My heart is damaged beyond repair.
No one to pick up the pieces or even care.

My heart lies bleeding, battered and bruised;
ripped apart by lies and completely misused.

My heart use to beat with the hope of something more;
to find true love and have my innocence restored.

But those hopes and dreams have long been shattered;
as my heart hangs limp in shredded tatters.

True love and happy endings are such childish things.
To be put away beside my broken dreams.

When the loneliness comes to invade my soul,
it creeps in and threatens to consume me whole.

Then I’ll reach out to someone...anyone again;
in the hopes of feeling something, even though it’s pretend.

So here I am damaged from what I’ve been through,
broken and crushed and my heart torn in two.

I want to give up and stop believing it’s real,
to ignore the longings of true love that I feel.

So many hearts are damaged beyond repair,
people pretending not to notice or even care.

Because inside they know that they’re damaged too;
and are scared that somehow, we will see right through.

Damaged hearts and souls that wander about,
desperate for love, but too scared to reach out.
