    heart

    Hi native speakers,
    Can I write a sentence like this?


    Parents usually put hopes on us. If we disappoint them, their hearts will seem to break into thousand pieces. (I want to mean we will break their hearts)

    Re: heart

    What about?

    Our parents place high expectation on us, and when we disappoint them, their hearts break--into a thousand pieces.
