The World Broken

The World Broken No greater sorrow has the world known Than the feeling of unrequited love For when else is a man's heart blithely thrown On jagged rocks from precipice above? A symphony of darkness and despair The black crescendo overwhelming thought Emptiness expands with each breath of air The soul, it weeps for all the havoc wrought A smile forms a ramshackle disguise A melancholy fugue assumes control How many times can shattered hope arise A broken heart be put together whole? Entombed in an infernal vault of night It seems I am forsaken by the light
