Broken hearts club

I am who I am. I write poetry and paint really badly. Please be patient.

Once again Invested

Heart in one way street

Going nowhere

Stormy clouds all around


Heart shatters

Pick the pieces up,

This process continues

In never ending loop.


Let my loneliness keep me

Company through the years

Empty promises

Heartless ghosts in the dark.


I may be young however

These words are as real as

Feelings, a stain

Too stubborn to be removed.


Love is for weak

No longer need it

I have become dead,

Numb to the exterior.


No-one can save me now,

Rescue boat can’t find me

This vast ocean of tears

Left me stranded on an island alone.


Empty roads

Constant dead ends

Plague my path on a never ending

Journey till the end of time.


Might not be strong enough

For another dead end,

Pass up all opportunities

To avoid another mistaken love.


Heart now locked

In a safe away from any eye,

In a cold place where

It becomes icy and feelingless.


This emotionless state

Will save my heart from

Shattering again and again.
