I'm counted by most as being strong

Because it took fate so long to break me

I tried so hard to stop it but the bad just keeps on coming

I looked to love to save me from this darkness

And through most of it, a barrier was made

But even love has turned on me, just up and left

It pretends it's still there but I can't feel it anymore

How long can someone hold back their tears

And hide away their pain

Hot tears fall like rain and bring no comfort

This person I was is slowly withering away

And this withered empty shell remains

How much can one heart take?
