I heard...

I heard you had a broken heart,
-so I bought some tape.
And if that doesn't do the job,
I brought some glue, in case.

I heard you'd lost something quite dear,
when you had thought you'd found it.
-That a darkness had appeared,
and all your fears compounded.

I heard you gave it your best shot,
but then, the target moved.
Your plans were axed and hacked away,
then guzzled and consumed.

I heard your faith and hope had waned,
and life had lost its taint.
It seemed the trees hung low and swayed,
and colors bled to Grey.

I heard you want to run and hide,
for shelter from the storm.
But if you'd only come inside,
I'd keep you safe and warm.

I heard that Love produces fools,
and stalks in awkward silence.
But there is always one for you,
I promise you will find them!
