My tears only need a slight reason to fall
They are not precious anymore
I don’t save them for the best days
I just pour them into a cup and
drink my sadness away
This heart has become a burden
It’s too heavy for me to carry
All the pain I’ve dissolved within
Is now singing like a canary
I sit alone in my garden
Watching the flowers bloom and decay
And my soul aches as it remembers
How it radiantly bloomed only to turn ash gray
There’s nothing left of me in myself
This body is just an old rotten shell
And within it is a beaten heart that has nothing
but a few miserable stories to tell
Which will eventually be forgotten
As time moves ahead in it’s unstoppable train
All these memories will disappear into the wind
Never to be held or felt ever again.
