Heartbreak Song

by Junemarie Roldan

There's a place in my heart
Its color is blue
There's a space in my heart
Where memories pour through.

Memories of long ago
And some that are quite new
It doesn't matter which they are
They all take me from you.

For I can't believe you love me
Though you often tell me so
I wonder when you'll tire of it
And turn from me and go.

So many different people
In and out of my life
My heart's like a revolving door
Torn with pain and strife.

Why does my heart go on beating
Day after hurtful day
Happiness has been so fleeting
And never does it stay.

This broken place inside me
Is bruised and battered sore
But just like a prize contender
I keep coming back for more,

For no one can ever give me
What I want from them the most
Because I'm not someone that's real
But the shadow of a lonely ghost.

A ghost that dwells in lonely dreams
Of shattered yesterdays
Remembering all the loves she knew
That turned and walked away.

They all took pieces of me
Until there was no more
They left me dead and empty
And hollow to the core.

There isn't any love left
Not even way down deep
So, I'll just wrap my heart up
And throw it on the garbage heap.

'Cause that's there where I really and truly belong
I'm not worth anyones trouble
I'm only but a heartbreak song
Buried 'neath yesterdays rubble.

I loved this piece; I could have written it. You schoed my feelings of low self esteem and your inability to acceot love and therefore, the emptiness sets in- creating a void that cannot be filled. I feel for you. This is a strong, sad piece- very well written. YOU ARE NOT WORTHLESS! You mean a great deal to alot of people. Do noit lose sight of that fact!

Excellent portrayal of a fear I think everyone has. Well written.

Its a heart breaking song. Life doesn't give you any thing. it demands and gives you back what you give it. Life demands life.

How often we have all felt such as this that you so eloquently express. Hopefully you will realize the real worth of yourself and find the valued treasure that you are... [;0)~
