Meta – For My Broken Heart

October 27th, 2003

what is this love?
so seemingly not to be contained
dancing across my lips
leaving traces of the taste
so endlessly this pain
could it be i made an error in my haste?
and the fire flickers in the dying light
shadows playings across your features and
— for a while everything feels just right
and the hours will wash away, like water over sand —
my eyes wander, focusing on nothing
as i stay still, wringing my hands
somewhere i hear the lone tic-toc
the ever torturous sound
of the smug, mimicking clock
in my throat, my heart is caught
as sure as i thought i was
i now know that i am not
the embers burn on
but the fire slowly dies
and in creeps the dawn
but here i remain
my chest tight as I am
engulfed in a tide of pain
and i have no power to
control this flood of emotion
i will leave the saving to you
