The tears fall down
Why have you done this to me?
I gave you my heart on a platter
I gave you my soul as open as it could be
You know my everything, you know me
And what do I get in return?
For a once in a lifetime love
That has vanished in a minute

My words don’t make sense to me
My choice wasn’t the perfect one
Why do I deserve this ordeal?
I thought you were the one
My heart seems to be crying
In its own monotonous tone
For a love that vanishes
Is worse than being alone

My head is strangely calm
Away from all this chaos
My heartache continues to haunt my soul
Slowly fading into the dirt
Am I just like you or worse?
I can’t feel anymore
I just want to drift away and be ignored
Humanity is not with me anymore

My body is about to explode
All the tears have burnt my eyes
I cannot take this anymore
Why did I deserve that lie?
The heart does not forget
Nor can it remember
For as strong as it appears
It can be crushed forever


‘Tears’ is a heart-break love poem.

It all started with the protagonist falling in love with a beautiful girl. She was exactly like him in every aspect. They were meant to be. Destiny had it planned all along. Now, the protagonist felt a certain feeling called happiness.

There is just a sudden twist of events and the protagonist now faces a disturbing time. He has lost his beloved one to the disbelief of time. He is heartbroken and the pain kept hitting him every second.
He just cannot breathe anymore. The planet has conspired against him. This loss has destroyed his precious heart. He cannot stop thinking about her.

He needs to realize the truth but he is just confused out of this world. He questions everything. Everything.

This poem explores the mind of a heartbroken troubadour.

Thank you,

    That was beautiful. I could really relate to each and every word. Maybe you should tell her how you really feel…I did and I’ve been married to my wife for 6 years now.

    • Hi Alex,

      Thank you very much for your comment!
      I’m glad that you enjoyed this poem.
      The truth is that one part of me wants to continue that happiness and atleast be in good touch but the other part just cannot accept the cruelty anymore. I await time’s decision at this moment. But, I am glad to hear that things have worked out for you. 🙂
      Here’s wishing you and your lovely wife a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

        Thank you! You too!

        If you feel like she is the one and if she makes you feel happy, don’t let her go. You might regret it.

        Love your poems. Keep it up!

      • Thank you very much!

        I’m trying to weave out of the web of confusion but I will surely keep your words in mind before a decision.

        Stay tuned for some more poetry! 🙂
