What Heart?

What heart have I to give to thee?
Each day my pain increases
Love is shattered like shards of glass
That's broken into pieces

Now love is stained forever more
I do not know desire
The flame that burned inside my soul
Is now a dying fire

Trust and hope has disappeared
I cannot believe your lies
My heart no longer beats the same
It sees your thin disguise

Your lungs inhale the poisoned truth
It lingers on your breath
The truth you tell is filled with pain
That caused commitment's death

What heart have I to give to thee?
It's now a blackened void
A heart that once was filled with love
Is now forever destroyed
