With tears, my eyes no longer overflow,
to go with my once loving but now cold heart.

My eyes open to the light that surrounds me

 yet everything seems so dark,

If my life has truly come to this point,

 how do I not fall apart?

Regardless of what happens,

I know that I am blessed,

 It's just troubling when reality hits you

 and leaves an empty, yet heavy, feeling in your chest.

Living on this side of empty

 barely enough to get a start,

with tears, my eyes no longer overflow,

 to go with my once loving but now cold heart.

After many struggles

 I see I've wasted years of my precious time,

When I think back to all the chances I've given -

how could I have been so damn blind?

I have often thought maybe I'm better off

 not even having a heart;

 I'd have no reason for feeling empty

 never again to fall apart.

I'm not letting this ruin the beauty I have within,

It'll take getting used to but again I will begin.

To anyone; If you are genuinely loved by another

I hope you are fully aware of just how lucky you are,

As for me, it's so long, take what you will,

But you're not walking away with my heart!
