Broken

Salty tears and soggy pillows

are all that still remain

Her heart has shattered

empty, mere shards are all that’s left

 

A broken promise

shattered dreams

hope and faith have fled

 

But what’s left of her still yearns for him

to feel her lover’s touch

For what they had cannot be replaced

it’s a legacy no one could touch

 

it’s irony is epic

before him she’d never truly loved

Now her heart is left bleeding

like a wounded turtle dove

 

YOU SAY

You say you miss me

Can’t get me out of your head

Still, you lay in another woman’s bed

 

You say I have no idea

don’t understand how you feel

Perhaps I would if you shared

 

You say that you love me

that you want us to work

all I see are broken promises, empty words

 

You say you share with me

how you think and feel

after all the lies, it’s hard to know what’s real

 

You say that you’ll show me

by all means, do try

I need more than words to keep my cheeks dry

 

You say you can’t accept things

yet want to be my one and only

You always were, You’re the one who left me lonely

 

You say what you think I want to hear

but can not back it up with action

to my heart, I will not hold it near
