Broken Poem by Scarborough Gypsy


Rating: 4.6

My heart sank
As I watched her go
That familiar pain returned in an instant
And I felt hollow inside
I tried hard to smile
As I waved her off
But my face gave in and crumpled
Eyes welled up with tears
Be brave, be brave
Just until she’s out of sight
Don’t let her see your smile lies
Broken on the welcome mat.

Another good one. Poetry helps with emotions. It helps even men who don't have any. Hxx

So very sad, I feel for you, having been there, many times.

So touching. This resonates with me. The poet has done a nice work reminding us that some times, we have to encourage ourselves and say 'It is well' even when we clearly know that all is not well. It's a good write.

You explain this feeling so well, I know many men have difficult showing their sadness. It's a shame really because it's OK to share that emotion. Wonderful poem, I enjoyed reading it.--Melvina--
