Why did you have to go away

When we give someone our heart, there is always a chance it will get broken. We never want that to be the outcome, but too often it is. Dealing with a breakup or unrequited love is crushing. These short poems capture the despair experienced when a relationship does not work out. Even though these poems are short, the expressed emotions are powerful. Dealing with heartbreak is always a heavy and draining experience. We hope these poems remind you that you’re not alone.

Like glass, touching it I risk hurting every time.
The hard truth of having one too many last changes. Sometime there is no coming back from crossing the line. We may not be able to fix what we broke, but learning from it can help prevent us...
