Short Poems

1. “Broken Glass”
Shards of disappointment
Litter the floor of my heart
Once whole, now shattered
A mess I can’t seem to start

2. “False Hope”
Promises made, but not kept
Hopes raised, but then dashed
I hang on to false hope and pray
But reality leaves me smashed

3. “Fading Dream”
A dream so bright, now fading
It slips from my grasp like sand
I chase it with all I’ve got
But it slips away from my hand

4. “Lost Opportunity”
An opportunity missed, forever lost
A chance for greatness, now gone
Regret fills my heart with sorrow
As I realize what was done wrong.

Medium Poems

Broken Promises

Promises made with such conviction,
But now they lay in shattered fragments,
The disappointment is overwhelming,
Leaving only pain and regret.

Words said with no follow-through,
Causing hearts to ache and eyes to weep,
Wishing for a better outcome,
But only finding despair in the end.

Dreams that were held so dear,
Now drift away like leaves in the wind,
Each one filled with unfulfilled hope,
Leaving nothing but emptiness within.


The feeling of despair creeps in,
As one hundred promises go unfulfilled,
A slowly sinking ship without hope,
A light without a flicker of a flame.

Days that blend together in grey,
As time seems to lose its meaning,
Each breath a struggle to take,
With no relief from the hopelessness.

Every passing minute feels wasted,
As dreams continue to dissolve,
Leaving behind only the emptiness,
Of a life that could have been.

Unfinished Business

The road ahead seems endless,
With piles of unfinished tasks,
A never-ending stream of work,
That often seems insurmountable.

Days spent in constant motion,
Trying to keep us afloat,
With no chance to catch our breath,
Or find a moment to simply be.

Memories of past disappointments,
Haunt us like a ghost,
Whispering that we are not enough,
And saying that we never will be.

Until the day we finally stop,
And look at what we have done,
And realize that the joy is not in the end,
But in the road that we are on.

Long Poems

The Weight of Disappointments

I carry the weight of disappointments
Heavy burdens that weigh me down
Moments of hope dashed to the ground
Expectations unmet, dreams unfound

I walk with a limp, a wounded soul
Scarred by the scars of broken goals
The road ahead seems long and steep
And the journey looks too hard to keep.

I struggle and stumble along the way
And the journey seems to be a price to pay
For all the things I thought would be
But turned out to be just a memory.

The weight of disappointments feels like a chain
Dragging me down, causing so much pain
The harder I try, the heavier it gets
And I wonder if I’ll ever forget.

But deep down, I know that hope still lives
And through the struggles, my spirit still thrives
I’ll find a way to lift this heavy load
And find the strength to walk the road.

Disappointments may darken my path
But I’ll hold on to faith, let go of wrath
I’ll keep on walking, one step at a time
And someday, I know the sun will shine.

For though the weight of disappointments may be heavy
I know that my spirit is still steady
I’ll keep on walking, keep on trying
And one day, I’ll be flying.

So I’ll keep on bearing the weight of disappointments
And trust that one day, they’ll bring me joyous moments
For in the darkness, hope still shines
And someday, the light will be mine.
