Poem: She is Broken

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

"You Lost Me" by Christina Aguilera

"She is Broken"

She’s drowning in a sea of tears
with a hole in her heart
towing her under
with no hope of rescue.

Tormented with heartbreak
feeling she is worthless
there is no light
left for her eyes to see.

"Pieces of Me" by 3 Doors Down

It is a sad one but it does touch the heart.
