You broke a thousand hearts

on your way to mine

you tore through a thousand lonely souls

and shattered a thousand dreams

before a twist of fate

brought you to my door


Now you’ve moved on

following the scent of loneliness

down a trail of desperation

to another victim

one who smiles unaware

just like I did in the months before


But time will be kind to me

as it is to most gentle souls

though we break like twigs

in the howling winds of today

the rains of tomorrow make us strong

and let us grow into a forest that can never be broken


You will remain hollow, empty and weak

even as I grow stronger

and some day love will find you

following the scent of your loneliness

and it will break you with ease

a rotten tree falling to a draft


So even as I cry for you

and nurse my broken heart

I offer no words of anger

nor carry any ill desires

For your fate is your own

and destiny spites you enough

while I’ll miss you on lonely nights

I can not hate what I pity so much

nor condemn that which has condemned itself
