Fragile poem by Iris Carden

You knew my heart was fragile
yet you broke it.
You knew the word would hurt
yet you spoke it.

All that I ever had
you just took it.
I sent you all my love 
you forsook it.

Now, though bent and broken
I carry on.
I am so much stronger
now you are gone.

While you’re here…
