My mind runs the words Over and over again. My heart aches to burst From all the raging feelings. The things I long to say The truths you need to hear, I fear that they just may Be your heartbreaker.
Big word, I know. Too many letters wasted On something that Doesn’t really matter. But I dare say though – It’s a word well-spent Describing you.
My emotions are running wild I can’t seem to rein them in. They just flow out my skin Like lava when a volcano erupts. I can see the smoke belching Out my ears and out my nose. My head aches like it’s on fire And ready to explode. My heart is contracting It’s pumping black, not red. I am so mad at you And you don’t even know.
It appeared like a star In a very dark night. It promised like a god That you will be all right. It lured you like a temptress To a place you’ve never been. It stirred you to a restlessness Such as one you’ve never seen. It warmed you up to a vision Where you live your heart’s desires. It then left you disillusioned When it vanished as you caught fire.
The heart still breaks Each time I think Of the day you broke it. The wound feels fresh As if it’s only yesterday That you inflicted it. It tears me up to endure Staying as we are, Knowing we are no longer. It drives me nuts Keeping the ties together When we both know We’d rather not.
It was a conversation I wish I never had. A dare against convention I thought was brave and rad. I let you see my future It was a big mistake. A call for you to nurture Left me reel at its wake. A year into that moment, I’d like to mark the day I chose to be transparent And you took it away.
I regret to say I am no longer as fond Of your rhyme as In the past But with your rhythm, I have fallen in love.
Nothing tests The strength of our ties More than adversity. In happier times Our affections are easy. But in bad, we let the pain Hold us in a bind And we lose sight Of the day the sun Takes over the night – We break loose, We let go; We lose heart To see it through.
Let go of that tear That you have kept from falling. And your heart – That sacred little place You have kept cold and unaffected – Let it ache with all your pain. Only then will you be free of him Only then will you breathe.
You used to be An integral part of me – You filled my veins With fire, You fanned my heart’s Desire, You took me up So high – You ruled me. And then – gone. I lost you along the way Or maybe you left, I stayed. Regardless how it Came to be I searched for you Each day And when I’m close You just Slip away.
