Broken (collab with audio)

Image from Pinterest

You broke my heart in so many ways
but I never told you about any of them.
I covered them up with humour
and laughed at it instead.

I hoped you’d never hear the ache
in my voice during all the times we talked.
I smiled so you’d never see the loneliness
in my eyes when they connected with yours.

I had to silence my pulse
whenever we touched. 

I had to hide the stains on my mind
and the fractures my heart received.

You broke my heart because I loved you
I didn’t even tell you.

How could I?
I knew you didn’t feel the same.

By Secret Thoughts Within and John. A. Reyes

Thanks again to John. A. Reyes for a wonderful collaboration. Pulling this poem together and recording the audio was a blast.
