Heart in pieces

Updated on September 12, 2015

Broken

She puts on a smile,

to hide her pain.

Everything to lose,

nothing to gain.

No one knows what,

she is going through.

Frozen in time,

don't know what to do.

Shattered and broken,

from head to toe.

Can't decide if she

should stay or go.

Her heart is in pieces,

scattered on the ground.

Losing the love she

thought she found.

Her eyes now see,

all the lies.

Each breath she takes,

she slowly dies.

Darkness consumes her,

in depressing tides.

Her mind and her heart,

are on opposite sides.

Her nights are lonely,

and silently long.

Nothing feels right,

everything feels wrong.

She can't move forward,

with her heart left behind.

She stands still as her

tears make her blind.

She gave all that

was hers to give.

Without her heart,

how does she live?

      A poem of sadness

      So well written

      It shatters the brainwaves

      Leaving the sadness

      In bottomless holes

      Where else could you lose a heart so effectively! Voted up.
