I have two hearts

One for happiness

One for pain

Happiness should keep the pain away

My happiness heart used to filter pain out

But now it is broken and here's what about:

I was shot in this heart by cupid's arrow

I felt good at first but the feeling had narrowed

The love was mistaken to be something real

How silly it was for me to feel

I was sure that this love was going to last

I never thought it would leave me so fast

My happiness heart eventually broke

So my pain heart came out and said, she spoke,

"I'm sorry for what must now go through your veins,

It is my fault you must feel these pains"

She pumped and she pumped what was no longer warm

It was cold and sad and my mind was torn

I pushed all the feelings of sadness away

When my pain heart pumped some more through my veins

I want it to stop, I want it to end

But my pain heart has become my friend

So I let her be, while my other heart broke

But I'll miss the days that my happiness spoke
