If Walls Could Cry....

by *Charisma*   Jan 26, 2008

Turned the lights down low
I've got nowhere to go
Nothing better I should do
Than sit and think about you

Turned a sad song on
And with it sang along
I didn't know the words
But I understood the hurt

With a broken heart
I begin to fall apart
But that's okay tonight
No one's here to fight

So I'll cry a few more tears
And let go of my fears
Not a soul around this place
To see the pain leaving my face

This night is just for me
And the way things used to be
I'm tired of acting fine
Or telling pretty lines

If I break down, then good
I'll feel like I should
Once I hit this all time low
Not much farther I can go

Maybe then I can heal
Allow this heart to feel
It's been so hard to pretend
When I'm breaking down again

The truth is in these walls
Only they can see my fall
If they could talk, they'd cry
Just like I plan on tonight...

    Aww I know the feeling of a broken heart and it sucks cuz u seem like you are all alone and no one feels ur pain. Its hard to get over bt you will. I'm in the middle of that now. Great poem though 5/5

    It sounded like a well versed song.. maybe Joni Mitchell would have sang those lines, once.. You have taken a common subject, and given it a personal slant.. Well done. Fantastically written. xx
