Broken hearts they never mend
Bruised and tattered they beat within
Twisting and changing with every sin
Dealt or received they warp and bend

Until the day they feel nothing at all
No more pain
No more falls
No need for forgiveness
No way to forget
Too many wrongs
Emotionally spent

But a broken heart
Doesn't just quit
There's a longing
To feel something again

Because broken is better
Than emptiness
Feeling emotions
Is something we miss
As always comments are welcome.

Broken is better than emptiness. Sooooo true. I'm a HUGE believer of that.
Nicely summed up there, Jay. It's always better to feel something, even pain, than nothing at all.
Keeps reminding us we're alive, eh?

That's right, even pain reminds us we're alive and that's better than nothing at all. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I really appreciate it :)

Gotta say I agree, Jay. At least we get a little something outta life before it breaks us...rather than not having a go at anything. Nice words, mister.

Well it seems I've spent a great deal of time stepping through life not really feeling much. But I know its so much better to feel something then nothing at all. Thanks Rachel :)

Stupid longing...what does it know anyway?

Great write.
A great writer once said something like...it is better to risk the pain of love then to live a fridgid lonely existance.
I suppose I ought to take steps to...do something like that. Maybe. Or not. :)

If its within reach than its probably is worth the risk. Of course perspectives always look different coming in versus going out so who knows. But thank you for the comment :)

Well...aren't those ponderful words!
If its within reach than it probably is worth the risk I would love to steal them and work it somehow into a poem...but...they are your words, Jay. Good ones.

That is the nature of perspective...subject to change.
You are welcome for my comment...and I am not a "but". lol...:D

Feeling and experiencing emotion is something we cannot live without. It's a fact. :) Not sanely, anyway.

Kinda sad that its true or maybe its uplifting I'm abit conflicted between the allowing for hope and just giving up so I'm not disapointed later

Excellent rhyme scheme. I really love the title for this piece, given the content. Sometimes, it's better to leave something in pieces than try to put it back together. Great work.
