Heartbreak Poems

Healing Poems for Heartbreak

When your heart is broken it is the saddest thing in the world. All your energy leaves you and everything in your life seems to lose all meaning. You gave your heart and soul to this love, and now it is no more. How can your heart ever be whole again? There is a very deep thought attributed the Mystical Rabbi of Kotzk, "there is nothing as whole as a broken heart". Although a broken heart is painful, it brings a person to turn to God. He realizes that he is ultimately alone in the world except for God who is always there to comfort him.

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

    The poetry reminded me the harsh truth of my life. I experimented with it in my life. I told everything of my life to my wife. She cried and accepted me. It seemed nothing but a lie.
