Shattered- A Poem

Broken beyond repair

You shattered my soul

With only your words

I tried to pick up the pieces

And leave you behind

But trying never brought me any results

Now I lie beside you every night

Praying for darkness

For the moment when I’m finally free

I hope you enjoyed this poem “Shattered.” I don’t know if enjoyed is the right word lol. It’s a pretty dark poem. Somewhat inspired by the things I have been reading or watching. A lot of people are unable to leave abusive relationships. One of the reasons for this is because by the time you realise you need to leave it’s too late. Abusers may make sure you rely on them and can’t leave because of that. Often, victims have no other option but to stay in a toxic relationship. “Shattered” is my attempt to show how victims are often broken down by abusers so they are too afraid to leave. And they are too reliant to leave.

  1. Someone broke you to the point you wish for death. The advice you would get most often would be leave them behind and live your best life for you. Easier said than done though and most likely from someone who has never gone through it. Great poem

    1. Thank you and that’s exactly it. When you actually experience that it’s much harder to move on. It’s harder to forgive and forget.

      1. “Sometimes you just have to forget about forgiveness and just accept and get the hell out of town” That’s a movie quote can you tell me which one

        1. Love that quote but have no idea what movie it’s from.

          1. Grosse Point Blank starring John Cusack

            1. Oh I see, I haven’t seen it although I have heard of it.

  2. Not just an extremely talented writer, an amazing blogger but you are also a lovely poet Pooja!!
    Time and time again, you show your capacity to work in different genres/niche and types.
    These always keep the readers motivated and excited to read more.

    1. Thanks so much. I love dipping into different niches and trying my best at them.

  3. Albeit this may be about past feelings resolved, but if it’s not. Freedom is a state of mind that makes friends with your heart after which they can both find safety comfort in your soul. Leave the lost pieces behind with the past, you got this far without them and the sooner you let go the sooner your new found happiness will compensate for what was lost. Chose to be free, live freely until you’ve forgotten all about the darkness.

    1. I agree, leaving the past behind is the best way to move on. If we cling on to old feelings we’ll never be free and we’ll never find happiness.

  4. It sounds so sad 😞.

  5. I love your poetry.
    You are amazing as always!

    1. Thank you so much!

  6. You shattered my “glass cup”

    With only your words

    I tried to pick up the pieces

    And leave you behind. 😉

    1. Lovely poem, thanks for sharing it. Goes perfectly with mine.

  7. Soul pieces are hard to pick up. Sometimes there are lights in the darkness. And sadly sometimes darkness in the light of day.

    1. Yes, I couldn’t agree more. Sometimes the light saves us from the darkness but there are times when the light is corrupted by darkness.

  8. Beautifully Written, Pooja. You have a way of drawing the reader into the world you are describing.

    1. Thank you so much, really appreciate that compliment.

  9. Very well written. Touches ones heart. 🙂🙏

    1. Thank you so much 😊

  10. Some people get obsessed after they are left by their loved one. My mom never got over my dad leaving us. It destroyed her life.

    1. Wow, sorry to hear that. I’m sure it must have been difficult for you and everyone around your mum.

      1. I was in college when my dad left. It was painful and it’s been so sad to see mom suffer.

        1. That sounds tough. It always hurts to see someone you care about in pain.

  11. It took me some time to get over my divorce. But I made it through that tough time a better man.

    1. I’m sure it was difficult but I’m glad you were able to move on and start over.

      1. Life is much better now

        1. I’m really happy for you. That’s really great.

          1. It does feel good.

  12. Beautiful Poem. great work once again!!!

    1. Thank you so much!

  13. Beautiful lines. We often underestimate the power of our words.❤️✨

    1. Thanks so much. Yes, absolutely. Words have so much power 🥰

  14. Very intense emotions must have written a poem like this. It’s sad but very good.

    1. Thank you so much and yes the feelings were definitely intense.

  15. I got goosebumps when I read your poem.

    It reminded me of someone special to me who was always been there for me secretly and probably still is; I didn’t know that this someone would go to great lengths for me.

    And now I know, it makes me sad and feel really depressed because it feels like me knowing about that special someone’s existence severed our relationship like you said “Shattered that someone’s soul”.

    It’s hard to explain this kind of stuff.

    But your short poem nonetheless is what I need to remember that someone special to me.

    So thank you 🙏

    1. Thank you so much. Wow that’s a powerful share.

  16. Nice poem. I had a flashback of when I had to pick up my broken soul and move on. It was many years ago. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week.

    1. Thanks. Sorry you went through that but I’m sure you’re better for it. Have a great week too.

      1. I am. It was a learning experience. I learned how to love myself and accept myself regardless of what happened.

        1. That’s wonderful.

  17. This is very raw and emotional. I love it. All I can say as a response is that I hope you recover and refine your boundaries and find who you are again. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much and I’m on the road to that.

  18. This is intense and really well written!

    1. Thank you so much!

      1. You’re very welcome!

  19. Great poem! Sadly some people never get over a broken heart.

    1. Thank you! Yes, unfortunately it is like that sometimes 💔

  20. Wow. Sad poem, written with passion. Breakups are not easy to handle, but they are eye-openers.

    1. Thanks and yes absolutely. Even the bad ones become lessons we learn.

      1. So true, my friend. The bad ones can be a source of very useful lessons if we can learn from our mistakes.

  21. I’ve witnessed marriages like that. It happens more often than we would like to admit.

    1. True, I have witnessed some like that too. So sad.

  22. Great write, Pooja. That kind of darkness can cut deep for sure.

    1. Thank you so much. Yes, absolutely.

      1. You’re most welcome 🤗☀️

  23. picking up the pieces and watching for sharp edges. great poem Pooja❣️
