With a heavy heart I sleep tonight,

the broken heart you left behind.

And while my tears keep running free,

I am being consumed so silently.

You said too much and you explained,

but it doesn't justify my pain.

The pain, the hurt that you ignored,

and everything else that I abhor.

And here I am with so much fright,

and there you are thinking you're right.

What am I supposed to do?

How am I supposed to bear?

How simple it seems for you,

as if you don't even care.

My heart was one I could not share,

you came along, and love is there.

And yet you left while I am still here,

picking up pieces and drying up tears.

So careless and so vain,

What of my pain you have to gain?
