Chapter 4 – Heartbreak

Partial Chapter from the book ''Love Poems: Are You The One?''

Chapter 4 – Heartbreak

Heartbreak is one of the most painful emotions that can be felt.  I would not wish heartbreak on anyone.  It’s hard enough to fall in love with the right person.  When you add heartbreak into the mix, this creates fear, baggage and obstacles for any future love interests that you will have.

Have you ever been cheated on?  Have you ever cheated?  And if so, what made you do so?  This is just one of many things that can cause heartbreak.  Heartbreak can cause hurt and feelings of lost after the end of a relationship. 

It’s hard to know when to end a relationship.  Before I’ve ended previous relationships, I wondered several things.  Is this the right thing to do?  Am I rushing to judgment?  Should I try to make this love work?  Although those questions were thought about, the heartbreak at that time was inevitable. 

I’ve seen other people deal with heartbreak in different ways.  Some people jump right into something with a new person to help them get over the past person.  Others take more time to heal and they need time before trusting again.  Personally, when I’ve gone through heartbreak, I gave myself time to heal and I put closure to my past.  I’m a naturally compassionate person, so I don’t believe in bringing past baggage to a new relationship.


If you’re dealing with heartbreak, don’t suppress it.  Allow yourself to deal with it so that you can move past it.  With the right amount of time, heartbreak can heal.   It doesn’t mean that you have to stop loving the person.  However, you can get to a point where the heartbreak doesn’t have to paralyze you and poison your heart with fear of being hurt again.  This is the monster called Heartbreak.

You’re the Only One

You’re the Only One

You’re the only one
That I’m thinking of
We’ve fallen in love
You’re like the stars shining above

From the very first moment
That I saw your face
I knew that moment was it
Everything fell into place

When we first kissed
Everything was confirmed
This was no accident
We were comfortable with no concerns

As time moved on
Our connection stayed strong
You mean the world to me
I’ve seen how much we’ve grown

We keep each other centered
We have honesty
No bad thing will enter

You’re the only one for me

Love Me For Life or Let Me Go

 Love Me For Life or Let Me Go

Is this just my imagination?
Am I driving myself to unwarranted tears?
You confused me with our conversation
Will we have regret in a few years?

I wish you would communicate
And tell me how you feel
Tell me what is going on
Tell me what is truly real

I feel love from you
When we kiss and when we touch
We can be around each other for hours
We never get tired no matter how much

I don’t know what to do
Other than slowly back away from you
And if you truly want my heart
Then you’ll fight for it before we grow apart

You won’t let me walk out that door
Without crying that you want my love even more
And you already know my position
Our fate lies with your decision

I will leave our relationship in your hand
It will be your choice if you want long term romance
I feel what’s in your heart
It’s time to show me so that we have a real chance

So if you love me, please make a careful decision
I rather love you from a distance
Than to hate you when you’re within inches

Love me for life or let me go

Chapter 5 – Reconnect or Move on

Partial Chapter from the book ''Love Poems: Are You The One?''


Chapter 5 – Reconnect or Move on

I’ve been through heartbreak before and I know some of you have too.  One of the hardest decisions that some people have to make is what to do when someone you used to love resurfaces.  If it was someone that you deeply cared about and was in love with at some point of time before, it’s very hard to automatically keep that door shut.  Of course, there are exceptions depending on how the relationship ended. 

One of the questions that comes to mind is, ‘’Do we reconnect or move on?’’  I’ve dealt with this situation before in my life.  The first question that comes to mind is, why did the relationship end?  Was it over a trust issue?  Or was it the wrong timing?  It’s very nerve wrecking to wonder about the consequences of rekindling love with a past relationship. Will it be the same outcome that leads to the end of the relationship or will it actually workout? 

When I was faced with this situation, I asked myself two things.  Am I different now?  Is my past love different as well?  Did either one of us grow or make any changes?  If we are the same people, what is going to make the situation work a second time around?  Every situation is different. 

In my opinion, I think that it’s best to make sure that any decision you make isn’t based on just emotions.  The challenge is to make a decision based on balanced judgment.  This means that you should do your best to not only take emotions into consideration, but also look at the practical elements around the situation as well.


One question that you should ask yourself is, ‘’Am I a better person with or without this person in my life?’’  The answer to that question will help your decision as you decide if you should give your past love a try or if you should keep that door closed.  What will the answer be? Should we ‘’Reconnect or Move on?’’
