How many pieces in a broken Heart

© Jeffrey Hellman 1991





You came to me

You brought the spark

That glowed like perfection

When life seemed so dark


Now I lie thinking

Sifting the air

Tracing a dream

That would end in despair


How many pieces

In a broken heart

One for each lie

Each thoughtless remark


One for each moment

We'll now be apart

Counting the pieces

Of a broken heart


It was not the pain

No that came and went

You were so vain

I could live with that


You never loved me

You just lived the part

The truth when it came

Shattered my heart
