Voices Of The Broken Hearts


We used to love them, we still do but
We don't wanna hear their names, it hurts
We say that we don't care,
Actually that's what our minds think
But hearts and emotions know we do
Nobody enjoys being single, we say we do
We hurt, we know deep inside it's not true
We promised ourselves we won't love again
Love comes, we can't fall, it brings back the pain
It just can't happen, we think people are the same
Even if we try it won't last, who to blame?
For us, there will never be a thing called moving on
Its like you're telling us to dance but without a song
The day I'm moving on, will be the day I'm gone

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
