Poetry and a Broken Heart

Updated on August 8, 2012

The Act of Breaking Open

A Broken Heart.....

A broken heart has no repair as it floats aimlessly through space, detatched, desserted, desensitized, no home base, no resting place.

And what shall be said of its decayed sister womb that bled out in blazoned tears, as it was vigorously ripped from its corpse, lacking purpose all these years? Alas, just another useless part one can exist without; this I say to you, please have no doubt.

And to you my beloved children, once innocent, now casualties of war, how dare you choose to add suffering to an already festering sore! Now, this evil legacy will span another generation or more !

So, castigate me and throw me away for I can hurt no more....

    As I read your words, I think, we've all been there. Your heartfelt words bare a saddness that heals or at least over time the pain numbs.

    You are keeping some very good company here on your hubs.

    Thank you so much for dropping in to read my work. I am again humbled by writers like yourself taking the time to weigh and consider my words. Writing poetry is my passion.

    As for a broken heart, right now, there is a vacuous space where my heart once resided. I think I need a little stem cell injection, ergo my cyber estuary here on the hub.

    Welcome to the Hubs with your brilliant display of verse and words usage. You have taken a broken heart and shown how the torn throbbing ends abruptly when taken from its proper place within the soul. Mine was shattered years ago and hangs in limbo, searching for a new home. Its a pleasure to be referred to your work, welcome my poet.

    Thank you for reading my work and connecting with it.

    A broken leg, a fracture, can be placed in a cast and there is a time period in which it does heal, but a broken heart may never heal.

    Thank you for welcoming to Hubpages and for the time you took in reading my work. I look forward to reading yours as well. There aren't enough hours in the day to get through the great pieces here. This is a lovely community of writers.

    As for reading poetry or observing artwork, it is incumbent upon the viewer to connect to the art and have it draw meaning to their own lives. Some experiences are universal and parallel, while others are the impetus for us to recall memories from times gone by.

    It is true, a broken heart is hard to mend. And at times, it does seem as though one's heart is floating adrift after it's been broken. Lovely poem.

    Hi Robin,

    "And what shall be said of its decayed sister womb that bled out in blazoned tears, as it was vigorously ripped from its corpse, lacking purpose all these years? "

    Amazing imagery. This one grabbed my heart and twisted it.

    Deborah Brooks is right, you are a great poet.
