JF (October 11,1990 / Miami, Florida)

Broken In Two

In two halves my heart stands tonite,
as I have one half in my hand,
and you the other you won in the fight.

As all I wanted was to say hi,
and with that you unleashed my eyes,
leaving my vocabulary to an, 'Oh my.'

As rivers have come from these eyes,
flowing waters of joy and sorrow,
and yet none for you, so I lie.

My soul does nothing, but tremble
as without my heart I am no one.
Leaving my mind free to dissemble.

As crazy for you I might appear,
not being able to show it clear,
without the other half of my gear.

Like a crippled machine without a part,
but its actually not very far from the truth.
As you have run away with half of my heart.
