Paper Heart-Part III

A Poem by B.E. Gonzales

I am afraid to love again because of her. It's better this way so I wouldn't be hurt again.


Time stood still

You took my heart

From my paralyzed soul

As I stood unconscious


My eyes were open

I saw you rip my heart

My paper heart

The core that holds my life


I felt every tear

I felt every blow

I felt the pain

It was horrible


You opened my soul

And offered a broken heart

Time began to move

Tears fell from my eyes


I fell to my knees

I was still alive

I was still breathing

But my soul was dead


From that moment on

I lived with a dead soul

A broken heart

Like an empty shell

A sad and powerful poem. A heart brake leave us disappointed and afraid. Best to learn and move on to another part of living. Description and story was very good. Thank you.

again, wonderful imagery used. I think I preferred number two, but that's simply down to my personal opinion not to anything you've written. But you ended the three poems well in this one.
