Heartache From Heartbreak

Heartache from heartbreak will sober your soul.
Burns through my conscience like smoldering coals
Slow and constant, little joy to be had
I cannot deal with the good or the bad.

Reflections on memories get frozen in time,
Emptiness and pain rule the reason and rhyme.
It’ll humble your spirit and weigh on your heart.
Making me wonder why we ever did part.

The heartache from heartbreak will temper your soul
No passion or beauty, it is so hard to see
What really went wrong between you and me?

Help me stop blaming myself for mistakes that we made.
Why didn’t we fight for the love that we had or
For one another when we were so young?
So tell me my darling what could have been done!

The heartache from heartbreak will temper your soul
No passion or beauty, it is so hard to see
What really went wrong between you and me?
