how do respond
when your heart was broken
like a glass
shattering on the ground

what do you do
when you are lost
and alone

how do you cope
when you are thrown
in an oasis of lies

how do you speak
when you are hushed
and you are being eaten
away by the hate

why do you live
when it is taken away
ripped out from its roots

when do you give up
when you try and try
and fail
and lost

how do you trust
when the trust was broken
like the chains on a lock
surrounding a prison

When does the hurt stop
the throb of your heart
because of the tainted blood
mixed with tears

why does it feel so good
to be hurt
by yourself
when you know you have done nothing wrong

when do the tears stop
and the black under your
hallow eyes

why does it hurt
when you have done nothing
only been a toy
to swat to the ground

Why did he do that
why do I care
why is it over
but the pain is still there
