the loneliness in my heart screams so loud
it shatters me inside and out

If I could shatter
Charlotte Emma Lewis

If I could shatter
into a million pieces
I would spread myself across the world
So that there could be a part of me
Settled in every place
Maybe then I’d find a home
For each little broken bit
Because if I don't belong
In one place
Then maybe I can find
Safety in many  
Maybe then I’d finally feel whole
For if no place has all of me,
Then nothing can break me

But that's not exactly true
Because there is still the Earth

And perhaps the wind will sweep
A fragment of me up
And drop me in the ocean
Maybe the ocean will take it
And work me down to nothing
Maybe somewhere else
A fire will burn me up
Or maybe the rain will come
To wash me away
Maybe a storm will pound me down

Maybe I will turn to dust...

Dust that covers this earth
Dust that will spread
across the Universe

one day i might

shatter

these glass walls
and trudge with
weeping
blood across the
broken
shards

Just shatter.

Nowhere left to go
Standing,
At the crossroads
Just a man.

Searching the sand
For his fingerprints,
Lost
So long ago.

Echoes of yesterday
Mirrors across today

Almost time to die.

Frozen tears never fall
They,
Just shatter.

Shatter me like the glass

It would be quite easy
for you to break me
Shatter me like the glass
I didn't know my heart was made of.
I'll repair like stone
And turn colder
But wiser?
When it comes to you
It seems as though my heart of stone
Turns to fragile glass
At any given moment
I think of you.

Shatter
Crumble
Burn
Break

I am
An empty cup
A broken cistern
Run out
Dried up

I am
An empty room
All but gone
What will I be?
Where will I go?
My hope it fades
The darkness rolls
Why?
Why another mountain?
Why another storm?

I don't know if I can run again
My legs already weary
My heart already weak
A hear a song
It sings out loud
Through my tears
Hope will come
But now I hurt
Now I break

I need a guide
A light for my path
Before the demons come
Before they steal my soul
Devouring all I am
Let me stand
For 'ere I fall

A high cliff
A broken mountain
Fight, fight, fight

Run
Run for the hills
Run for freedom
Tears streaming down your cheek
A hole in your heart
No plug for the leak
No words to speak

Run
Behold
Let the sun rise
If it can
If I can stand.

Im gonna run from the torment until it turns to laughter forget to dream cause i can't deal with my past
Pretend like today doesn't hurt
Ill be fine suffocating on my mask
Im living in world made out shadows and fear
One day this world is gonna shatter
And ill be right here.

I saw her and thought I'd shatter,
Michael Humbert

With her, I knew no control,
Consequence, tragedy,
Still take their toll

I saw her and thought I'd shatter,
I gasped, clutched my heart,
Ripped and tattered

She looked like heaven incarnate,
I felt like hell, struck,
Cursed love, damned fate

I must shatter this ice for it coats all of my feeling

I must shatter this ice for it coats all of my feelings.
The ice freezes my heart more with each second I am encased.
But what may I do to be sure to replace
this cold with a warmth that lies in an embrace.

I must melt, but I will freeze whomever tries to save me.

I watched it shatter

I saw my heart break
I watched it shatter
It sat in pieces on the floor
And you asked me "what's the matter?"
As you walked towards me
I cried out in pain
You stood on the shards
And I felt your weight on my veins
You stared at me with a look of confusion
As if you couldn't see the broken mess
And you walked away
But that didn't make it hurt any less
So I sat on bloody knees
Trying to mend what was broken
After you crushed my heart
And left without a word spoken
