Healing The Heartless

He had just met her

And claimed he wanted her heart

She made it known clearly

To him from the start

The last time it was broken

She left it where it fell

And it’s just made her cold,

Empty and heartless as hell

He said that he wanted

To nurture that space

And help her to grow

A new one in its place

She said that she would

Not make any promises

And was not too keen

On too many compromises

He picked up the pieces

Of her shattered heart

And bled red trying

To make whole its parts

But there was no way

For him to heal and mend

A task too great for him

With her unwilling to pretend

That anyone but herself

Could make right of all things

Which had cause her to feel

So hollow, before any healing begins.
