Poem By Danny Speicher

A broken heart is a broken spirit
It takes joy and humbles the soul
It feels as if a knife delves deep inside
And creates a never-ending hole
Some say pride comes before a fall
And pride is the danger to fight
Some say a broken heart could do you well
But, I cannot see the light
I've had many loves that haven't loved me back
I've seen many hearts come and go
Some say goodbye and leave me alone
Others keep me to toss to and fro
So, where are all the good girls, you ask
Where, oh where, could they be
They are in the arms of those who hate
Not willing to commit to me
I've seen so many people hurt
From the first day I was born
You would think I would know the pain
But, it's my ignorance, keeping me forlorn
So, here lays my heart, my broken spirit
Crushed, once again, by the one I love
So, once again I pray to God
To send me someone from above
