If a shattered heart
please don’t shatter my heart
because you live there.
For my heart is weak without you
the birds within it no longer sing,
And under no circumstances will it ever be new
with another being.
My heart is like a piece of glass
that you have the power to break,
And although it isn’t precious brass
only you can stop the ache.
Without you I refuse to be free
Will you please come back and let my heart be?
Today, I feel so significant
as if I have the world at my feet
I can feel the strength running through my veins
And the last bit of trepidation leaving my soul
I feel inimitable, invigorated and unregimented
No longer will I be intimidated.
Today I am independent!
