I’m not too sure I’d not prefer-
Death, to life like this.
Lonely days and lonely nights-
Don’t fill my dreams of bliss.

Face another dreary day-
Each time the earth goes ‘round-
In the zone of broken hearts
Is where I’m always found.

Where’s the zone? one might inquire-
It’s just beyond the veil-
Which blocks the light of life from them
Who’ve tried at love and failed.

It casts a shadow on the mind-
A chill upon the heart-
And gloom to blind your weary eyes
And makes the teardrops start.

It turns your joy to sorrow-
Makes time drag on and on...
If you should enter, there’s no doubt-
That you are in the zone.

Within the zone no future lies-
No light, no dreams, nor hope...
Your day will be composed of sighs
At nights you’ll sit and mope.

Drop by and see me any time-
You’ll always find me home...
there’s always room for one more soul
Out here in heartbreak’s zone.

Very beautiful, but oh, so sad. Hope you're not suffering from that broken heart too long. Lifes too short for heartache.

Hi Gunslinger,

Such a muse, a zone of the heartbroken.  This drew me in to the end.

It’s just beyond the veil-
Which blocks the light of life from them
Who’ve tried at love and failed.


Rus
