I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.


"Thank You For the Broken Heart" by J. Rice Lyrics

Words spoken from your lips,
garbled in disbelief,
my heart sinking to the floor
as this bombshell explodes.

Lost in the confusion,
bewildered by your actions,
tears streaming down my cheeks,
the words “I love you”
still ringing in my ears,
remembering those tender hugs and kisses
before you left for work.

Your actions displaying a loving couple,
leaving no insight
for this shocking revelation,
a fate, I do not deserve,
killing my inner being
leaving me in complete and utter loss.

"Tell Your Heart to Beat Again" by Danny Gokey

        This is a heartfelt poem. A broken heart is difficult to heal. At the time you can't see any tomorrows, but they come, and slowly the laughter returns.

        A broken heart hurts so much but is not impossible to fix. I always like to think it is their loss and you will find and deserve better. At the time it is so hard to see. An emotional poem that hits hard to all who have loved and lost. Thank you so much for digging in deep and going straight to the heart. Have a good night.
