Are both natural? I've lost someone I love. If I say; It hurts my heart. My heart hurts.

"It hurts my heart," is more figurative than literal. It means that something hurts you emotionally. "My heart hurts," sounds literal, not figurative. This means that your actual organ is in pain. This is just how I understood them when I read them.

Neither phrase is natural. You should say "I'm heart-broken" in a formal context. In informal British English, you'd say "I'm gutted."

I think you are translating Turkish expressions. We don't say things like this in English.. it seems very poetic or dramatic - in love songs maybe... We just say 'I'm so sad' or something
