Devastating Heartbreak Poems
Poems about Lost Love
I have noticed a trend in my assigned reading. The theme of my English class is love—I chose this theme because at the very least, year-olds care about sex and death. The students usually notice this about three weeks into the semester. They joke, but inevitably, each student finds that at least one of these heartbreak poems resonates with them. I hope that among this selection, you find something. This is one of the most resonant heartbreak poems that I have ever read. It plays on the forms of the litany poem and the damsel-in-distress narrative.
Is it better to have loved and lost? The following classic poems suggest not. The poet tells his erstwhile lover that the best thing for them to do is to end their relationship, shake hands, and walk away — though in the closing sestet Drayton dares to dream that the relationship may yet be salvaged. This poem by an often-overlooked voice in Romantic poetry, John Clare , strikes to the heart of what many of us have felt at some time in our lives: having kept his love of somebody a secret, the poet is doomed to transfer or deflect that love onto other people who remind him of his first, true love. Not so much a lost love as a love never had, this one — but poignant and affecting nevertheless.
The loss of a lover, whether because they have passed on or for any other reason is a heartbreaking experience. Some never fully recover. There might always be a small place in your heart that holds the pain of this experience. This is natural and fine. Even when you find another person to love, it is OK to hold a place for the lover that has passed. You shared something profound together.
