I love him so...
I cried as I drove home tonight

But you didn’t know.

I left my heart out in the air

And it cracked as it fell.

But it’s not the first time

My heart has been damaged or contused.

Can you not see

The pain that seeps out of me?

Sometimes I think I love too much,

And, while you love, it’s not as deep.

Should I stay and be in pain,

Or should I end it now while I am still sane?

I saw a glimpse of what used to be

When you returned last week.

My heart leapt and beat a million beats,

But now it’s slowed to a steady, simmering pace.

Do I no longer stir your blood

Or cause your body to heat?

If so, please can we end this now

And say once it was good?

I cried as I drove home tonight

But you didn’t know.

I left my heart out in the air

And it shattered as it fell.
