hugs and blessings to you

      Faith you truly have to go through heartbreak to know love a second time and when you open up your heart a second time you will find more love than you could ever imagine.

      Hi Shyron,

      Thank you for sharing a beautiful thought here. I have been married to the same man since I was 19, and I am so blessed to have never experienced such heartbreak in the area of love of spouse. But, of course, there are many other heartbreaks to endure in this life.

      I remember being so forlorn when reading of all the lovely persons here on HP who have experienced heartbreaks at the hands of one who they thought loved them.

      I appreciate the thumbs up and more and share.

      You are a doll.

      God bless you, precious one
