Treasure Island

Walter Krijthe

(September 2nd,1966 / Groningen, The Netherlands)

A heart breaks easier alone


A heart breaks easier alone
When no one sees you crying
When no one notices at all
That inside you are dying

A heart breaks easier alone
When they all think you're crazy
That when you crawl back in your bed
The whole world thinks you're lazy

A heart breaks easier alone
And there's no way to mend it
To stop the heart from breaking more
You simply have to end it

A heart breaks easier alone
Without a love to heal it
And finally the breaking's done
When you no longer feel it

    This is exceptionally well written. I agree that this poem is easy to read. It's clarity and flow are wonderful. If a poem is written from the ego, you usually can tell. This one seems to come straight from the heart. (Report) Reply

    Walter,

    This was very easy to read. Simply and beautifully written. I prefer simple poetry rather than ones you have to look up half the words in the dictionary. I really enjoyed this and of course every word is true.

    Kind regards

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
