A Million Pieces


I would break my own heart

Into a million pieces

And scatter them across oceans

Let each shard drift as far as it pleases

Just to keep you from fully possessing it again

A few may find their way back to you

For they’ll never quite shake the Stockholm

But I’d find comfort in knowing

A part of me would always be free

    Yes, we give up our most precious feelings and trust too quickly. That depth of hurt can haunt us for the rest of our lives.
