Before.

heartbreak

Before
you were burned
did you ever think
that a pain like this
existed

Before
your heart was stolen
and then broken
did you ever think
that you could feel
this much

Before
the lies were told
and secrets swept away
would you have thought
that people are good
and kind

Before
the rain came and swept
your dreams and hopes
away, down the stream
did you first
believe

After
a lifetime of fighting you fall
crumbling to the ground
wondering
if peace ever existed

After
endless nightmares
that have for so long
haunted you
you start to believe
life is but a dream

And
After
This pain you embrace
becomes a part of you
you see that people
end up

either
heartbroken
or heartless
