A broken body A shattered heart A lonely soul A dashed hope is how his heart found mine Found to mould what is left of it More than a mate he is Care and concern he brought along with enduring love to flavour them A perfect body A warm blood A big heart and a youthful look all sealed in one body With promise of more A heart broken by love It’s said can only be healed by love But this duo, A broken body and shattered heart this cannot heal. and what can heal it I know not A crushed hope it can fix not This love is not mine she sings at dawn and dusk Oh, how I have waited so long for you Now that I can have it not Now that I can keep it not It comes a calling on a heart oozing blood on a body not fit for a savage. Love for a spurting heart Passion for a damaged body Oh fate! Oh love! How cruel art thou.
