Mirror of Heartbreak

The remains of a war unseen
A bloody heart shredded
Unable to hold love anymore
Washed by a torrent of salty tears
Falling from the eyes of the blind
Wandering in an invisible world
Existing but not living
In the fiery hell of torment
Visceral pain a potent anaesthetic
To caring for anything
Never wanted to be a maven of heartache
But the battles keep coming
The harder the search for the one
To tender to the heart and protect
That magical answer of someone else
When the hunt should be within
The solution in the sadness of the mirror
