Forlorn is a collection of poetry for the broken-hearted, for all who have lost love or never had their love requited. That once-blissful state of being in love, of feeling intensely alive, of feeling like life has true meaning because another needs you and wants you, has given way to sorrow, a feeling akin to death, because that person who made you so important no longer feels that way about you. We have all experienced romantic love and the pain that follows the disintegration of said love. These poems give a voice to your suffering, cry with you, bleed with you. Read the words and take comfort – you are not alone.
