So silent the words spoken
Quietly, piece by piece I fall apart
Helpless to do anything
For you were never within my grasp
I’m afraid to hurt
I cannot cry no matter how hard I try
My heart feels so full
I choke on my love for you
I dare not speak of all that my heart wishes it could say
I’m overwhelmed by loss
Drowning in a sea of sorrow
I cry out for help
But my pleas are overshadowed by your love for another
I wilt like a rose on a hot summer day
I die a thousand deaths in the warmth of your embrace
Yet unable to let go
My wounds have festered
At a loss
I do not know which way to turn
All I can do is turn to you
Save me! Save me!!
Love me! Love me!!
Let my heart be all that you require
Let me be enough
I long for happiness
To know joy like I once did
So far away
So long ago
Those happy days seem to be
And all that is left is me and the pieces of a heart I can not mend.
