There is never just one line...
How her heart breaks
Like the broken wings
Of a sad little butterfly
She is fragile
And needs his arms around her
Like a shield against the pain
But he is gone
Lost to her in another life
Another world
Where she can never intrude

She reaches for him;
In the arms of so many others
But they cannot fill the void
Can never fix the broken shell of her heart
They could never mend
What he took from her
Though she seeks it every day

She gave it up way back then
She gave it to him
When she crumbled to dust
And whether he knew it or not
He took it with him when he left
Her heart,
Her soul,
Her love

She became a ghost
Transparent Invisible
Trying to live
Trying to be free
Of a past that left her lessened;
Left her sad
Left her alone and
In a molten sea of bittersweet despair

She thought time had buried the delicate ache
Had shred down the disappointed longing
And she had decided long ago
To let go of the hurt
To forgive and accept
But a moment and a memory returns
Touches her
And again she is on her knees

Heart in hand
And lost
He has that piece of her
That makes her whole
