    In a span of 52 weeks
    I watched 365 days go by...
    I wish u understood the private
    tragedy.

    I desire you to feel the way
    I felt,
    See what I saw.

    My mama to cry nevah
    fo no man,cuz tha salt
    in tears would only make
    me bitter.

    I wither in the midst of myself
    I unravel like threads in the
    belly of misery.
    Heartbreak feels like this

    There ain't no makeuptobreakup
    no I'msodamnsorryforgivemesex
    Its more complex than simplistic.

    Alone in this
    I wonder if anyone ever felt pain
    like this.
    No more love songs
    no dreaming eyes
    or the sweetest of all things.

    Only solitary drums hum.
    Occasionally I strum the guitar
    in an off beat frenzy
    to convey the emotional depth
    within me.

    The english language have
    not the capacity to speak
    of what I feel.
    Audacity of you
    to walk away so freely.

    Leaving me with a cross to bear
    silently.
    Inside I thought that I could have died
    cuz u were half of me.

    Half the universe,
    Half of my religion,
    Half of the heart and soul in me
    Half of the lyrics I spit
    You were half
    How did you forget that?

    Sometimes I wonder
    if any 1 has ever felt like this
    ever felt the collapse of love.
    As vivid as me

    Hi, welcome to the family.

    Loved this peace, it ran deeply. Tho lucky for me, i neva felt this way and you make it sound scarey. Speshly lovin the lines:My mama to cry nevah
    fo no man,cuz tha salt
    in tears would only make
    me bitter.

    Nice peace.

    *Emma*
