Quotes and Messages for a Broken Heart

  • If love were a man, I would hang him to death because of how much heartache he's given me. If passion were a woman, I'd tell her how much I enjoyed her when I was in a relationship with you. Love and passion, oh what a cruel combination.
  • There's nothing worse than a lost friend and a scathing heartbreak, and with you gone now, I have experienced both.
  • There's no more bitter pill than a broken heart, and no sweeter thought than to think that it is a passing nightmare.
  • I changed myself for you, and you changed yourself for someone else. How ironic.
  • I can't believe you broke my heart as if you were smashing a piece of glass. Glass can be rebuilt, but what about my heart?

  • Every night I console myself by saying that our break-up is just a bad nightmare and a figment of my imagination. But I wake up to realize that it is the bitter truth. And there's nothing that I can do to make the pain go away.
  • You were my reason to live, laugh and love. Now you've gone away and I don't know what to do. Is life really worth living without you?
  • When the twain shall meet again, we may be able to create the spark of our romance once more.
  • I've heard that the easiest way of dealing with heartbreak is moving on. But after you broke my heart, I have reached the end of the world. Where else can I move on?
  • If I could get one chance to change anything in my life, I would have changed our relationship so that we would have never come to the point that we have right now. If only I had that second chance.

What do I do? Where do I go? How do I get on with life?

  • A broken heart is the worst punishment of love. You've taught me the cost of being in love with someone like you who knows no mercy or forgiveness.
  • I will always cherish the time I spent with you and the dreams I saw with you. What I won't cherish is the way we parted ways, dunking out all memories in the sewer called heartbreak.
  • Just like there's a crackling sound when a beautiful vase breaks, my body experienced a thunderous shake when my heart shattered into a million pieces.
  • I become sad when I think about how you broke up with me – not because you broke my heart but because our beautiful relationship couldn't go the distance.
  • I always thought we were invincible, but I was wrong. Everything that goes up has to come down and so did our relationship. I am happy that I had a chance to share a little bit of my life with a beautiful person like you. But I am sad you threw me away like a rag doll.

  • I wish there were an antibiotic for curing heartbreak. Because, as far as I know, it's the most painful disease in the whole world.
  • Who will I call names now? Who will I fight with? Who will I make up with? Who will I make love to? Along with your own exit from my life, you have taken everything away with you. I feel like an empty soul in a world of hate.
  • Until yesterday, you filled my heart with love and happiness. Today there is nothing but hate and vengeance. I don't want you back, I just want to know the reason why you broke my heart.
  • I broke off my relationship with the rest of the world, thinking it would strengthen ours. Today, I have neither. Little did I know that my sacrifices would come back and haunt me.
  • I wish there were a magical switch in my life that I could press to erase all the memories I have with you.

A heartbreak seems as if the very world you knew, has come to an end.

  • They say that time heals all wounds. But I don't think that I will be able to ever forget the heartbreak and the heartache that you have caused me. I challenge Time to shower its miracle on me.
  • My heart tells me that you're still in love with me and always will be. No matter how far you go, a little part of me will always be stuck to you. I still love you, but I hate you for breaking my heart.
  • The more I think about you the more I feel that I deserved you for a lifetime. It's unfortunate that you didn’t appreciate my presence in your life. I hope that someday you will, but it will be too late.
  • Without you in my life, a minute seems like an hour and days seem like weeks. How do you think I am going to spend the rest of my life without you?
  • God gave you plenty of beauty, intelligence, generosity, and love but forgot to give you one thing – Mercy. If you had even an ounce of mercy in your heart, you would not have treated me the way you have today.

Why did he break up with me? What have I done to deserve this?

  • When I think about the promises we made about staying with each other for the rest of our lives, I laugh out loud. Were we so immature, not to have seen this heartache coming? Were we so naïve not to know that love lasts forever only in fairytales? At least I was.
  • After our break-up, the only reason I've been constantly smiling is because I know that the minute the smile from my face fades away, it's going to be scars, tears and fright for me all the way.
  • There is a whole world of pain, hurt, heartache, and torture hidden behind my little smile that no one knows of but you.
  • A person can rise above any pain in life, but the agony caused by love is the most difficult to surpass. I only hope that no one does to you what you have done to me today.

      I am going through a divorce right now and I am trying like hell to put myself together. I can see that the only person we can depend on is ourselves. My heart just feels bruised and discarded, but I am slowly learning that people are capable of anything, no matter how secure they make you feel.

      I totally feel you "princesswithapen"..I've been through so much myself & this expression of yours only reiterates my thoughts. Please try to repay the gift of God that is life, & respect it & survive & find happiness in every little thing you come across, a nice meal, a passionate hobby, favorite music or a few good drinks even...we must move on, must survive, must live...
