This poem was written when my heart was broken badly after being in a relationship for 5 years. I was badly disappointed and this was my way of letting go of some of the hurt and anger in my earlier stages of healing.

It’s my seventh day of loneliness

Since you broke my heart in two

The glow on my face when I thought of you

has slowly faded away


I’m bitter and cold

with no one to hold

And the depth of my pain

Is driving me insane


You were my pillar of hope

My laughter and my sunshine

My heart and my soul


My head is spinning

And my heart is aching

And there’s nothing I can do to stop thinking of you


When I’m dancing when I’m singing

Even when I’m laughing or trying to fall asleep

There you are once again, consuming my mind

I gave you my heart I gave you me

I never wanted to let you go

Why did you do this to us?

Why did you take away the one person who meant the world to me?

The one person who I thought the world of

The one person whom I thought would never break my heart


You were the first one I would call when I had good news to share

You were the one who I use to call for comfort when I was having a bad day

Now I have no one, now I am alone.

A broken heart is all I have to show after all this time.

I wish so much it wasn’t true, I wish you had been open with me, and I would never have allowed you to be swallowed in by someone else.

How could you do this to me?

How could you turn my world upside down like that?


I don’t want to feel like this

I should be happy

I deserved to be loved

To be taken care of

I deserve someone who will never hurt me like that
