I was ten when my world fell apart

When my heart and my soul

Fell from my body

To dance in the black eternity

Of nothingness.

Ten is the age I ascended,

That I grew up

And could never go back to be mended.

The age when love became a lie,

When I saw my heart

Was fated to die.

Ten years ago I learned to lie

Never to trust anyone

Or want to cry.

My tears have long been shed

My hope has fallen apart,

Consuming my body

And my heart.
