A Broken Hearts Song - Poem by patrick read

A Broken Hearts Song
April 2,2014 at 2: 44pm

A broken heart sings its own song.

Like a guitar with a broken string it keeps strumming along,

Like a piano with a broken key,

It plays its own harmony..

Like a drum with the skins busted through..

It relies on its own beat to get it through..

Yes a broken heart,

sings its own song,

has its own beat,

its own rhythm to carry it along..


it needs a shock to get it going again,

Like the shock of realizing someday,

In desperate hope,



may win..


a broken heart sings its own tune,

that only the broken hearted understand,

so if you one of us,

wont you join the band? ?
