Ode To A Broken Heart - Poem by Dawn Springs

Stop, just please stop
everytime I let my guard go
everytime I put my walls down
you take my heart just so
and my head spins around; bliss
suddenly with no warning you drop it
vanished were the hopes of the perfect kiss
down it goes in a dark pit
shatters; shattering; a million pieces
but I don't blame you
yet you oppress my heart, its true
so easily you move on
carefully stepping over the broken pieces
so as not to prick yourself
but I fall on the shattered glass
broken; bleeding; pricked
you don't even look back
moving swiftly to your next victim
I desperately try to grasp the remains
wondering if i'll ever love again
engulfed in this sea of endless pain
in vain I struggle to forget
wishing it was you that I never met
reluctant to give my heart out now

Poet's Notes about The Poem

this poem is inspired by my best friend, first love, and first heart break (all the same person)
you broke me but also made me stronger
I found the strength to move on but still im scared of love
thank you and also not really
you'll always be one of those pieces of my heart; however broken

    A very emotionally poignant poem, very intense, honest, open, it is really great! It's good you have become stronger and moved on, you are very courageous. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
