  1. 21. Shattered Soul

    • By Shianne
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2017

    I wrote this poem when I had my heart broken and was trying to find out why everyone hated me.

    Heartbeat falls upon deaf ears,
    Slowly take away all my fears.
    Coldness closes in all around
    As your shattered soul falls to the ground.

  2. 22. Can't Let Go Of You, Don't Want To

    • By Amy Lorraine Bridges
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2015

    I had lost everything, and nothing was worth living for. I felt so lonely and numb, and in result to this I tried killing myself but did not succeed in doing so and was sent to a psychiatric hospital. Months after I had been sent there, I was still in a program for recovery, and I learned to write poems as a form of recovery. You can never recover a broken heart, but you can help heal it. It's been almost five years since I have tried to kill myself and I still haven't recovered, but my heart has become stronger. There is hope!

    Today doesn't seem real,
    That might be because today I can't feel.
    I can't feel the sun, moon, or stars,
    I miss the love that used to be ours.

  3. 23. My Love Is Gone

    The hardest thing is losing the love you have.

    Lord, hear my prayer oh so dear.
    My heart is aching; my mind isn't clear.
    My love has left me; it hurts my soul.
    Without that love, I don't feel whole.

  4. 24. Hoping

    • By Tara Ong
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2012

    I thought I truly found happiness, like most people do, only to find out he was with someone else. I started writing him a letter, sort of a last goodbye, when I realized that I was writing a poem. Even though things didn't work out for the two of us, I feel that this poem explains exactly all I was trying to say to him. I wasn't trying to say goodbye; I was just hoping that he could feel a little bit of what I was feeling, you know, hoping for his love.

    I write this poem for you to read,
    with heartache that will forever bleed.
    I wish things were so different.
    Sadly, this is what you've made of me.

  5. 25. I Love You

    • By Karissa L. Bailey
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A woman struggles with feelings she still has for her man after she has already broken up with him.

    The intentions are real
    But the truth is untold,
    Patiently awaiting the lies to unfold.
    Her heart shatters with the thought of his touch.

  6. 26. My First Love...My First Heartbreak

    I am a woman of independence. I can say that I am successful in my family, work, studies, and career, everything except in love. At the age of 24, for the first time in my life, I fell in love with someone. I thought my first love would last, but I made mistakes. I lost love because of what I am. The guy thinks I am a woman so hard to reach for....it breaks my heart and every time I think of him, I really don't know how to mend my broken heart.....worst, he's eyeing our common friend.

    I never thought I would love someone like you,
    Never in my dreams that I would meet you.
    But then, as I traveled on my life's journey,
    You walked into my life, and I fell for you.

  7. 27. Wait For Me

    • By Sabrina
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2009

    You know that feeling that you get when you think you love someone? Or when you're falling in love for the very first time? Those are the feelings I got towards this one man. I've liked him since day one. When he finally asked me out my insides turned to lava. I felt like I could fly. Unfortunately, it was the wrong time for us. We were both way too busy with our own lives. So no matter how much it hurt me, I had to end it. To this day, we are still very good friends, and not a day goes by that I don't wish that we were once again together.

    I know so little about you,
    But I'm falling in love with you.
    I have been since the day we met.
    When your eyes met mine

  8. 28. The Dark Road To Love

    The story behind this poem was when my first love finally gave me some hope and yet I destroyed it all. He was the most imperfect perfection I had laid my eyes on and all of him was scared and bruised. But when you're in love, you see beyond a person's mistakes and flaws. You come to terms with who they are. This poem is an experience; it's part of my life story, and I hope it spreads love to the hearts that are reading it.

    Destruction and ruination,
    Confusion and complication.
    That was all she ever was.

  9. 29. Hollow

    When you can't express the agony and pain inside of you, poetry is one of the ways to get it out. I wrote this poem when I just couldn't find the meaning in anything. Everything was numb. I was paralyzed. A feeling so dreadful that I turned into an empty shell. I doubted every emotion I felt. I tried so hard to get through it all. I was broken. I no longer wanted to feel love. I just wanted the dreadful feeling to end. I hope you like it. This poem is for those you have felt like this.

    Emotions.
    Do you feel them?
    She was numb and frozen,
    Yet it dimly sparkled like a dying gem.

  11. 31. A Triolet Of Heartbreak

    Losing someone you love is always heartbreaking, whether it's through death or the end of a relationship. I have chosen to write about it in the form of a triolet.

    A triolet is a poem written in a set form consisting of eight lines with a rhyme scheme of only two rhyme endings and certain repeated lines. Specifically ABaAabAB - the capitals signify repeated lines, the other letters signify matching rhyme endings.

    Why did you have to go away
    and leave me with a broken heart.
    I prayed and prayed that you would stay,
    why did you have to go away.

  12. 32. Look Me In The Eyes

    • By Jenny
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2009

    I wrote this poem for my husband. I wanted him to know how I feel and how much it hurts to be lied to. He's the love of my life, my soul mate, my friend.

    Look me in the eyes
    And tell me what you see.
    My hopes and dreams are shattered.
    Is there no future for you and me?

  13. 33. A Shattered Heart

    • By Christi Ybarra
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2008

    Love like a broken vase

    Some say a broken heart is like a shattered vase
    Fragile pieces scattered all over the place.
    The shattered pieces of broken glass seem to go everywhere
    Unlike the pieces of a broken heart that seem to pierce your soul.

  14. 34. I Don't Sleep Because Of You

    • By Carlie
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2011

    I wrote this poem when the love of my life told me we could never be. I spent weeks where I wouldn't sleep because of him.

    I don't go to sleep at night
    because you haunt my dreams,
    and waking up to find you're not here
    is harder than it seems.

  15. 35. In The Shadows

    I met a boy a while back, and I fell in love with him. He left university and we stayed in contact, but then he suddenly cut me off and made me feel worthless. The hardest part of all this is that, although it was hard to move on from him, when I was moving on, he returns and I'm back to loving him, even though he doesn't care. I wanted to write this for me, to express my feelings and help the healing process.

    You left me in the shadows, alone in the dark.
    I was left crying and upset the day you broke my heart.
    I tried to move on and meet someone new,
    But when I was in their arms, I wished it was you.

  16. 36. You Used Me

    This poem is based on how a guy used me just to get his first kiss. He made me feel horrible. I never really felt love, and I thought he would show it to me, but he didn't... so apparently, used is all I'll ever be.

    You used me.
    I thought you were the key,
    But the truth is that you used me,
    So now I will never be free.

  17. 37. Destruction

    • By Ashley Saldana
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2016

    I write as a form of escape. My deepest feelings come out when my emotions are at a high. This poem describes marriage problems. When you have someone you love so much and have to suffer through the lies, heartache, and betrayal, you feel so low. You no longer feel alive. That's where I was when I wrote this.

    Overcoming the heartache you caused me,
    Trying to rebuild my esteem,
    Convincing myself I am truly enough,
    Questioning why you were always so mean.

    You decided to tell me the truth -- that you've found someone better.
