Remember the first time you fell?
There was noone in sight
nobody to tell
you could feel your heart hit the ground
but when a heart breaks alone
does it make a sound?

Like the sound of crying babys
sobbing themselves to sleep
Like the weight of the world
falling at your feet

The never ending echo
of the beating and the pound
When a heart breaks alone
does it make a sound?

Can't they see I'm hiding
I don't hear a word they say
They just keep talking
and laughing
and acting like
I'm ok
They don't hear the noise I hear
but it's always around
When a heart breaks alone
does it make a sound?

great line and grand question indeed:

"when a heart breaks alone
  does it make a sound?"

well said!

hearts break so easily but they seem to endure to break many times over, each shattering a new piece but gaining experience.

nice write.

redwriter1, I really liked this.I am sure I  had it happen but was so busy I never seemed to find the time to notice. Now all these years later I wonder how I carried on at times.
Best to you.

Very lyrical. I like this very much.
Great stimulator for the lonely.

true love never looks after it's own interests

Thanks guys, I'm glad you think it is lyrical, because I actually did make this into a song. (smile)

When the heart breaks alone it does indeed make a sound- a beautiful sound...it continues to beat. I love the idea behind this. Enjoyed.
