Ripped

She remained silent, listening intently

to the few words he spoke.

 The less he spoke, her fears overwhelmed

and her worst nightmares came true.

He ripped her heart into pieces slowly,

and left them scattered,

Only once she started feeling hollow,

she saw him for who he was.

Yet,regardless of the burning rage inside,

she loved him in pieces.

    I like how in the first 3 lines it creates this imagery of the slowing heart, as in he is draining her life force.

    The 4th line implies the moment that she’s essentially “killed” by her love for him and seems to be further emphasised by the heart-stopping period at the end of the line.

    The next 4 lines almost feel like a flashback, with all the pieces of their relationship falling into place.

    The last 2 lines are hauntingly beautiful for the effect they bring across, that shattered lover who still loves.

    Amazing poem, I really love it.
