Poem: Pieces of My Heart

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

When one begins a relationship a certain magic lets you enjoy each moment. Soon the pieces of your heart remember the broken promises of the past and make you wonder if you can fully trust anyone again. You wish your heart would mend so you could truly love once more.

"Lovin You" by Minnie Riperton


Pieces of my heart
long to feel your touch,
long to see your smile,
long for that special magic
like the moments
we first met.

Pieces of my heart,
hide beneath the surface
from shattered dreams
and broken promises,
waiting to be unlocked
for the one
I can trust.

Pieces of my heart
too afraid to take another chance,
listen to your spoken words,
wanting to believe
there is truth
within each one.

Pieces of my heart
feel fortunate to have you
standing with me,
hoping one day
my broken heart
will mend.

"Pieces" by Gary Allan

You are right, without it life has no real meaning.

So glad you stopped by and could relate to this one.

Love is beautiful.

Dana Tate from LOS ANGELES on July 28, 2019:

Nice poem. I can certainly relate. Love is beautiful. When it goes wrong or, tainted by mistrust it can be painful. However without it life has no real meaning. Thus, we pick up the pieces and try again, in hope.
