Can you “fix” a broken heart?

A heart is said to be “broken” at the death of a loved one.

How do you “fix” a heart that’s been broken?

How do you calm an anguish soul?

How do you wipe out the misery in this world?

Is there any way out?


Not every kid gets a loving family,

Not every soul rests in peace,

Not every heart is filled with joy,

Not every person has it easy.


So, what do you do, when all you can see is anguish?

When all around you is filled with grief,

When you look around, and you see families falling apart,

Doesn’t that make you sad?


I see heartbreak, can’t I glue it back?

Or is it beyond repair, what can I do to not make you sad?


They say “Be positive”, but how? There’s darkness everywhere I see.

All the beautiful flowers that wither away….Can I do anything to make them stay?


Because not everybody gets luxuries,

Not everybody has a place called “home”. 

Not everybody knows what it’s like to “live”,

And not everybody knows the way.


And all I want to know is- Can you fix a broken heart?

I see pain, can I do anything to cover it up with a soft layer of love? A bit of hugs?

It’s not the death that tears me up, it’s the grief, the pain that fills the air in the aftermath.

I look around, and all I see is grief. 

How can you dance in the rain, knowing it’s the cause of the flood in someone’s eyes?

How can you be positive in a situation you know is painful to some,

And it’s not the death that breaks me up, it’s the heartbreak and pain.


Not every child can see the world,

Not every heart can see the true you,

Not every “different” being gets loved,

They are all on their own.


And in the end, all I want to know is, Can you fix a broken heart?

Can you heal a torment?

Can you mend agony?

Can you wipe out all afflictions? 

Can you make a fresh start?

Can you handle it while all’s falling apart?

Can you “fix” a broken heart?

  1. I can understand everything you wrote and what you must be thinking, My Mystic Inkslinger 💙💙💙
    This is life, negative and positive both exist
    Like light and dark
    Someone is happy, someone is sad about the same thing
    And in the end, nobody is actually happy what we say in the true sense, the actual definition does not exist
    All are running a race
    Trying to find the answers to many questions
    We still live, we still fight, we still try
    Maybe that is the last try
    As you grow more, you will understand it more than
    Loved the way you wrote it
    I hope you are good
    Lots of love to you
    Take care 💙💙💙🤗🤗

  3. Very well penned! 😍All i can say is yes one can fix a broken heart ,I’ve learned that When you turn your attention to an
    other person especially someone who is struggling with the same kind of pain you forget about yourself for a split moment. And let’s face it, that, on some days, feels like a miracle.
    The more you have loved and have allowed yourself to suffer because of your love, the more you will be able to let your heart grow wider and deeper. When your love is truly giving and receiving, those whom you love will not leave your heart even when they depart from you. The pain of rejection, absence, and death can become fruitful. Yes, as you love deeply the ground of your heart will be broken more and more, but you will rejoice in the abundance of the fruit it will bear.

    1. Thank you!
      Wow! First of all, thank you soooooooo much for this incredibly exhilarating comment. I think you gave me a piece of the answer I wanted😉
      And secondly, now that think upon what you’ve written, I agree with you. Out heart does stop thinking about itself when it comes across someone who is more broken!
      Thank you so much, for everything!🤗💜

      1. They don’t have things we have…. But we ourselves can be the things they want…. They just need love, care and someone who is understanding enough… If we ever come across someone like that, we should give them all our love and care! Be kind, be caring! 💗😊😀

      2. Okay, this makes me feel better😊💕
        But we can’t be what they actually need…And there are people losing their loved ones, everyday. What about that? We can’t fix that….The heartbreak that death causes is something that takes time to heal…And it never completely heals. There are marks left. What do you do when you lose someone you love? How do you deal with that grief and pain?
        There are people who are born and their parents leave them, we can give them love and be caring and kind, but can that compare to the love our parents give us? And I think you are right, we should do all we can…Thank you so much😊💕


      3. Nothing can match the love our parents give us… True… But we, as friends should give them as much as we can…. As for grieving over someone’s loss… Hmm…. I think we should leave that person alone for sometime…. Let them cry as much as they want. Let them get rid of their grief. Then maybe, as time passes, the pain will heal a little. Of course, marks will never completely heal. They leave behind something or the other. But we should try to overcome that grief and move on… Because grieving continuously will only make matters worse!

      4. But how do you live, knowing that someone is suffering so much? True, grieving forever is not the solution, but how do you live with it? With the pain, the guilt, the heartbreak? I think this is something love can heal. The empty spaces, the cracks in your heart, love fills all of them.


    1. Thank you. But that’s what makes me sad. I have everything I could dream of….And then there are people who never get so loved like I do. It makes me feel so sad that I have stuff others don’t. Thank you for your super sweet message, tho.

  4. Poignant and heart-wrenching, it really pulled my heartstrings. You write beautifully, Rishika. Keep Writing!
    Stay safe and sound!
    Stay healthy and happy!

    Enigma 🙂 ❤


    1. Thank you so much, Maseera…❤
      Yes, I am well…Thank you for advising me to write about it, I am not sure if you remember but we had a conversation a long time back, regarding the beautiful play you wrote, that’s when you suggested I write about it, so thank you! 🤗💕


      1. Oh yes! Indeed, it was so long ago. I’m so glad that you actually did write about it. That makes me feel very honored. Such a wonderful job, keep it up Rishika. ✨🙏🏻

    1. It is? Thank you so much for your lovely comment….I think it has helped find the a piece of the answer❤
      You felt sad? Maybe because it’s about death and heart break? I’ll try to write something hopeful next time😊


  5. Beautifully written! Do we grow from all the pain, or is it merely suffered in vain? No, never in vain, for through the pain a more beautiful being emerges. Broken hearts open the door to new beginnings in which another will ne’er ask us to feign when pleasant feelings begin to wane. by tkbrown (2 August 2020).

  6. It is sooooo well written Rishika. I too missed reading your words. Just that I too have to work for a living😊
    Plus I wanted to edit and complete my book. I’ve done that now and have rejected two publishers😊
    Looking for the perfect one.

  7. You’re able to distinguish pain just because you’ve seen love. I’m not sure if it can be fixed completely. But, a broken heart can be mended when opened to share or sealed with more love! ❤

    Amazing write-up!
