Garden of Broken Hearts

A.N. So many song-poems like this…I’m starting to sound like Taylor Swift. 0.0

Every night we walked together
Beneath the stars and pale moonlight
You kissed me and said, “I’ll always love you”
I should have known that was a lie

You left me behind the fountain
You left me with open arms
I love you, but now I’m broken
I walk alone beneath the stars

Every night, you’d turn the lights off
Sing a song, and say good-night
I loved you, but now you’ve left me
Shrouded in eternal night

You left me between the roses
You left me still wrapped in starlight
Your memory will haunt my days
Your absence kills me every night

I love you, but you don’t love me
We were one, but then you left
Stole my mind, and stole my heartbeat
My whole life is now bereft

I loved you, inside our garden
I love you, and that’s the truth
You’re long gone, and though it hurts,
I can’t stop me from loving you


Don’t Miss Me

Mama, I wish I could tell you
That you mean the world to me
Every night, I hear you crying
But you hide, so I don’t see

You’re in pain, but I can’t help you
Your heart bleeds, but I’m not there
Can’t you hear me calling softly
Sending kisses through the air?

I know well the day I left you
You cried so hard, I thought you’d die
Calling, “Please, come back, my baby!”
But there’s no road from death to life

You’re in pain, but I can’t help you
Your heart bleeds, but you’re alone
My hug falls through empty spaces
And in the dark, we’re on our own

Mama, I wish that I could help you
Mama, I wish that I was there
Though I moved on, I still can hear you
When you’re in my heart, you’re everywhere

So, please don’t cry, ’cause I can’t take it
I hear your pain, and curse the day
That heaven sent its finest angels
To come to Earth to take me away

Mama, please, don’t cry so much
Mama, please, don’t miss me so
Mama, soon, we’ll be together
But I will wait for you, don’t you know?

Mama, please, my heart is breaking
Mama, please, just let me go
I love you, so please don’t hurt me
Please, Mama, don’t miss me so!


A.N. Why, oh why can’t I put some of this to music? ;.(

And WordPress spacing is becoming verrrrrrrry annoying…

Don’t call me tonight
I won’t be not around
I’ll be out with another
A new love that I’ve found
A new life without you
So don’t ask me to stay
The love that we had
Has faded away

Don’t call me tonight
I’ll be dancing on air
I’ll be out with the owls
On a dark street somewhere
So don’t wait up for me
Because I won’t come back
The passionate flames
Have faded to black

Don’t call me tonight
There’s nobody home
You won’t find me waiting
On my sofa, alone
So don’t waste your time
Go try other things
Because if you call
My phone will just ring

Growing Alone

Growing up is Growing Alone

And nothing is forever…

We’re children twice, and times crawls by

For the very old and the very young

But, in the middle, life’s a blur

The soul’s on fire, and love’s astir

The secrets in the dark foretold

As secrets for a soul are sold

The world’s a chase, we hurry through

Fires blazing, yet nothing to do

But in the dusk and dawn of life

Time elongates the pain and strife

The old look back on lives they knew

While children laugh their whole lives through

But the one thing they always seem to want

Is to hurry up and grow on up

But nothing is forever, you know

And growing up means growing alone

Children think growing up is exciting, everywhere

You turn is something new to see, new to do, new to be

Grown-ups can have all the fun

They can stay up all night and see the sun

Rise in the morning, then go to bed

Or watch TV, if they’d rather, instead

Or read the books on the highest shelf

Or go to the store, or the cinema, or anywhere they jolly well please.

But nothing is forever, you know

And growing up means growing alone

Once you reach a certain age

Your story is written on a different page

You’re an adult now, so act like one

Doesn’t matter if your ready, it’s what’s expected

There’s no time more to be protected

By parents and friends, so off you go

Time is moving faster, now that you know

And you might have fun, that is, until you fall

And there’s no one there waiting for you to call

At times like this, you’re realise that

You’ve finally grown up, at the drop of a hat

Everything comes together, and now you can see

Growing up isn’t everything you thought it would be

And when all the doors have locked, and all the ways are barred

You’ll realise that, maybe, you’ve been living too hard

But nothing is forever, you know

And growing up means growing alone

Freedom is Loneliness, as you stand there and watch

Everyone you ever loved leave you

Everything you ever knew change you

Yes, you’ll be free, but at a terrible price

One in which fate has already cast the dice

Do you want to be free?

You don’t have a choice.

Fate’s hand moves over the sky

And everything you ever loved tells you good-bye

A phone call tonight, and Granny is gone

Faded with the movement of another setting sun

Tomorrow, another, is it Grandpa or Ben?

Everything you ever knew changes, and then,

As soon as you move on, another disaster strikes

And the gravestones multiply in vertical stripes

You kneel in the grass, remember the day

When each of your loved ones slipped away

My brother, my sister, my neighbour, my friend

All met their makers in an untimely end

I don’t remember Brother, but I remember Sister well

And every time I hear her name, I hear the echo of a knell

It’s not just death that makes us move on, it’s life itself, too

That boy you knew in high school sure as hell won’t remember you

Yes, nothing is forever, you know,

And growing up means growing alone

One day, my parents won’t be here, and I’ll be all alone

No friends, no siblings, not even a dog to even call my own

Everyone is gone, and I’m grown up, and that’s the way things are

From now until the day I die, that’s the way things are

Growing up means looking in the mirror

And seeing the faces of the dead

Staring back at you

The faces of traitors and lovers alike

The faces of the past

The faces that didn’t last

Growing up means going to a funeral

And knowing the person who once

Lived in that body

Not just a name

Because you feel the pain

Now, you start to understand

What it means to be alone

Because you are alone


You’re full grown

Petals at Night

Petals in the moonlight lay

Scattered on the ground

And all our hope was washed away

By the tears streaming around

In the dim light I could see

A shadow of the past

What we were, what we could be

But none of it could last

The wind blows petals through the night

And nothing else remains,

Save the memory of a fading light

And a multitude of pain

So I alone will walk along the path

And leave my past behind

I’ll push aside the hurt and wrath

And reignite my pride

I’ll walk along, and I’ll be strong

Because that’s all there’s left to do

All the times you did me wrong

Make it easy to go without you

I don’t need you, you’re a festering sore

That hurts much more than it should

So I’ll move on, I’ll take no more,

Though I wouldn’t if I could

So I’ll just count the petals lying

On the ground around me

And I’ll refrain myself from defining

My life by those around me

The petals will be blown away

Just like my thoughts of you

And the best part our of all of this

Is that there’s nothing you can do

To Love an Angel

This is a rather childish verse. The sentiment is sweet, I suppose,  but the rhyme and rhythm are forced. However, you might still enjoy it, so here it is. ^.^

Angels are fluttering, feathery things

They float in the clouds on white satin wings

They’re pure as the moonlight and bright as the sun

But make sure that you never, ever fall in love with one

They’ll wear down your heart, yes, that’s what angels do

Such heavenly creatures were not meant for you

They’ll smile and they’ll wave, but their gestures mean naught

Yet all this you’ll learn when, by an angel, you’re caught

They spin a fine web, without meaning to

They’ll capture your heart, then they’ll capture you

You can spend your whole life side-by-side with their wings

But one day they’ll leave you to do other things

Angels aren’t meant for Earth, they’re meant for the sky

And there’s no other ending, than saying good-bye

Your angel will leave because it isn’t right

For a beautiful angel love to burn quite so bright

So be careful where you walk, and be careful who you love

That person who you’re watching might be an angel from above!

But they’ll break your heart, so you have to walk away

And look for another — that is the only way.

The Batman

Like the Caped Crusader himself you

Fly into my dreams and arrest my train

Of thoughts just before it flies of the cliff but

As soon as the sun touches my eyes I

Find that you’re gone, just a shadow in my

Imagination, another ghost in my past.

It’s five seconds to midnight, and all of my lights

Are flickering as the bombs count down my final

Seconds of living and you’re battling the Joker on

Top of the building and I wonder if you can see me all the

Way down here, if you even know me or care that

It’s my life you’re fighting for even though you’ve

Never met me and I only see you in my dreams.

But you’re too late, I’m already broken, the

Shards of my soul have been scattered by a different

Villain, and there’s nothing left for you to save but the

Ashes that could fit in a pill bottle if you really tried.

So fly into the night and save some other girl because

This one’s already broken and her love is broken, too.

I’m just another broken dreamer waiting at the

Window for a superhero to appear, but no superhero

Wants a girl whose too far gone to ever be whole again.

Words Fade Away

You’re here in the pages of the books that I write

A presence which falls like an untimely blight

You stain all my words and you blot all the ink

With the tears that I lose every time that I think

Of what we used to have, and how we used to be

But now all I can write is how you’re not here with me


I’m here at the end of the story of us

Where the words that I wrote weren’t enough for your love

And I know, you’ll be there, I’ll be here,

And all these words will fade away…


You’re here in the chapters of books that I read

Each new page reminds me of your love’s disease

You haunt every word that I read through the day

Reminders of that time when you slipped away

And every first kiss is our last kiss goodbye

Each fairy-tale ending makes me want to cry


I’m here at the edge where our story began

A cliff — one more step, and my story will end

But you’ll move on, right along,

And all these words will fade away

Like I’ll fade away…


I’m here at the end of the story of us

All the words in the world weren’t enough for your love

So I’ll step away, slip away

And everything will fade away

And you’ll fade away…


Fairy Tale Gone Wrong

Once upon a time, I heard the story of a princess

Locked up in a tower of stone

She was beautiful and kind and dainty and polite

But she was living all alone

Waiting for a prince to sweep her off her feet

And wrap her in a sweet romance

But a princess like this just couldn’t be real

That love wouldn’t stand a chance


This life’s a fairy tale gone wrong

Can’t find an ending where I belong

Nothing turned out right

Nothing good in sight

Don’t know where I’m going when the sun goes down tonight


Once upon a time there was a pretty peasant maid

Who kissed a frog beneath the full moon

And in my dreams I see a mermaid queen

Swimming in a clear lagoon

But those are just stories, fantastic distractions

Nothing like I thought it would be

My story’s ending’s the perfect disaster

No happiness here for me


This life’s a fairy tale gone wrong

Can’t find an ending where I belong

Can’t figure it out

Nothing but doubts

Don’t know where I’m going when the lights go out


I wish I could change it all, but I know I can’t

No magic wand or words to help me enchant

I’m lost and alone in this fantasy verse

No happy ending left, just an everlasting curse


This life is a fairy-tale gone wrong

Can’t find an ending where I belong

Nothing turned out right

Nothing good in sight

Don’t know where we’re going when the sun goes down tonight
