A Broken Heart

Its been a while since I saw you
Like a dead, broken flower by my doorway
Of all the times I had seen you
I couldn’t recall you looking as miserable as you did that day

Saying you lost everything you held dear
The memory still haunts you
You travelled across worlds and worlds just to be here 
Only to find nobody who wants you

The one you loved left you for somebody else
Pain never felt so agonising, it made your heart ache
While you were too young to know what love was
And too immature to endure heartbreak

But ponder, my dear, about all the lessons they had taught
The ecstasy they gave you; before they were gone
It feels so much better to say thanks and let go
Than to curse and hold on

I wont cease the tears, I’d let them leak
These tears will calm your soul, they’d leave you strong
People cry, not because they’re weak
but because they’ve been strong for too long

But do get up and fight, not people, however,
Its the weak who resort to violence
Your greatest foe is your fear
Your fear and your silence

So speak even if your voice shakes
Beginnings are always messy and it may take a while
Even if they left, there’s always something to be thankful for
Don’t just go, you too are somebody’s reason to smile

If the oceans can calm themselves, so can you
Everybody has a reason to be alive, and you do too
Me? I’d continue to write what you feel but are unable to say
Listen to my words, but do not look for me, look for you...
