Hurting Poem

I have been in a six year relationship and he still does not know what he means to me. I wrote this poem the saddest time of our lives. He lost a loved one and I was not able to comfort him. Every word in this poem is truly meant it's as if my heart was speaking all on its own. I dedicate this to all of those who have been lost in your own love.

Tears Of A Broken Heart

© Bianca Santamaria
I have given all my love to you, but what do I get in return?
A broken heart.
I have given you my heart, and you stomp on it like a doormat.
I have given you my youth and you took advantage of my un-experienced heart and played with my emotions.
I gave you all the trust, but you misused it.
I gave you the benefit of the doubt, and you proved everyone right.
I gave you my life and you killed me day by day.
I want to pull my aching heart and tear it piece by piece, So I no longer love you.
I want to loose my memory so I no longer think of you.
I want to go so far so I no longer have to see you.
I want to cry but I no longer have any more tears to fall down
my sad lonely face.
I want to sleep but my dreams haunt me with you in them.
I can’t seem to find a way out. What do I do?
I don’t want anyone to see this not even you.
How do I get out of this?
How do I stop this misery? How do solve this mystery?
I can’t seem to find anyone to make feel the way you do,
The way you look at me,
the way you say my name,
the sound of your voice when you tell me that you care.
I love you so much I think I’m going to die from this pain that haunts day and night.
How can forget you? If the only love I know is you.
How can I move on? If life is not the same with out you.
I want to brake free and move on but I think I’ll be doing something wrong.
I just have to close my eyes and let things fly and let the days pass me by.

  • I'm very inspired. This reminds me so much, of the guy I that I once used to call 'my love.' I could almost cry, It's amazing how this poetry can move you in that kind of way.

  • It reminds me so much of my ex husband and I. Even though we are divorced, we still go back and forth. He wants me one minute and breaks my heart the next. I still love him with all my heart, but it comes with a painful price. I'm afraid to move on, too. In fear that it may be the wrong choice. I love this poem.

  • I'm exactly in the same situation now, after 6 years of relationship recently found that there is another woman... I knew something was going on.. but still held on until he admitted that he is living with a woman for 2 years now... I can so much relate with the poem.... because the pain is still inside me..

How could I be so blind, I'm turning 34 years tomorrow and he's 2 years older than me. We have successful careers and expensive cars, a beautiful house and 2 daughters, we grew up in the dusty streets of Soweto together but today I found out that it was all a lie...... I've been crying all day hoping it was a dream but I love myself and know that he's not worth being my husband..... tomorrow (on my birthday) I'm meeting up whit a divorce lawyer ***crying*** I know that it shall pass

  • As I read this, I couldn't keep the tears inside. It is so sad when you truly love someone and give them your all because you sincerely believe that they love you just the same. Being in love with someone can be a dangerous thing, especially when he or she knows that you would do anything for them. at this point they start playing with your emotions and so, at the end, all you do is wonder...what did I do wrong?
    Just remember that everything happens for a reason and sooner or later that person will realize that you indeed loved him/her. With time the pain will fade away and YOU will find the person who will not only appreciate you, but will love you with the same passion you love them. “To love someone is nothing, to be loved by someone is something, but to be loved by the one you love is verything."

  • Once I was trying to find my life partner. I met some one after a year. He was nice I liked him. after we closed he was more nice to me. I loved him from the bottom of my heart. I trust him, I care ... after some times he went to US. He promised to back, I believed. He did not call me, no email, no post. I try to find him on Facebook. I couldn't find him. I heard from some one he was in jail. Now it's been two years, I am still in love & waiting for him. I tried everything as much as I can but nothing is changing. There is only one thing is left for me, to wait the will of God. Who knows maybe one day he may back. Every day I am crying. Crying is so nice b/c it bring out my bring in side to this world. When I cry I feel I am speaking in silence, I feel I am laughing in sadness. I feel like shining in darkness this all are just a feeling. The truth is for me .....peace

  • One November cold morning of 2012, I saw her going with her friends. On the 1st sight I fell in love with her. It's my first love. I tried to say my love many times, but I feared to say my love. Two months went over. One day I found that she also loves me. I was happy & excited on that moment. Some months later she avoided me on everything, I don't know why she did like this, but I knew that she loves me still now and forever. Now we're apart. I'm waiting for her returns. I truely love her. I really miss her.

  • I've been with this guy going on seven years and the past year has went down hill. I lay here tonight with a broken heart since Saturday night. He told me a while back he wanted me to leave that he didn't love me. Well that ripped my heart and we seemed to work thru it and I didn't go. He then stopped holding my hand kissing me plainly ignoring me played video game most of time except when time to eat. When he about died from having his stomach took out I was there. I did most house work and helped with his grandma. Look what I've got in return I now live at his moms and am still hurting and crying and I can't even get a call saying how are you. I'm so hurt how about you.

  • I met my partner 4 years ago. I really love him but I don’t think he understood how much he means to me. He has betrayed me and I suffered a lot. I gave him a chance at a perfect life but he took advantage of my trust and love and broke my heart again and again. One day it clicked for him just how important it was to have me in his life. I was as surprised as I was wary. I had a lot of patience with him our relationship and since there has been a lot of happiness, even until today. Patience brings happiness.

  • This really touched me, I'm going through a lot now, I love her soo much, had a broken heart and my world was gonna crash, but she held me, and I cried in her shoulders. Everyday I felt stronger until I was strong enough to live again. Today I'm in great pain cause she lied about she and her ex's breakup. She treats me right but I can't share, I get hurt but I don't fight or complain, I'm just an option in her life, she keeps lying. My pillow suffer my tears every night. But I love too much to walk away

  • Your poem says perfectly what I cannot. After being engaged, having a son and giving years of my life to someone; I feel true heartache. Years that I spent defending him to my family that said he was no good, years spent dealing with his alcohol soaked mother, years waiting on him hand and foot, dealing with his short temper, his depression and garbage of a friend; he decided to break things off and tell me he never loved me. I have built my life, present and future, around him. I have devoted myself to him, all because I love him. I hate having to continue living in the same house because of our son. I am surrounded by him, he's all I want, all I think about. I wish I could be angry and hate him but I can't, not even for five minutes. Your poem, says it all. Every single detail.
