Invisible Heart

Invisible Heart

A Poem by Nathan Durham

Another breakup poem... A little extreme, but it represents the part of me that still refuses to move on, and wants her to come back

You've hurt me again for the hundredth time in a row
You decided you don't want to be with me any longer
Giving up on you seems like the right choice, I know
But every time you break me, my heart grows back stronger

I want to be with you for as long as my promise has told
Despite the fact that you dumped me out here to die
I intend to follow you until I am too weak and too old
Every time you fail me, I want you to have another try

If you knew my heart beats after you walked out the door
You probably would see me as continually and eternally obsessed
You keep shoving me back, as I ask for more
I keep chasing you, without you I am only alone and depressed

I keep on loving you, even after you cast me away
I create a mask, with which to hide the way I still feel
You're still the only thought that I think of all day
I will forever deny that what we had was not at all real

My life goes on as I love you with my invisible heart
I maintain the same feelings, even though they are unreciprocated 
You no longer have any care for me, it was your choice to be apart
I hide my emotions that you would just as well have hated

Why should I give up because you don't feel the way I do?
I plan to resume my life, with dreams of your return banked inside my head
Despite the fact, the healthy choice is to move on to find someone new
You bonded to the blood in me, without you I would be close to dead

I will never speak to you again, if that is what you want or need
But I will not stop loving you, even though you caused my emotional death
Even if I don't say it to your face, my invisible heart continues to bleed
Because you are worth my every movement, my only thought, my final breath...

Author's Note

Nathan Durham
It sounds pretty clingy and stalkerish at first, but that wasn't my intention. I instead want to represent the part of me that has the high hope that my ex will come back to me one day...

I actually like this. And no, it doesn't really feel stalker-ish to me. It is plain sweet ad romantic. I absolutely every line, and of course I just love the very thought of a seemingly already one sided love. Call me sadistic, but I like romance that way sometimes. Nice Poem.

Keep Writing. ^___^

No it doesn't sound that way at all,
To me it tells a story of a heart being used or misled.
I like this. It is very expressive and very well written.

Again, this is very well written! It does sound a little stalkerish in a way with that line about following her, but it is still a great poem! You are truly a gifted writer, so keep using your talent! :)

Also, the title is great! Those two words actually speak volumes about how you will always have these deep feelings of love for her, even though she may not notice them because you keep them locked inside of you.
