(Dedicated to all the sad hearts who may just be in need of a little pampering, and to the loving hearts whose beloved may seem quite down)

 

What if I tell you I’m in pieces?

What if I tell you I need time?

Would you reach out to me with kisses,

And tell me, Love, that it’s just fine?

 

Like thorns, my pain I can’t contain;

Like shards, my world is broke again.

Depart! Depart,

My troubled heart.

I cringe! I cringe—

All pain restart.

Too deep! Too deep—

Can I still breathe?

O help! Love, help—

It’s hell beneath!

 

Can you not see that I’m in pieces?

Can you not see that I need time?

Come and reach out to me with kisses,

And tell me, Love, that I’ll be fine.
