Heartbreak Poems

Sad Love Poems about 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.

    He wrote her a song, but it never got finished
    They both fell in love, but it was soon diminished
    She sits on his bed and cries in his lap
    He cries back at her, knowing they can't go back.

    Poem For When A Marriage Falls Apart

    Do you know a life of loneliness and one filled with pain,
    living a life with nothing to gain,
