If you have ever gone through a bad breakup with someone you love, you may have written some broken heart poems to help you heal. You have written a poem after the loss of a family member or pet, after you moved away from friends, or any other sad event in your life.
But nothing seems to spur on you wanting to write poems for a broken heart more than after a break up, separation, or divorce. Poetry is a fantastic way to express yourself. Unless you plan on getting them published some day, you can write broken heart poems anyway you like. It does not have to good.
You do not need to understand the any of the jargon like rhyme, free verse or meter. You don’t even have to read any good poems in your life to write poems for a broken heart that will help you feel better and overcome the painful breakup.
A vital early step in mending a broken heart is to simply face the pain. While it may feel better to just avoid the heartache, you will never move on if you cannot deal with your pain and emotions, and understand the situation better. And a good way to face the situation is to write some broken heart poems, where you can release your emotions onto paper.
