Shattered Love

I walk the stony ground wrought in life’s pain
That echoes the tales of a broken heart
My tears lay lost in the rivers of rain
That mirror the sorrow inside my soul
Yet mere words have no thought on where to start
No solace nor comfort of joyful parole
For lines of poetry hold no caress
To bring love’s warmth against the winter cold
Yet now they utter the deepest distress
In thoughts the soul dares never to speak of
Of a lover who feels not brave nor bold
For his heart torn apart by shattered love
No solace nor comfort of joyful parole
For his heart torn apart by shattered love
