Desert of Broken Hearts


On the insides
walls are tumbling down
all defenses are worthless
on the outside
tears only show

You scarred my heart
and damaged it beyond repair
you were my world
my whole universe
until you left me stranded
in a desert of broken hearts
and a ocean of despair

You threw away the key to my
heart
you have lost my love to a
empty abyss

    A broken heart well described. When love is lost, everything seems to tumble.

    empty abyss
    A deep sigh! (Report) Reply

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
