A Used Heart Playing The Blues

This instrument called my heart That used to play love songs just for you Is now old,worn and tattered Barely even able to carry a tune Beautiful love songs it used to play Have now been turned to blues From a woman I used to love That has torn my heart in two Melodies that would always flow From a heart that was always so true Now broken it hurts to even play From a heart that's been so abused Through loneliness a heart gets worn Without all the love it was so used to Leaving beautiful memories that are now forlorn Almost unable to even play the blues A sad song will still play on Through these words that I call the blues From a heart that used to play love songs With all my heart,that were just for you

    You've surely freed your blues on this beautiful verse! It flows so well, just like a sad song. I could feel your pain. .... Always, Laura
