Short Poems

1. “Broken Heart”
My heart aches with each beat,
Tears streaming like a river,
Love lost, I am incomplete,
My soul forever a giver.

2. “Lonely Nights”
The dark of night descends,
Emptiness consumes my soul,
Alone, my heart never mends,
Painful memories take their toll.

3. “Goodbye”
Farewell my love, forever gone,
Leaving my heart in ruins,
Memories linger, haunting on,
Longing for our lost beginnings.

4. “Lost Dreams”
Dreams once so vivid and bright,
Now shattered, lost to time,
Hope fades with each passing night,
My soul unable to climb.

Medium Poems

Alone in the Dark

I sit alone in the dark,
My heart heavy with pain and sorrow,
The weight of it all breaks me apart,
Will there be a better tomorrow?

The tears flow down my face,
As I think about all that I have lost,
No one to comfort or embrace,
My soul feels forever tossed.

The silence is deafening,
As I try to make sense of it all,
The emptiness, the suffering,
Is it my fate to endlessly fall?

I pray for a ray of hope,
To light my way out of this abyss,
Maybe someday I’ll learn to cope,
Or maybe this pain will forever persist.

The Final Goodbye

We said our final goodbye,
As I watched you slip away,
My heart aches, I can’t deny,
The pain is here to stay.

I wish that we had more time,
For one last embrace, one more kiss,
To tell you that you were mine,
And that I would always miss.

The memories flood my mind,
Of all the moments we shared,
But now, you’ve left me behind,
And my soul feels forever scared.

I try to be strong and hold on,
To the love that we had so true,
But the thought that you’re really gone,
Makes me feel so lost and blue.

Goodbye my love, my heart,
I’ll always cherish the times we had,
Until we meet again, we’ll be apart,
But in my heart, you’ll forever be clad.

Long Poems

Tears of Solitude

Alone, staring at the empty space
Not a soul to embrace
Though surrounded by plenty
A void in my heart I can’t empty

Darkness engulfs me
Demons within won’t let me be
The weight of despair
Unbearable to declare

Haunted by memories
Of love lost and shattered dreams
Dragged down by regret
Wishing things could just reset

Silent sobs wrack my soul
As I struggle to keep control
Of this overwhelming sadness
A never-ending madness

Walls built around my heart
A fortress to keep others apart
From the pain within
And the loneliness that’s grown like a sin

No one to share my fears
No one to wipe away my tears
Only the shadows remain
As I drown in this pain

Hoping for a glimmer of light
To break through the endless night
But until then, I’ll stay tangled
In the tears of solitude, strangled.

Mourning Grief

In the depth of my despair,
I find solace in my tears.
For they are but a symbol,
Of my immense pain and fears.

A life once filled with laughter,
Now shrouded in darkness and strife.
I long for the warmth of happiness,
That once filled my soul with life.

I mourn the loss of love,
A precious gift now gone awry.
The joy of yesterdays,
Lost in the moment we said goodbye.

The weight of this burden,
Is heavy upon my soul.
The hurt, the pain, the sorrow,
Never seem to let me go.

I cry out in the night,
For some relief from my pain.
But my cries fall upon deaf ears,
And my tears fall like rain.

The memories that once brought me joy,
Now torment my restless mind.
A constant reminder of what was lost,
A love that I’ll never again find.

The loneliness is overwhelming,
And the ache in my heart is real.
I long for the comfort of love,
And the exhilarating joy of its feel.

But for now, all I can do,
Is mourn the loss of what once was.
And hold tight to the hope,
Of finding love in another’s heart because.

For even though I am broken,
I know I can heal and move on.
All I need is a little time,
And to know that I am not alone.

So I’ll cry my tears of mourning,
And I’ll embrace the pain and grief.
For it’s in facing my sadness head-on,
That I’ll find my much-needed relief.
