How You Do It

Sometimes I wonder how you do it.
How can you sit back and watch yourself hurt someone so bad and not feel any guilt.
You say things to me, about me, or behind me.
And you still look at me the same way.
With those eyes of green searching for the answers inside me.
You want to know everything.
You want to know how I feel
And if I am truly hurting inside.
You just have to ask.
And I'll tell you.
I'll tell you that you were the first boy I ever loved.
You were the one who took my heart and locked it inside of yours.
You placed my fingers in between each of yours.
And in the end,
You took that heart and you shredded it to pieces.
You could have just ripped it in half.
Then it would be easier to put back together.
But instead,
You tore it.
Piece by piece you shredded it.
And no one can fix it.
No one wants to.
Because they look at what you made me.
A girl with permanent tears painted on my face.
I am now just an empty void.
There is no desire to want to love again.
Because now there is only the fear of ruining
what I have tried so hard to build up.

So touching! I can relay 100%. There isn't anything as painful as a broken heart. I'm praying for strength daily and am trusting that my wounded heart will be mended. I absolutely love this poem, thanks for sharing!

Well I have been dating my boyfriend for 2 years May 18, 2010 was the date that we started dating. I have been with him ever since I was 18. We have been through thick and thin together, we went to Colorado for a year and back home.. our plan was to be together for 66 years!! But those people that you think are your friends, but stab you in the back when you're not looking, tend to always find a way to not only turn on you but ruin your life, your dream and you future... and my boyfriend was not just a boyfriend he was also my one and only friend/true love!!! Now my heart will always be scared from that... thanks to those people we all think are friends and they are really Satan in disguise!!!!! I'll never let anyone that close to me again for the fact being hurt, it actually hurts... and I'll always feel that pain...

This is exactly what happened to me, a boy I love doesn't like me and I love him. He said he would love to go out with me but he really doesn't want to. He tore my heart into pieces. I'm sending this poem to him I love it

I'm in a bad spot in my life right now. I'm in love with some one and have been for years. He says he loves me and we hang out every night. But still he wants to see other people. I know I should just let him go, but my love for him keeps me from doing so. Every time he tells me he is spending time with another girl I die a little inside. This poem expresses exactly how I feel every time he tells me "I'm busy" because I know what he's busy doing... And yet I still can't give him up.
