A Crushed Heart
Solitary footsteps squeak across the floor,
echoes of laughter crying out for more,
dying embers slowly fade to dust,
gone the flame you lovingly did trust.
Where's the joy that somehow held your hand,
turned to sorrow you now understand,
silent tears that roll down your face,
sobs of pity your shoulders tried to shake.
Lost within your soul your memories lay,
thoughts of love turned cold on your knees you pray,
the light that warmed my heart had frozen into grief,
alone and afraid shaking like a leaf.
Bitter days ahead can't seem to ease my mind,
trapped inside my past my life now in a bind,
some-where's gone my love crushed full of doubt,
in tears I search alone a waiting heart without.
