You’ve Broken My Heart

By Fiza Pathan

Top post on, the community of Indian Bloggers


So the light has passed out its flame at last,

This night is over you will never come again;

Let the ghost-like finger smoke turn my sky from black to blue

You’ve broken my heart and yet you have no clue.

I spin yarns to my spindle of relatives,

They cut my thread-like lies with golden scissors of truth

True they are-sure they are that I’m alone and you’re not around

You’ve broken my heart and run away with the pieces-without a memory to recollect, I treasure the imaginary pain of unuttered words.

Now all I do is weep and cry out tears towards my pox marked cheek,

The grooves fill up with salt water carried to the shores of red blood waters in my heart

I juggle with my feelings no more, as it is plain for all to see.

You’ve broken my heart and let its blood dry up under my skin.

Now a dried up fig towards the fruit table I lay,

Candy box empty on the dining table they wish to stay.

And contemplate old sagas of witches and warlocks, dungeons and dragons-a prince’s sweet kiss as sweet as chocolate resin.

But no more sweet tarts meet my tired eyes tonight-you’ve broken my heart and yet you have no clue.

    “you’ve broken my heart and yet you have no clue.” this line is very powerful and straight from the heart.
