Broken Heart


Published by Family Friend Poems October 2009 with permission of the Author.

I knew that this would happen,
that you would break my heart.
It was stupid of me not to listen.
I was stupid from the start.
You told me you were different;
now I know you are all the same.
I'm in a lot of pain.
It's hard for me to hate you.
It's hard for me not to care,
because always in my mind she is going to be there.
I want to forget it; I'm going insane.
Am I listening to my heart or thinking with my brain?
I wish I knew why you did it,
what you were thinking at the time,
but then I know I don't want to know
anything more would drive me insane.

I love you but I wish I was strong.
You don't deserve me now.
Hopefully you can prove me wrong.
I'll always love you, but you have really broken my heart.
Hope you know how to fix it because believe me I can't.

This poem really got to me. My boyfriend of 9 months has been cheating on me with my neighbour's sister for the past 5months. I tried to learn to forgive him and myself... I don't want to break up with him because he is apparently planning to propose to me next year, so I’m confused and lost but this poem is what I'm going through.

One month ago, I caught my fiancé out with another man. She spent the night with him but swears she was sick and nothing happened. We had a blow up and she admitted having slept with two guys in the past year and being involved in inappropriate texting relationships with several men she had met while out with friends. They told her they were single, but at least one was married. We have tried to reconcile the past month and she has changed her number and allowed me to track her. I want to believe she has changed her ways. I know I neglected her and checked out, but I didn't deserve this. I feel like the last 8 years of memories are forever ruined. I'm trying to move past this, but I get triggered so easily. It's so painful.

I've been dating my bf for the past 1 month but then he used to cheat on me behind my back and that really hurt but I still kind of have a thing for him. And this poem really touched my heart.

This honestly made me cry, for the past 3 years I've been trying to think straight about why I keep forgiving my cheating ex but honestly now I'm glad I found the guy I'm with today because he doesn't make me feel like this anymore

I loved him but I guess my love for him wasn't good enough he messed up by sleeping with a gal without using a condom. How dare you do a stupid thing like that. I cared for you I have given you everything I have what about you? I hate you but still I love you not with the love I have for you before.

This is how I feel.. My boyfriend has been cheating on me for 7 out of the almost 13 months we've been together: '( It hurts, but I can't break up with him because then it would hurt more and I would truly break... I just have to struggle through the pain and the nights of endless tears...

When I read this poem I cried because its the exact same thing I'm going through right now!! My boyfriend that I loved and thought he loved me the same cheated on me! I'm so hurt right now I can't be on my own, I'm five months pregnant and I feel like there is no hope!! My first love was a lie and I feel like beating myself to the bone!!

My fiancé cheated on me, but not in the physical sense. He was engaging in cybersex with countless women, he joined dating websites etc. I love him so much it feels like I cant breathe. I need to know why, but don't want to know why. I am giving him a chance to make it right. I know I may be a little foolish, but I have to, or I would regret it. This poem expresses what I am feeling right now.

This poem touched my reminds me of the months I went through dealing with a break up. I couldn't stand the feeling of that pain. Maybe it was because he was my 1st lover, but even though my love for him is still there. I have just learned that disappointments are part of life and we live by learning. I Just don't think I will ever be ready to experience a break up pain ever.

3 days ago my partner, lover and best friend of 5 years cheated on me by sleeping with a guy she met on the internet just a few hours before.... this is the only poem I've found that comes close to touching how I feel, thank you.

When I read this poem I cried. Those feelings are what I'm going through now, even though my boyfriend dumped me last May. Not only was he my first love, he was my first best friend. I was his first, too. Since then, he's dated 7 other girls, but pathetic me clings to the fact that even though they are my friends, he only dated them for a week max. I still and will always love him, but he probably never loved me.
