When writing sad scenes I turn to music or memories that hurt. Another way of bringing emotions to the forefront is to write a poem about broken hearts. I am fortunate that my DH and I have been together for over 33 years and I do not have unrequited love issues.Therefore I need to search for things to aid me in that area.
Unrequited -not reciprocated/not returned.
by Glynis Smy
It is there, in shreds
on the floor,
I see it, it is still,
it is no more.
Can you not see it?
You trod upon my heart.
