Song of The Broken Heart……my entry for Thursday Poets Rally!



I feel so unwanted,

Reduced to my shadows, I am a no one,

What I used to be, What I am now,

Left to languish among the rots of my past,

Where every heartbeat spews blood,

Every breath makes me burn.


These words are all that are left now,

And those dreams I dreamed for me and you,

Biding their time till it’s all over,

And I am just a blob in your distant memories.


And it’s not just the tears and smiles,

That I wasted on you,

Living with the trammels of false hope,

That your love was true.

Now that my trust lies stabbed a million times,

Tell me, what am I supposed to do?


I am so clueless,

Still searching for those answers,

The reasons for your actions,

That shook me to the core,

Just a ‘sorry’ isn’t enough,

I think I deserve much more.


Down on my knees, trampled upon, trashed,

The feeling of being the insignificant one,

People jeered, while I had to burn,

Well, Guess what!

You’ve had yours; Now, its my turn,

I am not dead, I’ll rise again,

I am that DARK chapter in your life,

Forgive me for being a pain in your conscience,

Forgive me for being that ‘insignificant’ thorn’.

      Thanks a lot for adding me as your friend! It means a lot.
      Painful, it is…but I’ll get over it. It’s not that I am the only one who has had to deal with it!
      But at the same time, I am thinking….there must be something good for me in this too!

    bad things just happen. We should realize this golden truth. There is no reason for their happening- they just happen.

    Been there, seen that, its hell, and it will take time to heal. Please heal yourself and move forward. We are our own healers, none else will do this for us, actually none else can. they can help us but finally we have to do it.

    I will hope and pray that you soon leave past behind, extract the nectar from this poison and smile like a rose.

      Agreed trisha. Moreover, it’d be really dumb for me to throw everything away just because someone thought that I was not good enough! Actually, as I sit here in front of the screen, reading comments from all you people, it gives me a lot of strength and keeps me distracted enough not to think about those events.

        now you are talking like me. πŸ™‚ I have decided a long ago that i will not hurt anyone (at first) and will not let anyone hurt me.

        Who is anyone (but God) to decide what we actually are?

        We should never let anyone take place of our real guide in life- our soul.

        I am happy that you know that you are precious to us.

        Best of luck again for your exams.

    I know how you feel,
    shake it off,
    nothing can stop you from being yourself and feel good about yourself…

    Very expressive of feelings that I’m sure many have felt before. But like you said in the end “I am not dead I will rise again”

    Naba, thanks for the invitation to visit. And I’m so sorry you are going through the painful process of an ended relationship. Yes, most of us have been there and it hurts like hell–can’t avoid the pain but you can choose how to react to it.

    I’m glad that the comments here are helping you feel better. This was a very powerful expression of your feelings–it’s good to get your feelings out!

    How love can make us suffer right?

    Anyway… seems like sadness brings out our most poetic side.
    Amzing way to express yourslef.

    Sorry about what happened.
    Brilliant poem though.
    Sometimes it takes the most painful things to get the most amazing and deepest poems.
