Anguished cries that you donít hear,
Pain within and shedding tears.
Silent tears that you donít see,
Like acid drops my face does sear.
Your heart youíd given so whole and free,
Then you failed, and eluded me.
Ravaged heart and soul of mine,
A broken me you left behind.
Ruptured feelings you set within,
I learnt then, Iíd never win.
Tortured me and my mind,
Felt so foolish, so confined.
Crying like a lonely child,
I lashed out and went so wild.
Reaching out I searched for you,
All the more, just made me blue.
Pain within this wounded heart,
You ripped to shreds and tore apart!
