Heart Break Poetry: Burned Letter

Updated on June 19, 2013
Source


You hollowed out my heart,

Picked these walls clean,

You took and you took

Despite my murderous screams.


You devoured me whole,

Stole my mortal soul.

Then you left me

Broken

Bitter

And Hollow.


A million pieces,

Of what used to be a man

Scattered like dust

Across desolate land.

A puzzle,

A riddle,

A question without an answer,

A virulent plague

To spread through the world

Like cancer.


But what you failed to recognize,

What your eyes failed to see,

Was that I had survived

Despite your attempt

To destroy my humanity


Now here I am

Bigger

Stronger

Better

And the only memory left of you

Is this soon to be burned

      You can't ever let someone feel like they were able to destroy.

      Very emotive, Phil. I can sense the anguish of the persona writing. Ending does not disappoint, great poem!

      I suspect the departed person thought that love should be as fresh as it once was. Frankly there is no human being made whose dopamine, serotonin, etc., dump into the blood stream as profusely as they did at that first partial second of love's dawning. If that is what she was looking for, she can repeat it but will have to do it over and over again until she realizes that real love is more than just that. Keep whole and find a gal you can treat as a queen. That gal won't find that anywhere else either.

      Thanks Midget, I wanted to steer it into a positive direction

      Perspycacious you are quite right on that. I had to learn that lesson myself, but eventually everyone grows up.

      I definitely connected with this poem. I wish I could describe my feelings when reading this, but all those past pains came back and I felt nothing. I have moved on and this reminded me of that. Great great poem. THUMBS UP!

      We are charred with fire, and instead of burning to ashes we become fortified.
