The Truth

I could say I have my reasons,
And tell you I meant this to be.
Or simply speak the truth,
In the hopes that you may see.


Nothing has ever been easy for me.
Few things have ever been good.
That was, until I came across you,
And I felt that it finally could.


I didn’t mean to deceive you.
I didn’t mean to disappear.
And I wish that you could hear me,
When I tell you I feel it here.


In the tatters of my very soul.
In my bones, and in every part.
So know that I am sharing with you,
The cruelty of a broken heart.
