No Such Thing!

I was born with a broken heart. So you can’t brake what’s been broken from the start. I was born between two people torn apart. Why love? You can’t feel something not real. Why hurt? I’m a brick wall that feels nothing at all. You are ready to walk out that door. You want me to say the words That can make you stay. What fore? For a while those words were so easy to ignore. All I can do is ask you to stay. I can’t lie to you that way. Please, Don’t cry! You don’t know how much I’ve tried. Love has never been an important part of what’s inside my heart. I thought you knew that from the start. You say you love me. This just cannot be! One time I believed in love Until he made me see. Every night he beat me he said “Who could possible love you.”? That’s when I knew. Love cannot be true. Then my daddy went away. I learned a lot that day. So walk away! I was never taught how to feel. I hope you find something true and real. Don’t act so sad. At least you got out before it got bad. You are the only heart I knew to be true But understand I CANNOT LOVE YOU!
