Poem: Lost Affection

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

Lost affection is a poem about when one has been hurt by love too much. His heart is destroyed beyond repair. There is only emptiness and pain left within his soul. The love is gone. There is an emptiness etched inside his soul.

"Tin Man" by Miranda Lambert


Lost Affection

Her heart
is destroyed beyond repair,
the wound too deep
to carry the love
it once held so dear.

The affection she treasured
is now silent,
lost beyond reach,
buried deep to the point of no return
along with the sea of hateful words
he spoke in haste.

No longer a force pulling her closer
the magnetic field is broken,
the magic she used to feel has disappeared
leaving an empty, hollow pain
etched inside her soul.

"You Lost Me" by Christina Aguilera

Thank you for sending angels. It is always appreciated.

Some days it can be a struggle.

Thanks for reading.

Hope you have found a way to make peace with the situation if indeed this is about you. It was to the point ...sometimes saying how we feel helps to get on with our new feelings. Angels are headed your way this afternoon ps

Thank you, John.

I am glad you thought it was good. Yes, it is a bit bitter.

I will try to write some more enlightening ones.
