Which being restrained, a heart is broken.

Heart of my heart, we are one with the wind,
One with the clouds that are whirled o'er the lea,
One in many, O broken and blind,
One as the waves are at one with the sea!
Ay! when life seems scattered apart,
Darkens, ends as a tale that is told,
One, we are one, O heart of my heart,
One, still one, while the world grows old.

 
Alfred Noyes
 

O! many a shaft at random sent
Finds mark the archer little meant!
And many a word, at random spoken,
May soothe or wound a heart that's broken!

 
Walter Scott
 

Unbearable becomes the pain in my heart  
When I think of my people, broken down,
broken by disease in mind and limb.
