Heart Strings

I never thought I’d cry for you.

Perhaps I thought you’d stay

Near my heart and together do

What all broken hearts sing—play:

A song of grief and pain.

I never thought I’d cry for you.

How sad for broken hearts

To depart—to stray; even parts

Within our short entwined history

Can’t keep us syncing our story.

I never thought I’d cry for you.

Little you care for my tears. Love?

Is that why your tears won’t fall,

As I sink from clouds high above

Into wallowing despair? If you call:

I never thought I’d cry for you…

How painful is a lover’s song

Played on a heart string’s gong.

This one thing is surely true:

I’ll never play for you again.
