"Be careful what you set your heart upon - for it will surely be yours.'
James A. Baldwin


That little heart of mine
I tried to let it shine
Put it in the hands of the one I loved
Now I wish I could go back in time

That little heart of mine
Got crushed by the guy
That helped me
To open up
My innocent eyes

That little heart of mine
Has been smashed so many times
It's been persecuted and terrorized
Every moment of my life

That little heart of mine
Can barely breathe one more time
I want to end it now
But I can't let go like this
I just hate them now

That little heart of mine
Is no more then an empty beat
No reason to live anymore
Yet I can't stop the cries of defeat

That little heart of mine
Has left me broken and dying
Not gonna fight it back once again
Gonna let it consume my mind

Yes that little heart of mine
Is the strongest one that I know
It still beats lifelessly
Even as it lies on the bloody floor

For the sake of that little heart of mine
I will end this now
Not gonna write
Yet another word
About how broken I am now
Just gonna let the tears roll down my cheeks
Let the pain run through my heart
Goodbye goodbye to all of you
I'm done fighting
The end of the the start

Because that little heart of mine
I'm done letting it shine
Done letting it shine
Done letting it shine
Done letting it shine


The author's comments:
I wrote this after a horrific breakup. He decided he loved our best friend more than me. Yet today I can only thank him for teaching me my first lesson in a relationship. Don't fall for someone unless you know they want to catch you. Unless you want to walk alone...

This poem is actually a ballad sung to the tune of That Little Light of Mine but it doesn't match the beat of the song exactly. It's supposed be contradicting itself. Please comment and view some of my other work :]
