Heartbreak Poem

Lost Without You

A Broken Heart

© Jenna
How do I mend a broken heart?
My entire world has fallen apart.
How do I find hope in a brand new day,
when the one I love has gone away?
My mind overflows with memories of you,
of all that we've shared, all that we knew.
I long for your touch and your warm embrace,
the look in your eyes, the smile on your face.
My dreams are filled with your soft gentle kiss,
I wake and cry for all that I miss.
How do I mend a broken heart,
when my one true love and I are apart?
My heart knows to love only you, it won't let go, what do I do?
Our moments together were precious and few,
but I cherished them all more than you knew.
I love you my angel and always will,
I loved you then and I love you still.

  • you seem to know how I feel, it has been a year since I seen my love, I let him go, because that was what he really wanted, or so I thought I let him go, I miss him, I need him to this day, I don't know how I'm going to make it without him. it has been a year this month, and yet I still wonder if I am the one he is thinking of, I love him more than words can say, but he will never know because he is happy in another way

  • He's a marine. we both made mistakes when he decided to call me names. I kissed someone else but it meant nothing. He kept begging me to give him another chance but I was too stubborn. and when I did decide to give him and us another chance he didn't want it. So now he's with someone else and I'm here alone still trying. This poem describes anything and everything about him. It describes who he is and always will be to me

  • Wow, I really don't know what to say.. I think that you put it in perspective for a lot of girls. Honestly, guys are dumb. And they don't realize that we have feelings and when they break our hearts it really does hurt. It's really not something we just bi-pass. Some advice to any guys who read this: think before you act.. Because you could end up alone, while the girl you once had, has someone else...

  • I fell in love and lost my boyfriend of 8 months to another woman. I find out 2 weeks later I'm pregnant and I keep the baby. I'm married and I'm still in love with this other man. Some call me crazy but I can't help how I feel. I'm so heart broken I can't get over it. This happened 19 years ago. I still love you Joe

  • That's was I'm feeling with my ex I miss him so much but he has moved on and I'm happy for him but I can't forget the times we were together the moments we shared. Even if they were good or bad I love him so much but the problem in I'm in a new relationship have been for a while now and I'm falling in love with him. I don't know what to do cuz I love him and he loves me but my ex tells me that he loves and misses me all the time. This poem is great whoever wrote it did a great job I think I may use it but change it up a little.

  • After reading this I actually teared up. My (idk anymore) girlfriend (we've broken up twice in the past 2 months) and I are always there for each other but, when her dad or brother pisses her off, she takes it out on me. When she's upset or crying, she thinks I'm trying to hurt her. I always try to convince her that she's just upset and thinking I'm doing these things. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. My heart breaks a little more each time we argue and stuff. She's finally getting to me but, I can't help it. I love her with my whole heart even if she's wearing it down. I can't turn away..

  • I want to thank you for these words, cause they describe exactly what I'm going through..
    I just broke up with my fiancι.. I still can't find the reason for what happen, I think about every moment we passed together, about every kiss, every hug, every plan we had, and I find myself drowning in my tears.. hopeless, lonely, and sad, these are the perfect words to describe me right now.. the most important thing right now, is that I know I'm not alone at this, there are people like me.. we are here for each other.. thanks again.

  • I'm deeply in love with him, but the timing situation is not so good for the relationship. I met him one year ago in my work place, when I'm with him I enjoy the moment like the world is going to end, because I don't know when will be the next time we will be together. I love Faize

  • Hi, my name is Desiree and my story is about my broken heart. My best friend Jordan doesn't care about our friendship at all. I have so many questions to ask him like: why are you doing this to me? I am so broken and I don't think it's going to work out anymore because Jordan doesn't care about me or our friendship. And that's my story.

  • I am in love with William, we met in art class...he was a senior I was a sophomore. Meeting him changed my entire life. He helped me through everything and truely became my most cherished friend. When he graduated we grew closer. I decided to graduate early and we were going to move in together. We did we were living in our temporary home and the day before we were going to go live in his house in San Antonio I went to go visit my parents. When I got there my father took my cell phone and keys. He told me I was living in sin. I regret every fight we ever had. I rarely get to see him and because of all the threats my parents made to him he feels it impossible to be with me. It leaves me feeling a little worthless. Nonetheless I am still trying. I am almost 18 now and I am hoping to move into an apartment and do things on my own so nobody can tell us we can't be together. Pray for me guys and never give up on that person you love.

  • Today I saw his picture 4 years later my feelings towards him are the same. I have faith that one day I will be put in his path and him in mine, I long for that day and fear it. In life people come into your life for brief moments, seasons, and if your lucky a life time. We had a moment in 2002, a season in 2008, and hopefully a life time is coming.

  • I hate love because I think this is sort of sheer lie. Love is a reciprocal relationship. It is a very bad experience that you love a boy but he can't understand you.
    "I hate LOVE."

  • I have just lost my wife, she died of a heart attack, suddenly my life is empty, a big void has opened up before me and I have no idea how I am going to fill it. We have been together for 50 years and I loved her so much, and will until I die. Why is life so cruel?
    The poem describes the way I feel, the way I hurt, the way I long for her touch, her embrace, her kiss.
    I'm afraid this broken heart will never mend.

  • This make me feel sad and worry when I reflect back to my good all days with my TRUE LOVE. By the time she left me I was like a death log laying across the river bank.
    During the tide I was lying there but nothing came and talked to me I thought why and I wonder but it was true Love.

  • This poems describes exactly how I am feeling. I have had to finish with the man I love after six years, because he is married and I have come to realize that he will never leave his wife. I still love him so much and miss him terribly but I cannot put myself through all this pain time and time again. I have just emailed the poem to him and hope it goes deep into his soul and realizes what a big mistake he is making my staying in a love-less marriage just because its the easiest option.

  • Well first of all I love the poem lies it is truly a masterpiece. And I can relate because I was in a relationship with someone for a lot of years. And believe me I tried to make it work. But he never had anytime for me at all he would put his friends before me. HE ALWAYS LET ME DOWN. In every single way you can imagine I was the one always left in tears with my heart in pieces in my hand. I ONLY EXISTED when he wanted me to exist when it was convenient for him. I JUST ONE DAY SAID ENOUGH IS ENOUGH I got tired of all the lies cheating and so on. I MEAN DON'T GET ME WRONG I'M A PRETTY WOMEN EXOTIC SEXY INTELLIGENT AND SO ON. BUT AM SO GLAD HE IS NOT A PART OF MY LIFE NO MORE.

  • I'm printing this poem off!. After 2 years and 2 months I can still dream of my ex. I'll see her eyes, her cute nose, her smile, and her beautiful blonde hair when I close my eyes. I wonder everyday if she's thinking of me or if she missing me. Some days I tell myself that we well be together again and that one day this pain will be gone.

  • This poem healed me, now I know that I'm not alone, I love this guy, he is my everything. We've been together for 7 years , BUT I have to let him go, he lied to me, cheated on me with 3 girls and has a kid with one of them, abused me, took me for granted BUT still I love him unconditionally. I'm thinking about him everyday! I don't trust him anymore, wishing him all the best hoping one day I will find a man who will appreciate me the way I am ! Love you always!
