Marble Heart

Heart of mine
sheds shards of tears
from the pain of wanting you
leaving cracks in the veined marble
where our tender love once grew
but now a mass of etched
ecstasy stained

You carved your way
into my soul only to leave
me alone, now it’s I who must pay
and pray for the peace needed to move on
the chasm you’ve left is vast and wide
for there will never be enough love
to fill where you once lay
I will be until time ends
in pain and all
The memories are
all that’s left where long ago
your name was written so now
I’ve naught but an emptiness
and the tailings left behind
pieces of broken songs
of a forever love
now gone.
