a heartbreak



A heartbreak is when you love someone
but don't get loved in return
and you are left to everlastingly burn

a heartbreak is when he says he is leaving you for her..
after he had promised you a happy ever after

a heartbreak is when he keeps smiling
and seems not to notice that the damge he had done has left you in pains bleeding

a heaartbreak is when you try your best to make it work...
only to find out that you've been hitting your fist hard against a brick wall

but above all... a heartbreak is when you lie still in a casket dead ... and all that was your dream now stands unfulfilled by your gravebed
for this type... you would cry tears of ruefulness and wish for another chance to smell the air through your nostrils so all that was your dream you could accomplish
but it would all be nothing but futile wishes to be eaten by worms of different species

so snap out of your ineptitude and start doing what your dream should do
