When the heart is empty and wounded.

When the heart is empty and wounded
when ones weary with sorrow and pain
when the stoic statues inside crumble
then tears, shall thy sweet cheeks stain.
When the days are laden with sorrow
when the petals of a promise have died
the dreams that you dream have vanished
like the salt waters of tears that you cried.

When hope turns to a sour bitter bile
that sucks comfort from a bottle or two
and the face that you see in the mirror
reminds you of someone, but who?
Its not the girl who once was so happy
didn’t understand the sadness she saw
but now life has thrown you a lesson
and like sushi it’s emotion served raw.

“forget it and leave it behind you”
but betrayal is a cross hard to bare
and even when its burden seems lighter
you can’t but think that life is not fare.
Will spring ever come to your garden
will the frost on your heart melt away
will the sun ever shine on your shadows
or will winter forever here stay.

Curse the things that caused me all this
curse the moments, so alone, feeling lost
but I will wallow no longer in misery
waste my life would be too high a cost.
So tomorrow I’ll put on nice makeup
get my hair done, highlights and all
gently turn over and begin a new page
from these miserable moments I’ll crawl.

When the heart is empty and wounded.
