You broke my heart in two
And took me like a bet.
With all you put me through,
I have so many regrets.

To lose you was worth it,
although I wasn't sure.
It seemed to make me happy
but still so insecure.

We always said forever
we would take it to the end,
never give it up,
but this time my heart couldn't mend.

It cut so deep into me.
I guess it hurt you too,
but when you did it, then you lied.
I had to say, "We're through."

I gave you all I had.
I tried to make it last,
but now all we have
are memories from the past.

So look me in the eye,
and tell me what you see.
A girl so broken inside
who's been through misery.

And now I'm moving on
with the pain that kills inside,
but I'm starting to forget
by reminding myself how you lied!

I have somebody new,
someone to treat me right,
to talk to lovingly
and to hold me all night.

He's there for me when I need him,
to give me love and support,
to hold me close and wipe away
all my signs of hurt.

To kiss me softly every night
and let me know he's there
to call me just because,
just to tell me that he cares.

Now here I go again
fallen so hard, so deep,
but this time it's different.
This is one I want to keep!

I fell in love with someone I thought was my true love, but he hurt me badly until I couldn't take it anymore.

I love him so much even though I know that he has a girlfriend. I still love him even though he doesn't care. I love him even though it hurts me. How can I ignore him?

I like this poem and it really heals my heart through all the misery I've been suffering for 17 years in my life. I've been in love with someone but he left me like a garbage being thrown in the trashcan. I've moved on and I have someone else who will respect me for who I am. Love hurts but always been regretful.

I'm 23 and I've been with my boyfriend the father of my 3 babies for 4 1/2 years. Last year we were fighting a lot because he was never home. I was stuck in a house for about a year doing absolutely nothing no job, no car, no friends. Come to find out he was cheating on me and had a baby with someone else. He knew I found out thru someone else and he felt like sh*t. He said he never wanted to hurt me this bad it was a mistake. And he started crying so I believed his lies again. She is living with us now but it's really hard because I'm really jealous when it comes to him. I've been depressed lately because I don't want to give up on him because I love him so much. I don't know what to do anymore.. Please help me

Trust in him. As men, some of us grow up late. An example of it: I lost my love my life, my heart, because I cheated and lied so much, so I'm without my 3 girls an 1 son. She's now in love, just not with me.

I love this poem, it heals my heart. I was hurt by a person I thought she loves me very well. But she breaks my heart into pieces. She stabbed me where no one can see. I feel relived every time when I read this poem.

I'm only 14 but right now, I am in love with some guy who lives all the way in Texas. He says he loves me but he has a damn girlfriend. I encouraged him to date her, kind of as a joke, and he actually did. It hurt, I regret encouraging him, but he's happy with her. I'm unsure if he truly even loves me. I think he's really being honest to me. And now I'm deciding to let him go.

I may be only 13 but I understand this. It's the same with me and my ex, except I never found someone new. I'm still stuck on him and it hurts me to know that he's with another girl....

I love this poem, I was in love for 4 years. This man I thought loved me cheated all the time but would come crying that he loved me. I don't know what this was. I tried to let him go because it was too much to handle , I decided to move on 8 years later, met this man, tried to be as good as possible because I was so much in love with him and never wanted to lose him. After a year he started treating like I am nothing Before I noticed, he had a wife, two girlfriends all having his children. What!!!!!!!!!!!! he was so good to me that I behaved silly whenever around him, I thought it was love. One day he told me, it's over, that killed me. I am still dead, I don't trust, I don't believe in love, I am crying day and night that why can't I find love and have a man of my own. Do I have a problem...I wish I could but if I don't thank God I have learnt a lesson.

I love this poem. I have had someone lie, and hurt me as well so I know how it feels to be hurt by someone you love and care about, but I found someone else that treats me good the way I want to be treated.

Me and my boyfriend have been going out since November 17, 2010 and he has hurt me for the last time. I don't know why he does it but he does. After reading this poem I actually realized he's not worth all the bull**** that he has put me through.

I love the poem its pretty much spot on. But what I really want to say is I applaud all of you who chose to stand up and move on, because its extremely hard. You only have one heart and when its broken its almost near impossible to fix leaving you with a shell...

This poem has touched me a lot, I have been used, cheated on, lied to, and have gotten dumped so many times I have lost count and I'm sick and tired of it I sometimes wish I were not here anymore cause it hurts to much. I know that bad things happen to good people but when it happens everyday that just not normal.

That poem really touch me, because it reminded me what I went through. It killed me inside, I cried everynight before I could sleep, I couldn't function at all. but one day one day I will find that special person.

I love - LIES - because it reminds me of a love I had that didn't appreciate me. I gave it my all and he killed me inside little by little. I found someone new and I feel like he's renewing me little by little.

You know I am 26 years old and I have been with this man since I was fifteen. We have four beautiful children but that's all we got good out of this relationship. I thought he loved me I swear I did!!! But everyday there's nothing but lies and tears falling so hard so unhappy when all I want is to be loved, honestly is that so much to ask for? He puts so many things before us things that just won't matter in the end. It makes no sense at all. So confused yet so broken down and so so tired. I have given him my all and I mean everything but it still aint enough to make him see that I am standing here loving him...and needing him in return. This poem has opened something inside me. Maybe I can find someone that will love me sometimes I wonder if that's even possible if there is anything out there such as true love may be there is, I think now it might be worth finding out :) What do I have to lose? Thanks Kendra

I love this poem. Feel it so much because that's how we ended. I'm going to still find that new love and when I do, I will never look back. It's so funny a person who does you wrong can easily move on to the next. Tired of sitting around, I'm going to look for my new person because this one wasn't worth the tears.
