Sad Poem about Love

Pain Of Broken Heart

This poem is about the pain of a broken heart


© Erika
Tears of blood fall from my broken heart
I never thought we would be apart

When you held me you said "forever"
Now that you're gone I know you meant "never"

Saying you love me with that look in your eye
And that was a cold hearted lie

Your tender touch, a soft kiss
Two things about you I will miss

As I sit here thinking about you
My face is wet with tears past due

I should've cried a long time ago
But I loved you so

I know they say love is blind
But I had only you on my mind

A hurt so deep it cuts like a knife
But wounds heal and I'll go on with my life

  • This poem has deeply touched me. He was my second love after I had lost the first one who was also playing me. The second was loving. He did everything the first one did not. He would call me. Told me I was beautiful everytime we met. He loved me I thought. I didn't know it was the end of it when he called and asked to meet at our usual place. Full of joy I rushed to our spot. There he was as handsome as always waiting for me. Then it all came out. He was sorry, he could not do it anymore. He did not love me. He never had. He did not care about me at all. All that he had ever said to me was a lie. He was sorry. He left me like that with those words I walked back to the house. I was sorry for myself, again. I shall never ever in my life allow a man again. Single shall I wait upon my lord.
    A hurt so deep it cuts like a knife
    But wounds heal and I'll go on with my life

  • I love this poem, it makes me think about a boy that I fell in love with when I was only 14, but the whole time he said he loved me, he turned around and said it to someone else. He played me. I was so in love I wanted to hurt myself when he told me he didn't want me anymore. I couldn't talk for about a month, and my parents didn't know I was so hurt because I can't tell them.

  • I've been hurt so much. I know I loved him. I still love him. I know I shouldn't because he did me so wrong. But I'm easy to forgive, even after he lied, cheated, and lied some more...I still loved him, his problem was he didn't trust and couldn't understand how I could love him after all that so we just fell apart....

  • At the beginning of this year my boyfriend died. No one knows what I'm feeling. I'm feeling guilty for his death and everything else but I don't want to move on. My mind is telling me to get over it but my heart is telling me to never get over him. A few weeks ago I was given a letter and he had said I love you but if I do anything rash you have to promise me not to feel guilty and everytime I look at a picture of him it brings me to tears. It just hurts so much.

  • This is exactly how I feel at the moment me and my boyfriend are going through a really bad time, we are fighting like there's no tomorrow and his lying, treating me bad and constantly making me cry. I cant even hear myself think when I'm at school all I think about is him and if we will get sorted because I love him. It's so hard for me because he is 3 years older and I'm scared I will lose him, he always holds me in his arms saying he loves me and says we will be together forever but there's an end in boyfriend. :/

  • Me and my boyfriend were quite complicated because he was dating my best friend for four years. They never did anything but he broke up with her because he figured out she was only dating him for the publicity she got but then he asked me out and I said yes cuz I had always liked him. We had kissed and junk but then he said he didn't want to date me anymore because he never even liked me! I see him everyday and it just kills me to look at him with that perfect smile I just can't live without him

  • That's a really sad poem, brought me to tears as I'm also going through a rough patch. A man I have never loved so much tore my heart apart, I never thought we would ever be apart but we did and it kills me every single day, he got his ex gf pregnant and now they are back together and have a son...the pain I'm feeling is indescribable. Loving someone who loves another is painful

  • I met this guy over Facebook and started texting him. He knew I liked him and lead me on into thinking he liked me and so I fell for him harder and harder everyday. I asked him to meet me or face chat but he always had something's come up. I went on Facebook and he was doing the same to 5 other girls! And I told him a lot of things that I usually wouldn't tell people. And so I got the courage to tell him that I really like him and he says he's in another relationship and doesn't think we should even be friends. That killed me. Saying you love me with that look in your eye
    And that was a cold hearted lie.

  • When you walked away it cut me through like a knife. you told me you care, yet you had the guts to cheat on her with me. One thing I'll never do is to be the girl who's used to cheat on cause I don't want that to be done on me. You lied, you looked straight into my eyes and told me it was over between the two of you, I trusted you, but never again. Pretty dimples fake smiles, I loved you, opened my heart welcomed you into my life yet you had the guts to strip me, or rather strip it all out of me, now I've got all the symptoms of a girl with a broken heart, but no matter what you'll never see me cry.

  • That poem... It almost made me cry... There's a person I had a deep crush on, he was always flirting with me. We were never dating, but still, I felt like I was in heaven when he asked me to be his girlfriend. But, I was always just rejecting him, and that felt horrible. Now, I feel terrible when I realized that he has been seriously flirting with every pretty girl he sees... I hate him, but I also can't help it, I'm still madly in love with him..

  • I got married on Feb. 21, 2001. It was a wonderful feeling at the beginning of the relationship. Things took a turn after two years of being married to him. He cheated on with someone that I thought was a friend of eleven years.
    It wasn't fun at all finding this out. I was the bread winner of the family. I couldn't work after knowing that he would do such a thing to me. And I do not blame him alone I blame the both of them. On top of that I was three months pregnant. I called my brother to come and get me and he was there. I'm now raising my son alone with Jesus Christ. So to those that have been hurt give it to God and I promise you he will be there for you through your darkest hour.

  • name is Zerina. I come from Bosnia. This is beautiful poem. Like other, it make me cry too. This is my story. I broke up with my boyfriend, one week ago. I loved, and I still love him with all my soul. He said to me I'll always love you, and I will never cheat on you. Love is blind, my mother said to me. Be careful, all men are the same. My love was so deep, so true...and still it is. I saw his fb, and other sites...he was talking with other girls. This pain tears me to pieces, and in every one of his heart remains. At the same time, I've died and revived. Now what I can...Worlds are dying around me, in the noise with other characters who become Zephyr...everything died in me. I have only this pain and longing for him.

  • May I take this opportunity to share my pain, it's been almost 3 months. I had the most amazing girlfriend or so I thought, happy as could be, yes there was little arguments here and there but what couple is perfect? We have been dating for 3 years, I met her when she was 16 and I was 19, on 2nd March 2013 3 days before our anniversary, she called me up to come to her, how excited I was, got there were she broke it off, left me for her friend's brother, I was broken, never felt such pain before, with time it got a little better, eventually I started hanging out more, doing new hobbies, but I still miss her, when I'm not busy the thought crosses my mind of her, couple of days ago I received an sms saying "I miss you" I didn't even reply coz it made me devastated, the pain is still there, I never thought loving someone so much was so hard, living without them.

  • I met a guy I truly loved him we were together for 6 years we had a daughter, who is already 3 years old. He played me he fooled me lied to me, say he loves me. He cheated because I loved him too much I couldn't let him go. I always thought my life will never be complete without him he meant everything to me but at the end he couldn't love me anymore. He changed. He was the worse guy in cheating he finally told me if I can't stand him cheating then I must leave him. I will still follow him one evening I went to him when I got there he was with his girlfriend. He hit me and asked me what do you want stay away from me I don't love you anymore. My heart was sore but I could easily walk away.

  • This poem is what exactly I am feeling now. I fell in love with her once I met on a blind date. After a couple of dates, I completely lost my heart in her arms. She was neither very beautiful, nor very attractive for others, but for me, she was so pure and sweet. I was confident that I will be her boyfriend. Unexpectedly, golden times only lasted for a month and I sat in front her heart-gate waiting for a love which never comes as she said. She tired to love me, but it still did not work out and left me with a sweet memory which makes me feel pain whenever I recall. Anyway, I never regret loving her!

  • Everything begins so sweet, and ends so tragic, especially when it comes to love someone. I love some girl. We had a great time together though it's very short period. At the very end, she told me that I couldn't make herself love me. WHAT a pain, just like a knife cut my heart piece by piece, flash by flash. Now we became intimate strangers. I have to go on with my life. But I am sure one thing, Love is both sweet and painful.

  • This is how he hurts me so much too.. Cannot forget about him, even if we'd broke up 2 mounts ago. But until now, still thinking about his condition.. I loved that boy so much.. Before we broke up he send me a message saying "I love you, forever until the end I'll always love you.." I know I only broke up with him because of my Parents decisions.. They made me broke my heart and broke his heart too.. Just like the poem said I always cry every night.. Hope he is always happy because I never want to see him being sad.. But I will always love him.. because his my first boyfriend.. And he will be the first person who will live inside my heart..

  • It's the story of me and my best friend, and we are no longer best friends anymore. I proposed her when she was in relationship, still she is. Not because of I want her just because of I just wanted to tell my feelings about her, and after she told me that we will be friends, but now I'm nothing for her. I'm not in contact with her but I still love her. And If she is happy with her boyfriend then I'm also happy. But I'll wait for her. The day I stop loving her is the day I close my eyes forever.

  • I had a crush on a guy, I loved him so much that I always ask him for a kiss. We kissed for several times and I told him that I love him and he said he has a girlfriend.. I became weak in spirit couldn't do anything always thinking about him. I still love him dearly.

  • I loved this girl from the bottom of my heart. If I did have a way to talk to her I would find a way. I told this girl I loved her every single day. If I could take one thing back from our relationship it would be the day she lied to me and went to my best friend. This girl was all of me I would go out and buy her thing that I wouldn't think about buying any other girl. She was my first love. Everytime we kissed I felt like I was kissing an angel sent to me from god. It hurt to even think about her because all I can think about is the times we had. I was the girl in my future being my wife and having my kids. But now all of that is gone.

  • I've been trying so hard to be with someone who does not even know how much I love her . Everytime I get so hurt just to make her smile and happy but she doesn't care . I know that the fault is mine because loving someone too much always brings loneliness.

  • He says he loves me but doesn't show it. He realizes he wants to be with me when I stop talking to him after our arguments. He is very sweet and all I want but makes me feel insecure as he has lied to me before. I'm confused I don't know what to do. Should I leave him?

  • My boyfriend and I love each other so much, he promised me that he won't hurt me, we will be together forever, he will never ever leave me but he lied, after all he lied to me, he proposed to me and we are going to get married this year, but he called me last month that he can't marry me because he is not ready yet. I feel like dying, my heart was bleeding when he says he cannot. I loved him with all my heart and I still love him very much. I don't want to move on, he is my second love and I don't want to get over on him. I love him so much and I want him to come back.

  • The same I felt that time when she left me behind. She was my first girlfriend and I adored her. She also loved me very much even once she cried for me when I said I would give up. 7 months ago we separated and still I miss her very much. Still I can't accept that we gave up. I meet many girls everyday but still she never gets out of my mind. Sometimes I feel that it is better to die if I would to live without her lifelong.. I love you angel. Please come back to me.
    I truly love you and I miss you very much.
    I'm dying here without you.. Please heal me…
