About the Poem

This is a poem that I wrote when I felt there was nothing left to me as a person. It tells of the helplessness, the hopelessness, that I felt when betrayed by someone I put my entire trust into.

Broken

I see me sitting sadly in the corner
Knees drawn up tightly to my chest.
Mind and body wreaked in sorrow
As tears course down my face.
I pray to a God I don't believe in
Yet I curse him in the same breath.
I look at me with narrowed eyes
Pitying the sorry creature I have become.
I look into my wretched soul
Cursing the emptiness inside.
Emptiness put there by my own stupidity.
As I stand over the huddling form of myself
I see I have gotten what I deserved from life.
I had no right to the beautiful love we shared
When the love rightfully belonged to her.
Sadly I watch the shell of myself slowly cracking
Oozing out all the pain and misery within my soul.
There on top of all the shattered pieces
Lay my beating heart, all alone.
I gently pick it up and place it where it belongs.
May it rest in peace forever.

This poem articuates the way i feel. I get so upset at my ex for dumping me and being with some other girl, but i know at the bottom of my heart is my stupidity, that i lied to him in the first place because i never believed i could win his affection.

I was trying to decribe how I felt to a friend the other day. I couldn't put it into words very well. This poem decribed my current feelings perfectly. Very well written. Really hit home.

this poem is just great. It is really realistic. I was just searching for some poems for my school I.S.P and I found this poem. it isn't really what I need for my I.S.P. but it matches how I feel sometimes and I think it also matches how other people feel sometimes too. It's a great peom
