Broken Heart of Love – A Poem

Broken Heart of Love

This searing pain in my heart
I wish it would go away
I pray for it to leave me
But it is love
I would be hollow without it

I watch you drowning
in a sea of turmoil and fear
I reach out my hand,
the one connected to my broken heart
“It’s okay, the sailing’s fine,” you say

I walk away, thinking perhaps
My eyes deceive me and you are not
drowning, or else why
would you say otherwise?
I know you would not lie

But still this pain
deep down inside my aching heart
reminds me
that you are not fine,
the sea is not calm

The storm rages
but I cannot rescue you
You cannot see my hand
reaching through the darkness
beckoning you to dry land

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    • Thank you. I really appreciate the encouragement. I just write what God lays on my heart. If I am an exceptional writer and poet it is because He is an exceptional God. Peace, Linda

  1. Wow Linda . ..I just didn’t expect this. It’s so powerful and it gives me a glimpse of what He must feel, reaching out to us. Also . ..just a bit ago I read a heartbreaking letter from a friend about some of what has been going on with one of her sons. This just fits that situation so well. Thank you for writing what He asks you to. God bless you!
