It Breaks My Heart

It Breaks My Heart

A Poem by Poet Pittinix

It's a powerful story of love and blues.


For Monique


Monique, it breaks my heart that I can’t have you.

Baby, I think you’re the right woman for me.

The good things I see in you draw me close to you.

I wish you could understand what I’m going through.


The feelings I thought you had for me don’t exist.

You don’t care for me; you love someone else.

I shouldn’t have let my feelings for you show.

I don’t have what it takes to compete for your love.


You can enjoy a long life with your young lover.

I can’t possibly give you the love that you need.

I don’t blame you for not wanting an affair with me.

It really hurts to say goodbye to the one I love.


I’ll just walk away hurt and lost in deep sadness.

I’d give anything to see you run after me with open arms.

But I guess I’ll just have to wake up from this dream.

I must face the reality that it’s not going to happen.


Baby, it breaks my heart to live without your love.

It’d be a shame to see my love for you go to waste.

It makes me want to cry when I think about it.

I’ll always remember you even if you forget me.
