Shattered Dreams


Little girl with shattered dreams,
Been hurt too many times it seems.
Afraid to let anyone get too close,
Haunted by a past full of ghosts.

So many times she tried to let go,
But the memories continued to flow,
Every night when she went to bed,
She relived the horrible things he did.

She tried so hard to just move on,
To forget it all and just be strong.
To rebuild her life, began again,
Be free of the hurt and pain she was in.

Numb inside, she lives day to day,
Keeping her true self tucked away,
And no matter how much she tries,
She can't forgive him for his lies.

Little girl with shattered dreams,
Been hurt too many times it seems,
Will she ever let anyone in,
And live a happy life again?


Thanks,
Blend57

I hope you don't mind if I analyze your poem and give you my opinion


This poem says you want to get straight to the point with what you want to convey which means you are ready to deal with the pain. You are over that situation but the hurt still lingers and sometimes it gets overbearing so you second guess your ability to have confidence in another. Really you are just second guessing your self.

This can only be a good thing. Everyone has room to grow, and we never stop learning more about human emotions flowing like a dreamscape ever changing, others' and ourselves'.

Your poem poses a question and the context of the question within the context of the poem arises the answer. I think you know what that is. The question itself is merely a yearning.

Thank you so much for shaing your poem! It is beautiful and sums up the emotions we go through when faced with such pain. The poem is proof of your strength and ability to face your pain and open yourself up to the new experiences that are waiting for you! Namaste and love

Thanks to all of you who commented. I appreciate your kind words, I really do. This poem was written with a certain time in my life in mind. I truly thought I was over it, but every once in awhile, the memories start to come back and well.......that's how this poem came to be.

Much thanks to all of you again. This poem was easy to write, but hard to share and it means a lot to me to know that others were touched by it.

Thanks,
Blend57
