Queen of a Broken Heart

I am the queen of my heart,
but I accidentally gave you the key.
You didn’t know you had it,
You never knew you used it.
However, I stand looking
at the shattered pieces,
that will never be the same.

I made a promise to myself that
no one could ever penetrate me
the way you did.
Presently, that promise is defective.

When happy-endings are on the line
You’re the one who comes
to mind.
All that could have been, has faded
In you words of silence.
One more night, one more dream wasted on you.

No one can save me the pain
you’ve caused me.
Don’t try to apologize or
Make things right
It’s too late.

In the end
I hope she’s all you
couldn’t find in me.

Maybe the timing wasn’t perfect,
But I think it would’ve been worth it.

For now,
I’ll lock up the hurt
Drown out the fantasy, that will never exist,
Put on a façade and
Act like everything is okay.

And I’ll
be queen
of a now broken heart.
