Lyrical Musings an emotional journey via train of thought

Meta – For My Broken Heart

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
