Shattered


Here I am today,
Changed in every way.
For the better in part,
But for the worse in my heart.

Where once was love and trust without fail,
There is now a stone wall that no one can scale.
The sun that was in my smile has faded away,
And the dark gloom of night descends on me each day.

I have taught myself to no longer care,
And I find no comfort anywhere.
The nagging doubts are always there,
Of being hurt yet again, I must beware.

To be truly loved by someone is merely a dream
A beautiful flower I cannot catch as it passes in life's stream.
I believed I had found the one designed just for me,
But I know that is not how it was meant to be.

So, I exist from moment to moment, day to lonely day,
All the while knowing only heartbreak will come my way.
I am broken, twisted and shattered,
And I realize I never really mattered.
