My own disdain for the man I am

Created such a rift,

A burden you weren't meant to bear,

A boulder you couldn't lift.

You were crushed by the weight

Of my broken heart

Your kindness and love could

Not even start

My love machine to humming again

I had forgotten what

Makes a man.


(Your kind hope tried to defibrillate,

But I would not jump start,)

I have resigned myself to sadness,

Shut the door and closed the blinds,

Seems better than the madness

When some beauty rudely reminds

Me of what cannot be,

My heart forever cries,

Though thoughts of you keep me alive

All hopes of happiness died.
