Poem: I Am Broken

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

Poem Summary

I am broken tells the story of one who has a broken heart and is cast out into the world to start over. He does not like the world he is encountering and wishes he could go back to pretending his life was fine. He feels broken like Humpty Dumpty & knows he cannot be put back together again.

I Am Broken

I am broken into more pieces
than humpty dumpty,
no one can put me back together.

I hate this world
full of fake people,
I want to go backwards
to my pretend life,
the one where I am safe
existing in a dream world
living life the way it is meant to be.

I am too tired to start over,
my heart is bleeding
I want to hide in my shelter
where this is make-believe.


So here's the thing with broken hearts.

No matter how you try, the pieces never fit the way they did before.
