Heavy

Heavy are the burdened hearts
when parts of them go missing
tainted are these salty lips
when tears come from their kissing
Empty are the sheets these days
when often we are sleeping
through my mind a heart designed
now broken in my keeping
No longer made the masquerade
that to the tock is ticking
it's not true the flame is through
upon my soul it's licking
Painful strikes upon the heart
when lies come through in kissing
heavy are the burdened hearts
when they don't know what's missing

Wow! So sad but makes perfect sense.
