Short Poems

1. “Goodbye”

Breaking up is the hardest thing,
Saying goodbye makes my heart sting.
Our love was strong but now it’s gone,
In the end, we were both wrong.

2. “Moving On”

No more tears, no more pain,
I’m leaving behind this heavy chain.
I’ll learn to love again someday,
And leave this heartache far away.

3. “Lost Love”

I thought our love would never end,
So much joy it did extend.
But now you’re gone and I’m alone,
A lost love that’s never shown.

4. “Closure”

Time heals all wounds they say,
But my heart hurts every single day.
I need closure to move on,
And find the strength to carry on.

Medium Poems

Fading Away

Our love was once a flame,
Burning bright and strong.
But now it flickers weak,
And it won’t last for long.

We tried to keep it going,
To make it last forever.
But we’re both just holding on,
To something that’s already over.

We’ve grown too far apart,
And now it’s time to say goodbye.
Our love has faded away,
Like the setting sun in the sky.

It hurts to let you go,
But it’s for the best, I know.
I’ll cherish the memories we shared,
And let our love fade away, slow.

Broken Hearts

Our love was once so pure,
And our hearts beat as one.
But now they’re both shattered,
By the words that we’ve said and done.

We tried to fix the pieces,
To mend what we had before.
But the cracks were just too deep,
And our hearts are bruised and sore.

We thought we were forever,
But it’s clear that forever has fled.
Our love has turned to ashes,
And our hearts are left cold and dead.

It hurts to see you go,
To watch you walking away.
But we both know it’s for the best,
Even though our hearts are broken today.

Long Poems

A Heartbreak Symphony

In the symphony of my heart
Played a sad and mournful part
The crescendo of our love
Has ended with a final shove

The sweet notes we once shared
Are now bitter and impaired
The rhythm we once danced to
Is now a distant, fading hue

The harmony in our union
Has turned into a dissonant fusion
The melody that once soared
Is now a broken, shattered chord

Our love story has come undone
Leaving me with a heart on the run
The finale of our romance
Leaves me with no second chance

As the instruments fall silent
I am left with a heart that’s violent
Tears flowing like a river
As I try to cope and deliver

The epilogue of our love story
Is a heart-wrenching, painful allegory
Of how two hearts can split apart
Leaving nothing but a shattered heart

Yet, even as I grieve and cry
I know that time will heal and dry
The wounds that you have left within
And let me begin again

For the symphony that once played
May have ended with a sad crusade
But a new one will soon begin
With a melody that will win.

A Heart Shattered into a Million Pieces

My heart was whole and happy,
Filled with love and hope.
But then you came along,
And soon I couldn’t cope.

Our love was sweet and strong,
Or so I thought at least.
But one day you shattered it,
And left me with the least.

You said you needed space,
And that you needed time.
But as each day passed by,
I knew it was a sign.

A sign that things had changed,
That our love was not the same.
And soon enough you told me,
That you wanted to end this game.

I begged and pleaded with you,
To give us one more chance.
But you were adamant,
And left me with a trance.

A trance of disbelief,
A heart shattered like glass.
I didn’t know what to do,
With this pain that would not pass.

Days turned into weeks,
And weeks turned into months.
But every day I relived,
The pain of your abrupt haunt.

I missed your touch and kiss,
And the warmth of your embrace.
But most of all I missed,
The love that we had once faced.

One day I woke up,
And realized it was time.
Time to pick up the pieces,
And start my life anew, divine.

Although it hurt to leave you,
I knew it was for the best.
And as I moved forward,
I found that I had been blessed.

Blessed with new opportunities,
And a heart that had been healed.
And though the memories remain,
I know that I have sealed.

Sealed a chapter of my life,
That belonged to me and you.
But now I have a new one,
That is meant for someone true.

So thank you for the lessons,
And for the love we shared.
But now it’s time to move on,
To a future that is repaired.
