Glass Hearts (A Broken Tune)

 

Falling asleep in the afternoon,

listening to a broken tune

of my glass heart.

Using me from the start,

saying “I’m just having fun.”

“I’m not hurting anyone.”

 

On a torn couch: a fool for love.

I should’ve been afraid of

getting hurt…

But here I am, feeling like dirt.

His words were cold, too:

“you think I had something for you?”

“Ugly, Stupid, Unsophisticated, WORTHLESS…”

I sit here reminiscing, filling my heart with depress.

 

Now with a broken glass heart, what do I do?

Duct tape won’t stay, neither will glue.

If some one's heart is glass…fragile like mine,

have them take my place in the love line.
