Careless words

bridge broken
trust torn
words spoken
faith forlorn

heart receding
into a shell
silent bleeding
no more to tell

words untrue
careless blow
never knew
this would hurt me so

didn't know
you ever could
leave me so

words unjust
lonely road
gone the trust
to share the load

guilt and pain
stone on stone
left again
to fight alone

no more sharing
didn't see
how much your caring
meant to me

no more sharing –
can't you see
the desperate cry
for help in me?

Who can show me the small,
bittersweet path to forgiveness?
