Preventing A Broken Heart! - Poem by RAJ NANDY

PREVENTING A BROKEN
HEART!

Please do not come near me,
Or try to playfully hold my hand;
Only to display your infatuation,
Mistaking it for true love!
If at the end of it all, you are only
going to break my heart!

It would have been better still,
We had not met at all;
Remaning strangers as before,
And our paths had never crossed!
So please don't torment me any
more,
Please do not try to kiss and go,
If at the end of it all,
You are going to leave a broken heart!

For my heart is fragile like the mirror,
With passions and feelings of my own,
But it reflects all that is true,
A true love it can never disown!
But should some day it cracks its face,
Though a mirror gets easily replaced;
What will I do with a broken heart? !
So it is better for us to stay away,
And become like strangers from the
start!
For the mirror cannot stitch its face,
Nor can my broken heart!

    Usually poets write on broken heart, after break (I too wrote a poem Broken Heart) . But Nandy Sahab, ur angle of thought is simply marvelous......Prevention is better than cure.......Yet u show all traits of broken heart and how and what happens........This is great imagination and great novel treatment to the subject (Report) Reply

    THOUGH A MIRROR GETS EASILY REPLACED
    WHAT WILL I DO WITH MY BROKEN HEART.
    lovely. the irony today, is people shed more tears over a scratch on the car than on a broken heart. lovely poem, so simple, rhythmic and a good message.10

    For the mirror cannot stitch its face,
    Nor can my broken heart! ..........
