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

"Pieces of My Heart" describes how one begins a relationship with magic that lets you enjoy each moment.

Soon the pieces of your heart remember the broken promises of the past & make you wonder if you can fully trust again.

You wish your heart would mend so you could truly love once more.

"Lovin You" by Minnie Riperton


Pieces of My Heart

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

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

Pieces of my heart
fear taking another chance,
listening to his spoken words, wanting to believe each one is the true.

Pieces of my heart
loves him standing beside me,
hoping one day
my broken heart
will mend.


This is how betrayal starts...

not with big lies, but with small secrets.
