Broken To Pieces - Poem by Colleen Delaney

don't break me
I'm fragile you know
my heart

there may be things

but they aren't flaws
not in your eyes
I'm beautiful

How did that happen?
Your kind eyes
flattering me

you changed
you saw me differently
for the first time

you can't see my true self
blind to how I am
if this were a lie
then how?

ignorant like you were
you hurt me
broke my fragile heart

I know I'm hard to love
I've been broken many times
there must be something
wrong with me

hurting myself
killing me
I feel
dead almost

don't break me
my heart is delicate
easily broken
by your harsh words

wished to hear
sincerely you say
'I love you'

many things
I can't explain
I wish I could capture
every feeling

that could mean pain
who knows
maybe you are worth it

when we kiss
I feel happy
for the first time

but it died
that painful day
broken heart
shattered on the ground

no one to come to
no friendly glance
just pure hatred
why did it end
end like this?
