Sad Poems, Poetry about Sadness

A blue star in your eyes

On the wings of an eagle,
My love for you flies.
Soaring higher and higher,
And touching the skies.
I reached up above,
And pulled a star from the sky.
To place it within,
Your precious minds eye.
To dwell there forever,
As my love for you.
On the wings of our love,
Enduring and true.
I honor you my darling,
With all that I am.
Please darling please,
Will you be my man?
There are so many things,
My heart wants to say.
I love you sweetheart,
There is no other way…….

A Heart full of pain

Another day passing by,
another day without you;
wondering if all tomorrow’s
are going to be the same.

Seems like only yesterday,
the wonderful day we first met,
seeing your beautiful smile,
knowing, you were the one for me.

Why did our magic fade away?
Where did our love go astray?
I know it’s too late now,
but, I would really like to know.

You’ve met someone new,
someone who’ll never let you go
leaving me here all alone
with a heart full of pain.

A slash of Blue

A slash of Blue —
A sweep of Gray —
Some scarlet patches on the way,
Compose an Evening Sky —
A little purple — slipped between —
Some Ruby Trousers hurried on —
A Wave of Gold —
A Bank of Day —
This just makes out the Morning Sky.

Am I Rite ?

roses are black
my heart is blue
my soul is cruel
and so are you
the night is dark
as of your heart
when the day
becomes a pray
the cuts on my arms
are as red as an apple like blood
was down dripping through your feet
as you never thought you would meet
and endless treat ; day by day it heals
but then again it isn’t for real ; that your not going to hurt me ?

Get out of my head
Away from my heart
Every word from your mouth is a lie
Pouring out of you like water, when it rains
I can no longer tell what’s ral and what’s not
I trusted you more than myself
Now I’m letting go
Both sides of your face look the same
And it opens my eyes
To the fact that you’re just like all the rest
A pain in my chest
Like a fist clenching my heart
Causing anxiety to run through my body
Panic from this pain and betrayal
It’s done and over now
And I see it was never real

Broken Heart

Broken heart never love again,
Broken heart all because of men,
Broken heart never to be replaced,
Broken heart the problems I have faced,
Broken heart what’s the future gonna be like?
Broken heart that was the final strike,
Broken heart who is to blame?
Broken heart you put out the flame.

As we lay there quiet
I was reminded of all the reasons why I lust you
Your smile,
and the way it teased at me seductively
Your laugh,
and the way it tempted me
Your eyes,
and the way they seem to hypnotize me

As we sat there silent
I was reminded of all the reasons why I love you
Your smile,
and the way it brings such life into me
Your laugh,
and the way it makes everything okay
Your eyes,
and the way they seem to read my thoughts

As we stand here now
I am reminded of all the reasons why I hate you
Your smile,
and the way it confuses me
Your laugh,
and the way it seems to mock me
Your eyes,
and the way they can look into mine and not feel a thing

You tore my heart into two,
My hopes, wilted and shattered,
You said I just won’t do,
To you, that’s all that mattered.

Didn’t you give me a chance,
To prove we’re made for each other,
Let me show it you just once,
But in my heart, I know you’ll never…

Maybe I’ve started
writing poems too late,
‘Cause my heart’s all blistered,
And so full of hate.


With dirt in my hands, i’m walking through the rain,
With a heavy heart, i’m burying all my pain.
But now i cry, with tears in my eyes,
I scream for help, remembering all the lies.

In good old days my love, I saw some trust in you,
The times we spent together, i remember – Yes i do!
I loved you then my love – more than you could see,
Can’t you see for now? I gave up my life for thee.

They said I was a blind- that’s why i loved you so,
My heart’s broken up pieces – never again – oh NO!
I push myself to leave, into the woods – away,
But i want from you my love – to die with every day.

That’s what i feel for now, as i sing this song for you,
Buried under my soul, i want to hurt – i do!
No more i live for you, under this open sky,
Singing my last of songs, i want to die – yeah DIE!

As i sing this song my love, I see i’m not alive,
No more tears, no pain – no more lives to drive.
Remember me today, as i sing this song my love,
I’ll come to you again, but the dead man sings for now…

Come to me my love, come to die this once,
Sing this song with me – once and only once
