If only you knew of the destruction
You left in your wake;
It was in my heart to give,
But your motive was to take.
Like a hurricane
Ripping through my heart,
you tore everything solid down,
Leaving me to make a new start.
Like a tornado
On some southwestern plain,
You tore my world apart,
Slowly driving me insane.
Like a tidal wave bent on destruction,
you tossed me upon some lonely shore;
Deserted again, like some
Undiscovered treasure on a deep ocean floor.
Come back, I plead,
Undo all this damage you've done;
Like a hapless fly, I was caught
In the web of deception you'd spun.
Now I struggle to re-construct
The pieces of my life, shard by shard,
That you so mercilessly broke apart,
As you disassembled my heart.
