When we need a new start from a broken heart

No Thanks to the Ache and the Angst

by Tier V. King

You may have noticed that my smile is not the same,
and that the mere mention of your name
causes my wrestles with levels of mental
and then insane, untamed behavior can't even be tasered,
because this pain is no game - and is so inflamed
and the blame for this -is that last kiss,
our ended bliss.

Don't you remember when you proclaimed your love for me?

You explained the full reign that I gained - of your heart.
Don't you realize that - then you were a part of me,
so completely and so deeply.
That day you promised to keep me
even though you do know
that I'm not greedy or needy.

But then suddenly - you came to my home
to say that our love you've outgrown
and that you've disowned us to leave me alone,
but no thanks to the ache and the angst.

When love dies, the heart cries and our search for all happiness flies.
When it leaves then we wonder if it's ever achieved,
then we grieve for it -- but never believe in it.
There's no friend when trusted love ends.

The rips and the tears, they just are not fair,
then you dared not to care
as you walked around town with this new love you found,

same spaces, same places, and right in my face.

This broke my soul, my spirit and now I'm so livid,
but what I would give just to relive it.

You once gave me your heart but now
It's a target for throwing sharp darts.

You knew I was coping with broken
but now you have left me in hoping and groping,
I don't want to live - just singing the sad songs
about a strong love that suddenly went wrong.

Now, I'm needing a new start for my broken heart
so go with your date, I hope she's your fate.
No thanks to the ache and the hate that I face.
Not thanks for your sorry-s and lies of love stories.

No thanks to the ache,
and no thanks...

no thanks to the angst.
