"Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding." -Khalil Gibran

Dear Heart,
I know you have fallen apart
But now is the time for a new fresh start
I keep trying to tell you not to fret
But that only made you more upset
You wouldn't listen to my common sense
And now you got a consequence
Your love was so blinding you couldn't see
And then you stopped using me
When you guys were together
I was so unused I was under the weather
But now that you are in love no longer
It is time you realize this will make you stronger
You lived through this relationship
And you will get through this hardship
And the pain
So please use me
Your Brain

The author's comments:
This has been inspired by a breakup with a guy that has left me heartbroken and devastated. It reflects how I was so blinded by love for this guy that I didn't see the telltale signs of him losing his feelings for me. It reminds me to use my brain in a relationship.

I really like this. At first when I began reading I was like okay another one of these you broke my heart poems. But then when I get farther into it I was like wow you actually have a point when you we're talking about using your brain instead of how you feel. Awesome Advice and Message. Great job Suggestion: maybe extending the letter and going in depth why your brain is better?

I love this.  The rhyming is well done and not forced, which makes the whole poem flow and fun to read.  The message is true and so real.  Plus I love the way it's written like a letter.  Awesome job :D
