What Do You Do With A Broken Heart?

Updated on May 29, 2010

Mend it with a NEEDLE AND THREAD

When your heart has holes in it

When it beats slower and not as strong

How can we give it a quick fix ?

Do we trade it in for a new one ?

Fix it with a little duct tape and a screw

Watch it work until it breaks for good

Then what do we do ?

Buy new

I will take the one in the window

The display model will have to do

I can't afford the best model

But I need one now

I can't wait!

I waited to long and should of fixed it before it broke

I new it wasn't working good and missed a beat from time to time

Can I charge it


Then I will take the newest model and I don't care about the price

What do you mean my charge didn't go through

Sorry denied

I will try it again


You can call them

It is no use

I will have to try to pay cash

Sorry you don't have enough

We don't take charity here

Maybe someone else

Down the street you can try

Do you have your own store credit ?

Do you think you really have a chance to get approved ?


No I am just a salesman with a job to do and I pretend to be your friend

Just to get your business

If you can't sign on the dotted line

Then have a good day and really I wish you luck

As the door shuts behind me

I know I have to do something before it is too too late

I have the best idea

Why didn't I think of it before

I will see what made it go klunk

Then I will eliminate the problem

I can fix it

I know I can

I am the proud owner of my own heart

Let me think how did it all start

I was turned down and it made me sad

I had such great plans and they were scrapped for junk

Not gold and glitter that I had hoped

I am asked to do things

All I ask is 5 minutes to do what I have to do

You rejected me when I needed you

You want my time now or you get upset

I want so bad to hold you close

I keep trying to understand your reasons why?

You just say no

You have so much to do

I understand

Really I do

But without me where will you be

Empty inside

You will be looking for a broken heart to buy

It is not easy i have tried

Lets tighten the screw that became loose

Listen to that beat

It sounds stronger than ever

Lets dust off the parts not used

No need for open heart surgery now

The outcome now looks promising

I know with time things will be better than they have ever been

Now that you see what makes me alive and happy

My heart beats on and on

      Sonia05 My heart has been healed and I am sure it may still miss a beat from time to time but I think it is normal.I love when someone finds something that I have written so long ago and brings it to life.I feel like dancing.Dancing to the beat of a strong heart that loves again.Thanx for reliving some old thoughts.Have a fantastic day.

      Binaya.Ghimire Thanx so much. I appreciate your nice comment.I keep trying to express another side of my inner me.Sometimes I even surprise myself.Many times I am not sure where my words come from.When a few minutes before I was thinking of something else.Then an inspiration strikes and I just go with it.I hope you find all your dreams and make them happen.

      morewrite I loved your insight.You sometimes have to look farther than the problem and see how to prevent it again in the future.If you just walk away you might be dealing with the same situation one year from now and now the wiser.

      sometimes we see the signs of danger or possibilities of something breaking or falling off ... getting hurt.... or may our ownselves getting hurt by it and we tend to choose.... finding the easy way out.. such as ignoring the signs..not doing anything about it denial... finding a scape goat to place the blame on .. when in reality we all play a role in the whole scene... sometimes is too late , but then there are times when we can catch the falling object in mid air and protect it... or.. we pick up the pieces and mend them.... glue them up with crazy glue or as you say buy a new part and put it on it... dust it off and keep going and make it work.. great hub... sincerely , morewrite
