Heartbreak

The pain is so strong, so deep,
I can’t help but to think, and cry, and end up losing sleep.
In my dreams, my nightmares, my thoughts, running throughout my head,
I can’t get it out, it keeps coming back, to the point where I wish I were dead …inside.
I wish I could control the tears, the ache, the pain,
But the depth is so strong I don’t know if I can come out this time okay.
Heartbreak, one of the main sorrows,
Cuts so deep, but wear a mask and no one knows.
I won’t try suicide again, it’s pointless,
I’m just tired of getting hurt over and over again.
Why do I attract pain to my life?
Why must I be such a masochist when I already know… what’s going to happen in the end….
I feel broken, I feel shattered, to millions of pieces,
My heart was taken from my chest, and ripped to shreds.
Shreds were set on fire into ashes, 
Spit on and walked on… in nothing but a mess.
You wonder why I don’t trust anyone? Because it always ends the same,
No matter what I do, what I say, it all ends in my pain.
People take, and take, and take, I spread myself thin.
She waits for the moment to strike, playing victim,
I started this, I started that, and you believe it.
You are blind to others planting false seeds of doubt, 
You start to wonder if you want out.
You’re under her spell, you believe the lies,
The homewrecker has you in her binds.
She toys with you, like a marionette,
She’s manipulates you like a puppet.
She has you wrapped around her little finger… fool!
Yet you don’t see what she has turned you into.
You hurt me so deeply, what am I supposed to do?
You’ve broken me so bad,… How will I ever trust you…….. again
You stick up for her like she is yours, but she’s not I was,
Guess that’s over now, I lost, she won.
She got you away from me, both of you betrayed me,
I can barely look at you without crying.
I’m falling to pieces again, but this is far worse,
I loved you, still do, though you’d never accept it, cuz you’re afraid of more.
The pain is so strong, so deep,
I can’t help but to think, and cry, and end up losing sleep.
In my dreams, my nightmares, my thoughts, running throughout my head,
I can’t get it out, it keeps coming back, to the point where I wish I were dead …inside.
I wish I could control the tears, the ache, the pain,
But the depth is so strong I don’t know if I can come out this time okay.
Heartbreak, one of the main sorrows,
Cuts so deep, but wear a mask and no one knows.
