My heart didn't just break, it turned to dust
I never thought I would feel so hollow
Maybe his feelings were made up of lust
I can't belive I ever did follow

The great times we have had, all gone to waste
His face was so serious as he spoke
This whole relationship blew up in my face
Those very last words made me want to choke

I lay in bed as I hear my own cries
A picture of us on the bedside table
The way I'm feeling makes me want to die
All this time what I thought was real, was a fable

Now that it's over and we have to part
I am left to deal with my broken heart

The author's comments:
It hurts when someone you love breaks up with you. This is my way to deal with it.

This is written so well... I really needed to look at this... I now realize I'm not the only one who is dealing with heartache like this...
