A poem about when I was thinking over dumping my bf... I had never dumped someone before but I had good reason... I dumped him and it was really hard... Please comment!!



You tear my heart,

Which way,

I don’t know


Are you the kind one?

Are you the mean one?

Are you the selfish one?

Are you the player?


Who are you?

Do I know you?



I don’t

It was a mistake


Do I love you?



My heart is deprived,

Deprived from love,

For to long,

It lies to me

Like you


What to do?

What side do I take?


Are you right?

Is everyone else right?

Or is my silent heart right?


How will I do it?

We are the same

Yet so different

What to do


I want no feelings hurt

No hearts broken

But it is inevitable


You will be hurt

I will be hurt


No ones heart is safe

Not from me

Don't think the heart is lying. It's a matter of control, thinking about what's right or wrong, figuring out the truth. It's nobody's fault that things happen. As things go on, the heart may feel colder, but it gets stronger.

No one's heart is safe from you? Hey, there are people out there who can handle such things. I'm not very sure I'm making sense, but don't feel like nobody's heart is unsafe, because really, things will get better soon. :)

True... This poem is about when I was thinking about breaking up with a bf who I had heard some very bad things from... It was also the first person I had broken up with... I had always been the dumpee... kinda XD That time seems like a long time away...

The heart is beautiful, mean, can make us happy or even torture us. I like your poem, great work :)

Nice. I think it's a unique way of showing the mind asking the heart whether its right in love by asking it questions. That's what we should do, asking ourselves whether we really love or not, whom and all that, cos the mind should always take precedence over the heart, not the other way round.

This was very good! Your word choice each held their own. It said what it had to in a unique way and conveyed the message of " I can't please you if my heart is pretending to please me" - nice write!
