The Magic of Making Up ebookIf you’ve ever been through a sad break-up with someone you’ve love, you may have written such a heartbroken poem.

You might have written such a poem for things like the loss of a pet or a family member, sadness at moving away from your friends, or any number of sad life happenings. But it seems that nothing inspires such sad poetry as a break-up or a divorce. Just as there are a few things that inspire love poetry quite like being in a happy, loving relationship.

Poetry is an excellent medium for self-expression and self-exploration. Unless you’re writing poetry with the hope of having it published one day, you can write poetry however you like, in the style that most reveals your innermost thoughts and feelings. It doesn’t have to be good poetry. You don’t have to understand any of the poetic terms or conventions like rhyme, meter or free verse. You don’t even have to have ever read a really good poem in your life to write a heartbroken poem that can help you feel better and maybe help you heal from the pain of the break-up you recently experienced.

An important early step in getting over a break-up or any sad situation is simply facing the pain of the loss of the other person's love.

While it might feel better to avoid dealing with the reality of the situation, you can’t really move past it without facing it and feeling the pain, at least for a while. So facing up to whatever painful situation is happening is a necessary step. A heartbroken poem can help you deal with those painful feelings when you’ve split with someone you love, when you need to heal from the breakup.

Don’t worry about whether it’s a good poem or not. No one else ever has to read your heartbroken poem. It’s for you and you alone to explore your feelings using the written word.

Just write down your feelings, as hard as that may be. You can write in plain language. Don’t try to imitate the poets of the 17th and 18th century. Write like you talk, and break the lines where it feels natural to you to pause in your peom. In fact, you can start by writing one huge paragraph filled with all your feelings and everything you want to express, just to get it out. Then you can go back and arrange your thoughts and feelings into a poem, into a nice-flowing work that only you will ever fully appreciate.

Once you’ve written a heartbroken poem, you might want to write more about different parts of the pain. That’s good to get it out. Get down everything you can, and that will help you to face the pain. Writing the poetry will probably be a very emotional time for you. Don’t try to stop it. Just let the pain out and you’ll be better able to move on, and take your time if needed.

If you decide you want to share your heartbroken poem, you can show family or friends. Or if you want to share it but not with anyone you know, you can put it online. There are websites designed just for such writing or you can start your own heartbroken poem blog for free at a site like You can upload your poetry for free and let other people know if you want to receive criticism or not. You might opt to not receive comments on your heartbroken poem and just enjoy the fact that you’ve shared your experience.
