A Broken Heart

A Broken Heart

A Poem by Lovecraft
"

A man loses what's most precious to him.

"
Emptiness consumed my very soul
Watching her lithe form depart.
I knew it wasn't her fault,
Yet I felt a desire to scream at her.

But my heart had been permanently shattered
And I could never pick up the pieces.
I wept at the thought of our last conversation.
We had been so very cruel to one another.

Emotions collided within me in waves,
Awaiting their freedom to be heard.
I had to refuse their requests,
Too much pain and sorrow...

A tragedy had destroyed us and our love,
And seeing me was too much for her.
Still I loved her always.

We still love our son,
Wherever he may be.

But I do not believe in Heaven nor Hell,
I knew the horrible truth.
The immutable fact that we would never,
ever see his beautiful smile again...

I can think of no remedy or balm
That could bring us back together,
As a family.

Only the hope she finds happiness someday and somewhere.

There is naught to do,
But simply grieve alone.

I will always love you, my Claire,
No matter what has befallen us.

Goodbye

Just let me know what you think. It's the first Poem I've written concerning the concept of Love, so be somewhat gentle.

I just want to say, I'm not actually very good at reviewing. But I'm going to give it a go.

I like it. It's sad but I like it that way. My favourite part is this:
A tragedy had destroyed us and our love,
And seeing me was too much for her.
Still I loved her always.

Don't ask me why that is my favourite because I don't know. It just stood out to me. I love the way it's written. You can actually feel the emotions he going through. Good Job!!!

Small question. Is the picture Dean from Supernatural?

What can be more tragic for a man than to loose his woman and his child? That you jave accepted this cruelest blow of fate and still wished her happiness speaks of a greater spiritual love. The poem is very profound and conveys your loss and love in totality.

Gee
Hmmmm, I once felt this way about a butterfly, mind I was younger then. To stop it flying away I pulled its wings off. Strange this, but after that it no longer held any sway over my thoughts. I later that day used it as bait to catch my dinner....

What the hell!? Lol, okay. Thanks? :()

Aww that was a sentimental poem...I am mostly fascinated by rhyming poetry but this had my eyes glued until the very last word, despite being an exception. I'm sure this would have left many people dewy-eyed. I loved it!
