He didn't catch me
I fell to the cold pavement below
Grasping for anything
to break this free fall
or steady my step
I was taken by surprise
When it turned out this way
& now it's too late to go back
To that innocence lost
It hurts like salt
On an open wound
My tears burning down my face
With the ferocity of a forest fire ablaze
Slowly burning,
Stinging with the intensity of two extremes
Hot & cold
Bring me to the fire of burning love
To rejuvenate my soul & spirit
The storm is coming to wake the day
Like the matching torment 
In my soul
I cry out in anguish
Save me from this horrid pain
Why can't it be 'perfect' just like before?
Take me back to that place
Carefree bliss lost
But it was all a big lie
A hoax
My heart was ripped out
A big gaping hole to be filled
Never to fully trust again,
Secrets not to be told
My heart key,
I reach to pick it up,
But it crumbles in my grasp
Ashes blowing away
Gone with the winds of change
Until I can trust & love again
