“Bankruptcy of the Heart”


Broken heart sewn back together
Image via Wikipedia

Although you deceived and escaped with gain,

There was no way for me to avoid the pain,

 You claimed no guilt for my heart’s theft,

Yet I was emotionally spent and all bereft,

There should have been a siren to put out an alert,

I’m tired of being cheated, confused, and hurt,

I’m bankrupt and my poor heart is overdrawn,

I’ve loved unwisely, the conclusion is foregone,

You broke into my heart with honeyed deceit,

You withdrew my love and left me in defeat,

My love account depleted, my reputation shattered,

Then you were gone, nothing else really mattered,

Where can I go to find love to earn?

Will I fall for another who gives little in return?

I can’t trust my emotions for they can deceive,

Can I trust my thoughts? What can I truly believe?

Seven years of a broken heart till I trust once more,

Seven years of loneliness before I’m restored,

You were living high on love at the expense of me,

Even though you knew I loved you desperately,

Now in limbo because  love was all that mattered,

My love is depleted and my poor heart shattered,

You took all my love and left little in return,

Now I’m bankrupt and my heart is overdrawn.

    1. I touch this base sometimes as I race towards home. I generally like happier poems. But I have been in the depths a few times, although now I know how to swim.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

  1. Phew .. finally got time to read you .. missed your words so much Dan !!

    I can’t trust my emotions for they can deceive,

    Can I trust my thoughts? What can I truly believe?

    These two lines are so much true .. every failed relation leaves you so vulnerable ..

    1. I am missed? I thought you were tired of me! Long stories and all. Right now I’m working on a passion filled story poem but I’ve almost forgotten what passion is. I need someone to show me. Oh well, back to memory.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

    1. Thanks, Ji. Your words mean a lot to me.

      May the sun be on your face and the wind at your back as the Lord blesses you throughout the day. Carpe diem!

  2. That’s the worst kind of bankruptcy. Hopefully, the love account will have some resources in it again. And soon!

    Great rhythm and rhyme!
