Tormented Heart


Once… Then once more, I thought I knew true love
Twice I gave my heart, twice I felt true pain
Thoughts, dark and dreary, twice have filled my brain
Now I wait life to be all I dreamt of

Clouded are the skies when I think on her
And clouded when I try to understand
Exactly when my love ripped from my hand
How those solemn farewells, leave me unsure

Was it moments before the last depart
Was it months before when first their heart knew
Or, had they all along felt love askew
No matter, here am I, tormented heart

Others may come, and may sadly depart
No matter, here I’ll be, tormented heart
