A Broken Heart (Prose) - Poem by Heather Burns

When you left my heart
was broken
tiny pieces were scattered
everywhere
my search to find and
repair the damage began

I grew very excited for
in my search
thinking I had finally
gathered all the pieces
together
The task trying to attach
each piece in the proper

place so it would look
as if nothing ever
happened

No one would ever know
the damage that had been
done. I was almost finished

when realizing a tiny piece
was still missing

searching everywhere in
the darkest corners but
it had vanished. I finally
came to understand a broken

heart will never be as it
once was
a broken heart will always

remember.

    I think the missing tiny piece was trust, when it vanishes it is never found again. (Report) Reply

    Such a poignant, honest poem that creates a powerful image as we read it. I love most: 'a broken heart will always remember.' Hope writing the sadness helps it to heal a little. (Report) Reply

    So bittersweet when we realize those little pieces of our hearts can never be replace...try as we might...So comforting to know we have shared emotions, experiences and events that shape our poet's hearts. Lovely, lovely, lovely! (Report) Reply

    Thank you very much for your comment on my poem, Words Of Expression. I appreciate it and the fact that you read my poem.
    Once your heart has been broken it is scarred forever even if you piece it back together. A new love may help you regain your balance, but the scar is there nevertheless throughout life, causing the heart to always remember, just as you stated in last line of your poem. Beautiful write. Thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply
