Broken Circumstances

Where are the broken hearts?
That was left far behind
Circumstances hid them
Making them hard to find

There were two broken hearts
A hurt but loving pair
One too much and one too little
The pairing just wasn’t fair

Both of them felt broken
Neither one of them could bear
So they hid from each other
And their circumstances back there

  2. it is sad.. like two people that were so badly hurt that they couldn’t see that they needed each other… i’ve been in this situation before.
    thankfully, i opened my eyes


  3. Wow. Having written a post regarding soulmates, this would be such a crime and no one would ever know just how tragic a loss it is. Beautifully penned. .


  4. hiding from pain, which may cause us to miss out on something possibly great 😦 hugs Happy Valentine’s day Boo! πŸ™‚


  5. Awww yes, we do hide from the pain of love hurting us again, don’t we?
    Sad. True.


  6. I’ve been there… it’s a sad place to be.

  7. amazing wonders…

    hope that you enjoy a lovely valentine’s day.

  8. You captured that feeling very well, M. One really is the loneliest number, especially when you’re “supposed” to be a couple. Nothing quite like being in a relationship and still feeling lonely as hell. I hope your Valentine’s Day was full of warmth and smiles and not so much the lonely stuff. πŸ™‚


  9. Thank you for your comment. This one is beautifully written and sad at once.
