Iím Not Heartless

You left me too broken    
to be loved  
 
And I know what itís like †  
to try to love something †  
thatís broken †  
†  
youíre left barely standing †  
surrounded by ruins †  
of collateral damage †  
covered in blood †  
from wounds you didnít afflict †  
being punished for sins  
you didnít commit †  
scrambling to clean up the catastrophic mess †  
of your life †  
while they run off †  
with pieces of your heart †  
youíll never get back †  
†  
Having taken what they needed †  
leaving you depleted †  
with deep wounds †  
that may never be mended †  
†  
How do you consciously †
put that on someone else? †  

Iím not sure I could live with that
