Broken

Broken

I've always known life was hard,
Was harsh and mean at times,
It gives a little then takes a lot,
No reason for it's rhyme.

A heart neglected and abused,
Still softened for my touch,
She only wanted to be loved,
Is that asking life to much.

She felt the pain to oft in life,
As death stung close to home,
From birth, death constant sought,
Her very life to own,

In accident more than once,
Then cancer found her star,
A young girl should be going out,
Not hiding from her scares.

I cry and pray, I wring my hands,
I hide in rooms to scream,
Death is back to seek her life,
Just now by other means.

She never ask to much of life,
As others do I say,
I'm lost without her for my smile,
And empty are my days.

    Beautiful piece that wrenches the heart. A sensitive tale of woe and lost love. How true that there seems to be no rhme nor reason. Loved it. Milly x

    Wow; I was not left disappointed..
    Though Sad this is such a touching poem; with real depth.

    "A heart neglected and abused,
    Still softened for my touch,
    She only wanted to be loved,
    Is that asking life to much."

    This stanza followed by the ending..

    "She never ask to much of life,
    As others do I say,
    I'm lost without her for my smile,
    And empty are my days."

    This is such a beautiful, heartfelt write that it almost moved me to tears. I particularly loved the fourth line in your poem when you talk about life's ups and downs and say that there is, "no reason for its rhyme." I think that it is a beautiful way to describe life and one that every single person can relate to. Comparing life to poetry is genius. Well done for bringing your reader into the poem and making them feel what you want them to. It takes a good author to move his/her reader and you do it exceptionally well. I think I will remember that line for a very long time!

    Thanks for sharing. 5/5 from me.
