A free verse poem about love and heartbreak. Dedicated to all the heart broken people out there.

Marcus Jameson

Eli Manson


I tried so hard to make it right,

What did I ever do wrong to make us fall apart?

I hear your soft whispers as I lay on my bed

The tingling sensation when you kissed my lips

Your warm embrace lingers in my skin

As I try to hug myself to sleep

I think of you as I close my eyes

My heart feels a pang as I remember last night


It was a cold rainy day,

Dark and lonely

When you suddenly said it was over

Tears streamed down my face

My heart shattered into pieces

I asked you so many times, “what’s wrong?”

But you never answered,

And instead, you left me dumbfounded,

Staring at you as you walk away

Taking my heart and letting me fall into the darkest pit of my misery


Agony took over me

My heart was aching for you

Four years wasted

and I never knew the reason why


Look at me

eye to eye

Tell me what happened to us,

was it me or you?

Or have you began to notice that the world was against us?


I cry my eyes out as I feel my soul being tortured with excruciating pain,

you're my soulmate, 

and I can't live without you.

Can you feel what I feel?

Being away from you is intolerable


So come back, 

please come back

or I will break to pieces 

and you'll be too late when you realise that you should've never left me...


I'm not complete without you

It may sound idiotic,

but trust me, it's true.
