Into Pieces

This is my heart

As it tears into pieces

All of my strength

All of my weakness

All that I’ve left

And all that’s behind

Is missing and mangled

And tangled inside

Everything’s broken

Yet everything’s whole

Things that I feel

That you’ll never know

A heartache so sweet

And I don’t have a reason

But this is my heart

As it tears into pieces

The Dance

Step, step
Shuffle
Side-step
One, two
Back up
Slowly
Not so fast
Take it down
Before it takes you

as my heart sensed something
wasn’t quite right with the relationship I was in
