A blow to the heart



Your final words took me by storm, a blow to my fragile heart.

With blurry eyes that clouded my vision.

A laden heart that spoke of my pain.

A shattered soul that depicts my harsh loss.

I watched you leave, taking my essence with you.

I never knew the heart of a man was like the sea, calm on the surface but turbulent beneath, very deceptive.

You were ruthless, and vicious in your stance.

How could you take my will to live with you?

In a sudden blink of an eye, you painted my world black.

My heart, that once pumped red with life; a dull beat of shadows that danced in the dark.

You did that to me. Ruined me for everyone.

Yes, you did.

You did this to me. Yes, you did.

Turned me into a sappy fool.



On the threshold of pain, I see you.

Broken dreams trail after your exit.

Shattered hopes soaked in your absence.

You broke me like a dainty teary figurine.

My beaten body crashed to the floor, breaking into glassy smithereens that reflected my pain.

My soul, a bloody pool of tears that wracked my body.

You broke me. Yes, you did.




My world was upended by you. Shaken off its axis by your magnetic force field.

I was taken by your smile.

My innocence was crushed beneath your assault.

My hopes turned into a blank well of oblivion.

You did that to me.

Crushed me beyond repair.

A deadly blow to the heart.

I was ruined for everyone.

Tarnished beyond words.

And I see no one coming to my rescue on the horizon.

No helping hand to break my fall.

No shove to get me back on my feet.

Only the scent of your lies, the bites of your betrayal shrouded and kept me locked up in a sea of excruciating loss.

You ruined me for everyone. Yes, you did.

You did this to me. Yes, you did.

Turned me into a sappy fool



On the threshold of pain, I see you.

Broken dreams trail after your exit.

Shattered hopes soaked in your absence.

You broke me like a dainty teary figurine.

My beaten body crashed to the floor, breaking into glassy smithereens that reflected my pain.

My soul, a bloody pool of tears that wracked my body.

You broke me. Yes, you did.



Staring up at the house that once shared our laughter.

My foolishness was more lucid than the starry night that glared daggers at me; the twinkling stars that poked pinpricks at me, mocking my misplaced trust.

A deadly blow to the heart.

Even the universe was pointing judgy fingers at my predicament.

It mocked my cluelessness in seeing the truth before me.

How could this heart of mine trust you so blindly?

It led me astray.

Betrayed me and left me writhing on the floor in agony.

You did this to me. Made me doubt myself.

You ruined me for everyone. Yes, you did.

You did this to me. Yes, you did.

Turned me into a sappy fool.



On the threshold of pain, I see you.

Broken dreams trail after your exit.

Shattered hopes soaked in your absence.

You broke me like a dainty teary figurine.

My beaten body crashed to the floor, breaking into glassy smithereens that reflected my pain.

My soul, a bloody pool of tears that wracked my body.

You broke me. Yes, you did.



I took bold steps towards that darkened fortress that housed our loving memories and wondered how I could be so wrong.

Every glance I took struck home the truth of your reality.

A deadly blow to the heart.

You're a refined liar sent to destroy me.

And oh, how you destroyed me!

You turned my heart into an empty shell, like the echoes that rhyme through the hallways.

You ruined me for everyone. Yes, you did.

You did this to me. Yes, you did.

Turned me into a sappy fool.



On the threshold of pain, I see you.

Broken dreams trail after your exit.

Shattered hopes soaked in your absence.

You broke me like a dainty teary figurine.

My beaten body crashed to the floor, breaking into glassy smithereens that reflected my pain.

My soul, a bloody pool of tears that wracked my body.

You broke me. Yes, you did.



Curling into a lone corner of the room.

Embracing the darkness that surrounds me like a lifeline.

I wallow in self-pity dipped in loneliness.

A deadly blow to the heart.

My dejection, a thick breathing entity that broke me in, plastering me to the wall.

I let out a heart-wrenching sob.

A screeching sound that scared the peace of the night.

It announced my painful lament to any willing to listen.

But no one seemed to hear.

No one seemed to mind.

No one came to my rescue.

I was alone in my little bubble of pain.

Alone in my conundrum.

You ruined me for everyone. Yes, you did.

You did this to me. Yes, you did.

Turned me into a sappy fool.



On the threshold of pain, I see you.

Broken dreams trail after your exit.

Shattered hopes soaked in your absence.

You broke me like a dainty teary figurine.

My beaten body crashed to the floor, breaking into glassy smithereens that reflected my pain.

My soul, a bloody pool of tears that wracked my body.

You broke me. Yes, you did.



My arms were like claws around my body, trying to replace the warmth you wickedly snatched away, but falling short.

Nothing can replace you.

No one will do.

A deadly blow to the heart.

My heart was a stream of yearning flowing into your river of passion.

How was I supposed to know I would be lost in you?

Or that your passion would obliterate my existence from your world.

I had no inkling.

You were a force to reckon with.

A force that blindsided me with deceit.

I didn't see you coming, and couldn't survive you when you did.

You ruined me for everyone. Yes, you did.

You did this to me. Yes, you did.

Turned me into a sappy fool.



On the threshold of pain, I see you.

Broken dreams trail after your exit.

Shattered hopes soaked in your absence.

You broke me like a dainty teary figurine.

My beaten body crashed to the floor.

Breaking into glassy smithereens that reflect my pain.

My soul, a bloody pool of tears that wracked my body.

You broke me. Yes, you did.



I stood up and walked through the silent walls of my hell.

A hell you created with your wicked flame.

A deadly blow to the heart.

Your love blazed hot like a fiery phoenix.

And I was the ugly moth foolish enough to get lost in your inferno.

You incinerated and left me in ashes, your love burning out.

No one told me, no one warned me, your love was a frivolous thing that runs hot and cold.

In your eyes I was disposable, an item easily thrown away.

Your blazing passion burns out, and I became a thing of the past.

A faded memory you left stranded in the dust.

I have no one but myself to blame.

You ruined me for everyone. Yes, you did.

You did this to me. Yes, you did.

Turned me into a sappy fool.



On the threshold of pain, I see you.

Broken dreams trail after your exit.

Shattered hopes soaked in your absence.

You broke me like a dainty teary figurine.

My beaten body crashed to the floor, breaking into glassy smithereens that reflected my pain.

My soul, a bloody pool of tears that wracked my body.

You broke me. Yes, you did.



Against my will, my tears ran a well of darkness.

Painting the quiet of the night with the sorrow crushing my soul.

Reminding me of your absence and sealing my fate in abject loneliness.

A deadly blow to the heart.

You walked away without a backward glance.

Taking my heart with you, and leaving me bleeding on the floor.

You closed the doors to all my dreams.

Closing the shutters of life on my face.

I was left writhing in a mess you created.

Your fading cologne is the only thing within my grasp.

How could you leave me for her?

What did she have that I didn't?

You ruined me for everyone. Yes, you did.

You did this to me. Yes, you did.

Turned me into a sappy fool.



On the threshold of pain, I see you.

Broken dreams trail after your exit.

Shattered hopes soaked in your absence.

You broke me like a dainty teary figurine.

My beaten body crashed to the floor, breaking into glassy smithereens that reflected my pain.

My soul, a bloody pool of tears that wracked my body.

You broke me. Yes, you did.



With sheer will of strength, I dragged myself to the room we shared.

Curled up in bed, surrounded by the sheets that hid our intimate moments.

A deadly blow to the heart.

I was trying to bring you back. I was trying to will you back. You were with her.

But I couldn't shake the feeling you belonged to me.

I miss you. Oh, how I miss you.

In these quiet moments, cocooned in the bliss of your scent; the only thing you left behind.

I recall every heartwarming moment with you.

The stolen looks when we first met.

The furtive brush of fingers in passing.

The fluttering words spoken in soft tones were hidden swords that would someday poke me.

You ruined me for everyone. Oh yes, you did.

You did this to me. Yes, you did.

Turned me into a sappy fool.



On the threshold of pain, I see you.

Broken dreams trail after your exit.

Shattered hopes soaked in your absence.

You broke me like a dainty teary figurine.

My beaten body crashed to the floor, breaking into glassy smithereens that reflected my pain.

My soul, a bloody pool of tears that wracked my body.

You broke me. Yes, you did.



Oh, how I wish I never met you.

How I wish I could turn back the hands of time and rewrite our story.

Oh, how I wish!

But my wishes remained muted words of my broken heart that never saw the light of day.

It perished on the tip of my tongue, dying out like the love you once proclaimed.

It reminded me of the flame of a lone candle, snuffed out by the stormy breeze of a thunderous night.

A deadly blow to the heart.

Oh, how I wished I never met you.

You ruined me for everyone. Oh yes, you did.

You did this to me. Yes, you did.

Turned me into a sappy fool.



On the threshold of pain, I see you.

Broken dreams trail after your exit.

Shattered hopes soaked in your absence.

You broke me like a dainty teary figurine.

My beaten body crashed to the floor, breaking into glassy smithereens that reflected my pain.

My soul, a bloody pool of tears that wracked my body.

You broke me. Yes, you did.


You were a lesson set in stone.

A fond memory that turned sour.

A harbinger of the upheaval that shook my world and coated it with tears.

You were my ruin.

    Well, thank you so much. I would try. I ventured into poetry because of a contest that came up on here. I wrote that for the contest. The theme was supposed to be sorrowful or sad, an heartbreak or loss endured. But I would try to write something again. May 20, 2024, 22:18
