Is This What A Heartbreak Feels Like?

Is This What A Heartbreak Feels Like?

A Poem by Mir

My chest is physically hurting.

But I haven’t cried. 

I've yet to shed a tear, yet my eyes just want to flood. 

She’s all he talks about.

And he barely even looks at me anymore.

I've never liked someone so much,

And now my heart is being torn.

How do I heel from this? 

How can I keep him out? 

How can I stop this hurting in my chest

And learn to live without? 

What has he done to me?

I knew opening up was wrong.

He fed me lies and words I needed.

But never meant a single one. 

He sat there, watching, amused by the convincing.

Flirting everyday, texting non-stop. 

Making me believe that it was I that he had wanted. 

But I wasn't

And I learned to late.

That I was just a conquest. 

Another life to shake.

Goodbyes are difficult. You're left mourning the loss of someone who hasn't even died, and you're forcing yourself to reconcile the fact they're out of your life and they might as well have passed.

But... been there, done that. You'll get through it. Your heart may be the victim of numerous knifings, but it keeps on going, sometimes despite yourself.

I am so sorry.
It sucks.
I LOVE this. So honest, so emotional, so real. I think there are many girls out there who can relate to this, myself included.
I love the rhythm, structure and content.
Great write :)
