Given For Free

by Lainie Reay   Oct 30, 2019


The tears are free falling down my face,
It still didn't stop you walking out of this place.

I'm lying here, my heads in a mess,
Yet all I can feel is an emptyness.

You told me you loved me forever & would always be true,
Yet one day you changed that, when I saw her with you.

Gone is the love that you'd given to me,
Broken is the heart that was given for free.

The hopes & the dreams that once made me life,
Now shattered forever like a blow from a knife.

Dark are the days & darker is the night
The darkness never leaves with the switch of a light.

Love is so hard & life can be tough,
Though nothing I had ever seemed enough.

This leaves me now with only one thing to say,
What can be given for free can so easily be thrown away.
