In days gone by, not so long ago, seems like yesterday, it could have been;
Pieces were thrown to the wind, pieces that have yet to be found again;
There was a giving inside, a landslide of sorts, a bombing from the inside out…
No need to gather broken pieces, lost to the taker, no doubt…

Oh the unbelievable rhythm of pain that beats within, searing, little cuts;
Ifs and whys and whens, hows and wheres and whats, constantly saying “But?”;
Gnawing stomach full of worry and fear, teeth gritting and grinding in unbelief.
So much anger seethes, life seems like a death, breathing gulps of grief…

What makes a sane person give that one piece of themselves out, the heart?
Silly, sad person, look what you did, should have stopped before the start!
What causes a soul to believe that someone would forever even care?
Should have run away, far, far away, what is left will now never be shared.

Safe though now, who would dare to enter, theres not enough space for two.
Its untouchable, not up for sale, no way in, theres really nothing anyone can do;
Its locked up anyway, can’t reach it, were you to scale past Heavens walls…
Try if you like, it will be to no avail, never again will this heart fall.

Once it was so free, loved with everything possesed, but not today.
Look, don’t touch, see, don’t want, want, can’t have…loss is all that remains…
Need, need?, Need what?, more unbearable destruction?, you speak pain!
Living, breathing, doing ok, right here, all alone, it’s where I must stay…safe…
