A Shattering Heart
There's a need that is so profound
To simply topple to the ground
Finally alone at long last
My heart is free to shatter too like glass
No one else to watch and no one else to know
Of the tears that I cannot control
But it's a mess that I myself have made
There is no one else to blame
So may these tears quietly heal
All that i do not wish to feel
All it is that I cannot share
Things I wish nobody else to bear
Then I will quickly dry my eyes
And hope that no one else can see what I keep inside
