A Poem by BrokenGirl


This weakness is killing me.

You are seeing my true colors

When this is all done I’m scared you won’t even look my way

For in the moment

My secrets come flying out of my soul like a wave crashing against the shore

I promise I’m stronger than this

It is just a moment of Vulnerability .

If I asked you to save me one last time, baby what would you say?

This is impossible

I must be careful

Piece MYSELF back together.



No I don’t need your help.

No I’m not this strong

I’m sorry I have this front and these walls around me

They keep me safe as possible

People can’t hurt me this way

Darling I’m sorry

We were not a mistake

Our past is not a mistake

None of it was a mistake

This bang blow out

Baby come back?

Give it all one last try?

Just because I can’t hold myself together doesn’t mean I can’t try my hardest to keep us together.


My strength is coming back

Let me build more walls so I don’t hit that again

Here come now baby girl

A massive machine is what I must be

Not complicated but protected and not slipping

Don’t let me break down darling.

You are all that saves me

I really love this

Posted 12 Years Ago

lovely poem!! I actually really do like this!!:) I particularly like the structure, it does alot!! "I must be careful..." this is pulled away from the rest of the poem, functioning sort of like a dramatic aside. I feel as if the persona is actually taking to themself, only allowing the reader into these inner thought and so still finding themselves vulnerable- now to me!!! Good

I'm just me. A regular lost broken soul. Everyone says my writing is good so I thought I'd give it a shot here. See if anyone takes a liking to it. :] I'm very different more..
