Poem: My Heart is Breaking

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


My heart is breaking
but I can not let it show
my eyes fill with tears
I will not let fall.

I must be strong
for the others around
my sorrow will come
when I am alone.

I am torn inside
I want to yell
at the heavens
this fate is unfair.

Too young to go
too many to leave behind
shattering dreams of hope
leaving many in despair.

Once the others
are comforted
when silence surrounds
it will be my time
to breakdown.

My thoughts will release
the tears will flow
a piece of my heart
will break apart.

How I wish
I could talk with you
just once more.

I like the way you expressing the hurt you feel after losing someone you'll never be able to accept they are gone.

Great work Brenda.
