A Broken Heart - Poem by Judy Hill

You never told me that I
was just a cheap thrill,
You made me think what
we had was real.

When we were together
you brought my day joy,
I didn’t know you only
thought of me as a toy.

Making love to you
brought tears to my eyes,
It felt so special I didn’t
know your emotions for
me were lies.

Like a fool I told you I
loved you and you ran
with it,
You crumbled my heart
up and threw it away
like it wasn’t fit.

One rip to the heart and
another to the soul,
I never knew you could
be so cold.

You lied to me without even
saying a word,
My ears didn’t hear it, but
my body and heart heard.

I thought you were different
that’s why I gave myself to
Now I’m sitting here feeling
so stupid and blue.

My broken heart one day will
I hope real soon you will
know how it feels.

    |Hello Judy, very good move to attract attention to your work as the site is becoming overcrowded a bit. This is a wonderful piece and you handle the theme with a great deal of skill. It is good that you draw attention to your work as you seem to recognise your own talent. (Report) Reply

    Judy, Hi Its Peter
    I am flattered that you ask me to rate your poems. I have been writing for 21 years
    Broken Heart was my first read
    I like the imagery, the emotion was very real, I could really step into your place of feeling. Excellent work
    I find if you write about something that you care about wheather it be romantic, trials in your life, even how you made it through the trials it makes for good work because it is real.
