So Unfair To Wake Up A Heart and Not Be There
Author: Terrie*


have you ever felt the pain
of a broken heart?

come close to me
open the palm of your hand
press it firmly but gently
up against my left breast

touch it, feel it
see it, hold it
hear it
come close and taste it

taste the pain that waits inside
allow yourself to become a part
of my broken heart

do you feel the faintness of my heartbeat?
can you feel it quiver and shake from bein' alone?
can you see and feel it crying
of the pain that it continues to release?

can you hear it's cries searching for arms?
can you taste the pain of the tears
that coat and drown it?

can you see through the darkness,
the light that wants to shine through?
can you feel the smile that is bottled up
waiting inside for you?

you got the chance to listen and hold the emptiness
and the of pain from a missin' love

sometimes what I want to say
never comes out right

thatís why I had you reach deep in
hold my pain in the palm of your hand.
so that you may understand
what distant love
does to me
when it makes no time

now you understand...
the tears that flow from my heart
when you chose not to share a moment of your time.

my heart hasn't pulled away
and a promise that it never will
stands above all to know

I just wanted you to feel ..
this heart of mine
that I gave to you

now you know...
this part of you..

------- Author's Notes -------

sometimes it is so unfair..
