From the mind of a mild mannered maniac



A broken heart is all thats left
A  cracked and empty shell
You cheated, you lied, betrayed me,
And banished me to this hell!

Why, oh why did you hurt me so
Can’t you see what your deed has done
I only wanted to love you
You were always the only one

I couldn’t beg you not to leave
Would it make you want to stay?
Callous woman, killer of dreams
You were sure to get your way

I hate myself for loving you still
After all you’ve put me through
But shattered dreams hold little hope
Just a deeper shade of rue.

  1. I felt like this not once but twice, and finally healed. I was so involved with caring for Al that I was able to heal more quickly I think. i still want to find love but I don’t know anymore. I have been divorced six years this month, and still nothing, but hits from married guys. i don’t date married guys

    • Starts to feel like you’ll never get over it, doesn’t it? Then suddenly you find yourself too immersed in work or home and family to care anymore. I just haven’t bothered looking for the next Miss Right ever since.

  2. I like the emotion filtering through the cracks of this.
    Emotion is good it means we will heal its the apathy that kills the heart
    nicely written Cliff

    • Thanks,MDW, if I may call you by that name. I really thought I was over her, seems a fair bit of emotion remains even three years on.
