If you were heart-broken, how would you explain it?
What type of pain would you feel? How would it affect you? And do you think you could ever get out of it? (ever escape it?)
..well I think I just did .... in my new poem A delicate sense of scent - so I guess the answer would be through my writing - and in due time (because time and timing is everything) I would perhaps take some responsibility for my actions too - because often in any breakup there are two sides to every story ......lake erie time ontario canada 12;50 am kind of ironic I am writing this because I am listening to country' n western music - the genre of musical heartbreak ....
I have had it broken many times. From the loss of a loved one (my mum) to having a close friend pass because of AIDS. I have had my share, but what keeps me going is my faith. I believe that for every bad thing that happens in our life, for every Heart break, God in his own wisdom has something better in store.
Well, I have been heart-broken! The immediate feeling was a deep sense of numbness in the pit of my stomach while at the same time a despair for which I had no explanation. This feeling catapulted me into a ten year period of being off kilter, of not really having the capacity to function as I once did because the focus I once had on living a life of excellence was now supplanted by one of mere survival.
I am grateful for the experience, especially when I came to realize my role in it. I would not change a moment of it, though I never wish to repeat it.
I will never escape the memory of the events that caused the brokenness, but i have learned to understand them enough to see them in a positive and useful light!
It is a feeling of recovering a stone once it is thrown down the sea. You start imagining things. But the bottom-line is, its gone and the sooner you get over it, the better. Easier said than done.
I would describe it as a sickening, twisting feeling in the pit of your stomach, combined with loosing the will to live. We are all very different and our coping mechanisms are different too. Some people are more resilient than others, making them more able to cope and come to terms with their heartbreak, whilst I believe that some people never fully recover.
Expression of pain is impossible because no word is there to express the intensity.But being a writer i just feel that writing is the catharsis of mind.so to black the white pages is the explanation of pain.

i am here now and most of my poetry is about it. I lost my Prince and my heart is vacant but I am learning that I never confined my love to something as small as a heart. I love my daughter with all my soul, the very essence of me. I do not need a unwounded heart to love her or the others in my life.
I describe a broken heart as a hollow person...
I would describe a broken heart as a feeling of extreme sadness and emptiness. Time helps with the healing. Know that with each day you will be a little stronger than the last and you must move on with your life.
Id say Loneliness and guilt explains it all.When you feel like you have lost a;; you have in your world... Thats how I felt some years back when I lost the love of my life. I still feel the pain today but its not so severe as it was back then. Time is a real healer and I'd say writing and meditation are good remedies to.
I would explain being heart broken with literal and figurative terms. I'd explain how I felt emotionally and compared it to something that matched that emotion or event.
Broken hearts do heal even when the impact is devastating and hinders your daily existence. Had a good share and learned it's a part a life just like breathing. It's something normal to experience and can be turned around into joy.
The history of my life, is, that my heart has been "broken", many fold over.
Endure, bear up, learn, and go on............the best of me grows in compassion. The least of me, simply, masks the pain, and looks for joy in other things.
No life is without hardship or loss.
It depends on the person itself to explain why they were heart-broken and also on what kind of situation it is.
I myself experienced it, and it was tough. I love being alone rather than hanging out with friends. I will always reminisce those happy moments and yet, wonders about what went wrong. Do things that you don't normally do just to help you forget about everything.
In the end, it is very important to express and share these feelings of failure rather than keep it to yourself. Lessons will be the results of this failure and will help you succeed in the future.
There is no better teacher but experienced itself. Grasp it but don't hold into it. Absorb and learn to increase you wisdom. The result will be beneficial for you.
A heart-break left unacknowledged can kill you... When the heart is broken a piece or multiple pieces have been ripped away. The heart needs to be whole in order to function properly. Every part of your being is affected and each member of your "entire being" needs to heal. You can never escape it, nor will you ever forget it. What you can do is take as much time as you need to heal and make "heart repairs" that will render a stronger heart that is ready to love again.
I have been heart-broken. Truly heartbroken.
When my partner died suddenly just before my birthday, I felt as if my life were over. I wished it were over. I didn't want to eat, sleep, or breathe. I wanted to die, just like her. I thought I could never be happy again. Never love again.
I was wrong. Twelve years later, I am married to a man I love beyond all words. He knows about my former partner and how much I loved her. He understands when "a look" passes my face on her birthday, or right before mine, and he comforts me with a look, a touch, a word that allows me to have the moment of pain and then go back to living once again.
I found myself listening to Roma Downey/Phil Coulter's "Healing Angel" CD over and over. It helped. Though sad in many ways, it also was hopeful. (Until Death Do Us Part) showed me that I could mourn her death and celebrate her life and be true to myself at the same time.
You can recover from heart break. The questions is, will you want to? Only you can answer that question.
I watched him walk away knowing I would never see him again. I felt like a thousand daggers were being thrust into my chest and twisted. My breath came in short, painful gasps that left me dizzy and nauseated.
I struggled with the urge to run after him and force him to stay. My feet felt like they were encased in the cement and my heart pounded in my chest. Why was this happening to me? What could I have done differently?
Deep down I knew that the hurt would eventually disappear, but at that moment I couldn't fathom my life without him in it. I spiraled downward into a dark depression of thoughts...
Days, weeks, months later... The sun is shining again, dimly, but shining. Hope glimmers on the horizon. I wake up and realize that the pain isn't dragging me down anymore. I can survive this. I will survive this.
I swear to myself that I will be more careful in the future so I don't get hurt even though I know that when I fall again it will be as hard and as complete as before, because that is who I am. But maybe, this time, it will be forever.
Many times I was heartbroken...especially when someone you liked was into somebody else's side....how do you feel about it?..sadness creeped in..you feel dejected....the world collapsed on you...you cry but in your heart...you tend to be lonely and be alone licking your wounds..but as time passed by..you can actually still felt the pain inside you when you think of it..heartbreak never go..it stays..deep in your heart and became a secret of your heart to last a lifetime...
I think we have real trouble completely explaining our emotional state in a description of how we feel. However, we can convey how we feel by how we act. Our actions explain our internal state more clearly, sometimes, than any words.
The slowness with which rise in the morning. The flatness of our expression. The unwillingness to do social things. Avoiding those things that used to give us pleasure. The heaviness of our arms. These all show the hole in our heart. They show grief more than the word grief can convey.
it feels like you're not a complete person, part of you is missing, it died. There is a hole in your heart and nothing can fill that empty space. There is a nagging feeling in the back of your head and when you try to forget about it things just keeping reminding you of everything - a song, a sound, a movie, a small. Time will make it heel but the hole will never be filled.
With art...just like you did here. Sometimes a picture can say what I feel better than any words I could find.
It's like your soul has been smashed into a million pieces. I'm so depressed I don't eat or sleep. I've lost 50 lbs in 2 months and I haven't left the house in 14 weeks. And I have no idea how I will pull myself out of it. In one day everybody I loved and everything I believed in was gone. My life was just a lie. So I have no idea what to do next.

The pain of being heart broken eventually subsides unless there are unresolved bitter feelings, resentment and unforgiveness.
Yes,I have been heart broken.my feeling was a shivering from head to toe,then my eyes&ears become reddish .
The pain is caused by refraction heart
Is the name of the deaths or the acid never unbearable and destroy us Kalqmpelh of mass destruction
Heart break is an inexplainable feeling. Mental pain is related and connected to physical pain. One always brings the other along. One can't avoid sulking or the change of demeanor towards other people even if unintentionally. It is expected and at the same time unexpected to heal. Nothing is restorative for that kind of pain.
It is the twilight zone feeling of watching yourself fall and not being able to wake up. The overwhelming, unending and chest crushing snatch of air from your lungs. It hurts so deep that you can't cry if you aren't crying and you can't stop for hours if you are crying. It is indescribable and unbelievable. It is the lost of my mother and the lost of my son. It is the end of a marriage that started like a romance novel. It is and it will always be what makes my life hurt. It is a continual knot in the throat when waking up day after day and knowing it is reality.
Like men while walking out the war,
with infested minds of nostalgic whims,
sublimating to pass the time,
remembering not what once was,
but what might have been.
When one's heart is in fact broken the core of their being is shaken to its very foundation. All they can feel is pain. Everything that is truly beautiful hurts.
It can feel difficult to breath, be hard sleep, or to wake up, and one's physical heart may actually hurt. The mind is dull, yet at moments it is seeking to know what to do, how to live. Heartbreak is a grief that cannot be fully explained.
I am thankful that when true heartbreak hit, and the early days of its situational waves rolled over me, I knew what God says in His Word to people who trust Him as He instructs. Here is a sampling of what He offers through Jesus the Christ:
Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overflow you...
Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because He anointed Me to preach The Gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed...
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy, but I have come that they might have life, and have it abundantly.
Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock and my deliverer, My God, my rock in Whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my Stronghold.
I may write more about my experience eventually, but for now I've only posted Poems Drawn from Suffering. Books you might find interesting on the topic include, Trusting God When Life Hurts from Jerry Bridges, The Power of Suffering by J. MacArthur, Suffering and the Sovereignty of God by John Piper, and Beyond Suffering by Layton Talbert.
It is important to remember that no one gets through this fallen world untouched by trouble of one kind or another. Learning from a heartbreaking experience is a crucial part of successfully navigating the circumstances. However, a peace that truly passes understanding is offered to us by a loving God who is faithful to His Word.
If I find were heartbroken. . Then , even the fanciest of things would not attract me . The sense of sadness and loneliness would capture my heart as well as my mind . The want wit sadness of mine would let me to behave in a way which would make me talk less and interact less with people. If iwould have been heartbroken I would have liked tosit in my own company rather than sitsitting between my family and friends. The reaction to a heartbreak depends and varies from person to person. A jolly person would overcome from a heartbreak much faster than a melancholic person. So .. I would explain heartbreak as a feeling whichsshould not be avoided but should be dealt with.
I would describe it as the worst feeling ever . People will tell you that time will heal , but in most cases it does not. Although ,saying that, it is not the same for everybody.
If you were heart broken you would most likely feel alone, sad, unwanted, etc. being heart broken can either be caused by trauma, breakups, or death. Most people cut themselves when they are heartbroken -not recommending this- most people lead to suicide, finding help, drinking, or drugs. if you ever hear an alcoholic's story on why they drink so much it's usually a broken heart.
If you seek help then most definitely you could get out of being heart broken. Talking to someone will help. Talk to a school consuler, adult, support group, or your friends. they should be able to understand your pain and help you. Everyone experiences heart broken atleast once in their life. They will ever seek help or get over it. If you are truly heart broken then you shall seek help!
Its an all consuming pain in the very fiber of your being. Suffocating you from the inside out until your just a shell of the person you used to be.
Time may dull it, but it will never fully leave you.
The sense of hearkbrokenness is like that of a knife shattering your heart into millions of pieces. You try to pick up all of those sharp, pulsing fragments, but there are always one more shard that you just can't reach. It has throw itself beyond your fingers, and when you think you have it in your hand, it slips away again, like how you may try to catch clouds. It's always out of reach. With the other parts you managed to recover, you try to glue it back together with happier memories, but your mind always wonders back to those distraught, twisted thoughts, melting the glue you try so hard to make. In the end, when you've finally managed to build up your heart again, there is one piece missing, and every time when you are heartbroken, and you build it back up, another piece is always gone. When you are heartbroken for the last time, you can't go on, and you feel all your emotions slip away.
Trying to save a loosened tooth. Polishing the corners you used to ignore with renewed interest. Taking the tooth you never thought of to a church you never think to go to, and mourning meals that never were going to be
The pain felt is very much of a type that we could only feel .Other people you tell might not fell the deapth of it because they are not attached to that person t such an extent. And its all right , at the end of the day the person you loved or into whom you were so much into it, does not need a certificate or an approval of your commitment.
At that particular moment it seems rather impossible that you can ever come out of it , but as it is said "time heels everything" , you need to trust the powers and believe that you will come out of it. It might not be tomorrow , 2 days but you would. The angel role can be played if you find someone who could come and listen to you with full heart & mind , its the best thing.
Never blame yourself loving someone is never a evil and foul thing.
It is a desire, craving, crush on or attachment to something, be it family, sweetheart, car or life. Pain is the result of the attachment not being fulfilled or a reliance on the transitory, which we foolishly held on to (The illusion)
Yes, we can and we will escape or get over it. Do not see it as something bad. Experiences are necessary to help us to find our way Home.
Feeling like the whole world is making fun of you. That's how I felt at the beginning, like I was made fun of my feelings, my concern. Then, I felt like I was may be I was able only for this. Somehow, it gives a great amount of negativity.
I just listen a sad music which make me remind his memory all that time and cry aloud in my bathroom.
How many times a heart can be broken?? Some people say infinite times and some people say once.. But I say that the heart can't be broken. Because the heart never goes wrong. When we feel that we made a wrong decision by listening to our heart, we actually need to understand that the situation was wrong. Because the heart is something that never lets you go on a wrong trek. It can be ignored, abused or insulted, but as long as there is a heart alive, it will find out it's way to love. Leaving him isn't breaking his heart, breaking her trust isn't breaking her heart, because the heart is strong enough. A bad person can't break it and a good person won't break it. A bad person can hurt it and a good person can win it.. But simply, none can break it. So, there's no point of explaining a heartbreak. Rather we should move on from the hard situations and try to bounce back harder..
I literally drained few years back and I couldn't find a way out until, I made few brave decisions which seems to be impossible at that time.
The strings in my heart have strung apart. My tears are not even a close measure to how my heart aches.
I guess a broken heart can never say that they are broken heart.. they are just so.. only solace remains in being alone or being numb or asleep but the I believe those are just tests of GOD and we must learn to accept god'd command whatever happens of for our best and for the best of all those involved.. follow my hub on healing on how to fix up yourself and unlock your heart chakra crowded by grief.. let go by thanking god
Heart Broken is a state I am currently in. I feel numb all over. Everything seems so dull and lifeless. Nothing appeals to me anymore. I have no desire for substances. When I eat or drink (and that is so rare these days), it feels like dry paper going down my throat. Now a days, all I want to do is pull the covers up and simply pass away into the darkness of solitude. With no thought or care of the world around me.
The pleasures I once had: reading, writing, playing my saxophone, playing online games, hold no appeal to me anymore.
How does one bounce back from this little death? How does one start to pick up the shattered pieces of a broken heart and start living ones life again with the emptiness? How does one allow the light to shine again, when all one craves is the darkness, the emptiness, the solitude to not to feel anything?
People around me keep saying, "find something that makes you happy." But how does one do that when all the simple joys one had was centered around one person? How does one allow themselves to be open again, when the pain of a broken heart is still so fresh and painful?
Does one just find something new that they never tried, which could lead them into trouble and more stress? Or maybe something new, is something needed to help renew the spirit with in. Risk and dangers are all around us, and they come in many forms. It was a risk to give your heart to someone else, and from that risk a heart gets broken. Maybe doing something new and different is what is needed to get a person out of the little death that one feels when a heart gets broken.
So my advice to those that are experiencing a broken heart, don't focus on the joys of the past, because that will always cause you pain. Instead, find something new to do. Something that is all for you. Something that does not have the memory of your past. Use that to rebuild your spirit. Use that to rebuild your heart. Use that as a beacon of new hope, which will motivate you to get out of bed and welcome the light once more..
If you can't focus on yourself, then focus on someone or something else.. Maybe a stray kitten you might have stumble across on the road. Or volunteer your time at hospitals or schools. Doing something new for others, can also be a good way to mend a broken heart.
Even when our hearts are broken we can still show compassion to others.. Hold on to that and take a day at a time.
I would explain with; sighing, crying, not talking, being a mean sibling, running away........
I have been heart broken a couple of times now. What do I do? I write. I use metaphors to try and explain the pain that's killing me—slowly, torturously. Using up all the words to try to let it all out, hoping that each word could lessen the pain I so desperately want to get rid off. Wishing that once the poem is done, so is the crunching feeling in your chest.
I will feel like running away to a lonely place ,where I don't need to oblige anybody or talk to anybody. I will spend a lot of time with myself to get back to normal.
If I'm heart-broken,I felt in black night where I'm feel very sad and lonley
