SparkNotes: Donne’s Poetry: “The Broken Heart”

The Broken Heart - Poem by William Barnes - Poetry

I didn't know that he had left.

A few days after his death.....
I held his cold and lifeless hand.
There were just so very many things
That I could not fully understand.

A few weeks after his death.....
That sparkle stolen from my eyes,
No longer to see his beautiful smile.
I never, ever thought that he would die.

A few months after his death.....
There was so much I needed to learn.
I was confused when he went away,
And I still waited for his return.

A few years after his death.....
I still wish that he could be mine,
To talk and laugh and go for walks.
I miss those special moments in time.

A few after.....

A few minutes after MY death......
Once again I will hear him scream,
"Hey Mom, it's me, I'm over here,
And Mom, this time it's not a dream."

A few hours after MY death.......
I'll hold him close again to my chest.
He'll look at me and say...

John Donne: The Broken Heart - Anniina Jokinen


Heartbreak is something that we all experience at some point in our lives. As common as it is, though, it can be a uniquely devastating experience. Really, there's no sadness quite as profound as romantic disappointment. But why? What is it about love that exerts such a powerful influence over us?

Poems for Broken Hearts - Robbie Smith Memorial

How I wish I were dreaming!

The silence around me is deafening,
For no one knows what to say
To comfort this pain I am feeling
Since my sweet son went away.

Each day the sun continues to rise,
And the earth - it still is turning;
Though my world has come to a screeching halt,
Nobody can ease my yearning.

For a part of me has vanished,
And a part of my heart has died,
And no one can hear my heartache
Or feel my turmoil inside.

So I'll go on grieving in silence
And exist on a separate plane;
I'll keep my love for him deep in my heart
Till we see each other again.

Short Broken Heart Poems and Quotes - Concealed

My freshness spent its wavering shower i' the dust;And now my heart is a broken fount,Wherein tear-drippings stagnate, spilt down ever From the dank thoughts that shiverUpon the sighful branches of my mind.
