    What becomes of the broken hearted?



    I've tried loving, tried hoping that this could lead to place where I'd find peace

    But that was just as far fetched as the possibility

    Of holding on to someone else's property

    Perhaps it seems naïve but I loved loving you

    And you loving me

    So what happens now?



    We started simple not allowing labels

    To create fables in our perfect world

    You had an obligation, which was cool with me

    Because I wasn't interested in being your girl

    Emotions involved was a notion dissolved

    Never thought I'd care enough to say I loved you

    It was easy doing me, and allowing you to be you

    But soon I saw no one above you

    So what happens now?



    I've found not just a fling but a serious being

    That I'd lie if I said I didn't see future endeavors with

    But the lingering obligations of yours has turned into more

    That just a childish myth…

    Who are we to believe we can create house

    When you've built your home with someone else

    But who am I to sit around and fool myself

    Into thinking

    That I can put how I feel about you upon the shelf

    It's not funny how the clock tick tocks

    That's some bullsh*t if I've ever seen

    But the reality of this thing

    Turned into a nightmare beyond my wildest dream

    I love you but I hate me for loving you

    I hate you for loving me

    I hate you for not leaving her

    I hate me for intriguing blurs

    We know the inevitable would soon be edible

    But this loving is incredible

    This loving was incredible

    I have to cut my ends and regain what's left of my integrity

    Leaving no room for allegations or self reserved pity

    This is just a sorrow filled song, played for time from the time

    That we departed…

    even without you here

    I'm still left wondering what becomes of the brokenhearted?

    So what happens now?

    so often in time and space that heart will heal and move in a direction of a new love
    a stronger hold and sometime the broken heart is patched up only to leak again
    only time would tell where the heart may go......Faith is strong will is the key

    Broken hearts do heal, with the hope that something was learned along the way, and that the next time, and there will be a next time, you'll meet the right person for you. I felt the sadness in these lines.
