Running Mascara

Broken hearts shatter like glass
The shards linger in the air,
I see your soul as you walk past
Cutting me with a stare
And every memory serves to harass
And get tangled in my hair

In the halls we once walked
All the memories that we stalked.
Put my mind at ease.
I beg of you.
No one understood me like you do.
The pain I felt, you felt it too.


I loved you once.

The clouds roll in
And the rain starts to fall
Now my new life can begin
But then you call.
You try to apologize
But I cannot hear the lies
Your unfaithful betrayal
Served as my demise.
The only thing that can save me
Is the whisper of the pen against the paper
Perhaps, finally, a voice might be heard.
