I broke my own heart.

Know That I Still Love You

by Natali Holden

Feelings Poetry Contest Winner 
I love him that much
That much that I couldn't stay
If I had stayed, and something went wrong
My heart would be even more broken

Why does love have to be so complicated
I'm the one who hurt myself
But I can't go back
Not now, not ever

I wonder if he misses me
If he loves me still
Did I break his heart
If I did, I broke two

I never meant to hurt him
Or me, for that matter
I just... I just...
Didn't know what to do

I was confused
And now, well I can't go back
What if he's found someone new
What if... he doesn't love me

When I first met him
I thought he would be the same
That if we fell apart, it would be okay
Because my heart hadn't been in it

But I was wrong
He's different
And my heart loves him
More than anyone or anything else

I'll never be able to forgive myself
But maybe... it was the right choice

Writing Prompt
Emotions have overcome us all at one time or another. It could be from someone that broke our heart or just life in general. We all handle situations differently, some good, some bad. This contest gives us the ability to explore this. Write a poem that expresses feelings and emotions such as anger or depression. Any type of poem is welcomed.
